The Jewish cemetery in Vöhl was also leveled in 1941. The tombstones were stored on the outskirts and the citizens of Vöhl and the neighboring towns could get the stones and use them for private construction work. At the end of the war only 46 tombstones were left, which were brought back to the cemetery and set up.
I identified 160 people buried there between 1831 and 1940. An artist has now designed a plaque that names all 160 names. And we found sponsors who finance the table. The plaque will be erected at the beginning of October and inaugurated on October 19th.
We are very happy that we can realize this project.
In the photo you can see the draft of the memorial plaque.
