The synagogue in Lindenstrasse was built in 1881 and was one of the largest synagogues in Berlin. It had approx. 1,800 seats. Due to the restricted space the reform synagogue was built in the  backyard of Lindenstrasse 48 – 50 (Today, the Axel Springer Str 48 – 50)

The accommodation for rabbis and rooms for organisations were in the  front building
During Progromnacht the inside of the synagogue was partially destroyed. Although the building itself was still intact services didn’t resume. In 1939 the Reich Office converted the building into a  grain silo.
The building was massively destroyed during the Second World War. In 1956 the ruins were demolished.
Today you will find the building of a  mutual insurance. Zvi Hecker, Micha Ullman and Eyal Weizenman built a memorial in the backyard of this modern building. The seats are based on the ground plan of the former synagogue.
