About the place  

Overview of Chapters

Jerusalem on the Rhein - From the Blossom of Shalom in the middle of the Friedensmal (monument) you can look into the Rhine Plain to the city of Worms (linear distance: 22 km). Here in the neighboring cities Speyer, Worms and Mainz (SchUM cities) the Ashkenazi Jewish culture developed in the High Middle Ages.

Local past - Here you find some information about the Greek forced laborers and the inmates of a concentration camp. They had to work in an armaments factory in Bensheim-Hochstädten, that belonged to the sattelite camp Bensheim-Auerbach.

A bridge to Israel - This vision refers to the three places Bensheim, Fulda and Jerusalem. It thus shows an international perspective of the Jerusalem Friedensmal and serves as a bridge from the spiritual to the world.

Landscapes - Images of a hike from Bensheim to the Jerusalem Friedensmal and back as a slideshow with 143 photos.
