German Village Names Street After Holocaust Victim

FSWC Reports:


Four cousins from Israel traveled to a small German town to learn about their heritage. They returned several months later to attend a poignant commemoration of their grandfather.

The town of Hargesheim, population 3,000, is about an hour's drive from Frankfurt. The Rauner family's roots there go back about 120 years, when Michael Rauner settled in town after fighting against the French in the German army. He was buried in the Jewish cemetery that is still preserved in the village.
