Henschel Verlag - Fashion Metropolis Berlin 1836–1939. The story of the rise and destruction of the Jewish fashion industry - something unique emerged in the heart of Berlin in the nineteenth century: a creative center for fashion and ready-made clothing. The hundreds of clothing companies that were established here manufactured modern clothing and developed new designs that were sold throughout Germany and the world. This industry reached the height of its success in the 1920s. Freed from their corsets sophisticated women of the time dressed in the ‘Berlin chic’ sold by Valentin Manheimer Herrmann Gerson or the Wertheim department stores. After 1933 however, most Jewish clothing industrialists were confronted with hatred and violence. Many of their companies were ‘Aryanized’ while they were robbed displaced and murdered. Under new Aryan management, these companies created conservative clothing that represented an entirely different image of women. With its gripping depiction of events and a trove of historical images, this book brings to life Berlin’s fashionable past while also serving as a clear and painful reminder of the great injustice that was committed.
