"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


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.”
