The Jewish Humberg family lived in the house at No. 13 Hohe Strasse in Dingden until 1941. They ran a butchery and a retail trader’s. The parents, Rosalia and Abraham, and their seven children were well-regarded members of the village community. But, just as for millions of Jews, the Humberg family became victims of the National Socialists’ systematic discrimination, persecution and murder. Four brothers and sisters were murdered; three were able to emigrate to Canada with their families. The traces of this German family would have been erased by these tragic events if the members of the Heimatverein Dingden e.V. had not taken on the history of the house and its previous occupants.
Since June 2012, The “Humberg House Historical Site, Dingden” has invited the public to discover this simple and, at the same time, moving story. The Humberg House is not a museum, but a place of remembrance, reflection and learning, where the past, the present and the future appear. An interactive media guide and guided tours and materials for school classes facilitate individual access.
The Humberg House Historical Site, Dingden, continues to develop. Thanks to its extensive material, this Internet site will keep you up to date and we heartily invite you to visit the Humberg House Historical Site, Dingden.
