Frau Weiss

Bach Schule, Frankfurt, April 2nd, 1984

Mrs. Weiß was one of our teachers at Bach. At first class, she explained few things, including her last name.
Her family name was Weiss (Weiß) and she had no brothers. So it’s customary in West Germany that husband could take wife’s name, to prolong her side of lineage. Pretty cool.
Bach Schule was on Taunusanlage at Bockenheimer Landstrasse, across street from Alte Oper – Old Opera House, a prime location. I went to look for it this summer .. it’s gone, long gone.
