On August 18, 1938 Heinrich Opitz from Waldenburg bought the property together with the inventory from Hermann Lang for 18,000 RM and continued the business. "The purchaser also grants Hermann Lang, his wife Klara and his sister Lina "a right of residence for a period of one year from September 1 of this year, in the back building of the sold property. [...] The seller is non-Aryan. The buyer is Aryan."

On 1 August 1988 a change of legal entity takes place: The Opitz family transfers the house at Bertholdstraße 22 to the town council of Schleusingen/KWV. It is in a desolate state, so the city decides to demolish the house.
