Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the synagogue in Berlin is lit up at night

And has a plaque honouring the German policeman who called the fire brigade on Kristallnacht.

But as far as Munich is concerned, the Jewish community is something else. When I lived in Munich, I though of joining, but they insisted on proof that I was Jewish, such as my mother's Ketubah, to be approved by the Rabbi. This, despite the fact that the conversation was in Hebrew, and I didn't have anything more to do with them. I gather that this doesn't happen elsewhere in Germany.

As for rootless2 finding a S-Bahn station called Dachau disconcerting, imagine what I felt when seeing a German bus with DAH plates while walking early in the morning from Jersey City to Hoboken....
