Alexander Dettmar

Painting to Remember. Germany’s Lost Synagogues
“There were about 2,800 synagogues and prayer houses in Germany around 1930. On 9 November 1938, and over the following days and nights, National Socialist ruffians destroyed more than half of them. In the years that followed, other Jewish houses of worship were either “aryanised”, used for other purposes, or torn down. With them, a component of Germany’s architectural heritage was largely lost (...).
Alexander Dettmar aims to salvage that lost architecture from final oblivion by reconstructing the destroyed synagogues in paintings.” (Stefana Sabin)
