Abstract:

Vol. 1 surveys the history of Jewish life in the region of Biedenkopf, Germany, and relates the fate of the Jews in the Nazi period in four villages: Gladenbach, Breidenbach, Elmshausen-Buchenau, and Niederweidbach. In 1933 there was a sizeable Jewish community in Gladenbach, with 109 residents. In Breidenbach there were 12 Jews, in Buchenau nine, in Elmshausen two, and in Niederweidbach 24. Of these, 75 Jews emigrated. 54 were deported from this region to concentration camps; only one survived. The fate of 13 residents is unknown. Pp. 88-138 include alphabetical lists of the Jewish residents of the region. Vol. 2, published in 1999, presents the history of several families of the region and relates their fate.
