Great Synagogue of Brussels: Raking view of facade
In the 19th century, responding to the Age of Enlightenment, Great Synagogues were built in many capitals of Europe to show that Jews were full and free citizens. The synagogue survived the Holocaust in which 25,000 Belgian Jews died. Renamed as the Great Synagogue of Europe in 2008, dedicated as a focal point for European Jews.
