- This is the site where the Jewish Museum's historical displays continue the story up to the modern day. The exhibits are mostly books, photographs and documents covering the eighteenth century beginnings of Jewish emancipation and enlightenment, the period of assimilation in the nineteenth 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.
