Geymüllerschlössel #3

In 1929 the Geymüllerschlössel was mortgaged to the Austrian National Bank. After the Nazi annexation of Austria in March 1938 the heirs of Isidor Mautner (who had died in 1930) lost all civil rights because of being Jewish and were forced to flee the country. The mortgage on the edifice was transferred to the German Reichsbank which seized the building in compensation for the outstanding debt in 1944.
