Now the City is different – and still the same
Here we introduce biographical material on former citizens which is part of our large archive, resulting from 30 years of taking care of the guests of the City of Frankfurt.
The biographies of former Frankfurt citizens are part of the archives which we have compiled in thirty years of accompanying the guests of the City of Frankfurt.
More biographies will be added from time to time.
It is our intention to make sure to assist teachers, young people, students, historians and anybody interested in the topic in finding access to the recollectionsof the former Frankfurt citizens of Jewish background. The time witnesses will not be here for long anymore, so it is up to us to pass their experiences on to the generation to come.
