Bernard is the only heretofore confirmed child of Friedmann and Anna (née Mautner) Lustig. Of the possible siblings - four in total - Bernard may have been the oldest. Unfortunately we know only Bernard's most essential biographical information and thus have no real, detailed picture of his life. We know he married Rosalia Stepperová in Kolín (her hometown) on 3 May 1848. They had at least 8 children, all of whom were born in Prague. Bernard died at home from marasmus and emphysema.

Filip was the eldest of at least 8 children born to Bernard and Rosalia (née Stepper) Lustig. In life he was a businessman. Note the spelling of his first name is inconsistent across the various records - I've settled on this spelling. The available conscription records suggest he was from Zvěstov (as with other immediate family members), but his birth record clearly says he was born in Old Town Prague. He married Johanna Kaudersová at the "New" Synagogue in Prague on 16 November 1879. Together they had at least seven children. Filip died at home at 1:30pm from a cranial haemorrhage.

Lustig, Friedmann [ b. c. 1754-64, Zveštov?, Bohemia - d. 14.8.1818 or 11.4.1839, Kunratice (Prague) ]
Friedmann is the earliest-known member of this branch of the Lustig family tree. The records, as one might expect, are not especially conclusive - murky records is a challenge researchers often face for Jews born before about 1780 in Hapsburg central Europe. The first name of Friedmann is notable for its rarity, but of course there is another contemporary Friedmann Lustig who lived in the same area as our Friedmann - Kunratice, now incorporated into southern Prague. It's probable that they were cousins or other relatives. Unfortunately we cannot always distinguish between the two, and supporting records (marriage and other registers) either lack detail or simply aren't available. What we know about the two Friedmanns: One was born around 1754 and died 14 August 1818 in Kunratice, from a lung condition. The registry that contains his death record has an adjacent entry for a Maria "Lustik," widow of Friedmann - she died 4 October 1836 at about age 77. This is probably Maria née Stein who appears in the birth records for several Lustig children in the local Jewish registries. Whether she was attached to our Friedmann is unknown. The second Friedmann, who I believe is ours, died 11 April 1839 (cause of death unclear) at 75 years old, making his date of birth around 1764. The death record states he was a "Brandweinpächter aus Kundratitz." It's worth noting that there are other key family connections between Friedmann's family and the local Klinger and Rezek families which make this a compelling and integral part of the family tree.

I found one familiant record in the Zveštov books for a Friedmann Lustig, but that record gives his wife as Sara née Metzl. No help there. This raises the possibility of either a third Friedmann Lustig or another (earlier?) marriage for one of the above mentioned Friedmanns.

What we know for sure, from multiple records, is that our Friedmann was married to Anna née Mautner. Besides Bernard, who we have conclusively attached to this family, are a number of likely children with these parents: Jakob, Ludmilla, Theresia, Josef, Daila (apparently the correct name - a male child), and Franziska. Bernard and Jakob were either twins or born successively in the shortest-possible period of time. Children of Friedmann and Marie Stein are: Joachim, Joseph, Elisabetha, and Michael. I have no death record for Anna.

Without further supporting source material most of these connections will remain tentative. Assuming our Friedmann married twice - to Marie Stein and Anna Mautner, a possibility the dates seem to support - I've included the likely connections. I realize there are two Josefs listed - one of them certainly died as a child, so another child given the same name is also possible. We see this circumstance from time to time.

Hugo Lustig (1899) (Restored)The youngest of 7 children belonging to Filip and Johanna (née Kaudersová) Lustig . Hugo married Grete Weissová probably in the mid-1920s, and they may have had a daughter Olga - probable, not certain - who lived in Časlav, but was deported from her parents' home in Prague some half a year after they were. All were lost in the Shoah. Hugo and Grete's nephew Arie - meaning at least one family member survived the Holocaust - submitted a Page of Testimony to Yad Vashem for each of them in May, 1986. The Czech Holocaust archive have collected and published a number of documents related to Hugo's life - almost all are his various passport applications, but the lot includes a residency permit application, a fee guarantee telegram apparently for a trip on a Cunard vessel, and a driver's license or driver's test application. Best of all the archive have included several photographs which span his adult years, from Hugo as a 20-year old, to his final picture as an around-40-year old. The latter I have restored and presented on the left. It's also linked above along with all of the aforementioned records. The original version of the photo is included in the residency permit application. Last residence, Kozí 13, Prague.

