Deutscher Kleinempfänger [German small radio] manufactured by G. Schaub in 1938. The radio was produced to help spread Nazi propaganda. It was made to sell at a low cost, so the majority of people could afford it. It lacked shortwave reception to make it difficult to receive foreign broadcasts. The radio was nicknamed Goebbels’ Schnauze [Snout], referring to the Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, who often addressed the public through radio.
Margaretha Rosenfeld (1871-1944) was born Emma Maria Margaretha Diesel in Chemitz to Adolf and Friederike Diesel. She lived in Kleinmachnow with her husband, Bernhard Rosenfeld (1867-1942), who was born in Leipzig to Juda and Sara Pepie Rosenfeld. Although Margaretha was not Jewish, Bernhard was forced to wear the yellow star, was subject to the Judenvermögensabgabe, was forced to sell the family’s house, and saw his Dresdner Bank account placed under the supervision of the Devisenstelle. Their daughter, Gertrud Rosenfeld (1895-?), was also considered Jewish under the Nuremberg laws even though she was raised Christian.
