Built in 1857-66 as the Berlin Jewish community's showpiece, it was the New Synagogue that was attacked during Kristallnacht in 1938, but not too badly damaged - Allied bombs did far more harm in 1945. The façade remained intact and the Moorish dome has been rebuilt. There's an exhibition about Jewish life in Berlin and a glassed-in area protecting the sanctuary ruins.
