Very moving and an audio that describes the events. A little understated as i walked passed it twice without noticing but a great time of reflection.

I was interested in reading the names of the victims. They were many and I was overwhelmed by the big number of them. For some reasons I was sorting the young ones who were murdered. It is a good stop to honor those innocent souls.

My wife an I came across this memorial unexpectedly. There is a portion in English as well as German. Very sad part of Germany's history. Its good to see some recognition of that, even if the sign lays the blame solely on the "Nationalist, Socialist...More

its easy to walk past, but harder to stop and read what's written on this moving monument. A few walls, tranversed by a road in between, but this is where stood of the largest and important synagogues in Germany. Come the War and it's burnt...More
