We remember people who were connected with the former synagogue in Steinsfurt.



The inhabitants of Steinsfurt always seemed at ease: “No Jewish person was deported from Steinsfurt".

But this is only part of the truth.

Even in Steinsfurt there was one immediate victim of the pogroms in November 1938.

We also remember the persons who lived in Steinsfurt and were deported and murdered from the place where they later stayed.
