Since the dedication of the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Wiesbaden in 2011, ongoing research has identified other people who were murdered in the Shoah and who have a biographical connection to Wiesbaden.
The addition of these names to the memorial site in 2023 prompted the Wiesbaden Jewish community to present information online about the creation of the memorial site at Michelsberg.
In addition, all previously researched names of Wiesbaden victims of the Shoah are now available online for the first time.
A holistic picture emerges of Jewish life in Wiesbaden from its early beginnings until the Shoah; then the re-establishment of the Jewish community in Wiesbaden and onto the flourishing community here today.
The basis of this website is the documentation published by Wiesbaden’s urban development agency, the SEG (Stadtentwicklungsgesellschaft) in 2011 on the occasion of the dedication of the memorial.
The Jewish community Wiesbaden would like to thank everyone who contributed to the creation of the homepage, the members involved and the cultural office/city archive Wiesbaden.