Samuel was one of at least 8 children born to Bernard and Rosalia (née Stepper) Lustig. His parents were probably from the Zvěstov area, as noted on the police conscription records. The census record adds that he was from Prague but lived in Zvěstov c. 1889 - perhaps until his first marriage. No Jewish registries from Zvestov are currently available. In life Samuel was a tradesman or businessman of some kind. He married Karoline Rezková in Prague on 17 February 1889. Together they had three children, and remained together until her untimely passing in 1901. He remarried to Henriette Krauskopfová in Klatovy on 14 September 1902, and had at least one son with her - František. According to his death record, Samuel died from a range of causes - arteriosclerosis, emphysema, diabetes, myocarditis, and paralysis cordis.

Sigmund was one of at least 8 children born to Bernard and Rosalia (née Stepper) Lustig. His birth record says he was sixth-born, but we have identified only five births to that point, including his. Like others in his immediate family, the available police conscription records suggest he was from Zvěstov, although we know he was born in Prague. In life Sigmund was an accountant, apparently having worked for the firm Českomoravská-Kolben-Daněk in a senior position; that firm was founded through the merger of two other companies the year before Sigmund died. They were vehicle manufacturers. He married Helene Fišlová between 1889 and 1899 - I have not yet located their marriage record, so there is no date certain. It appears they had no children. Prior to his marriage he lived in Old Town Prague, but after it appears they lived together in Karlín. I don't have his record of death, but we know he was creamted at Olšany - an extremely rare disposition for a Jew.

Lustigová, Cäcilie [ b. 4.3.1852, Staré Město 760 (Prague) - d. ? ] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document
Cäcilie was the second of at least 8 children born to Bernard and Rosalia (née Stepper) Lustig. She married Moritz Schifferes (sometimes spelled Schiffres) at the Klausen Synagogue in Prague on 24 June 1871. I've identified three of their children, but there is a six-year gap between their second- and third-born as I've recorded them, so it's probable the couple had more than three. From the available records we know the couple lived in both Smichov and Old Town Prague - their last certain address was in Old Town, dated 1888. Following that they seem to have disappeared from the local records- this suggests they emigrated elsewhere, although I have not located any definitive information that serves this conclusion.. One of the police conscription records seems to suggest they moved to Vienna. If so, then there are some records which could be a fit - they include marriage of their daughter Gisela to a Richard Halberstadt, with whom she had at least three children. There is also a possibility that Malvine married Adolf Ambor (their surname name changed from Amber to Ambor in 1908), with whom she had at least five children.

Lustigová, Ida (1867) [ b. 8.11.1867, Josefov 164 (Prague) - d. ? ]
Ida is the youngest known the 8 known children of Bernard and Rosalia (née Stepper) Lustig. The only information on her life concerns her marriages to two brothers of the Adolf Spitz family. Her first marriage was to Paul Friedrich Spitz - unknown date and location, but probably in Prague. He passed away in January 1897. On 19 December of that year she married Paul's younger brother Ludwig in Prague. There are no known offspring from either marriage. Her place and date of death are also unknown, although it is clear she passed away before Ludwig.

Lustigová, Josefine [ b. 28.11.1891, Smichov 223 (Prague) - d. 1942, Poland ]
Josefine was the youngest daughter of Filip and Johanna (née Kaudersová) Lustig. She married Ervín Lornek (surname changed from Löwenthal) at the Hotel Bristol in Prague on 12 March 1922. Together they had at least one son. The entire family perished in the Holocaust. They were sent to Lublin from Terezín, but their final destination isn't clear - it could be any of Bełżec, Sobibór, or Majdanek. Last residence, Dušní 14, Prague.
