Guided Tour: Tracing Jewish Life in Oberursel

On Sunday, 20 August 2017, the historian Angelika Rieber once again offers the tour Tracing Jewish life in Oberursel.
In the 90-minute tour around town, Ms. Rieber talks about the history of the Jewish community and  some local Jewish families.

On 19 October 1941, deportations of Jews from Frankfurt began. Within a year, more than 10,000 people were deported and murdered in the extermination camps. Numerous Oberursel residents of Jewish origin did not live to see the end of the Nazi regime and the Second World War.

The city tour is about the integration of Jewish neighbors into the town life, as well as the discrimination and persecution during the Nazi era.

The city tour goes from 2.30 – 4 pm and starts at the St. Ursula-Brunnen in the market square. The touring fee is three euros per person.
