Fashion Houses

Here you will find a tour of fashion houses founded and/or run by Jews. Many of these enterprises were concentrated in the Mitte district. The rapid growth of antisemitism in the Nazi period but also greed and professional jealousy laid the groundwork for the persecution of their owners. Most of the Jewish-owned and/or run fashion houses were “Aryanized”. Their owners fled, were driven out, or deported and murdered. Only a very few survived the Shoah.
