On Kristallnacht, the synagogue in the small rural village of Nentershausen, Germany was damaged, but not destroyed. In 1987, the derelict building was dismantled, moved to Hessenpark in Neu-Anspach and carefully rebuilt, the witness to Jewish presence. Join author Stephen Denker, who will discuss his book, "The Nentershausen Synagogue," about a Jewish community in Germany, before and after the years of Nazi tyranny, told through the stories of the community's cherished synagogue and two of its surviving families.
