In 2020 a book from the library of Adele Reifenberg could be given back.

Adele Reifenberg was born in Berlin on 3 March 1893 as the first child of Ernst and Rosa Reifenberg, née Ginsberg. She had two brothers, Adolf and Heinz. In Berlin she attended the "Charlottenschule". Already at a young age she felt the desire to become a painter. In Berlin and Weimar she studied art with Lovis Corinth. In 1930 she married the painter Julius Rosenbaum, who was born on 9 July 1879 in Neuenburg in West Prussia.

In National Socialist Germany, Adele and Julius Rosenbaum were persecuted as Jewish. Both succeeded in escaping to Great Britain in 1939. They lived in London, where they opened a painting school in 1948. Julius Rosenbaum died on 24 August 1956 during a trip in The Hague. Adele Rosenbaum died in April 1986 at the age of 93 in London.

The accession of the book into the holdings of the Berlin City Library is unknown. It was added to the collection shortly after the end of the war in 1945. In the acquisition journal, only "Bücherlager" ("book storage") is noted as the vendor.
