Official opening of Alphons Silbermann Haus

Already for several months, the 191 young residents feel very much at home in the SMARTments student at Höninger Weg 115 in Cologne. Now the opening was officially completed with a ceremony. Following the tradition of our partner, the Moses Mendelssohn Foundation, this SMARTment was named after an outstanding Jewish public figure who had a personal relationship with this city. The property in the Cologne Zollstock district bears the name Alphons Silbermann Haus – after the prominent sociologist who was forced to emigrate in 1933 and returned to Germany in 1963.
