Moses in Ziemetshausen

Christ stopped at Eboli” was the somewhat inaccurated English translation of Carlo Levi’s famous book “Cristo si è fermato a Eboli“, because the actual meaning is, he wasn’t inside Eboli. Be it as it may: Moses (משה רבנו) however was seen these days in Ziemetshausen, a small townlet, just 5 km away from Thannhausen (3o km from Augsburg), where in 17th century was a small Jewish community with a amount of Jewish book printing … There is no notice on a Jewish community of Ziemetshausen, but the vicinity to a number of places with Jewish settlements make it likely that Jews were there too.
