This book is devoted to the former Viennese synagogues that were destroyed
and thus disappeared irretrievably from the face of the city. With the
help of CAD (computer-aided design) and rapid prototyping a working group
based around the two authors was able to virtually rebuild the destroyed
synagogues. In this guide historical photographs and plans from the time
these synagogues were built are contrasted with the virtual
reconstructions. Together with the accompanying texts they provide a
complete image of the individual houses of prayer. Of particular interest
are the recreations of the urban fabric that place the destroyed
synagogues in the context of the present-day city.
