Jewish synagogue

He designed the building's interior and the religious objects as well. Since only Catholic buildings were places of worship permitted to stand adjacent to major streets, the Synagogue was fitted into an apartment complex: This is the reason that it was the only building, of 94 Jewish synagogues and temples, to survive the November pogroms of 1938 (November 9-10) without being completely destroyed.

Memorial site for Jewish Victims of the Shoah

This memorial site in the foyer of the Vienna Stadttempel Synagogue was opened at the end of 2002. It is a memorial for the 65,000 assassinated Austrian Jews, whose names are engraved on rotating slate tablets. In the center of the memorial, which was created by architect Thomas Feiger, a broken-off granite column symbolizes the Jewish community of Vienna, which was destroyed in 1938 by the Nazis.
