11. Children’s Room

In 1924, Cantor Michael Eisemann and his wife Klara moved into the Jewish community center with their little boys, Ludwig and Rudolf. The children’s bedroom opens only to the corridor; in the warmer months Michael Eisemann gathered the children here for their Hebrew lessons. A third child was born in 1925, Heinz, who died at the age of a few months and was buried by his father in the new cemetery at Isenbergstraße.

During the renovation of the house, all walls were first cleared of plaster. The north face was deliberately not repainted, to reveal a piece of architectural history, namely the blue balks in the wall that probably date back to when the Jewish community acquired the house and set up a school.
