For the second time, Münchner Wohnen is carrying out a cultural remembrance project together with Public History at the City of Munich's Department of Culture. Under expert guidance, twelve of the company's trainees researched the lives of people from Obergiesing and Harlaching who lived in flats owned by Münchner Wohnen's predecessor companies, GEWOFAG and GWG, and who were victims of Nazi persecution.

At the start of the project, the trainees only had limited information such as the names, birth and death dates of Munich residents Fritz Hausmann, Franz Kohn, Theodor Sternau and Richard Sicher, who were persecuted as Jews, as well as Jehovah's Witness Alois Koller. The trainees researched the lives of the former GEWOFAG and GWG tenants using a variety of sources from different archives. Their reseach made the crimes of the Nazi regime in Munich very visible in an impressive way.

A memorial event for the former GEWOFAG and GWG tenants will be held at Walchenseeplatz 15 (courtyard) on Tuesday, 23 July 2024 at 4:30 p.m. Speakers will include City Councillor Heike Kainz, representing the Lord Mayor of the City of Munich, Dr Doris Zoller, the Chairwoman of the Management Board of Münchner Wohnen, Ellen Presser from the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria and Christoph Wilker for the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Afterwards, from around 5:30 p.m., the Memorial Signs will be placed at the tenants' former homes and Münchner Wohnen trainees will read out the biographies they have researched.
