Unfolding CommunitiesThe lost Jews of Unsleben
Owner 1932: Karoline Liebenthal
In that house the Liebenthal family had a cheese making trade. The young families did take over the Fa. Zschökel, which has been founded in 1892 in Leipzig by their uncle Hermann, transferred it in 1914 to Unsleben and erected a factory and in 1928 a villa for four families. After their emigration Hermann Müller carried on there with fabrication of lemonade.
After the war the house was taken over by the Kochfamily, who enlarged the building for a shoe business. Later they converted the building for a drug store. Nowadays an office for physiotherapy is located there. Karoline Liebenthal, whose husband Adolf died already in 1923, was able to emigrate via Havanna into the USA in 1938.
