GAILINGEN - a general query #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>

My great grand father Salomon Daniel BLOCH (1857-1894)
lived, and is buried in Gailingen-am-Rhein, just
across the river >from Diesenhofen in Switzerland. This
town had a large Jewish community for its size, but, I
have recently learnt, was until the mid 1860s, hardly
connected to the rest of Germany by land. What was the
'appeal' of Gailingen for its Jewish residents. Can
anyone point me in the direction of literature that
deals with Gailingen's Jewish history, please? {I have
access to very good libraries!]
