The Jewish Synagoge

The house of worship, consecrated in 1911, was built by the architects William Lossow and Max Hans Kühne for the Jewish community, which had grown considerably at the time. It was the only one in Saxony not to be destroyed by the pogrom night of 1938 and is today a monument of national importance. Since 1991, the Art Nouveau building has been extensively restored. In 2021 it was reopened as the Görlitz Synagogue Cultural Forum and is accessible for tours and events.
