"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


Jews lived in the village of Hemsbach from the 17th century until 1940. The Romanesque Synagogue, dating from 1845 and destroyed on Kristallnacht, was restored in the late 1980s and is now a state landmark. The synagogue serves both as a memorial to the former Jewish community and the base for a support group for the former Hemsbach Synagogue which, since its founding in 1984, sponsors tours, exhibits and lectures designed to „preserve the memory of the former Jewish citizens of Hemsbach.“
