Articles by this author

Fanny Neuda

In contrast to the earlier works, which were mainly composed by men, Fanny Neuda’s Stunden der Andacht (Hours of Devotion) was probably the first prayer book for Jewish women in the nineteenth century written by a woman.

Henriette May

Caring for the needs and problems of her fellow beings was an early experience in the life of Henriette May (née Lövinson), the oldest of numerous siblings. Although she herself remained childless, the upbringing of children and care for needy adults became her life’s mission.

Jenny Apolant

An ardent suffragist, Apolant served as a board member of the General Association from 1910 to 1925. In Frankfurt, where she was from 1919 to 1924 one of the first women municipal councillors, representing the Democrats, she initiated innovative institutions such as care for sick people, alcohol-free popular restaurants and, during the inflation, a central location for the sale of privately-owned valuables, a Sick Fund and winter aid.
