The Joseph-Carlebach-Platz Synagogue Monument
The Joseph-Carlebach-Platz Synagogue Monument, designed by Margrit Kahl, marks the former location of the Bornplatz Synagogue, once the largest synagogue in Northern Germany until its willful destruction during Kristallnacht. The plaza is named for Dr. Joseph Carlebach, who was the last Chief Rabbi of Hamburg. In 1941 he and his family were deported to the Jungfernhof concentration camp and murdered.
