Summary: Synagogues are complex, highly significant and polyvalent spaces of religious, social, economic, architectural, and artistic developments in Jewish culture. At the same time, they reveal the interdependencies on the surrounding cultures. Ever since the Shoah, historic synagogues especially in Europe have gained high importance as focal points of remembrance and education. This volume presents selected papers of the 3rd International Congress on Jewish architecture “Synagogue and Museum.” The conference at the Technische Universität Braunschweig focused on examining the worldwide phenomenon of synagogues in and as museums within an interdisciplinary perspective. The papers discuss theoretical and historical approaches as well as practical examples from Austria, Brazil, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Poland, Russia and the USA.
