12. Kitchen


The kitchen was used by the cantors’ wives, Mathilde Weinberg and Clara Eisemann, to prepare kosher food. The old sink and the stove are preserved. On the right door jamb of the entrance to the kitchen, the place where a mezuzah was installed was uncovered. Similar traces can also be found at the entrances to the “family room” and the “Kahlstub.”

When the building was used by the garrison, many soldiers were fed here. The door that closes the small corridor to the kitchen has a hatch for food distribution. The writing on the door to the toilet on the upper floor, “LATRINE,” can be attributed to this time.
