Flehingen, Baden - Seeking photographs of the synagogue. #germany


John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

The Jewish residents of Flehingen, Baden who perished in the Shoah are
the subject of a new book mentioned on Alemannia Judaica.

The book's author has asked me for help finding photographs of the
synagogue in Flehingen both before and after its destruction.

Two of my grandfather's siblings married WEINGARTNER siblings >from Flehingen.
On another side of his family, my father had 9 BARTH first cousins
from the same little town. Just today, I've found photos of one of
them, Herbert BARTH b. Dec 07, 1899, his wife Gerda nee WOLF from
Baisingen and their 3- year old son George BARTH b. 1933.
That family and mine sailed to New York together on the last voyage of
RMS Majestic - January 29 - February 6, 1936.

That said, I probably don't have photos of the Flehingen synagogue in
spite of the several family ties to that Gemeinde.

Anyone who can provide photos of the building can assist in the
creation of a virtual reconstruction of the destroyed synagogue.

***** Please help us find some photos ! ****
