The Reissner Family in Guben

Some three generations of the Reissner family lived in Guben after migrating from Neustadt bei Pinne (now Lwowek, Poland). Max Marcus Reissner, Mann Marcus's son, started the company Reissner, Wohl, & Co., GMBH, which produced textiles in a factory (tuchfabrik) that still stands disused in the town. The factory was lost upon the rise of the Nazis, and many of the family emigrated to other countries.
