"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


The synagogue in the suburb of Geestemünde was destroyed on Kristallnacht; a new Jewish community was founded in 2000 with a new synagogue in a former American military barracks. Bremerhaven’s German Emigration Center was honored with the “European Museum of the Year 2007” award and provides a fascinating view of the process of emigrating to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
