HERLITZ from Neisse, Frankfurt, and Marburg [was: please help Genner # 546778]
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
According to an 1898 marriage record on Ancestry, Fritz HERLITZ, born 1871, married Jettchen ROTHSCHILD, born 1874. Unless Fritz had a second (and younger wife), it's unlikely that he had a son who is still alive. Perhaps the Michael Herlitz whose name shows up in a Google search is a grandson or great-grandson, if related at all.
It's interesting to see that Fritz Herlitz's 1948 death record -- clearly the right Fritz -- says that his parents were Alfred and Gretel and that he was "konfessionloss" (had no religion). Perhaps Fritz and his family survived by passing as non-Jews.
Suggestion: Post also to JewishGen's "GerSIG" list. Some of its most knowledgeable subscribers are not on this list.

PS Ismar Herlitz was transported from Frankfurt to Kovno on Nov. 22, 1941. Two of my father's sisters, Sophie Stern and Toni Stern, were on the same train, which took over 900 Frankfurt Jews to what's now Kaunas, Lithuania. They were all shot to death on arrival, at the infamous Ninth Fort. A memorial to these victims was recently dedicated at the site: https://www.lzb.lt/en/2018/04/19/memorial-plaque-unveiled-on-ninth-fort-mass-murder-field/ . More information about the transport:
