Zwei Synagogen zerstört
VON LUDGER PETERS - zuletzt aktualisiert: 08.11.2008

Über die Zerstörung der zweiten Synagoge auf Nettetaler Stadtgebiet, in Breyell, ist kaum etwas bekannt. Sie stand an der heutigen Biether Straße etwa dort, wo früher die Waschhalle der Tankstelle AJL errichtet wurde. Der zynische Umgang der Machthaber mit den Juden kann den Akten entnommen werden. Für die Beseitigung der Trümmer wurde die jüdische Gemeinde herangezogen. Grundstückseigentümer Jakob Klaber, der die ihm auferlegten Kosten nicht begleichen konnte, „trat“ die Fläche am 20. März 1940 an die Gemeinde Breyell ab.

Translation (by Jack Klaber):
About the destruction of the second synagogue in the Nettetal town district, in Breyell, little is known. The synagogue was built on the Biether street, approximately where today the former car wash section was located next to the "AJL" gas station. The cynical use of the rulers to the Jews can be found in the files. For removal of debris, the Jewish community was made responsible. Property owner Jacob Klaber, who could not pay the costs imposed on him, "abandoned" the area on 20 March 1940 in favor of the city of Breyell.

Comment by Jack Klaber:
The article is incorrect by stating that Jacob handed over his property in 1940 to the city of Breyell.
Jacob died already in 1931 by natural causes and it was his son Fritz Klaber who was the caretaker of the property (his 3 brothers managed to escape to Holland and USA) when the Nazi authorities confiscated it.
As Fritz was already in the Netherlands in 1940, it was his wife Ilse and his mother Bernhardine who had to face the Nazi authorities.

At least in the case of the December 11, 1941 transport from Düsseldorf, the train was composed of third class passenger cars for the Jews and a second class passenger car for the guards. Apparently efforts were made to keep the train heated. Source:

German Federal Archive: erroneously mentions Dortmund as the place of transport for Margarethe Kaufmann, geb. Kahn.
In the Riga Memory Book under the name-lists of killed people, Margarethe Kaufmann, geb. Kahn is listed as being on the Duesseldorf Transport.
This seems to be more acceptable, as her last registered address was with her daughter and grandson so they were deported together.

Gunter Demnig laid the Stolperstones in a ceremony that was witnessed by about 50 people: the mayor of Nettetal-Breyell, members of the town council, the church organizations who together with the Lienen family (Vera, the initiator of this project and her brother) sponsored the stones.
