Until their deportation to the south in 1940, Hochfelden had a significant Jewish community.
In 1941, more than 200 young people celebrated Bastille Day with a street procession. The occupying forces retaliated, placing the village under a state of siege. The Mayor and Gendarmes were replaced and 106 people, including 23 women, were interned at Schirmeck. The information was reported to London where the events were reported by the BBC.
Meteor beer is brewed and sold in Hochfelden.
