Jews have lived in Wiesbaden since the Middle Ages and today there is a flourishing Jewish community. The Altisraelitische Synagogue from 1890 was damaged on Kristallnacht, but was still usable in 1945 for the reestablished community. The new Wiesbaden Synagogue opened in 1967. The city’s Geschwister-Stock-Platz is named for two Wiesbaden Jewish children murdered at Sobibor. The Active Museum in the Spiegelgasse for German-Jewish History in Wiesbaden traces the city’s Jewish past and present.
