Dorsten contacts and visits 2001-2007

  Visit of Marion Rosenbluth from Chicago in 2001 (with Johanna Eichmann, former director of the Jewish Museum)
In 2003 members of the Eisendrath family donated money to help the work of the Jewish Museum of Westphalia in Dorsten. The donation has been applied for restoring the eldest stones of the Jewish Cemetery”Judenbusch” in Dorsten.
Christie Lynn Eisendrath was working in Poland for a year and visited
Dorsten’s “Old Town” and the Jewish Cemetery in April 2007

Rebekah Eisendrath from Vista/California came to Dorsten in July 2007 with her
friend Janelle and inspected the “Wiesenstrasse”, the Jewish Museum and other places of interest.

“My trip to Dorsten was one of the most amazing things I have experienced. I had the opportunity to see where my family first originated, walk the streets of where the first Eisendrath's lived, and see the burial site of my oldest ancestors. I had never been to a place with so much history, especially history that related to me directly. Visiting the museum in Dorsten taught me a lot not only about my family specifically, but about Jewish history and culture in general. It was a truly unforgettable experience, one that I am
very fortunate to have had.”


Robert and Diane Eisendrath from Belmont were the “special guests” of the Jewish Museum’s jubilee party in October 2007 (with members of the museum’s board during the party)
