Biographical Note

Anne Fischer (Rosenberg) was born on August 12, 1902 in Stuttgart, Germany. At 23 she married Ernst Fischer (b. September 27, 1896), who worked at the University of Frankfurt Medical School. The couple had two children, George and Eva. In 1933, Ernst lost his position with the University, and decided to move his family to the States as anti-Semitism rose in Europe. The Fischers eventually moved to Richmond, where Anne became involved in social work. The couple was very involved in the community, and were known for their collection of German artwork, which Anne later donated to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia.
