The apartment building at József nádor Square 9 was designed by an important architect of the era, Antal Gottleb. In the 1930’s, a fifth floor and an elevator were added to the originally four-storey building. It was during these years, when a popular actress, Nusi Somogyi lived in the house. In 1944 the building was a “yellow-star house”. During the Second World War the building was four times hit by a bomb. On the ground floor a dry-cleaner and a grocery store operated, and so the inhabitants, who managed to survive the siege by hiding in the cellar, have long remembered the smell of burnt flour and sugar.
