Thomas Stoppacher: ?The Jewish Bad Gleichenberg - a forgotten chapter of the health resort history?In the southeast-styrian health resort Bad Gleichenberg, founded in 1834, Jewish visitors represented a large part of the annual guests for decades. This thesis outlines this development, starting with the beginnings of the summer holiday tourism after the juridical equalization of the Jewish population in 1867. Subsequently the forming of a Jewish infrastructure in the place and the steadily growing number of Jewish visitors, originating from different countries and social environments, are introduced. This chapter of Jewish history starts at the turn of the 19th century. It stretches over the final period of the Habsburg Monarchy and the First Republic up to the fatal year 1938, in which the Jewish life in Bad Gleichenberg ended abruptly after the "Anschluss" (annexation) of Austria by the ?German empire?. In spite of the Shoa during the Second World War, some Jewish visitors returned after 1945 to Bad Gleichenberg. Heirs of the expelled Jews owning of immovable property in Bad Gleichenberg, fought for the restitution of the expropriated buildings and property. Today a small Israelite cemetery in the neighbouring village is the only reminding of the glittering cultural past of the Jewish Bad Gleichenberg.
