9. November 2017: Gedenken in Augsburger Synagoge


AM heutigen Abend wurde in der Augsburger Synagoge der sog. “Reichskristallnacht” (die von fragwürdigen Deppen auch “Reichspogromnacht” genannt wird, ohne zu verstehen, dass Russ. погром in etwa “Unwetter” bedeutet, was historisch auch nicht so ganz dem gedachten Sachverhalt entspricht) … gedacht in rednerischer Anwesenheit des früheren, nun gleichfalls historischen Bundespräsidenten Joachim Gauck.
 
But as my grandmother told so often: Be it as it may …


בית הכנסת אוגסבורג – חצי אתר בנייה, חצי בית תפילה … או מוזאון


The German term “Gauck” historically refers to and equals English “gag”what can be understood as sort of a “joke” (Latin: iocus) or “joy” … but maybe also in the meaning of “gag order”. Depends on your criteria. You may see the very same building as a prayer hall (unnoticed without any prayer) as a construction site, as a museum, as a concert hall … as a “younameit”. As local Swabian put it somewhat Austrian: “Is ayh woorsht…”
