The Association of Patrons and Friends of the Former Rexingen Synagogue and the Protestant Church Parish Dettingen-Horb cordially invite you to a week of bible studying.
What is sitting shiva? What does a chevra kaddisha do? What is jahrzeit? And where exactly are the six Jewish cemeteries of Horb located? The latest exhibition in the Jewisher Prayer Room Museum in Horb will answer these and many more questions.
On the night of November 9th to 10th 1938, the synagogues and prayer rooms of Jewish communities all over Germany and Austria were destroyed. More than 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and taken away to concentration camps.
Among the 1,200 Jewish Concentration Camp prisoners who were allowed to leave for Switzerland shortly before the end of World War I, was the five-year-old Czech orphan, Pavel Hoffmann.
On European Day of Jewish Culture, Professor Wolfgang Benz reports on his research on Norbert Stern, writer and scholar (1881 – 1964), a blind man who survived the Concentration Camp in Theresienstadt.
