Freud’s Butcher: A Jewish Roots Journey to Vienna

March 24 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

$5

Volumes have been written about Sigmund Freud and his family, including their flight from Nazi-occupied Austria in 1938. Far less is known about the relatives of Siegmund Kornmehl, whose butcher shop shared the famous address of 19 Berggasse for 44 years, and who was forced to sign over his business to the Nazis in the same year.

A slide show and talk by Edie Jarolim, the great niece of the successful tradesman, introduces the Kornmehl family, who thrived in the city during the same period as the Freuds did and who intersected with them in a variety of ways. Other colorful family members include Curtis Allina, who put the heads on Pez candy dispensers.

Edie Jarolim has a Ph.D. in American literature from New York University and is the author of five books and hundreds of articles ranging from travel and restaurants to art and dogs. She started the Freud’s Butcher blog (FreudsButcher.com) in 2012, when she discovered a picture of her great uncle’s shop on the website of Vienna’s Sigmund Freud Museum. She gave a talk about her family there in 2018.

"Forgetting is the human condition that time, events,
changes in cultural perspective, memory’s inherent decay
and mutability all lead to."
