Erika Rust came to Mellrichstadt in 1977. When she had got to know that once a large Jewish community had been there, she began to research their history. In the course of her research she found some members of the Jewish community who had emigrated. She still has friendly contacts with them. In publications, oral presentations and guided tours she reminds of the former Jewish citizens of Mellrichstadt.
