Description

A memorial path in eight stages in Luxembourg City commemorates the persecution and deportation of Luxembourg's Jews under the National Socialist occupation. The path is designed by MemoShoah Luxembourg asbl.

The tour starts at the central train station from where Jews were deported. The path then leads to the Arbed building, then the seat of the Gauleiter, who issued anti-Jewish laws and regulations.

It continues to the site of the former Jewish school (72 bd de la Pétrusse), from where the children were expelled, and then to Villa Pauly, Gestapo headquarters, from where the deportations were organised.

The memorial route continues to the site of the second state synagogue (rue Notre-Dame), which was closed in May 1941, desecrated by the Nazis in 1943 and demolished.

Continuing along the route, one pauses at 13 rue du Marché aux Herbes, home of the shop of Albert Nussbaum, a clothing manufacturer who organised the emigration of Jews, saving some 1,000 people from the Holocaust.

The route also touches on the site of the first synagogue, which stood at number 6 rue de la Congrégation until 1891.

It ends at the Kaddish Monument (Boulevard Roosevelt), which commemorates the persecution, deportation and murder of more than 1,300 local Jews and those who fled to Luxembourg during the National Socialist dictatorship.
