If you look closely you can see what appears to be shanks of ham and speck hanging in the window of Siegmund Kornmehl’s butcher shop at Berggasse 19 in Vienna. This is a crop from a well-known photograph by Edmund Engelman taken in May 1938, a couple of weeks after the “Anschluß,” the annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany on March 12. After 44 years at this address, this shop too was “Aryanized”.
