      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. Handschuhsheimerin

    Thanks. I just looked at a map of Heidelberg and there's Handschuhsheim in the north of the city. So the word literally means "glove home", I guess.
  2. Handschuhsheimerin

    Here's a random example I picked from Google: "Aber auch Emilie Meier, keine der intellektuellen Vorzeigefrauen, sondern alteingesessene einfache Handschuhsheimerin, findet sich in der Reihe der Heidelberger Frauenporträts." This came from http://ww2.heidelberg.de/stadtblatt-online/index.php?artikel_id=1607&bf=. I've come across the word many times and other than something to do with gloves, no idea of its definition.
  3. Handschuhsheimerin

    Any idea what Handschuhsheimerin means? Handschuh is a glove, but that's all I can figure out. I've come across this word often and the contexts are so varied that that does not help. Trying on line translators and trying dictionaries falls. Anyone know?
