The theater critic and essayist Alfred Kerr (1867–1948) lived here with his family until their emigration. Known for his ironic commentaries and travel accounts, Kerr fled Nazi Germany with his relatives on 15 February 1933. His books were banned and burned. As a Jew, he had his citizenship revoked by the German authorities. After the war, Kerr visited Germany numerous times. However, he chose not to return. His daughter Judith authored the famous children’s book “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit”
