The synagogue in Gronau-Epe, built in 1907, was undeveloped after a pillage and arson attack on the night of the Pogrom into a fire equipment building. Later it served as a temporary home for the German Red Cross.
Content of the construction survey carried out by AHB was the photo documentation of the current inventory. In addition, special sites had to be set up at selected locations in order to obtain an overview of the fire damage and the original building fabric. The results of this investigation, in conjunction with literature and archival research, serve to re-evaluate the construction history of the building.
