Einige Eindrücke, wie es sich in den alten Häusern der Huerbener Juden im 19. Jahrhundert leben ließ vermittelt das Mittelschwaebische Heimatmuseum in Krumbach, das seit 1950 in einem ehemaligen jüdsiche  Bürgerhaus aus dem 18. Jahrhundert untergebracht ist. Besonderes sehenswert sind dabei vorallem die Räume “zur bäuerlichen und bürgerlichen Wohnkultur” da diese am ehesten geeignet sind, uns heutigen Menschen eine Vorstellung über eine um 200 Jahre zurückliegende Zeit zu vermitteln.

The Museum of Middle-Swabian Local History (Mittelschwaebisches Heimat Museum)  in Krumbach placed in a former Huerben Jewish town house shows quite interesting exhibitions what convey some impression what housing and livelihood were like in early 19th century rural Bavarian Swabia.

    The music box pictured in the article is an Ehrlich ARISTON reed organ, probably manufactured in Leipzig.

    Is really all furniture displayed in the exhibition Jewish ..?

    • yehuda says:

      Jewish in the meaning of manufactured by at least one Jew? or once owned by at least one Jew? I don’t know. My guess, is that Jews and Gentiles in those days had a quite similar living and possibly there were no furniture stores with separated department for Gentile or Jewish furniture whatsoever … but of course I may be wrong about it.
