This is the site where the Jewish Museum's historical displays continue the story up to the modern day. The exhibits mostly contain books, photographs and documents covering the 18th-century beginnings of Jewish emancipation and enlightenment, the period of assimilation in the 19th Century, the catastrophe brought about by Hitler and his willing executioners, and post-war efforts to revitalize the community. The synagogue itself dates back to 1868. It is a dazzling, Moorish-style structure and its two-level, domed hall can be said to be one of the city's most stunning interior spaces.
