Repression of the past was common in Germany after the War. It is thus no surprise to find out that neither the pupils nor the teachers at the Israelitische Töchterschule (school for speech disorders) knew much about their school's past until a teacher accidentally stumbled upon revealing documents in 1977. Built in 1883, the building was home to a Jewish girls' school until being closed down by the Nazis in 1942. A memorial and an education centre are now located on the top floor and offer guided walks, seminars and courses, as well as an exhibition on the history of Jewish schools in Hamburg.
