Chronicles of the Jewish community Fuerth 1933-1943 #general


Willie Glaser
 

In 1943 the last secrecetary of the Jewish community in Fuerth, Miss Grete
Ballin was ordered by the Gestapo Nuernberg-Fuerth to compile a record of
events in the community covering the years 1933-1943.
The "Ballin chronicles" are the only known existing records of the
"Isrealitische Kultusgemeinde Fuerth" of that era. In 1943 Miss Grete Ballin
perished in the Holocaust.

Excellent work, Willie!
I read your translation with the great interest.

Would be you or perhaps other Genners explain differences between:
"ordinary mixed marriages", "privileged mixed marriages" and
"Geltungsjuden".

I understand those are classifications established by the racist Nuremberg
laws. But I am confused as to the meaning.

Thanks

My ancestors are >from the neighbouring Wallerstein.

Rabbi David Weiskopf (1798-1882) is buried in the cemetery. The grave is still
standing.

Rabbi Mordechai Kohn (1823-1888) who was the son-in-law of Rabbi Weiskopf is
buried alongside.

His daughter, Chajo, is my greatgrandmother.
