Nuremberg Synagogue place 1915 and 2015


At the shore of river Pegnitz until 1938 was the Great Synagogue of Nuremberg. As landmark it was one of the most often depicted synagogue sites in Europe on dozens of different postcards, photographed as well as painted – quite different from synagogues in other towns in the very region, such as Munich with just one or two synagogue postcards or Augsburg, with no prewar postcard.

The very same perspective today has no indication to the synagogue. How there is a memorial site at the bridge, suggesting the synagogue was exactly there .. and way smaller (“An dieser Stelle stand …”) …:
