Hamelin (Hameln)

Jews have lived in Hamelin, the town of the legendary “Pied Piper,” since the Middle Ages and the town was the source of one of the most noted works of Jewish literature, “The Memoirs of Glueckl of Hamelin” – written by a woman, that was noteworthy in itself – gave a rich view of 17th century Jewish life in Germany. The Hamelin synagogue was destroyed on Kristallnacht and a new community was established in 1997.
