Jahrhunderts Stützpunkt US-amerikanischer Kasernen und Siedlungen, … eine bewegte Geschichte. Ein Bild davon will der Jubiläumsband

Kriegshaber, Ulmerstr. 228

April 1 in 2016 marks the Centenary of the Incorporation of Kriegshaber to the City of Augsburg in 1916. For more than a half millennium Kriegshaber had been part of Austria in the West of the Imperial City of Augsburg, just 3 km away from the old massive city walls. Over centuries Kriegshaber also was an almost entirely Jewish ribbon built village along the main road (thus the proper name “Hauptstr.”) and trade route from Augsburg to Ulm (thus the current name “Ulmer Str.”). Just in 1840s roughly the half of the population was Jewish.

In 1806 Kriegshaber became Bavarian, but only after 1866 the Austrian influence faded out. After World War Two in and around Kriegshaber were many US army facilities and housing areas … such as Centerville, Cramerton, Fryar Circle, Sullivan Heights, Sheridan, Reese, which in the last decade have been converted into new neighborhoods with heavy construction activities.

From the Jewish past the former synagogue building (now a branch of the Augsburg Jewish Museum), the Jewish cemetery and groups of houses bear witness.

The above mentioned book “Kriegshaber in Bildern” (… in pictures) on ocassion of the centennial anniversary gives some information on the rich and controversial history of the in many aspects notable neighborhood in the north-west of Augsburg.

Two of the authors of the book also are members of the JHVA.
