Jewish Eberswalde

The Jewish history of Eberswalde is extremely rich and varied: There was a flourishing Jewish community with synagogues, schools and cemeteries. The Jewish people of Eberswalde were respected citizens, mostly merchants - until the Novemberpogrom of 1938. Many Jews from Eberswalde perished in concentration camps, died on death marches or by suicide, only a few managed to escape and survive.

We owe the fact that Eberswalde's Jewish history has not been completely lost - in addition to the culture of remembrance actively promoted by the city of Eberswalde - to the commitment of private initiatives and non-profit associations.
