Jews lived in this small town for exactly 400 years, from 1543, until the last were deported to Auschwitz. Built in 1781 and destroyed inside on Kristallnacht, the magnificently restored Ichenhausen Synagogue, with its stained-glass windows and gold-and-blue trompe-d’oeuil ceiling, re-opened in 1987 as a museum. It contains exhibits on Jewish life and has become a cultural center dedicated to Jewish-Christian understanding and to the memory and widening of European Jewish culture.
