Handschin Foundation, foundations
The Basel assets of Heinrich Handschin were speedily liquidated. Jakob Wirz renounced the right to buy the house at the Schtitzenmattstrasse, and the Handschin household was liquidated at an auction and the property was sold for the Foundation. Only the disbursing of the legacies of sfr. 25,000.00 to relatives who had not been mentioned in the will took until 1895 because these people also had to prove that they were indeed relatives.
