The Battle for the 'Jerusalem Border Stone': Media, Supporters, and Breakthroughs


Mayoral Candidate Advocates for the Preservation of the Memorial Stone  (February 2014)

DGB-Bensheim Supports the Preservation of the Memorial Stone  (March 27, 2014)

Hessian Television (HR) reports on the Bergstraße District Authority's order to dismantle the 'Jerusalem Border Stone,' benches, and information boards at the Friedensmal. Behind the dispute lies more than just the argument over a 1.3 square meter allegedly illegally built memorial stone made of Odenwald quartz on our property. The 'Jerusalem Border Stone' has, however, become a 'stumbling block' and a symbol due to the demolition order.

Karl Netzer from Heppenheim, a friend of Professor Jacobeit, who was once the director of the Ravensbrück Memorial and who is also friends with Martin Buber's granddaughter, organized a lecture for me at the Martin Buber House. This lecture was the breakthrough in our fight for the monument to remain:

When it was all over, an old, well-known Bensheim core citizen patted me on the back and said:  Well done.  * * *
