Virtual Synagouges

Today is the 65th anniversary of the Kristallnacht, the 'night of broken glass' when Nazi mobs destroyed 101 synagouges and thousands of Jewish businesses. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in1989 (also on this date) and the surge of Jewish immigrants from Russia, many synagouges are being rebuilt. Today the cornerstone was laid for a new Jewish center in Munich.

vowe and itw both point to the Synagogues in Germany project, in which synagouges are being vitually reconstructed by architecture students and made viewable online.
