Moving Away

Since around 1870 many Jewish persons moved from Steinsfurt since there was not enough scope in the small village. In 1933 there were only 32 Jewish persons in Steinsfurt.

After the beginning of the Nazi regime even more emigrated. The few remaining members of the Jewish community were forced to sell the Synagogue in October 1938.
