"Most of the synagogues in Frankfurt were severely damaged or destroyed by the Nazis on Kristallnacht. These included the synagogues at Alt Heddernheim 33,[6] Börneplatz,[7] Börnestraße,[8] Conrad-Weil-Gasse,[9] Freiherr-vom-Stein-Straße,[10] Friedberger Anlage 5-6,[11] Hermesweg 5-7,[12] Inselgasse 9,[13] Marktplatz (Ortsteil Höchst),[14] Obermainanlage 8,[15] Ostendstraße 18,[16] Rechneigrabenstraße 5 (Niederhofheim'sche Synagoge),[17] Schloßstraße 5,[18] and Unterlindau 21.[19]

"The deportation of the Jewish residents to their deaths in the East quickened in pace after Kristallnacht. Their property and valuables were stolen by the Gestapo before deportation, and they were subjected to extreme violence and sadism during transport to the stations for the cattle wagons which carried them east. Most ended up in new ghettoes established by the Nazis such as the Warsaw Ghetto before their murder in camps such as Sobibor, Belzec and Treblinka."
