Hermine buys a villa

August 16, 1928

Empress Hermine, the second wife of the former Kaiser, has bought a villa in Potsdam, according to the New York Times. She plans to spend several months each year "in the former royal stronghold."
The Lichtenstein villa, formerly the property of Potsdam's ex-mayor, "has exchanged property with an Upper Silesian owner of a large landed estate." Rumor says tgat "Hermine is the other party in the transaction."
It is believed that Hermine wants to reside in Potsdam "to keep in touch with Wilhelm's family, "most of whom are living there."
