"Judensau (German for "Jews' sow" or "Jewish sow")] is a derogatory and dehumanizing image of Jews in obscene contact with a large sow (female pig), which in Judaism is an unclean animal, that appeared during the 13th century in Germany and some other European countries; its popularity lasted for over 600 years" (Wiki). Still "in situ" within a WHS. Those in Wittenberg and Regensburg have nearby "explanatory" plaques which have been criticised for not being "explanatory" and "critical" enough.
The connection belongs to History connections.
Do you know of another WHS we could connect to Judensau?
A connection should:
- Not be "self evident"
- Link at least 3 different sites
- Not duplicate or merely subdivide the "Category" assignment already identified on this site.
- Add some knowledge or insight (whether significant or trivial!) about WHS for the users of this site
- Be explained, with reference to a source
