Bertha Pappenheim-Haus

In 1996 the City of Neu-Isenburg opened a memorial site which commemorates the life and work of Bertha Pappenheim, who was the founder and the principal of Heim Isenburg. The project is supported by the “Bertha Pappenheim Initiative”, where representatives from the town, such as the municipality, local parties, churches, associations, historical professionals and interested citizens cooperate.

A permanent exhibition and a library tell us more about Jewish women’s rights activist Bertha Pappenheim, the German Jewish Women’s Association together with the history of the town Neu-Isenburg. The Neu-Isenburg project also offers regular lectures, presentations and discussions about related cultural and socio-political issues.
