Jewish Life in Leipzig

Jewish Life in Leipzig

About 80 years ago the Jewish religious community of Leipzig totaled nearly 13,000 members, the sixth largest in all of Germany. The Jewish citizens actively took part in trade and business and hence contributed to the growth of the city and enriched its social and cultural life.But starting 1933, and especially after the “Night of Broken Glass“(9th/10th of November in 1938), a massive curtailment of Jewish rights and appropriation of property began.

We would like to recall that once thriving Jewish community and note that our current Jewish community has grown back to more than 1300 members who are once again contributing to Leipzig’s daily business and cultural life.
