Hessenschau: Virtual synagogue in Marburg

Nice report on Television

Everyday life in Marburg: Traffic rushes along University Street at the foot of the upper town. Next to a university building from the 1960s, a digital display board shows how many free spaces there are still in the parking garage.

And opposite at number 11, right next to the bus stop, there is the synagogue. It is as if the building were still there today, in the middle of Marburg. At least virtually.

The destroyed building can now be experienced digitally for the first time, with the help of so-called virtual reality glasses (VR). The Marburg IT company INOSOFT reconstructed the synagogue in digital space and inserted it into the current cityscape.
