Nuremberg old town Frauenkirche (#2782)

Nuremberg old town Frauenkirche  (#2782)
Hyperactivity? Not only the intricacy of the masonry, but also the number of statues around the doors, and of course the multiple gold figures under the clock.

Far more serious though, is that Frauenkirche was built (between 1352 and 1362) on the site of a former synagogue. It could be placed there because 600 Jews were killed at that time due to being suspected to be the cause of the plague.

I know that Jewish people have been persecuted in all places all throughout history, but I'd never heard that they were blamed for the plague.
