Jews have been settling in Dresden ever since the 13th century. Even August the Strong used Jewish money to finance the Polish crown. In 1839/40 Gottfried Semper built the second synagogue in Dresden, which was destroyed during the Pogrom Night in 1938. Victor Klemperer’s diaries talk about the Jewish life during World War II for the individual Jew. The Holocaust was a major turning point for Jewish life also here in Dresden.
Today we can see the new synagogue which was awarded a renowned architectural prize in 2002. (no inside visit included)
