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 stonework of the plaza follows the vaulting of the ceiling in the destroyed synagogue.
