* Rare Jewish Judaica Jews title
* Pre Nazi Germany era
An uncommon German language Jewish newspaper from Karlsruhe, the title translating to "Karlsruhe Jewish Weekly".
Jews began to settle in this town as early as 1715, attracted to the numerous privileges granted to settlers without discrimination as to creed. In the early 1930's some 3300 Jews lived in Karlsruhe owning buildings & other property including two synagogues. During the early years of the Nazi regime the community continued to function, although prepared for emigration. In 1938 all male Polish Jews living in Karlsruhe were deported to Poland & synagogues were destroyed on Kristallnacht. Many of the men were arrested & sent to Dachau concentration camp. In 1945 there were only 18 Jews in Karlsruhe. More than 1000 of them had been killed between 1933 and 1945.
An eight page newspaper in very nice, clean condition with the Star of David in the masthead.
