Group excursion in June 2019

Universität Ulm

On June 3rd 2019, the Electron Microscopy Group of Materials Science went on an excursion to the synagogue of Ulm, and learned about Albert Einstein during a guided city tour.

In the morning of a beautiful and sunny day, we started our excursion at the synagogue of Ulm. We visited the new synagogue which was inaugurated in 2012, and learned from rabbi Yehuda Pushkin about Ulm's jewish community.  During a very nice conversation, he answered all our questions about Judaism, and the history of Judaism in Ulm.

After our lunch in the Ratskeller restaurant, we continued the excursion with an Einstein themed city tour by "Karl Keinstein". The tour went to different places in the city, all of which had a relation to Albert Einstein. In the late afternoon, the tour ended with a musical performance by Keinstein in the Schwörhaus, right next to the synagogue where our excursion started.
