Impressions…Vladivostok, Russia

Posted in Event, Impressions by Anne Bernecker on 20 November, 2019

After Blagovechensk we took the night train to Khabarovsk and then onto Vladivostok. An impressive Russian city on the pacific, where my great-grandfather Adolf Dattan was running the Kunst & Albers department store until the First World War. It was such a fantastic trip, following the footsteps of of our ancestor and to understand more about his life and achievements.

Thank you also for everyone at the Arseniev Museum, for the private tour of the Kunst & Albers exhibition and through the city. It was so inspiring to hear more about Adolf Dattan’s life, to visit the former department store, the Dattan house and former dining hall he built, and to find out that he also used to produce fashion and porcelain for Kunst & Albers.

Thank you for everyone who helped making it an amazing and unforgettable trip!!

Impressions…Blagovechensk, Russia

Posted in Architecture, Impressions by Anne Bernecker on 28 September, 2019

End of September I headed into deepest Russia together with my sister, brother, cousins and family friend and historian Lothar Deeg, to follow the footsteps of our great-grandfather Adolf Dattan and his life in Siberia. He was working at the Kunst & Albers department store in Vladivostok before the First World War, managed to grow the company tremendously and built various dependences around the Amur region.

Here some impressions from our first stop in Blagovechensk, where now the Amur Oblast Museum is housed in the former department store.
