Remembering Paul Ben Chaim in Augsburg

Memorial Plate for Paul Ben Chaim in Augsburg

Although (due to the inscription) one might think that Paul actually was playing under the archway, he from 1924 to 1931 of course worked in the neighboring city theater, which some years later was significantly changed in structure according to plans of Adolf Hitler. For some reason the memorial inscription for Paul Ben Chaim was not placed at the theater proper. At the passage where the plate hangs for some decades, it of course is hardly noticed by anybody. Since 2010 there is a “Paul Ben Haim Weg” in Augsburg-Oberhausen, a walk along the western shore of river Wertach, where there are no houses and therefore no postal address.

Read here on the reasoning and request for the naming (German) of the Paul Ben Chaim Weg in late 2009.

Nach langen Bauarbeiten ist er nun wieder einsehbar, bald vielleicht auch wieder begehbar, der Augsburger Judenberg, die letzte namentliche Erinnerung an die mittelalterlichen Juden der Reichstadt.
