Speaker: Anna Längström

Sunday, 21 April 2024, 3.00 pm, Migwan, Herrengrabenweg 50, Basel

The last centuries of Jewish history in the three-country region were characterized by many ups and downs and political challenges up until the Second World War. The small town of Sulzburg in southern Baden plays a special role, as a center of Jewish life grew here over the centuries, which was not to be found anywhere else and has often flourished despite the politically difficult landscape. Even back then there were connections to Switzerland and the Alsace. In this lecture we will explore the special features of this otherwise very tranquil place, as well as the special conditions of entry to Basel during the National Socialist era.Anne Längström was born in Basel in 1989 and grew up mostly in Germany.
