Wer Einmal War: Salomon (Salo) Landau (Pages: 1716-1718) #austria-czech



I was wondering if someone could tell me what is written about Salomon (Salo) LANDAU in Wer Einmal War. I believe he is written about on pages 1716-1718. In addition to learning more about Salomon, I would love to know if anything is written about his parents. I am pretty sure Salomon was the brother of my ggg-grandfather Schia LANDAU, who lived in Nowy Sacz.

Thank you,

Hi Jeremy,

According to "Wer Einmal War", Salomon Landau was born on 1 March 1844 in Neu Sandez (Nowy Sacz). Unfortunately, there is no information about his parents.
Salomon was married to Sophie Wachsmann.

Kind regards,

Hi Johann,

Actually "Wer einmal war " gives his father name on his Hebrew name. There Salomon is mentioned as the son of Judah haLevi.

Hi Johann and Laurent,

Thank you so much for this information. I do think my ggg-grandfather Schia Landau and Salomon (Salo) Landau were brothers. Schia Landau was also born in Nowy Sacz (~1841) and his father was Judah Leib HaLevi Landau. Interestingly, Sophie Wachmann's sister Amalie Wachsmann married Schia's nephew Josef Baruch Landau, which further strengthens the connection to my family.

Thank you again!
