Back in Town – A Renaissance Goblet made in Frankfurt

One of Frankfurt's most important art collections of the twentieth century belonged to Albert Ullmann (1862–1912), director of the Frankfurt Cassella Works, and his wife Hedwig (1872–1945). Following the assumption of power by the National Socialists in 1933, the Ullmanns – a Jewish family – were ultimately forced to leave the country. The goblet was one of the few objects to remain with her. In 2012, the goblet was offered for sale to the historisches museum.

Open doors at the Römer

The Frankfurt Römer opened its doors on the 22nd & 23rd of March. Naturally the historische museum frankfurt attended as well and was quite happy to greet so many friendly visitors who took part in our MEMORY TREE-survey concerning their very own feeling of ‘home’. Are they at home in Frankfurt? If yes, where exactly in Frankfurt? If not, where else?
