The Jewish Synagoge

The Jewish synagogue consecrated in 1911 was built by the architects William Lossow and Max Hans Kühne for the Jewish community in Görlitz, which had grown remarkably until that time. Being the only synagogue in Saxony remaining undestroyed during the pogrom night in 1938, it is a monument of national importance today.
