Inscription, in German:

Dieses Gebäude wurde im Jahr 1888 von
der jüdischen Gemeinde erworben und
diente als Synagoge. Fanatismus und
Hass führten am 10. November 1938 zu
seiner Verwüstung. Die jüdische Gemeinde
wurde zerstreut, viele ihrer Angehörigen
wurden deportiert und ermordet.
Bürger der Stadt Öhringen wollen daran
erinnern und nicht vergessen.

„Geschehene Dinge lassen sich nicht ändern, aber man
kann dafür sorgen, dass sie nicht wieder vorkommen."
Anne Frank, 7. Mai 1944

Translation: This building was purchased by the Jewish community in 1888 and served as a synagogue. Fanaticism and hatred led to its devastation on November 10, 1938. The Jewish community was dispersed, many of its members were deported and murdered. Citizens of the city of Öhringen want to remember this and not forget it.

“Things that have happened cannot be changed, but you can ensure that they do not happen again." Anne Frank, May 7, 1944.
