Abstract:

Traces the history of the Jewish community of Weiden (Oberpfalz) from the medieval period through the first half of the 20th century. Mentions the establishment of the Antisemitischer Volksverein Weiden in 1893. Reports, also, on increased antisemitic agitation after World War I. Pp. 170-346 discuss the Nazi period, including anti-Jewish measures before 1938, the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, the exclusion of Jews from the economy, and Aryanization of Jewish property. Traces structural changes in the Jewish community after 1938, and waves of emigration. There were 168 Jews living in Weiden in 1933, and 16 in October 1939. In April 1942, nine Jews were deported to Trawniki; later, the other three were deported to Theresienstadt. Altogether, 18 Jews from Weiden perished in the Holocaust.
