The Destroyed Synagogues of Vienna

Virtual City Walks

By Bob Martens, Herbert Peter

This book is devoted to the former Viennese synagogues that were destroyed and thus disappeared irretrievably from the face of the city. With the help of computer-aided design and rapid prototyping, a working group was able to virtually rebuild the destroyed synagogues. Historical photographs and plans from the time these synagogues were built are contrasted with the virtual reconstructions. Together with the accompanying texts, the book provides a complete image of the individual houses of prayer. Of particular interest are the re-creations of the urban fabric that place the destroyed synagogues in the context of the present-day city. (Series: Stadtbildverluste - Vol. 4)
