Stories of persecution during National Socialism and the HSV | Tour
The history of the Hamburger Sport-Verein (HSV) is closely linked to Hamburg's Grindel district, the city’s historically Jewish district, and its surroundings. During the tour, biographies of persecuted HSV members will be told and their fates will be used to explore topics such as persecution, resistance, flight, deportation, and murder during National Socialism. In addition to Stolperstein (stumbling stones), there are also memorial plaques and places named after the persecuted that help us remember these stories. Therefore, the ongoing struggle for remembrance is also an important part of the tour.
The tour is organised in cooperation with the Netzwerk Erinnerungsarbeit and a part of www.fussballunderinnerung.de - a EURO24 project.
Guides: Netzwerk Erinnerungsarbeit (an association of people from HSV)
The tour will be held in English and is free of charge.

A journey through the history of Jewish football in Hamburg | Evening Event
In the first decades of German football history, many Jewish men were part of football culture. Just a few weeks after the National Socialists came to power in 1933, many German gymnastics and sports clubs began to voluntarily exclude their Jewish members. Lorenz Peiffer’s lecture looks for Jewish traces in Hamburg’s football history.
