Michael and GailMichael Hayse, associate professor of History, and Gail Rosenthal, director of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center, traveled with two children of Holocaust survivors, who visited their parents’ hometowns in Germany in July. Lennard and Marc Hammerschlag brought a Torah from the Lauenau synagogue, which Adolf Hammerschlag took with him into emigration almost 80 years ago.

In Frankfurt, the group visited the addresses where the Hammerschlags’ maternal grandparents, Ludwig and Rosie Moritz, lived with their daughter, Wally (born 1929). They also visited the memorial to Frankfurt Jews murdered in the Holocaust, which stands on the site of the synagogue to which the family belonged. It was destroyed by arson on Kristallnacht in November 1938.

In Lauenau, they were the invited guests of the town. The Hammerschlags’ ancestors were the first Jewish family to settle in the village, probably in the late 1700s. The prayer house for the small Jewish community of the town was in a room of their home, which was also the address of Adolf Hammerschlag’s textile business.

A highlight of the visit was the temporary return of the Torah scroll from the Lauenau synagogue. It was passed down to Hammerschlag’s children. In Lauenau, Pharmacist Thomas Berger has been instrumental in remembering the Jewish community that was destroyed and scattered by the Nazis.
