A rare photograph showing a class of students (boys and girls) at the Moriah Elementary School in Koln, Germany. the 20s

The Moriah Jewish School was established in Koln in the 1900s, as a mixed national religious school. It was continued at the only Jewish gymnasium in the Rhine region in Germany between the two world wars - 'Yavneh', founded on Passover 1919 and held until the deportation of 1100 children from Koln area to their deaths in gunfire near Minsk in July 1942.

We do not know of any other photographs that survived from the school, before us a single photograph, and may be the only one in the world from the Moriah school at the beginning. The photograph is handwritten below: 'Daniel Cohen (the marked boy), at the ultra-Orthodox Jewish school in Koln circa 1929, the Moriah school.'

Size: 17x12 cm. Attached to photographer's hard substrate: 24x20 cm. Very good condition.
