It is hard for me to rate this museum because it was ALL in German. No English translation at all. The synagogue on the top floor was beautiful

You cannot take pictures inside the synagogue but the book they sell is very informative and lots of pictures. Jüdisch history to read. Prominent jewish people lived in Augsburg. The synagogue is inside beautiful and at the same time sad. So glad it was rebuilt.
