Only one of the town's Jews survived the Holocaust: Alexander Lebenstein, after whom a school is named.In March 2015, the town received international attention when 16 students and two teachers from the Joseph-König-Gymnasium in Haltern, were killed in the Germanwings Flight 9525 crash in the French Alps.
