Opening in September 2020

Taking into account that Angenrod in the 19th century had more than 40% Jewish inhabitants, the SpeierHaus as the last house in Jewish ownership until 2016 and the place where the last Angenrod Jews were isolated and deported in 1942, is of utmost significance.

The opening of the exhibition in September 2020 aimed to visualize the living and working together of Jews and Christians.

Speierhaus as a Place of Learning and Experiencing

With pictograms on the exhibits and panels of the 15 platforms films and information can be viewed on pads which show Jews and Christians of the Vogelsberg area working together, next to each other or even against each other.

In a learning room on the upper floor there are six tables and 28 grey and blue stools in a relation of 40 to 60% – the proportion of Jewish as compared to Christian population in the 19th century.
