The TripAdvisor location pin is at the center of Gottschedstraße because they evidently don't have a street number. The memorial is close to the Thomaskirche end off the street, opposite number 4.

The monument itself is unaccesible, but located in a very peaceful quainy area without much movement. Really sombre setting, perfect for the meaning.

Visit and compare the memorial under the DDR that makes no mention of the Jews and the one obstructed after the fall of the communists that is far more explicit and striking. Then, go to the synagogue that is... More
