Germany: New Synagogue in Berlin

On 8th August arrived the four cards I sent to myself when I recently visited Berlin.

One of the cards shows the New Synagogue. It was built between 1859 and 1866 as main synagogue of the Berlin Jewish community. It survived the Kristallnacht but was damaged in the World War II. From 1988 to 1993 it was rebuilt. When you enter it you have to go through a metal detector like the ones at an airport.

With nice Jewish-themed stamp:
Erfurt Treasure (issued 11-02-2010)
