Frenkel Speaks at Rededication of Hermes Sculpture
Douglas Frenkel stands beside Hermes statue.

DOUGLAS FRENKEL, Practice Professor of Law and Clinical Director, stands next to a sculpture donated to Humboldt University in 1912 by his great-grandfather. Last November, Frenkel visited the German university in Berlin to speak at the rededication of the sculpture, a statue of Hermes. The statue’s origins were unknown until the publication in 2002 of a legal history dissertation on the Nazi confiscation of a bank founded by Hermann Frenkel, the professor’s great-grandfather. The book’s author, Berlin lawyer Henning Kahmann LLM ’99, was in Frenkel’s Mediation course at Penn and decided to pursue the research that led to this discovery after learning Frenkel’s family background.
