A few days ago I was on the road for business reasons and visited the tiny little village of Braunsbach in Baden-Wurttemberg/Germany, surrounded by mountains in the Kocher-valley, because the local museum plans to open a very special hungarian exhibition next year. Braunsbach has a small castle, a friendly inn (Gasthof zum Löwen) with very friendly people, sweet old houses, but also a very rich jewish past of nearly 350 years starting from the 1600´s. At those times when there was no other place to settle for jews in the whole Baden-Württemberg area, Braunsbach opened its doors for the foreigners and they lived here peacefully together until 1942. Today we can still follow the traces of jewish life here and visit the "Rabbinatsmuseum" close to the "Marktplatz". The unique and large old historical jewish cemetery with 398 gravestones is located at a lonely hillside with a breathtaking view to the village, the Kocher-valley and the largest motorway-viaduct of Germany, the "Kochertalbrücke". It is more than worth to visit the place! To read more: www.rabbinatsmuseum-braunsbach.de/ and www.alemannia-judaica.de/braunsbach_friedhof.htm
