Here you can see a promo photo of Adolf Goldmann’s purses. It even includes his slogan:

“If you’re smart and on the top, buy a purse in our shop” (“Bist du klug und auf der Höh’, trag dein Geld im Portmonnaie.”).

My father-in-law emigrated to Germany from a Polish small town when he was 19 years old. He didn’t have anything.

But over the years, he established a big leatherwork factory, got a house and a car with a chauffeur.

Before the war, he even presented his products at the Leipzig Trade Show.

Lotte, his oldest daughter, also worked in the factory.
