Bamberger Haus Bremen 2011

Bamberger Haus Bremen 2011

Julius Bamberger opened his Department Store in Bremen in December 1929. It was the first real big store with nine floors.
In 1937 he fled Germany. In 2007 the Bamberger Haus was renovated and the two missing top floors were added. A permanent exhibition reminds of Julius Bamberger´s life. The building is still a "must see" and is home for the Bremen Community College (Volkshochschule)
On 12 December 2011 I was there for a weekend course in creative writing and I did this sketch during my lunch break.
