Jewish Community Centre, Mainz Germany- Manuel Herz

In almost no other city have Jews been persecuted so often throughout history, and have still time and again attempted to build up a Jewish community as in this so seemingly serene city of Mainz. Thus, almost paradigmatically the Jewish Community Centre embodies hope, learning and an unshakable belief in a future, and at the same time the destruction of Jewish culture and people over more than one millennium.
