Ballenberger, Leopold [ b. 28.8.1858, Braník (Prague) - d. 1.10.1915, Smichov (Prague) ]
Leopold's lineage is currently indeterminate from the available records. It's almost certain his father was Moritz Ballenberger, based on Moritz's obituary, and mother Ludmilla née Katzová, as noted on the census record for Leopold's ostensible brother Josef. Even the birth records for Leopold's children don't mention his parents or give any witnesses. What we know: Leopold owned or was attached to various endeavors - real estate and book printing to name two - and was the deputy chairman of the Board of Book Printers and Writers in Prague. Leopold was also a member of the Smichov City Council. He married Hermine Lustigová, date unknown - curiously his son Karel's birth record appears to give a marriage date of 24 May 1904, which is definitely wrong. Leopold's death record says he was married in 1894, which is what we'd expect. There are a fair few other Ballenbergers from or at least living in Smichov, including, apparently, Leopold's siblings - Eduard, Josef, Anna, Klara, and Sofie - and their families. Leopold appears to have died after a long battle with kidney cancer.

Ballenberger, Zdenko [ b. 23.3.1896, Smichov 749 (Prague) - d. 23.2.1943, Łódź Ghetto, Poland ] Passport Application (1 of 2) Passport Application (2 of 2)
Zdenko, or Zdeněk as he's listed in some records (both are variations on a name), was one of three known children born to Leopold and Hermine (née Lustigová) Ballenberger. According to his passport application, linked above, he was a "majitel knihtiskárny" - a book shop owner. Hardly surprising as one of his father's occpations included book printing. I have not located a marriage record for Zdenko and his wife Josefa, but that's not surprising. His wife Josefa's maiden name was "Soukup" which is a common Czech surname - definitely not a Jewish one. In general we would not expect to see a mixed marriage in the Jewish registries, but such marriages were recorded on occasion, with explicit notation of same. Josefa was some ten years his senior. From the passport application is appears they were married in 1925. While in the Łódź Ghetto, Zdenko moved from one "flat" to another on 31 May 1942. He ultimately expired in the Ghetto hospital, from malnutrition. Last residence, Provaznická 11, Prague.

František Freund (1871) - restoredFrantišek is one of apparently nine children of Abraham and Karolina (née Lustig) Freund of Zbraslavice. In life he was a farmer like his father, at least in his early to middle life, and later became a businessman. František and Olga were married on 1 May 1905, probably in Zbraslavice. Together they had at least four children. The family remained in Zbraslavice at least until 1912, after which they moved to Prague. , Olga, Hanuš, and Zdeněk were all killed in the Holocaust. We don't yet know what happened to Marie, Adolfina, and Františka, but Otto seems to have passed away as a child or young man. The Czech Holocaust archive have published a number of documents concerning František, including two pictures. All are linked above. One of the pictures is damaged beyond repair, but the other required relatively minor restoration, which I've done - presented on the left. Note that his brother Julius was married to Kamilla Lustig - the sister of Frantisek's wife Olga. Last residence, Sudoměřická 19, Prague.

Hanuš Freund - restoredHanuš was the eldest son and second child of František and Olga (née Lustigová) Freund. In his young life he was a businessman. He married Getrude Weissensteinová, probably in 1933 in Prague. Together they appear to have had just one son before the onset of the war. All perished in Treblinka. The Czech Holocaust archive have collected several documents pertinent to Hanuš and his family, including a photograph which I have restored - linked above and shown on the left. The original version is contained in his passport application, also linked above. Last residence, Bělského třída 52, Prague.

Zdeněk Freund - restoredZdeněk was the youngest son of František and Olga (née Lustigová) Freund. Like his father and brother he was a private businessman - in what areas is not clear. It appears that he never married. Also like his immediate and extended family members he was deported to Terezín by the Germans. Ultimately he perished in Auschwitz. The Czech Holocaust archive have collected Zdeněk's driving test document and a passport application, the latter of which includes his photograph. The photograph was damaged by time and poor storage so I have restored it, as shown on the left. The original is in the passport application record, linked above. Last residence, Sudoměřická 19, with his parents.

Glaser, Pavel [ b. 15.9.1925, Prague, Bohemia - d. 1943, Auschwitz, Poland ]
Pavel was apparently the only child of Robert and Irma (née Lustigová) Glaser. Unfortunately we have no information on his short life, except that we know his fate. He perished in Auschwitz with his parents, scarcely a week before his 18th birthday. Last residence, V Olšinách 1330, Prague, with his parents.

Glaser, Robert [ b. 28.5.1886, Lenešice, Bohemia - d. 1943, Auschwitz, Poland ] Police Conscription Document
Robert was a son of Bedřich and Johanna (née Getreuerová) Glaser, evidently of Lenešice, which is just outside of Louny. It's clear that by 1910 at latest Robert had moved to Prague and was still single. He was some kind of private official - whether for a personal business or some other organization is unclear. It's also unclear when he and Irma Lustigová married. If their son Pavel is an only child, then their marriage was likely in the early to mid-1920s, probably also in Prague. The entire family perished at Auschwitz, but remained together until the end. Last residence, V Olšinách 1330, Prague.

