Photograph of the Synagogue for Bernard Grunberg's home town of Lingen, Germany.

Further Information

This photograph forms part of the Bernard Grunberg Collection. Bernard Grunberg was born in 1923 in Lingen, Germany, and lived there with his parents and sister. The photograph has been stuck onto a white card background, which states that it is a picture of the Synagogue in the town of Lingen. The writing below this states that the Synagogue was built in 1878, and destroyed in 1938. The Synagogue had been attacked and destroyed during the November Pogrom. Due to the increasing danger from the Nazi regime and persecution of Jewish people, Bernard was sent to England on the Kindertransport when he was 15 years old. Once arrived Bernard spent some time in arriving children's camps before becoming a farm hand. Bernard later married and has been a prominent speaker at the NHCM. Bernard's father, mother and sister were all murdered by the Nazi regime.
