Backdrop of the name

The term drj is the abbreviation of dr. julius, which forms a logo type. As a first name and title, this „Dr. Julius“ refers to the namesake of Leberstrasse on the Rote Insel in Berlin-Schöneberg:
On this street, Dr. Julius Leber, a representative in the Reichstag and fierce opponent of the Nazi regime, ran a coal business, starting in 1937, after he was released from the concentration camp where he had been imprisoned since 1933. The business also served as a meeting point for members of the German resistance. Denounced shortly before the attempt to assassinate Hitler on July 20, 1944, Leber was executed six months later in Plötzensee. His wife and comrade-in-arms Annedore Leber continued the business in West Berlin after the war, while also founding a press for political literature. With her publications she fought — contrary to the general attitude of the post-war era — against the abdication of individual and societal responsibility for the catastrophe of National Socialism.
