Denk Mal Am Ort


The Villa 102: A Building as Witness

As part of the city-wide event Denk Mal Am Ort, KfW Stiftung will open the doors of the historic Villa 102.

Dr. phil. Albert Sondheimer moved into the villa at Bockenheimer Landstrasse 102 in 1918 with his wife Margarete and their four daughters Auguste, Ellen, Erna and Anna. A visit to the villa provides insights into the architectural monument from 1912 and tells the story of the Sondheimer family, which had to leave Germany in 1932. The eventful history of Villa 102, spanning more than a hundred years, bears witness to Frankfurt's upper middle-class Westend and Jewish life in Frankfurt, but also to expulsion and expropriation during the National Socialist era.

Laura Vollmers offers guided tours through the Villa 102 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (in German)
Those who cannot be there will have the opportunity to visit the house in a virtual tour.

The tours are sold out. 



Laura Vollmers is an art historian and provenance researcher from Frankfurt. Her research focuses on the examination of National Socialism, Jewish history of the 19th and 20th centuries and art market networks in Germany.
