Jews in Fulda

In memory of Jewish life in Fulda

Every year, students from 9th and 10th grade Bardoschule secondary school in Fulda have the opportunity to participate in the "Fulda - Auschwitz" project, which covers the entire school year. The Jewish life in Fulda is explored, with the focus on the period of nationalsocialism and the murder in Auschwitz.

 

Finally, each project group travels for a week to the memorial in Auschwitz to learn more about the fate of  the Jewish residents from the city and the county of Fulda and to memorialize those who perished there.

During a historical tour through the city of Fulda, the students of this year's project noticed that traces of Jewish life are hard to find.

What can we do to make the past visible? How can we give a name to the families who once lived in Fulda until their deportation or forced emigration? How can we share our experience with others?

 

This website is one result and is dedicated to all the Jewish families and individuals who once lived in Fulda
