Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A large department store founded in 1907 by Adolf Jandorf, it was taken over in 1927 by the Jewish-owned Hertie Company. With the Nazi rise to power in the 1930s, the race laws prohibited Jewish ownership and the department store was aryanized between 1935 and 1938. However, the name of the store remained the same.
