“Den Worten Taten folgen lassen”


Am Sonntag 26. April konnten wir wieder in Zusammenarbeit mit der Jungen Augsburg Stadtmitte eine Gruppe von etwa 40 Besuchern zu einer Führung über den Jüdischen Friedhof Kriegshaber begrüßen. Im Anschluss daran folgten den Worten konkrete Taten und so halfen uns die jüngeren Besucher bei der praktischen Arbeit am Friedhof und sammelten auf den Gelände verstreuten Müll aus der Nachbarschaft und beseitigten Wildwuchs der den Bestand zahlreicher alter Grabsteine akut gefährdet.

Ein herzlicher Dank unsererseits an die JU Augsburg und an Lena Jakat für den netten bericht in der heutigen Ausgabe der “Augsburger Allgemeine” (AZ vor Ort):

On Sunday  April 26, we once again had a group of some 40 visitors on a guided tour at the Jewish cemetery of Kriegshaber with lots of questions, among them Mrs. Seeger a descendent from the Kriegshaber Maendle family of Jacksonville, Alabama, who was very upset by the “willful neglect “ of the Cemetery.

So “walk it like you talk it”, as the saying goes and that once more was our motto together with the members of the Junge Union (the youth organization of the Bavarian political party CSU) Stadtmitte (local branch of Augsburg’s city center) who were eager to suit the action to the word, means to pick up scattered garbage from the neighborhood and to eradicate rank growth which after all is still an acute danger to many of the centuries old grave markers at the Jewish cemetery.  

Our heartfelt thanks to the dedicated members of the JU Augsburg Stadtmitte and to Mrs. Lena Jakat for the nice report in today’s edition of the local “Augsburger Allgemeine” newspaper.
