The New Synagogue


The New Synagogue in Berlin was built in the 1860s to serve as the central synagogue of the Jewish community in Berlin. It has a unique Moorish style and considered to be one of the most magnificent buildings in the city. Chancellor Bismarck himself inaugurated the synagogue.

on the night of November 9th-10th, 1938, the Nazis set fire to synagogues throughout Germany, including the New Synagogue. A police officer managed to disperse the crowd and allowed the fire department to put out the fire and save the building. Later, the Nazis turned the prayer hall into a warehouse. During WWII The structure was damaged by air bombs, and after the reunification of Germany, they started to renovate the dom and the front of the synagogue. The main praying hall was not restored.
