North German Dynasties IV

A ship’s carpenter from Helgoland made the name Rickmers famous on the world’s oceans. Handmade sweets are what brought success to Leysieffer from Osnabrück. These North German dynasties are well known to everyone; behind them are family businesses and often have been for many generations. The descendants of the founding fathers, the present-day leaders of the companies, give us an insight into the history, recipe for success, strokes of fate and highlights of these “North German dynasties”.
