Memo­ri­al for the mur­de­red Jews of Wiesbaden

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.
