Willkommen in Deutschland

Rhein-Moselle_0002

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.
