Michelsberg Synagogue Memorial


The site of Wiesbaden’s largest pre-war synagogue, built in 1869 and destroyed in 1938, is marked by a memorial that includes an outline of the structure (in dark paving stones on the footpaths and street) and historic photos and biographical information on 1507 Wiesbaden Jews who perished in the Holocaust.
