Jewish Memorial Großmarkthalle

24 March 2017 | 4:30 pm | English

From October 1941 to the end of World War II, the Gestapo used the former Wholesale Market Hall as an assembly point for Jewish women, men and children from Frankfurt and surrounding regions who were robbed and humiliated before more than 10,000 of them were eventually deported to ghettos, concentration camps, and extermination camps. On the same grounds, the daily business of the market hall continued, while the ghastly events could not have gone unnoticed among local workers. The last deportation from Frankfurt took place on March 15, 1945. Overall there were 179 known survivors. The Memorial at the Frankfurt Wholesale Market Hall attests to this crime and to the significance of the site for the city’s history.

We meet at 4:30 pm at Sonnemannstraße 20, at the guest entrance of the Jewish Memorial Großmarkthalle
