Within a short span of time, one of the oldest late-18th-century townhouses, located at Podgórna Street, became the residence of two very different people. One of them was Karol Marcinkowski, who lived there from 1837 until his death in 1846 and who helped establish two institutions of major significance for advancing “organic work” in Poznań: the Scientific Assistance Society and the Bazar Joint Stock Company. A year after Marcinkowski’s death, the house became the birthplace of Paul von Hindenburg, the Prussian World War I commander and later President of Germany, who in 1933 entrusted the post of Chancellor to Adolf Hitler.
