The background was impossible to find out any information about. Located near a major Swiss city, the Jewish school was closed in 2015 with massive debts. Apparently the Jewish community still meets nearby and appears active.
Up early one Saturday morning, we headed off for a relatively short drive to the location. Access was a cinch, and surprisingly, there was still power to the building, which is a welcome change to wandering about by torchlight. Also absent was graffiti and the usual Swastikas that would usually be sprayed all over the place anywhere else in the world.
