Situated directly by the city wall and not far from Judengasse with the synagogue and the Jewish Museum, the Herta Mansbacher recreation area offers not only opportunities to take a walk and sit but also has playground apparatus for children and a “Bolzplatz” (an enclosed playground area suitable for football). There is a model of the old city fortifications and plenty of room for laughing, jumping and running around, and having fun.
The recreation area is named after the German-Jewish teacher Herta Mansbacher (1885-1942).
Herta Mansbacher was dismissed from her post as a teacher in a state school following the seizure of power by the Nazis in 1933. She then became actively involved in helping Jewish pupils. Herta Mansbacher was deported by the Nazis in 1942 and murdered.
