Kiddush Goblet Returns to Rexingen

 

Stephen Beiner, attorney at law from Boca Raton, Florida, and his wife Judy visited Rexingen in mid-June 2016. On the Jewish cemetery, they visited the graves of Stephen's forebears, the Ottenheimer family. 

A further event entitled 'How much Heimat does a human being need?' - complementary to the exhibition 'Is that a human being?' - took place in Rexingen on March 1st. The artist K.H. Schmeißer was present. Peter Binder, radio presenter from Südwest Rundfunk, read extracts from all five essays in Jean Améry's mercilessly honest book  Beyond Guilt and Atonement . The tangible quality of Améry's descriptions led the listeners through the horrors of the Holocaust, from its inception with the anti-Semitic laws of 1935 to its catastrophic culmination in the extermination camps. 

On Holocaust Memorial Day, an exhibition of K.H. Schmeißer's paintings entitled 'Is that a human being?' was opened in the former Jewish synagogue in Rexingen. The paintings show figures with obvious human contours, all in various stages of disintegration.
