New Synagogue | Berlin, Germany

Quote:
from http://www.courses.psu.edu/nuc_e/nuc...goge.html]here
After a seven-year construction period, the Jews of Berlin dedicated the synagogue in 1866, which is located on Oranienburger Straße. This splendid synagogue, which represented the self-confidence of the Jewish community in Berlin, was designed by the architect, Eduard Knoblauch, who selected the Alhambra in Grenada as a model. The design strongly embodies oriental building elements. The two small towers look like minarets, and the large cupola has a height of 50 meters and is decorated with gold-gilded ribs. During the Kristallnacht (night of the broken glass) of 1938, the Nazis devastated the synagogue; and, in 1943, a bombing destroyed the construction further. In the late 1950s, the Communists demolished the remaining ruins. After the former GDR had liberalized its political position on Jewish institutions, the work of rebuilding the synagogue began. The Centrum Judaicum, opened in 1995, is located in the present-day building. It is a museum for the history of Jews in Berlin and for the synagogue.

Would be a ten-pointer if it wasn't pressed in the middle of the other buildings. I love it. It's in Oranienburger Strasse, isn't it?
