The Jews of Stühlingen

The Jewish communities of Swabia did not live in isolation. Despite long distances, difficult communication paths, and arduous travel, close exchanges and familial ties existed with other Jewish communities, not only in Germany, but even in other European regions. Lazarus Gogenheimb, the earliest ancestor of the large Hürben Guggenheimer clan arrived 1728 from Stühlingen in Baden.

A separate website (Stuehlingen.online) now lets you explore the geography, history, life and details of individual named members of that vanished community. Maybe, your ancestor is among them?
