"Weekend at Scharmützelsee" 8mm Home Movie, 16 min., 1935

When public beaches were closed to Jews in 1935, the Jewish community board in Berlin put pressure on the Korngold family to open their estate on the nearby lake Scharmützelsee to the Jewish public; at the same time, profits for Jewish business owners were heavily curtailed by Nazi authorities. In order to keep up a certain standard of living, the Korngolds moved from the ‘mansion to the servants’ quarters’ and opened the estate to Jewish paying guests for the summers of 1935-1938.
