Detailed description

In the middle of the historic city centre lies the historic Judengasse, where several Jewish residents of Hachenburg lived in the early modern period. Before the synagogue was built on Alexanderring in 1896/97, the services of the Jewish community were held in private houses, including Judengasse. The renaming of "Judengasse" to "Alte Poststraße" in 1933 during the National Socialist era was reversed in 1997 and the street was given back its historical name.

The Jewish victims of the National Socialist terror are commemorated by the memorial stone located at the corner of the reading garden.
