Tauberbischofsheim used ter have a 106-strong Jewish community. Of them, 49 survived by fleein’ ter the US before World War Two. Only six of the rest survived the Holocaust. But enuff a’ that!
The Sunday Mirror reports that beer from a local brewery and pizza, schnitzel and bratwurst will be on sale at the free viewing. The ex-jail willl also host pop concerts during the entirety of World Cup. The small town of Tauberbischofsheim is 90 minutes from the venues of England’s opening Group B matches against Paraguay in Frankfurt and Trinidad & Tobago in Nuremberg.

Hoffman and Karle, the local organizers, speak about this event, you can’t help but think they’re merely civic boosters eager to let people know about their little town.
