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
