We lost an important Bukovynian personality, who was always an ardent Czernowitzerin in her heart. Her personal stories, which drew a vivid picture of her birthplace, are legendary. She treated her visitors with Totsch, Schmettentorte and other Bukovynian delicatessen, expressing her hospitality and devotion. She was an active fighter for intellectually keeping the memory of the old Czernowitz alive, writing about her childhood, youth and family history in her books. These books are an invaluable source for historians and an essential part of the library of our museum.
The Chernivtsi Museum of Bukovynian Jewish History and Culture wants to express its sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Hedwig Brenner. We will remember this outstanding lady, who always was a symbol of the true Czernowitz.
