Commemorating Builder of Bridges “Trude Simonsohn”

With this motion (NR.492) the coalition commissions the magistrate to design a form of artistic commemoration for Frankfurt’s honorary citizen Trude Simonsohn. Trude Simonsohn died on 6 January 2022 at the age of 100. She was active in the resistance against the Nazis and survived the concentration camps Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. As a witness of the Nazi regime and a convinced anti-fascist, she taught countless young people the importance of the fight against anti-Semitism, racism and right-wing extremism.

Additionally we passed an accompanying motion (NR.491) that commissions the magistrate to include Trude Simonsohn`s name in the list of names proposed for street naming

Volt Frankfurt: the political party

Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.

Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions. 

We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
