Additions to the Data on the ABELES Family #austria-czech

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Susan,
dear Celia,

the data on the Munich branch of the ABELES family is confirmed and
supplemented by the "Biographisches Gedenkbuch der Muenchener Juden
1933-1945", vol. 1 (Muenchen: Stadtarchiv, 2003) which also provides
pictures of some of the members, e.g. of Ernst ABELES in his Austrian
uniform.

The ABELES Family is also listed in the memorial Book for the Deportees
to the Baltic states and the Theresienstadt Memorial Book.

Additional to the data follows below:

He had a son Max, b. Nov 21, 1865 in Chiesch who married Dorothea ASCHENBRENNER
and they had 7 children. The oldest was Theresa, who had 7 younger
brothers, some of them born in Munich."

I have been searching for any clues about a pair of missing ABELES
from Moravia, Richard and Fritz, but instead found a mention on Yad
Vashem of the above Max and Dorothea and the tragic fate of their son
Friedrich and his two sons [grandsons of Max and Dorothea] .

Father: Max; Mother: Dora of Chiesch Son: Friederich born 1 April 1892 -
in Chiesch and murdered in Riga in Nov. 1941 together with his sons
Oskar/David born 23 Feb 1922 in Munich and Walter, born 1 Jan 1927.

The Baltic Memorial Book has the following listings for the transport
from Munich to Kowno/Lithuania (NOT Riga!). Based on extensive research
the accompanying article describes that five transports >from Berlin,
Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna and Breslau were originally intended for Riga
but were diverted to Kowno. All people on the Munich transport of Nov
20, 1941 were murdered in Kowno/Lithuania on Nov 25, 1941.
