Landauer, Augsburg

On the reverse of an old Augsburg trolley ticket of late 1920s there is an advertisement for the Landauer Kaufhaus in Buergermeister Fischer Street, at the Koenigsplatz. Self-confident it states:

LANDAUER AUGSBURG – Das weitaus größte KAUFHAUS SCHWABENS mit seinen 52 Spezial-Abteilungen.

The by far biggest department store in (the district of) Swabia with 52 special departments

In the early years of the NAZi rule the once famous Landauer Kaufhaus was dispossesed under the rules of so called “Arisierung” (Aryanization) and by the new “Aryan” owner Albert Golisch  retitled as “Zentralkaufhaus”.
