Margaretha Rosenfeld papers

Document | Accession Number: 1997.119.11

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.
