VIENNESE JEWISH WOMEN IN HORTICULTURE AND GARDEN ARCHITECTURE
Looking at six Jewish female garden architects, we examine the conditions and the (self-)concept of women working in horticulture and garden architecture in Vienna in the 1920s and 1930s. Business was defined by artistic and design-oriented claims, technical know-how, and economic management. The "Anschluss" in 1938 interrupted or destroyed the life and work of all these women. The paper shows both the great impact they had on Viennese garden architecture and the vacuum the emigration of 1938 left in Austria.
