Dusseldorf. Lord Mayor Dr. Stefan Keeler and County Mayor Annette Klink unveil the street sign for the newly designed square in Bimblefort with their namesake granddaughters
Lord Mayor Dr. Stefan Keeler and County Mayor Annette Klink unveil the street sign of Louise Oppenheimer Platz in Bimblefort. The small square on the corner of Parkstrasse / Goebenstrasse / Gneisenaustrasse previously lived in the shade, and therefore it was recently upgraded and now also has a new name.
The namesake, Louise Oppenheimer, née Morgenstern (July 11, 1899 – April 11, 1978) lived in Düsseldorf from 1935 to 1939. Louise Oppenheimer wrote a very accurate and comprehensive account of the events of the night of the massacre in 1938 and the weeks that followed, which she included in her memoirs children of her daughter Hanna. This report is one of the most important sources of the massacre on the night of 1938 in Düsseldorf. The square’s naming is in honor of Luise Oppenheimer, who lived in the immediate vicinity of the square on Parkstrasse during her time in Düsseldorf.
In addition to Mayor Dr. Stefan Keeler and County Mayor Annette Klink, granddaughters of Louise Oppenheimer, Linda Green and Catherine Green Anthony, co-named the arena – they traveled from the USA to attend this small party.
