Joseph Zürndorfer, flight lieutenant from Rexingen, left us this testimony: “As a German I went to war to protect my troubled country but also, as a Jew, to win full, equal rights for my fellow-Jews”.
With the help of biographies, letters from the Front, photos, diary-extracts, headlines and announcements in newspapers in Horb, this section conveys the particular tragedy of this war and its consequences for Jewish citizens.
In a general section set up by the Centre for Political Education in the State of Baden-Württemberg, the effects of the war on the daily lives of the people are shown in contemporary images and testimonies. Here special focus is on the war as experienced by children and young people.
Group visits are also possible during the week but only by appointment. Contact for groups and school classes.
