The Munich-born Lilli Rosenthal owned a shop for hats at Theatinerstraße 7 and lived on Maximiliansplatz. From 1939 she was housed in the Hildebrandhaus with 16 other people. 1941 the SS deported Lilli Rosenthal together with 1,000 other Jews from Munich to Kaunus, and murdered them there shortly after their arrival.

In memory of Lilli Rosenthal, a commemorative event was held on 4 July 2024 at 5:00 p.m. at the Gartensalon of the Kunsthalle. In addition to music by Mulo Francel on saxophone, City Councillor Michael Dzeba, representing the Lord Mayor, and Oliver Kasparek, the Managing Director of the Hypo-Kulturstiftung, as well as Dr h.c. mult. Charlotte Knobloch, the President of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria, spoke. There also were speeches by Dr. Regina Prinz from the Munich City Museum, Dr. Birgit Jooss from the Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds and Andrea Stadler-Bachmaier from the district committee 1 - Altstadt-Lehel. Dr Katrina Recker, who had initiated the Memorial Sign, spoke on behalf of the relatives of Lilli Rosenthal.

Afterwards, the Memorial Sign for Lilli Rosenthal was placed in a commemoration at Theatinerstraße 7, where Lilli Rosenthal ran her hat shop.
