Jews have lived in Wiesbaden since the Middle Ages. Today, there is a flourishing Jewish community in this elegant city a few miles from Frankfurt am Main. The Altisraelitische Synagogue, built in 1890, was damaged on Kristallnacht, and after its tortured history as a wartime deportation center for Wiesbadenís Jews was still usable in 1945 as a synagogue for the reestablished community. The new Wiesbaden Synagogue, complete with impressive stained-glass windows by Egon Altdorfer, opened in 1967. In the courtyard of todayís Wiesbaden Jewish Community Center is the last remnant of the Michelsberg Synagogue that was destroyed on Kristallnacht; students and teachers at the Wiesbaden University for Applied Science have created an extraordinary "virtual reconstruction" of the synagogue that can be viewed at www.memo38.de. There are numerous memorials in Wiesbaden to deportations and destroyed synagogues, at Poststrasse 7, Rathhausstrasse 37, Bernhard Schwarz Strasse 7 and at Alexandrastrasse 6.
