Januar 1933 erstickten die Nationalsozialisten in kurzer Zeit die exaltierte Vergnügungskultur der Weimarer Republik mit all ihren Offenheiten und Ambivalenzen. Drogen wurden tabuisiert, da sie andere Irrealitäten erlebbar machten als die nationalsozialistischen. »Verführungsgifte«Hinweis hatten in einem System, in dem allein der Führer verführen sollte, keinen Platz mehr.

Zwischen Farnen und Schösslingen steht das alte, aus Holz errichtete »Hexenhäuschen« von Gründer Theodor Temmler, die einstige Keimzelle der Firma.