Kleiner, Gottlieb [ b. 7.5.1882, Kouřím 26, Bohemia - d. 9.3.1936, ul. U Nemocnice 499, Prague, Bohemia ]
Gottlieb (Bohumil in Czech) was the youngest of three known children belonging to Karl and Eleonore (née Lustigová) Kleiner. His Hebrew name was Avraham. He married Paulina Karpelesová at the Hotel Golden Engel in Prague on 10 March 1912, but they were divorced by 1919. It appears they had no children. The marriage record suggests he was from Chocenice near Plzeň, but it's not clear what his connection to the area was. We know that Gottlieb served on active duty in Russia during the Great War, and that he ulimately was captured & held as a prisoner of war. Gottlieb died at a hospital in Vinohrady, a hospital which is still there in the exact same place, from acute thrombosis of the coronary artery, and from myomalacia cordis - softening of the heart muscle. The record of death suggests he was a pensioner at the time of his death, even though he was only 54 years old, and that his home address was Kanálská 1559/5 (also still there, as U Kanálky 1559/5) in Vinohrady.

Kleiner, Karl [ b. 6.6.1847, Břežany 36, Bohemia - d. ? ]
Karl was one of an unknown number of children of Josef and Elisabeth (née Freundová) Kleiner. Karl married Eleonore née Lustigová c.1874, probably in either of their hometowns. To date we have identified three of their children. There are significant gaps in coverage in the available area registries, so to date I have seen no record of marriage for the couple, or a record of death for Karl in any of the Břežany-area books, or the Prague, Kolín, or Plaňany books. Additionally I don't see any records in other burial registries, and most likely he did not live long enough to witness the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. Karl may have had siblings Anna born in 1842, and Gottlieb born in 1844. The Plaňany Jewish registers have a number of other Kleiners of possible relation; it's likely that other individuals in the same geographical area with this surname are blood relatives.

Kleiner, Rudolf [ b. 18.11.1875, Kouřím 26, Bohemia - d. 4.3.1918, Zbyslav (Časlav), Bohemia ] Obituary, Prager Tagblatt, 5 March 1918
Rudolf was the eldest of three known children belonging to Karl and Eleonore (née Lustigová) Kleiner. In life he was a businessman and/or economist. He married Anna Pacovská (the sister of Rudolf's sister Klara's husband Adolf) on 3 September 1901 at the Hotel Bristol in Prague. To date we have identified only one child of the couple, named presumably for his father - based on this we have to assume his father passed away before the 1904 birth of Rudolf's son. Rudolf passed away apparently at home in Zbyslav, but appears to have been buried in the Časlav Jewish cemetery. He was survived by his wife, who later remarried to Hermann Fried. She ultimately perished in the Łódź Ghetto. The fate of their son is unknown. Curiously there is an Emil Roubitschek listed as a sibling (rather than an in-law) in Rudolf's obituary. I have no explanation for this, and it doesn't look like a mistake. Perhaps Rudolf's parents were foster parents for Emil, but it's impossible to say. Additionally, the obituary does not make mention of any children, and absent is any mention of Rudolf as a father - this suggests their son passed away as a child.

Kleinerová, Klara [ b. 6.9.1879, Kouřím 26, Bohemia - d. 4.3.1918, Zbyslav (Časlav), Bohemia ]
Klara was the only daughter among three known children of Karl and Eleonore (née Lustigová) Kleiner. She married Adolf Pacovský (the brother of Klara's brother Rudolf's wife Anna Pacovská) at the Hotel Robitschek in Prague on 11 October 1899. To date I have identified two of the couple's children. While Klara's huband perished at Treblinka, her own fate and those of their two children are unknown. It's worth noting there is an Anna Vymolová in the Czech Holocaust archive with the same birthdate as her daughter, but this is hardly conclusive. Vymol is also not a Jewish name, suggesting that particular Anna was in a mixed marriage.

Löwit, Karl [ b. 17.10.1867, Kovanice (Nymburk), Bohemia - d. 18.12.1931, Vinohrady (Prague) ] Obituary, Prager Tagblatt, 20 December 1931
Karl was one of at least two children of Joachim and Julie (née Lagusová) Löwit. He was a farmer or tenant farmer for the bulk of his life. He married Olga Lustigová on 1 September 1895 at the Hotel Engelhof in Prague. Together they had at least three children. From Karl's 1931 obituary it's clear all three children had married and started families of their own. Although he passed away in Vinohrady, I have seen only one appearance of his family in the Prague-area Jewish registers - that is, the one record for his marriage. Prior to his late-in-life move to Vinohrady, Kovanice is an obvious possible location for the family, or Plaňany, Český Brod, Přistoupim, or somewhere either of their parents' families had previously settled. Not all of the Jewish registers in the years of interest are available from many of those locations.

Gertrude FreundováGertruda was one of an unknown number of children of Oskar and Gisela (née Engelmannová) Weissenstein. She married Hanuš Freund, probably in 1933 in Prague. Together they appear to have had just one son before the onset of the war. All perished in Treblinka. The Czech Holocaust archive have collected several documents pertinent to Gertruda, including a pair of photographs which go with her passport applications. Neither is in especially good shape, but in my opinion no amount of attempts to restore the clarity of the images will yield substantially better pictures, so I've left them as-is. Last residence, Bělského třída 52, Prague.
