Towns and Cities throughout Germany

Should your travels lead you beyond the larger cities of Germany, you will continue to find a country rich in Jewish history and culture. In the small cities below, you will discover memorials, museums, synagogues and Jewish Community Centers worth stopping at.

Jews have lived in Bayreuth since the Middle Ages and despite its modern-day persona as a „shrine“ to composer, Richard Wagner, the Jewish community of Bayreuth was never affected by the outspoken anti-Semitism of the composer or his circle. The Bayreuth synagogue, dating from 1760, was ransacked on Kristallnacht, but a new community was established after World War II.

Famous for its cathedral and its eclectic Town Hall, Bamberg has had a Jewish community for most of its history. Bamberg has a modern Jewish Community Center whose wood-paneled Synagogue has colorful stained-glass windows. Bamberg’s Holocaust Monument recalls the synagogue destroyed on Kristallnacht and to those who died. It stands at Synagogenplatz. In the Bamberg Historical Museum visitors can see a scale model of the gorgeous wooden synagogue from the Franconian village of Horb.

In this tiny village northeast of Stuttgart , the synagogue, built in 1851, was part of a large complex containing a Jewish school and residences and was, thus, not destroyed on Kristallnacht. The prayer hall was wrecked, however, and restored in the 1980’s as a museum and memorial. A permanent exhibit on “The History of the Jews of the Lowlands” is installed in the one-time schoolroom and teacher’s apartment, and the former prayer hall houses an exhibit on “Religious Life in Judaism.”
