Abstract:

Traces the history of Jews in the Sauerland (Westphalia) from the early 19th century, including residence and other restrictions. The region, and especially the town Olpe (11 Jews in a total population of 6,252 in 1925) was overwhelmingly Catholic and resistant to Nazism; the three Jewish families (Emanuel and two Lenneberg brothers) enjoyed popularity and esteem. During the 1 April 1933 boycott, citizens made a point of buying in the Lennebergs' store despite the SA posts outside. The regional newspaper condemned the boycott. Later, pressure on public employees and welfare recipients forced them to avoid the Jewish businesses. In early 1938, the families sold their businesses to Aryans. During the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, the Jews' apartments were destroyed and the men sent to Sachsenhausen. With great difficulty, the families succeeded in emigrating in 1939 and 1940.
