    Biography Jewish companies made up a large part of his clientele. When Hitler came to power, these clients had to hand their businesses over to Christians who were prohibited from buying from Jews or factories run by Jews so business slowed very fast. [...] Rosenthal had to sell his factories [...] without [...] getting the money that had been agreed upon in the contract. The bank declared his property holdings forfeit and he had to leave Germany for Holland without any financial resources.
    Kurt Heinrich, Moritz Rosenthal's son-in-law, 1947
    Moritz Rosenthal came from a Jewish family of merchants and moved to Berlin in 1900. He set up a linens factory in 1906 which he expanded within a few years. At the same time, he was a voluntary commercial judge and a city councillor. From mid-1928 he was on the loans committee of the municipal bank, which had granted loans to the Sklarek Brothers, who were later convicted of fraud. Because Rosenthal had supplied linens to the Sklarek Company, proceedings were instituted against him for preferential treatment but quashed for want of evidence. In 1930, Rosenthal was elected unsalaried city councillor in the district of Kreuzberg. In 1933 he was ousted from all his honorary posts. He and his family emigrated three years later. While his three elder children emigrated to the US, he and his wife Ulla and their youngest daughter Gabriele moved to the Netherlands. They were arrested in 1943 and deported to Auschwitz via Westerbork camp and Theresienstadt ghetto. Moritz Rosenthal and his wife were murdered but Gabriele survived. All the family's assets in Europe were confiscated by the Reich. In 1999, a plaque was erected at Stralauer Straße 42-45, the site of the linens factory, to commemorate Moritz and Ulla Rosenthal. In 2003, there were public protests at the auction of the painting Lustige Gesellschaft by Jacob Duck, that was known to have come from Moritz Rosenthal’s stolen property, at Christies in London.
    Moritz Rosenthal was a city councillor; 1921 – 1929 nominated for election (DDP).
