of the Jews in Halberstadt
The earliest document that refers to the existence of Jews in Halberstadt is a letter of protection issued in 1261 by Bishop Volrad of Kranichfeld in conjunction with the city council and the citizens.
The inventory of the almost completely preserved archive of the Jewish community of Halberstadt begins with July 1641.
The tradition becomes considerably denser after the Thirty Years’ War, when the bishopric of Halberstadt lost its independence with the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 and became part of Brandenburg-Prussia.
