Student Efforts
Inspired by a 1994 arson attack on
a synagogue in Lubeck, students at
Darmstadt (Germany) University of
Technology Architecture Department
initially created an exhibit about
three synagogues. Now,
they have explored 16
synagogues in 14 cities,
studying this important
chapter in German
architectural history —
synagogues.
"In beautiful, full-
color restorations based
upon eyewitness inter-
views and blueprints
on file in German cit-
ies, the exhibit details
the diversity, splendor
and significance of the
Ruth Adler
synagogue in the coun-
try's urban architectural
history from the early
19th century until 1938," according to
exhibit materials.
"Our students at Darmstadt
University of Technology dedicated
themselves to recreating this part of
German culture nearly wiped out in
one night:' explains Professor Marc
Grellert."Our mission was to make
this culture visible once again, using
the latest technology to show the
beauty and importance synagogues
played in Germany."
The exhibit is divided into three
spatial units. Visitors first will view the
Nuremberg Laws of the 1930s in their
original wording depriving Jews of
their rights. These laws were a precur-
sor to planned attacks on synagogues
and places of prayer in November
1938.

The second section shows the extent
of the destruction, including photos of
destroyed synagogues and their cities
of origin.
The third section demonstrates
the process and final outcome of the
virtual reconstruction of
the selected synagogues,
using CAD and three-
dimensional concepts.
Included is the elaborate
simulation of syna-
gogues, some dating
back to the 1860s, from
a number of German
cities including Cologne,
Hanover and Plauen.
These buildings are pre-
sented in varying stages
of virtual reconstruction
and augmented by video
Schnee
and slide projections
and computer printouts.
Visitors explore the
buildings' facades and interiors via
virtual computer screen tours:'
Actual artifacts preserved from the
destruction also will be shown.
"This stunning exhibit brings to life
a significant part of German culture
destroyed in one night',' said Stephen
Goldman, executive director of the
Holocaust Memorial Center. "Anyone
with an interest in architecture, tech-
nology, art, history or the Holocaust
will find it fascinating:'
