Ingeborg Boxhammer is a freelance researcher in Bonn, Germany who created a lecture centered around Margarete and Helene's lives.
After Helene's death in 1917, Margarete Herz opened a vegetarian restaurant in eastern Germany, but needed to flee the country in 1938 because she was Jewish and lost all her belongings to the Nazi Regime. She made her first home in Chicago, on Paulina Street above the Herz General Store with her relatives. With the help of American relatives, including Judy Chrisman, a retired D/97 elementary school librarian and long-time Oak Park resident, Ingeborg's lecture includes information and photos of these early suffragettes in Germany.
