Speyer St Magdalena Convent

St Magdalena Convent
Church of the St Magdalena Convent

If you come from the cathedral over the Sonnenbruecke into the Altstadt you head directly towards the St. Magdalena convent, which exists since 1232 and is a Dominican convent since 1304. The most famous nun was Edith Stein, who because of her jewish descent was later deported to Auschwitz and killed. There is a plaque at the entrance to remember her.
