Toward the end of the 19th century, a Jewish community began in Merano. A famous doctor built a Tuberculosis Sanatorium. The hot mineral "spa" Made Merano a tourist attracion. In 1901 the Jewish Synagogue was built. They had the Caesar's permission to do so, and they marked the date on a special memorial plaque. After WWII, no Jews were left in Merano. [reminder: 6 million Jews were murdered during the war, from all over Europe]. Now the synagogue is a museum, which tells the story of this community.
