Blick nach Osten in der Synagoge mit der GedenktafelThe WWI-Memorial in the Synagogue

In the synagogue there is a memory plaque for the victims of World War I from the Jewish community in Steinsfurt.

This memorial was donated by Else Vogt from Philadelphia and by Samuel Weil.

Probably it was painted before 1928 because the date of Ludwig Freudenthaler's death is written by another hand.


The Hebrew inscription on the memorial is taken from Psalm 118. It means „I shall not die, but live (and declare the works of the LORD)”
