In 1987 various political groups and organisations joined the citizen’s movement demonstrating against the destruction of the ruins of the former Jewish ghetto. Their demand: The relicts should be preserved and made accessible as a living history experience. The so called Börneplatz-Konflikt can be seen as a major event in German-Jewish relations. As a compromise, the building plans were revised in favour of a new museum on the ground floor, and the foundations and cellars of five buildings were rebuilt to the original blueprints.
