Marie-Louise Sarre lived in Berlin before World War II. Her friends called her “Puppi,” meaning “small doll” in German. She didn’t have much of a doll when she became active in the German resistance against Hitler. In the summer of 1944 she was involved in a scheme to secure the support of none other than Heinrich Himmler in a plan to assassinate Hitler.

After the failed coup attempt of July 20, 1944, she and many others were arrested and imprisoned by the Gestapo. She managed to escape and fled to Ascona, Switzerland, where she lived until her death at age 95, in 1999.

Her father was Friedrich Sarre, the first director of the Department of Islamic Art at the Kaiser Friedrich Museum (today’s Bode Museum) in Berlin. Her maternal grandfather was Carl Humann, the discoverer and excavator of the Pergamum Altar in Turkey in the 1880s.

Her father also was member of The Solf Circle (German: Solf-Kreis) which was an informal gathering of German intellectuals involved in the resistance against Nazi Germany. Most members were arrested and executed after attending a tea party held near Heidelberg on September 10, 1943, at the residence of Elisabeth von Thadden. The group’s downfall also ultimately led to the demise of the Abwehr in February 1944.

Wiener Werkstätte (en: Viennese Workshops), was founded in 1903. Two of the founders were the artists Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser.

Important members of this workshop were the painter Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Emilie Floge, Max Lenz, Wilhelm Lizst, Emil Orlik, Dagobert Peche, Eduard Wimmer Wisgrill, Leopold Bauer, Oskar Kokoschka, Vally Wieselthier, Otto Prutscher, Emanuel Margold, Hans Ofner, C.O. Czeschka, Michael Powolny, Carl Moll and Maria Likarz.

The Wiener Werkstätte created works of craftsmanship in a very distinctive style, the Wiener Werkstätte Style. The workshop mainly dealt with creating jewelry, fabrics for clothing, ceramics and pottery, and furniture, all characterized by simple shapes, minimal decoration and geometric patterning.

Due to poor finances, the Wiener Werkstätte closed in 1932.
