Architecture, identity, memory – Synagogues in Germany since 1945 @ Town Hall, Emmendingen, Germany
Oct 12 @ 19:00 – 20:00

A lecture by architectural historian Dr. Ulrich Knufinke.

The lecture is part of jubilee events marking the 25th anniversary of the reestablishment of the Jewish community in Emmendingen. Seating is limited due to coronavirus measures.

 The lecture examines the history of synagogue architecture in Germany and focuses in particular on those buildings that were built after the Holocaust. Their often remarkable, even challenging design raises the question of what role synagogues play today in the image of our cities.

Ulrich Knufinke is an architectural historian and monument conservator. For many years he was a research assistant at the Bet Tfila – Research Center for Jewish Architecture in Europe at the Technical University of Braunschweig. He currently holds the professorship for architectural history at the TU Braunschweig and works at the Lower Saxony State Office for Monument Preservation.
