Else Schattschneider, née Rosener, born 19 Apr. 1884, deported 25 Oct. 1941 to Lodz, killed May 1942 in Chelmno

Else Schattschneider was the niece of the bronze casters Albert and Siegfried Loevy from Berlin. The Jewish brothers Loevy had manufactured, among other items, the bronze inscription "Dem Deutschen Volke" at the Reichstag Building.

Else was married to Hans Christian August Schattschneider, the owner of the health care supply store Schattschneider at the Colonnaden 46 in Hamburg. The health care supply store had belonged to the family since 1869.

Else Schattschneider’s husband was considered an "Aryan" according to the categories of the time, and he passed away in Jan. 1935. The circumstance of Else being Jewish meant that the National-Socialist-minded employees at the store did not accept her as the heiress and tormented her severely, according to information from family members. The "Aryan" Georg Heinrich Bühring, perfumer of Hamburg, eventually took over the business in June 1935 as a shareholder and continued to run it under the old name "Sanitätshaus Schattschneider". In 1936 he was already entered as the sole owner in the trade register. The business still exists to this day at Colonnaden 46.

Following the loss of her business, Else Schattschneider was forced to survive on minimal financial means. She took tenants into her apartment at Parkallee 10. When her financial situation became even more precarious, she moved in with Blum and lived as a tenant herself at Isestraße 69. It was there that she received her deportation orders for Lodz. In May 1942 she was deported from Lodz Ghetto and to the nearby extermination camp Chelmno and killed.
