Virtual Reconstruction of Germany's Lost Synagogues

SYNAGOGUES IN GERMANY: A VIRTUAL RECONSTRUCTION

During the Nazi era, over 1,400 synagogues were destroyed. Through a student initiative at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany, several synagogues have been virtually recreated using computer aided design, revealing a rich and diverse architectural history. Manfred Koob and Marc Grellert (Darmstadt University of Technology) and Carol Herselle Krinsky (New York University) will show the re-creations and provide historical and contemporary context. Co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies, Science & the Arts, and the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa).
