Fodor's Expert Review Synagogueplatz

Heidelberg Historical

The site of the former Heidelberg Synagogue, built in 1877 and burned down on Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass) in 1938, is now a memorial to the local Jewish population lost in World War II. Their names are listed on a bronze plaque on an adjoining building. On this residential corner, 12 stone blocks represent the synagogue's pews and the 12 tribes of Israel.
