Looking up at the facade of the New Synagogue on the Oranienburger Straße in eastern Berlin. This magnificent building dates from the 1860's and was renovated in the 1980's, the final years of the GDR.
In 2004 there is a permanent armed police presence outside the synagogue, such are security sensibilities at this time.
