This is all that is left of a once thriving community. The mikvah was built around 1120 and is the oldest north of the alps. Come and quietly ponder

It was well worth the hour to see this important part of regional religious history. There was much more here than the invasion and destruction by Hitler's armed forces in the 1930-1940s... as it reflected the religious persecution throughout Europe over many years prior.
