The generosity of Emma Louise Zell

The creation of Cité Seniors, which opened its doors on 17 November 2006, was made possible by a donation from Emma Louise Zell. This Jewish dancer from Berlin, who fled the Nazis and took refuge in Geneva in 1937, received a warm welcome from the City of Geneva’s social service. In recognition of this, Emma Louise Zell bequeathed a large sum of money to the City of Geneva, stipulating that this fund should be used to help senior citizens. In honour of her memory, an IT area now bears her name.
