Great thread! There are several synagogues recntly built and u/c here in Germany, the 2nd fastest growing Jewish community in the world after Israel!
Some communities do still have their old synagogues that survived the Nazis,... Essen is one example.
The most beautiful synagogue I've seen so far is the one in Budapest!!!

Amsterdam has been home for many Jews for centuries. Although they were treated a different from other people, they always feeled save and at home in Amsterdam. In the local dialect there are still Yiddish words used. The nickname of Amsterdam is "Mokum" which means "place" or "safe haven" in Yiddish.

Sadly many were deported to nazi concentration camps during WW2.

Great Synagogue from 1670 (4 synagogues + expansions), today the complex is in use as the Jewish Historical Museum
