Süssen Is Now Free of Jews

A request for a birth certificate from Ruth Lang Lemberger, former resident of Süssen, set the process in motion that ended in a reconciliation between members of the Lang family (though not Ruth) and the municipality of Süssen. In 1989 Hugo and Inge Lang with family accepted an invitation from the mayor of Süssen to visit their former hometown. The visit was a success, and the agenda shows evidence of speeches and toasting between the parties. Hugo asked the town to erect a proper memorial for his loved ones. The municipality complied, and he and his wife returned for the dedication of the Holocaust memorial two years later, in 1991.
