Platz der alten Synagoge (The plaza of the old synagogue)

A plaza associated with atrocities and death throughout its history was given a breath of new life and joy in 2017.

The synagogue once stood here, until it was burned down during the Night of Broken Glass in 1938 and the gruesome story of Jewish persecution began. Today, a memorial fountain in the shape of the synagogue’s ground plan recalls days past, but at the same time stands for modern design and the joy of living. Children frolic in the refreshing water, while adults watch the colorful goings-on and relax on benches underneath shady trees. Water means life, and so as well as serving as a memorial, the old synagogue plaza has become a lively meeting place and a new, urban center for Freiburg.
