This trail presents Brno in the words of the Löw-Beer family and the stories of their lives. Meet the family that built not only the Tugendhat Home but also the factory that was celebrated as Schindler’s Ark in Steven Spielberg’s world-renowned film Schindler’s List. Discover the modern culture of the 1920s and 1930s, which was significantly shaped by Jewish citizens, and its destruction after 1938. Besides Czech studies, two publications by descendants of the family were an important source for the establishment of the themed trail: Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat and Daniel Low-Beer (idea for this trail), see Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat, Ivo Hammer and Wolf Tegethoff, Haus Tugendhat. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (2014); Daniel Low-Beer, The Arks. The Löw-Beer story behind Schindler’s List and House Tugendhat (2020).
