In 1705, the Jewish Community of Bielefeld was founded. After the premises of the first synagogue became too small for the growing community, a new synagogue was built 1905; it was torched on Kristallnacht. Today, a Synagogue Memorial marks the site. The fire was filmed by an amateur film-maker and is one of the few movies recording the events of Kristallnacht. Today’s Bielefeld synagogue, Beit Tikwa, was opened in 2008.
