Trümmerfrau were women who, in the aftermath of World War II, helped clear and reconstruct the bombed cities of Germany and Austria. Hundreds of cities had suffered significant bombing and firestorm damage through aerial attacks and ground war, so with many men dead or prisoners of war, this monumental task fell to a large degree on women.

The teaching building at Blochmannstraße 2 is located in the Pirnaische Vorstadt in Dresden. The building in Blochmannstraße was built in 1911/1912 according to plans by the city planning officer Hans Erlwein as a new educational building for the expansion of the Ehrlichsche Stift. After its partial destruction in the air raids in the final phase of the Second World War, reconstruction took place in 1950/1951 in the style of socialist classicism of "peculiar, sober beauty" using the existing building fabric in "based on the traditional Dresden building method". A sandstone rustica and a vertical structuring by pilaster strips on the upper floors are hallmarks of the building.
