It was almost unparalleled in both size and elaborate design. The architect was the renowned Eduard Knoblauch, who constructed a building rich in illumination, gilding and ornamentation. Due to the involvement of the chief of Police, Willhelm Krutzfeld, the synagogue was not burned down during the November Pogrom (often referred to as "Kristallnacht") on November 9th, 1938 and continued to hold services until 1940 (including a Passover celebration in 1939). It did, however, suffer severe damage through bombings in 1943. ISince 1988, the synagogue was reconstructed to its original look and inaugurated in 1995. Bookseller Inventory # 15775
