Willkommen in Deutschland


The old synagogue hasn’t existed in Trier since it was burnt out on Kristal Nacht in 1938. Allied bombing finished the job in 1944. There is supposed to be a memorial of sorts but I missed it. Apparently this signpost used to have a message in German ‘Hier stand die frühere Trierer Synagoge, die in the Pogromnacht in November 1938 durch die Nationalsozialisten zerstort würde.” (Thanks www.alemannia-judaica.de) Either it fell off; was vandalised or I found the wrong signpost.
