Bohuš Freudenfeld (restored)The youngest son of Wilhelm and Marie (née Bischitzky) Freudenfeld of Brandýs nad Labem. He married Hermine Oesterreicherová on 27 March 1906 at the Hotel Bristol in Prague. Together they had at least four children. Gotthold (German version of the Czech name Bohumil - he was known as Bohuš in the family), Hermine, and three of their children are confirmed to have been lost in the Holocaust, but their son Karel's fate is unknown. The Freudenfelds lived in various places in Prague, most notably in the villa-estate at Podolí 425 - a property which still exists, remarkably in almost the same form, and which Bohuš and Hermine sold to my great-grandfather Rudolf - or rather, he purchased it from them and then let it to them - while they were facing financial difficulties.

The Czech Holocaust archive have put together quite a volume of information on Bohuš - all linked above. The documents include various records related to their residence in Podolí, including a criminal complaint for keeping certain types of farm animals on the property without authorization. Other records - passport applications, probity applications (later than the criminal complaint, of course), and most notably some photographs. The original print of Bohuš's headshot picture is heavily discolored and damaged due to age and poor storage, but I have restored it; both versions are included above and the restored version is also shown on the left of this text. Last residence: Schlözerova 16, Prague.

Freudenfeld, Rudolf (1908) [ b. 4.3.1908, Brandýs nad Labem 199, Bohemia - d. 26.6.1942, Auschwitz, Poland ]
The second son of Gotthold and Hermine (née Oesterreicher) Freudenfeld. There is scant information available on Rudolf, but the Czech Holocaust archive place him in Prague 12 (that's Vinohrady in those days) at the time of his deportation - conceivably at his family's address on Blanická street. It's not clear how or who determined his exact date of death - a precise date of death is quite unusual for victims who perished in Auschwitz. Last residence, probably Blanická 30, Prague.

Freudenfeld, Vilém Gustav [ b. 14.1.1907, Brandýs nad Labem 199, Bohemia - d. 24.8.1944, Sachenhausen (Schwarzheide), Germany ] Vilém Freudenfeld
Vilém Gustav FreudenfeldThe eldest son of Gotthold and Hermine (née Oesterreicher) Freudenfeld. Vilém lived in my great-grandparents' building at Ruská 20/562 in Vršovice until he was deported to Terezín in 1943. He was deported more than a year after the next-closest of kin at that address, my great-grandmother Milada (his auntie), so it is curious that the Klinger family name should be on his deportation card if they had all been taken away so long before. With regard to his life, the Czech Holocaust archive have retained a number of documents relating to supposedly criminal activity regarding the maltreatment of animals by Vilém and/or his family at their Podolí address. Apparently "concerned neighbors" filed several complaints which ultimately led to criminal proceedings against him. We obviously have no idea what the actual circumstances were, because the records show only the complaint side, not the side of the accused. Still, I've included all of those records here (they're all in Czech).

The Czech Holocaust Archive place his death at "Schwarzheide," a reference to a subcamp in the Sachenhausen forced-labor/concentration camp system in Germany. Based on the available data, it would appear that Vilém was sent to Terezín, then to Auschwitz, and finally onto Sachenhausen - likely this included passage through another camp such as Gross-Rosen. It was unusual for one person to survive long enough to go through the concentration camp system like this, but all of my great-uncles (František, Karel (1919), Zdeněk) as well as their uncle Leopold had similar experiences: all were sent to Germany near the end of the war, forced into labor to "support" the last-ditch Nazi war effort. By 1944 even the Germans knew they were going to lose, so the horror, torture, of the concentration camps was only magnified by the futility of forcing these Jews to work themselves to death in service of a lost cause. Of all the victims in my family, these five closely-related men are the only ones who had that kind of multi-camp experience, and all ultimately perished in Germany. Unfortunately the Holocaust archive have attached the wrong picture to his profile page. Last residence: Ruská 20/562, Prague.

