Klauber, Erwin (1882) [ b. 4.12.1882, Řipská 1114/5, Vinohrady (Prague), Bohemia? - d. ? ]

Erwin was the eldest son of Hermann and Johanna (née Pitzkerová) Klauber. In life he was a medical doctor. He was also a convert to Catholicism, perhaps in order to wed a non-Jew: he married Anna Tkáčová in České Budějovice on 7 July 1922. Shocklingly Anna passed away only three days after their wedding. There's no indication or information as to whether he remarried, or what happened to him.

Klauber, Hermann [ b. 7.3.1857, Častonice, Bohemia? - d. ? ] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document
Hermann was one of five known children of Jakob and Alžběta (also née Klauber, no apparent relation) Klauber. There is some question about his birthdate and birthplace - the census record gives the 7 March date, but the Sušice Jewish register says he was born on 6 March in what appears to be "Czastonitz" - that is, Častonice - a hamlet about 5km SSE of Velhartice. He married Johanna Pitzkerová at the Smichov Synagogue in Prague on 18 September 1881. Together they had at least the three children listed here, and possibly more. From the available records it appears the family lived in Český Krumlov circa 1920s, before returning to Prague. From the available records it's not clear what his profession was - the census record says "Kupec" in Czech which means buyer or purchaser. We're also missing information concerning his death.

Klauber, Ignatz [ b. 18.5.1860, Velhartice area, Bohemia? - d. 5.12.1926, Habry, Bohemia ] Obituary, Prager Tagblatt, 7 December 1926
Ignatz was the youngest son of five known children of Jakob and Alžběta (also née Klauber, no apparent relation) Klauber, and was an attorney based in Habry. Unfortunately we don't have a birth record for him, so I've pieced together the connections from other records - I've presented that information here non-contiguously, but appropriately. The 1903 birth reco;rd for his daughter Hedvika says he was born in Habry, although that is probably not correct. Most likely he was born in the Velhartice area, like all of his siblings. From what we can tell Ignatz married twice - to Anna Kohn on 25 December 1895, and then Ida Kohn. Anna passed away in 1905. It's not clear if Anna and Ida were related. While it seems unlikely that Ignatz and Anna had only two children due to 7 years passing between the birth of their first daughter Elsa and Hedvika's arrival, Anna's obituary refers to a daughter in the singular. Accordingly Hedvika's birth record explicitly lists her as second-born.

With respect to their surviving daughter Elsa, we have more direct sources of information. It appears that she married her first cousin Pavel, the son of Ignatz's brother Hermann. Their marriage is dated 23 September 1919 at the Hotel Palace in Prague, but curiously it's recorded in the Habry Jewish records. The marriage record further states that they lived in Vienna. The record reports Elsa's age as 23, and her place of birth listed is as Pelhřimov (not so far from Habry).

Klauber, Otto (1885) [ b. 26.4.1885, Manesová 1178/49, Vinohrady (Prague) - d. c. 1942, Unknown/Poland ] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document
Otto was the son of Hermann and Johanna (née Pitzkerová) Klauber of Velhartice. He was born in Prague, the middle of three boys. Otto was a businessman of some kind and married Johanna Günstlingová, the sister of my grandfather Otto, at the Vinohrady Synagogue on 18 December 1910. The family appear to have lived in Vienna c. 1919, but they later returned to Prague, where they stayed until the Germans deported them to the camps. Otto, Johanna, and their daughter Herta were all killed in the Holocaust; as you can see from the Czech Holocaust archive record, their final destination and place of death are unknown ("neznámé místo" means "unknown place"). I filed a tracing case with the ITS, but no additional information came from that request. Last residence, Mánesova 30, Prague.

Klauber, Pavel [ b. 2.1.1887, Vinohrady 1184 (Prague), Bohemia - d. 3.4.1939, Vienna, Austria ? ]
Pavel (perhaps he also used Paul) was the youngest son of Hermann and Johanna (née Pitzkerová) Klauber. He was born in Vinohrady but lived and worked in Vienna, as a bank officer. The Vinohrady 1184 building is on the corner of Blanická and Polská streets, so it has two possible addresses. There are at least two marriage records for their 23 June 1919 marriage at the Hotel Palace in prague - one in the Prague Jewish registers, and one in the Habry registers. Both records show his wife was Elsa Klauberová, who turns out to be his first cousin, daughter of his father's brother Ignatz. They don't appear to have had any children, but due to the year the records may simply not yet be available online. It appears that he died in Vienna in 1939, and is buried in the Vienna Central Cemetery. Curious that there would be a Jewish burial in Vienna in 1939, in the year following the Anschluß.

Klauber, Samuel [ b. 29.8.1852, Janovice (Sušice), Bohemia ? - d. ? ] 1900 New York census 1905 New York census 1910 New York census 1908 Passport Application 1922 Passport Application
Samuel was the second son of Jakob and Alžběta (also née Klauber, no apparent relation) Klauber. From the birth record it looks, in poor handwriting, like he was born in the hamlet of Janovice, about 15km as the crow flies from Velhartice. Evidently he immigrated to the U.S. at about 19 years of age. He married Amalie Born in 1883 and they had at least two sons. The family are listed in various records including the 1900, 1905, and 1910 censuses for New York , linked above. The same documents report he was a "Salesman, dry goods." We know from his mother's obituary that Samuel lived in New York, and that his wife was Amalie Born from Germany, so the census document is for sure representative of the couple and their family. Curiously the 1905 census record lists Arthur as Otto. We know from various passenger manifests that Samuel traveled somewhat regularly to and from the Old Country - 1903, 1906, 1909, 1910, and 1922 (but perhaps neither in 1896 or 1915 to attend to his parents at their deaths). In the same U.S. records there are two possible dates of death for Samuel - 1926 and 1948. The former is more likely of course, and that record indicates he was buried in the Linden Hill Jewish Cemetery; the other doesn't specifically state the religious affiliation of the cemetery.

Klauber, Wilhelm [ b. 31.12.1843, Milínov 8 (Velhartice), Bohemia - d. 8.6.1913, Protivín, Bohemia ] Obituary, Prager Tagblatt, 9 June 1913
Wilhelm was the eldest son of Jakob and Alžběta (also née Klauber, no apparent relation) Klauber. He married Wilhelmine Weilová on 27 May 1871 in Vodňany, where they apparently lived the remainder of their lives. They were by far the most prolific of his siblings, producing an impressive eleven children. During his working years Wilhelm was a businessman or merchant of some kind, apparently based in Vodňany or nearby Protivín. It's worth mentioning that a birth record in the Sušice Jewish registers matching his age and lineage lists the child with the first name "Wolf," which is him - this is confirmed by the expected birth records of his siblings which show identical lineage.

Herta was the only child of of Otto and Johanna (née Günstlingová) Klauber, and my father's only known first cousin. She perished in the Holocaust as did her parents. Last residence, Mánesova 30, Prague.
