“Dreifaltigkeitsgasse was a long street with a mixed population. In 1940, 17 expropriated houses are listed, 5 of them owned by organisations. 7 owners were registered as Jewish, one as German and four persons without ethnic description. In 1936, 644 inhabitants were listed on the street. Among them 30% were office employees or had academic or liberal professions, 26% were merchants, shopkeepers or grocers and 25% were artisans and craftsmen of different kinds. Most shops had probably local customers”

In October 1941, Dreifaltigkeitsgasse was incorporated into the ghetto in which 50,000 Jews were forced to move by the Romanian authorities.
Poet Rose Ausländer lived in the street in the 1930s and it was here that she met the poet Paul Celan (both survived the Holocaust).
Bucovina I (Rose Ausländer)
butterflies in her hair
says the sun
red melon milk
white maize milk
I made them sweet
Violet pine cones
airwings birds and foliage
The Carpathian ridge
to carry you
songs in four languages
who understand each other
(English translation by Julia Samwer)
