Events - Former Rexingen Synagogue

Type: Theater
Date: October 9, 2019
Time: 8:00 pm
Venue: ASV Rexingen clubhouse

On October 9, 2019, the Theater Lindenhof (https://www.theater-lindenhof.de/) will perform its play “Chaim & Adolf: Eine Begegnung im Gasthaus” (Chaim & Adolf: A Meeting in a Tavern) in the Rexingen sports club. This play is not performed in theaters but in taverns. The stage directions say, “There have to be 1 sausage salad, 4 beers, and 1 wheat beer as well as additional glasses.” This should not be a problem in the Rexingen clubhouse; the theatergoers can look forward to food and service as well.

 “Chaim & Adolf” is a chamber drama with a double bottom, a play full of wit, verve, and depth. Chaim Eisenberg, an Israeli with German roots, annually returns to the same Swabian village, the same tavern in order to go hiking. He is lacking something in this countryside idyll, though: a suitable chess partner. Bu the tavern keeper knows someone: Adolf, a farmer. Hesitant at first because of Adolf’s name, Chaim eventually does get involved in a chess game. It turns out that Adolf is an intelligent, quick-witted, and humorous partner. While playing, a conversation about their personal family histories unfolds. Is there more that connects the two than just their love for chess?

Jean Améry, born as Hans Meyer in Vienna in October 1912, was one of the most important European intellectuals of the 1960s and 1970s. A philosopher and author, he dealt vividly with his experience in Nazi Concentration Camps in his collection of essays entitled Beyond Guilt and Atonement, an indispensable work in German literature on the Holocaust. All five essays, including "How much Heimat does one need?",  are still highly relevant today.

The artist K.H. Schmeißer, born in Bad Wurzach in 1957, lives and works in Horb-on-Neckar. His preoccupying - almost exclusive - theme is the human figure. His work is an artistic study of the human form, its existence, its nature, its ambiguity. He paints an honest, unsparing picture of humanity, devoid of pretence or masquerade.

World War I raged for four years, with a fatality rate hitherto unknown. It left in its wake a “lost generation”, traumatized by war experience in the trenches and confronted with suffering, loss and misery in the homeland.
A local section of the exhibition concentrates on the fate of Jewish soldiers from Horb, Rexingen, Mühringen, Nordstetten and Mühlen. Who were these men who went to war for Emperor and country and what happened to them afterwards?

Type: Documentary film
Date: May 12th and 13th, 2014
Time: 8 p.m.
Venue: Subiaco Cinema, Freudenstadt

The documentary film ‘In Search of the Last Jew in My Family’ records a family’s efforts to follow the trail of its Jewish grandfather, murdered in 1942. The film-makers, Peter Haas and Silvia Holzinger, will be present on both evenings.
This event is jointly presented by the Association of Patrons and Friends of the Former Rexingen Synagogue, the County Adult Education Centre and the Catholic Adult Education Programme, Freudenstadt.
