Margrethe Kauffman


Daughter of Salomon Kauffmann (1824-1900). Salomon's brothers were Julius, Robert, Wilhelm and Adolf. Adolf was trained as a physician, but his interest was music and he helped found the Breslau Orchestral Society. The brothers were the sons of Meyer Kauffmann (1791-1871), a textile seller from Schweidnitz who began establishing textiles factories in Breslau from 1841. The first four brothers joined their father in the textile business and they became successful merchants and industrialists. Salomon greatly increased the success of their business, and he became an important figure in Breslau. He was chairman of the Breslau Orchestral Society, and helped Brahms receive an honorary degree from the Breslau University.[M23]
