Bible belonging to couple killed in Holocaust returned to family
A bible belonging to a couple who were killed in the Holocaust was found in Germany in 1990 and was returned to their family earlier this month 30 years after it was found, The Washington Post has reported.
It all started in 1990 when a father and son were renovating their new house in Oberdorf, Bopfingen, Germany. As they worked on their home, they discovered a chest hidden behind a double wall in the attic and inside the chest they found a gilded Jewish bible.
The bible weighed about 10 kilos and was some 75 centimeters long and eight centimeters high. Embossed on the front were the words “Die Heilige Schrift der Israeliten” - The Holy Scripture of the Israelites. Inside were illustrations by Gustave Doré, a leading book illustrator of the late-19th century.
