Upon the death of Mrs. Henriette (wife of Baruch Pfifferling (*.04.06.1848) in Datterode (01.04.1945). An article in the newspaper “Der Israelit” from 15, April 1915;

Datterode, 11. April (1915). On one of the intermediate days of Passover festival (at the beginning of April 1915), Mrs. Baruch Pfifferling, the oldest woman in our community, died suddenly and unexpectedly after a short illness. The departed was a valiant woman in the finest meaning of the word, and produced within her family group persons of wisdom and piety in the spirit of our Torah. The funeral, in which not only all members of the town’s Jewish community and those of neighboring communities, but also non-Jewish residents participated, provided eloquent testimony of the love that the deceased had enjoyed from those who knew her. At the bier, Teacher Pfifferling of Aurich, currently recovering from wounds in Hildesheim, a son of the deceased, spoke emotional words of farewell on behalf of the family. Let her soul be entered into the Book of Life.

Under the pretext of having a shower before moving into a new building and to control the vermin, the patients had to take off their clothes, were examined by doctors on the surface and provided with a number stamped on the skin. When the number of persons was completed in the chamber called “bathing room” with showers on the ceiling, the door was closed and the gas opened. After 15-20 minutes, and a glance through the peephole, that all the people were no longer alive, the bodies were posed by SS-men, not, without removing the gold teeth of those victims, who could be identified because of the previously “medical examination” and numbering. The bodies were then spent the night in a former post office car to the ovens in a fenced building about five miles outside the city and burned.

In 1903 Salomo Pfifferling passed the teacher examinations and worked in Leipzig, Lübeck and Aurich. His wife Selma b. Rehbock, was born on 27.5.1881 in Eisenach. The married couple had a daughter: Margot, who was born in Aurich on 5.8.1913. Salomo Pfifferling took part in the First World War and returned in 1918 as a war-hurt. From November 1919 he was a teacher at the one-class Jewish school in Marburg. He was a Kantor in worship and occasionally represented the rabbi. Solomon Pfifferling and his family, who lived in Heusingerstrasse 1 since March 1919, was very faithful. In 1933, the Jewish school, which had never owned its own school building, was closed and the teaching took place in the synagogue since August 1934. In the Reichspogromnacht on the 9th of November, 1938, however, it was burnt down by the SA brigades.
On November 11, 1938, Solomon Pfifferling was arrested "for his personal safety" - as the municipal administration reported to the county council - and was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. A few months later, he was released again. Immediately afterwards, with all the means at his disposal, he attempted to reopen the Jewish school, which he succeeded in time. The final closure of the school took place on October 10, 1940. On 8 December 1941, the Pfifferling couple were deported to the ghetto of Riga and murdered in Auschwitz concentration camp. The daughter Margot had already emigrated to France in 1933, because she saw no career and life perspective in Germany and she survived the Holocaust.
