DENK MAL AM ORT 2018

 

 

For a list of the events commemorating individuals and families persecuted in Berlin during the Nazi era click on DMAO 2018.

We pay tribute to them at original sites in Berlin, a former apartment, a courtyard, a garden, a cellar, a stairwell, in front of a residential building, a workplace, a university or where they hid from their persecutors, for example on the island of Reiswerder.

 

We are delighted that Jack M. Weil, the son of Ruth Reich, who was the sole survivor of her family, came to Berlin to take part in DENK MAL AM ORT.

 

We also thank Merilyn Moos, a granddaughter of the Jacoby family,  for coming from London. 

 

On 5 and 6 May, Merilyn Moos and Jack M. Weil were present at Gervinusstraße 20a, the former home of both their families.

We feel grateful to Ludwig Joel Katzenellenbogen, who grew up in Berlin-Schöneberg. His parents ran a hardware shop in Goltzstraße 37. The Katzenellenbogen family fled the country in 1939. Joel Ludwig Katzenellenbogen, who celebrated last autumn his 91st birthday in Netanya, joined us for commemorating his family in Rosenheimer Straße 40 in May. He has been accompanied by his daughter Elsa Ety Katzenellenbogen Cohen, his youngest grandson Dan Cohen and his son-in-law Shlomi Cohen.
