Johanna Diehl: The Ukraine Series at Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, comprises views into former synagogues in modern-day Ukraine. Victims of the anti-religious political doctrine of the Soviet Union, they were stripped of their original purpose in the years between the two World Wars and some were turned into municipal centres, such as cinemas, sports halls and clubs – roles which they often still fulfil today. Religious life moved from the synagogue to the private realm.
