Brave Folk of Herxheim Vote to Retain Adolf Hitler Church Bell

The subject of all the “Sturm und Drang” — this beautiful bronze church bell from 1934.

by Carolyn Yeager

IN SPITE OF THE best efforts of the former church organist, Sigrid Peters, to make a big political issue of the 1934-era bronze church bell hanging in the village’s 1,000 year old Jacobkirche, the good folk of Herxheim am Berg showed their lack of concern about the manufactured issue in a parish council vote on Monday, Feb. 26. The council voted 10 to 3 to keep the bell where it was, where it had been without hurting anyone for the past 84 years.

The decision was greeted with applause from many (read most) community members. Amid the controversy stirred up by the leftists and Sigrid Peters, the bell had been silenced since last September pending a decision by the village of 700 inhabitants, only 30 miles from the university city of Heidelberg. Now it will ring again.

The bell has its own historic significance — bearing the words “All for the Fatherland” — Adolf Hitler, with a swastika of modest size. …

The 1,000 year-old Jacobkirche in peaceful Herxheim that was gifted with the special bell for its tower.

    Kudos to the folks of Herxheim! It may be a small victory, but it’s certainly worth taking note of. It definitely took bravery for those people to vote to keep the bell.
