Jews in Ellingen 1540 - 1938         
A documentation of the Friends of the Baroque Town of Ellingen, Inc.      






















The "Friends of the Baroque Town of Ellingen, Inc. as caretakers of the town archive present a documentation of the life and fate of Ellingen`s Jews based on sources from this archive.

We believe that we are able to offer in a unique way, a concise though comprehensive, depiction of the complexities of Jewish life throughout a period of almost four centuries.

Ellingen represents a particular microcosm. Jewish rural life or that in larger towns has often been described. From early on Ellingen, with it`s only ca. 1500 citizens neither a village nor a town, but a residence of nobility, resulting in a unique mixture of aristocratic, municipal, and personal records.
