Freud’s Butcher: A Jewish Roots Journey to Vienna

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


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.

Send a kid to Summer Camp J!

Liam Keith, age 10, tells us “I love camp because of the pool and the field trips. My first day of camp I was super scared, but I liked my counselors a lot. When asked if he made friends at camp, he says, “Yes, I made friends in camp. Keaton and I are really good friends. He taught me how to get better at archery and I taught him how to swim better.” When we asked Liam about what he learned at camp, he responds, “In my second year of camp I did robotics and I learned a lot of multiplication. When I went back to school they put me in extended math, and I still am in extended math…I still have the robot I made, too.” When asked what advice he would give to kids who are new to camp, he said, very wisely, “It’s kind of scary at first, but if you just be yourself and talk to people, it will be very easy.”

Prom-o-rama is based off of the idea of Cinderella's fairy godmother making her dream to attend the ball come true. The J is excited to partner with Cinderella's Closet, which was created to do just that - provide dresses and accessories to enable girls to attend their high school proms. It’s also a way to recycle these lightly used items.

Bring dresses in any size to The J before March 30th to help make a girl’s dream come true!

Please make sure dresses are current with what a high school girl would wear and make sure items are clean.
