This synagogue is a memorial to the Jewish Holocaust victims, and all 77,297 names are inscribed on the walls of the main nave and its adjoining areas. The names are arranged according to location prior to deportation, and presented in alphabetical order. Both sides of the Holy Ark are inscribed with the names of ghettos and camps to which Jews were deported. All of these inscriptions were compiled from card indexes, drawn up shortly after the war from extant transport papers, registration lists, and survivor's accounts.
