Finding the right MICHAELIS is not as simple as it may appear. There are
several dozen persons with the name MICHAELIS in the 1939 census. These
include two persons with the name Max MICHAELIS resident in Berlin. Both
were born in 1865 (not 1866). One was born October 23, 1865 in Meseritz,
and was resident in Berlin Charlottenburg at Kantstrasse 120. He had
graduate degrees >from the Berlin Hochschule and Heidelberg. He was deported
July 30, 1942 to Theresienstadt and then to Treblinka (according to the
Theresienstadt memorial book). On the other hand, according to the German
Government's Gedenkbuch he died (verschollen) in Minsk. The second Max
MICHAELIS was born in Bad Pyrmont on April 18, 1865 and was resident in
Genossenschaftstrasse 68. His fate is not given in any reference book
available to me.
Assuming that the first Max is the correct one, unfortunately, no other
person with the name MICHAELIS is listed as resident at the same address.
It is noted that he had four Jewish grandparents.
