Obituary of Helene LOEB (on right): Bad Nauheim, 10th of Dec. On the Sabbath corresponding to the Torah portion Chayeh Sarah (the life of Sarah), our community was set into deep grief. Mrs. Helene FLÖRSHEIM, born LÖB, wife of the hotelier Hermann FLÖRSHEIM, exhaled her pure soul. With the family, our whole community is mourning and beyond that her tremendous wide circle of acquaintances in the world, where the Hotel Flörsheim is known and appreciated as a house that is led in a real Jewish spirit.
At the grave, Mr. Rabbi Dr. Cohn, Marburg, under whose supervision the hotel is standing, drew a picture of the character of this rare woman, who even on the deathbed laid at the heart of her husband and the children to continue their house in their meaning and to keep it as a homestead of real Jewish tradition.
In the mourning house, Mr. Teacher Bettmann as a friend of the family, spoke words of honorable remembrance.
May her soul be bound up in the bond of life.
