Biographical / Historical

Ulm is located in Wuerttemberg, Germany; it is a significant road and rail city. In the 19th century, the city of Ulm was established into a robust Jewish community. The most famous person born in Ulm was Albert Einstein. During the Nazi period, the Jewish population declined due to antisemitism and the boycott of Jewish business establishments. In 1936, Jewish students were no longer able to attend public schools. On November 10, 1938, the night of Kristallnacht, the synagogue built-in 1873, was burned down. Later, the Jewish community was deported from Ulm to concentration camps. The city of Ulm was severely damaged by subsequent raids from March 1, 1945, to April 19, 1945, by British and American aircraft. Two large truck factories were the primary targets. By the end of the Second World War, eighty-one percent of the city center was destroyed.
