Süssen Is Now Free of Jews

Geislingen an der Steige played an important role in the financial life of the Jews of Süssen, since it was the financial center for Süssen. During the Holocaust, the Finanzamt (financial authority) confiscated the bank accounts of the Langs, provided the seizure order for the money paid for Louis’ property, and actively participated in auctioning off of the Lang belongings. After 1945, the Finanzamt likewise was responsible for assigning a trustee to the Lang property until the reparations process could be completed. There were only a few marginal Jews living in Geislingen, but the largest business there established a forced labor camp that also included nearly 700 Jewish women sent from Natzweiler concentration camp. Some died during their trials and are buried in the Jewish cemetery in Göppingen.