Freudenfeld, Wilhelm [ b. 24.12.1830, Brandýs nad Labem?, Bohemia - d. 21.7.1893, Brandýs nad Labem, Bohemia ] Obituary, Prager Tagblatt, 22 July 1893 Danksagung, Prager Tagblatt, 26 July 1893
Wilhelm was the son of, we think, Salomon and Anna (née Krausová) Freudenfeld, of either Brandýs or Lovosice (or both). His lineage isn't exactly clear from the available records: his gravestone appears to say his father was Abraham. If so then there is a familiant Abraham Freudenfeld in Brandýs whose wife was Katharina Porges, but that record suggests the parents' ages better fit Wilhelm's father Salomon. In point of fact there is a Samuel born in 1802 to the couple who could be Wilhelm's father. It's conceivable, and was not unusual at that time, for someone to use Salamon and Samuel interchangeably. The four siblings we know of, including Wilhelm, suggest also that they could be from the Lovosice area in the Sudeten Czech north, but there are no Freudenfelds in the familianten books from the area. So, something of a conundrum. Regardless, in life Wilhelm was an economist. He married Marie Bischitzká apparently in Karlín on 11 January 1853. Together they had at least 8 children, all of whom were born in Brandýs. Sadly two of the children, Josef and Julie, died as children. Wilhelm passed away in Prague from a brain or kidney disorder (hard to discern from the death record - it was one of the two for sure), but was buried in the Brandýs Jewish cemetery.

A daughter of Wilhelm and Marie (née Bischitzky) Freudenfeld of Brandýs nad Labem. Albertine married Max Wilhelm Schiller at the Brandýs Synagogue on New Year's Day 1878. Together they had at least two children, both of whom were lost in the Holocaust. We know the family lived in Prague through 1893, but between then and Albertine's 1933 death they returned to Max's hometown of Lovosice in the Sudeten Czech north.

Freudenfeldová, Emma [ b. 8.5.1875, Brandýs nad Labem 52, Bohemia - d. ? ] Police Conscription Document
The youngest daughter of Wilhelm and Marie (née Bischitzky) Freudenfeld. Emma married Gustav Pick on 24 May 1895 at the Brandýs Synagogue. They appear to have had only two children - both were born in Brandýs, but the family lived in Prague. We have no obituary for Emma under the name Pick, no Holocaust-era records, and no other record or evidence of her death or disposition. Gustav appears to have passed away in 1906, so it's possible Emma remarried and took another surname. There is an Emma Hirsch in the Czech Holocaust archive with the same birthdate, but no documentation which suggests they are one and the same person.

A daughter of Wilhelm and Marie (née Bischitzky) Freudenfeld. Jenny was born Johanna, but as was and is common practice she went by her nickname. She married Alois Lustig in the Brandýs Synagogue on 5 September 1882. Together they had at least five children. There are no death records currently available for 1931 so we don't know her cause of death, and her obituary also gives no indication. She is buried in the Brandýs Jewish Cemetery.

Marie FinkováMarie was the youngest child and only daughter of Gotthold and Hermine (née Oesterreicher) Freudenfeld. Not much information is available on her life. We know she married Karel Fink at some point in the middle-late 1930s. Together they had at least one son, Ivan. Unfortunately we don't know the fate of her husband, but both Marie and her son perished in Auschwitz. Ivan was only 6 years old. Curiously one of the conscription documents mistakenly refers Karel's family as Catholic, but they were definitely Jewish- no question about it. The other emphatically states they were Jewish. I have restored her portrait photograph - shown here and linked above. I've also restored her passport application photo, restored version also linked above (the original is in the passport application, also above). Last residence, Schlözerova 16, with Marie's parents.

The eldest daughter of Wilhelm and Marie (née Bischitzky) of Brandýs nad Labem. Paula married Ludwig Jampehles of Braník on 21 May 1878 at the Brandýs Synagogue. Together they had no fewer than seven children. The family lived in Vinohrady from about 1878 but within a couple of years had moved to Old Town Prague. Unfortunately we have no additional information on Paula's life or disposition.
