I wrote yesterday about the Seminar on Czech Jewish
History on Thursday 9th March 2006 - I then wrote:

CORRECTION: I have been informed by Peter Briess in
London, that the concert is in memory of **Eric**
SCHULHOF. Eric, born in 1909, was an officer in the
Czech Army and later manager of a leathergoods
factory in Ostrava. He was the maternal uncle of Peter
Briess.
