Synagogue, Dresden: 6 reviews and 11 photos

  Above the door of the New Synagogue
by Nemorino

During the destruction of the old synagogue by the Nazis in 1938 a Dresden fireman risked his life by saving the Star of David, which he returned to the Jewish community after the war.

In the courtyard between the new Synagogue and the Jewish Community Center there are lines in the ground showing the outline of the old synagogue.
