Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

FRAU PEISER OF BRANDENBURGSTRASSE

The picture below (already presented in the previous post about the announced death of a small local library) is most probably the only existing image of Bona Peiser (the lady standing in the reading room full of guests). But even that is not certain.

Bona Peiser, although born in Berlin-Mitte (in Auguststrasse 73), moved at the age of 11 with her father (a book publisher, Wolf Peiser) and the mother (Rosalie Peiser nee Gottheil) to the southern Luisenstadt known as “Luisenstadt diesseits des Kanals” (west of the old and long gone Luisenstädtischer Kanal).

They took a flat in the house at 11 Brandenburgstrasse – today´s Lobeckstrasse. She lived at this address until her death in 1929.
