“On November 9, 2015, Themar commemorated its former Jewish fellow citizens. The action artist Gunter Deming continued to lay Stolpersteine to remember the crimes against the Jewish population. Present from Canada was Dr. Sharon Meen, who has been studying the fates of Themar’s former Jewish population for years. Also Dr. Blanca Schorcht came from Canada. She is the granddaughter of Themar former mayor Fritz Schorcht.”
