Born in Schlochau (West Prussia) in 1876, Isidor Dobrin founded his first bakery shop at Jerusalemer Straße 16 in 1908. Soon afterwards, he opened a second shop at Spandauer Brücke 7. Others would follow. Dobrin lived with his wife Rosalie and daughter Mirjam in the Grunewald district, at Königsallee 34/34a. Today, a “Stolperstein” (or memorial cobble-stone) commemorates the address’s former residents.
Already in 1930, a shop belonging to the Isidor Dobrin Company on Leipziger Straße was attacked by stormtroopers.
When the shop at Spandauer Brücke was vandalized by antisemites in June of 1938, it was still in the hands of its founder.
In April of 1939, Mirjam Dobrin was able to flee to England on a children’s transport.
Her parents were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp on 12 January 1943. Both were murdered there. The Isidor Dobrin Bakery was forcibly confiscated in 1944.
