Lern- und Gedenkort Jawne

In the location's words:

Stops: Appellhofplatz, Friesenplatz

The first - and until a few years ago the only - Jewish high school in the Rhineland was located at the Jawne Learning and Memorial Site. Until its forced closure in 1942, Director Klibansky succeeded in creating a shelter for his students. In 1980, the Corbach couple contacted former students of the Jawne to collect unique testimonies from all over the world. From reports, historical photos and documents a piece of contemporary history was created, which keep this place alive.

"'Poland Action'"

The exhibition of the photo artist Sabine Würich deals with the deportation of Polish Jews from the German Reich in October 1938.
