, 1943

As part of the "Factory Action" starting on 27 February 1943, the last Jews in Berlin were to be rounded up in collection camps and then deported. The preferred method was raids on factories in which Jewish forced laborers were employed. The poet Gertrud Kolmar, whose actual name was Chodziesner, was also arrested, presumably at her place of work, and murdered in Auschwitz shortly after. Her family had been forced to sell their villa in Falkensee-Finkenkrug as early as 1938 and had to relocate to a "Jew House" in Berlin-Schöneberg. They were only allowed to take the most essential items. Parts of the household were given to the staff. Most likely including this mocha set. When a rose was baptized Gertrud Kolmar in the Museum Falkensee in 2011, the acquaintance of a former housemaid of the Chodziesner family donated nine parts of the set which had survived.
