Jewish history

Jewish life - once and today

Ehemaliger Schulhof

After the banishment of the Jews from the imperial cities in the late medieval period, Fürth became the religious centre of Jewish life in southern Germany. Power-political disputes favoured the legal situation of the Jews in Fürth. In the 18th century there were several synagogues, prayer rooms, religious learning centres and a hospital. Fürth was one of the European centres of Hebrew book printing.
