The Jewish Family Bachmann of Friesen near Kronach

(Later in Kronach, Amberg, Munich and Switzerland)

The Jewish Family Strauss in New York, Munich, Stuttgart

 

Herbert Bachmann

 

Herbert Bachmann was born in Amberg/Oberpfalz in 1893 as son of David Bachmann of Kronach/Oberfranken and Rachel Strauss of Syracuse/New York1. Herbert Bachmann studied Staatswirtschaft (public or state economy) from 1912/13 to 1918/19 at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich. At this time he lived with his parents at the Häberlstrasse 15/3 in Munich as it is shown in the register of the University2.

 

Herbert Bachmann was a soldier in World War I from 01.12.1916 until 18.11.1918. First he was in the 2. Ersatz-Bataillon of the 4. Feldartillerie-Regiment, then on the 27.04.1917 he was transferred to the 6. Battery of the Reserve-Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 1. On the 04.07.1917 he was rejected from the frontline to the 4. Company of the 3. Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon Augsburg. Finally he was transferred to the Wirtschafts-Kompanie 33 on the 08.07.1918 and to the Zivilverwaltung 6 on the 18.11.19183.

 

In October 1934 he asked for a confirmation of his service in World War I at the Zentralnachweisamt für Kriegerverluste und Kriegergräber, Zweigstelle Munich. This record says that he only was in the theatre of war from 27.04.1917 until 02.07.1917, more exactly in the trench war in Flanders/France. As he only served at the frontline for a short time he had never obtained any promotion or medal or decoration. A directive of the 26.06.1917 said that he should only be employed in the back area3.

 

From 1921 until 1936 Dr. Herbert Bachmann was managing director of some trade associations. 1936 he migrated to Switzerland where he did academic researches and published a book with the title “Wirtschafts-Wille und –Wert” in Bern in 1945. Beginning in the year 1946 he was the secretary of economy- und social politics at the Landesbezirk Bayern of the DGB4. He also worked as editor of the Gewerkschafts-Zeitung (newspaper of the trade/labor union). In the Munich city directories of the years 1953, 1954, 1961 and 1966 he was mentioned as Direktions-Sekretär and he lived at the Prinz-Ludwig-Strasse 14/4 in Munich5.

 

The Stadtarchiv Zurich sent to me three scans of Einwohnerkontrolle-Meldekarten (documents of the inhabitants registry office). They say that Herbert Bachmann lived sometimes in Berlin and sometimes in Zurich between 1936 and 1938. He lived at Kasinostr. 12 and at Plattenstr. 78 (Hottingerhof).6

Samuel Semi Strauss

 

Samuel Strauss was born in Richfield Springs, USA on the 02.06.1875 and he died in Pullach on the 22.06.1939. He was the son of Jakob Strauss, Jeweler in the USA, later trader in Munich, and Lina Weil. Samuel Strauss had one sister, Rachel Bachmann, born in Syracuse/New York on the 23.07.1869 and died in Munich on the 18.08.1940 and one brother, Moritz Strauss, born in Syracuse/New York on the 04.05.1872. Samuel Strauss married Klara Eigner in Mannheim on the 10.04.1913. Klara Eigner was born in Mannheim on the 10.03.1885 and she died in Munich on the 04.05.1939.

 

The information about this marriage can not only be found in the Gedenkbuch of the Jews of Munich but also in the Jewish Standesbücher in the Hauptstaats-Archives in Stuttgart. On the website of the archives you can find the BMD records of the jewish comunities in Württemberg, Baden and Hohen- zollern from the 18th to the 20th century with the ones from Mannheim. Unfortunately you can only find a register list of the marriages of Mannheim, not the entries with the whole amount of info. So I would appreciate it if someone could give me more info about the parents and ancestors of Klara Eigner.

Jacob Straus, Jeweler in Syracuse, New York

 

It is unknown to me where Jacob Straus was born and when he travelled first to the United States. The Census lists say, he was born in Württemberg and his wife was born in Baden (Counties in Germany). At he time of the US-Census of 1860 a Jacob Strous lived in the household of Abraham Stern, jeweler in Syracuse, Onondaga, New York. Abraham Stern and his wife Ricka also came from Württemberg and they had three children: Bella, Rachael and Samuel Stern (who was later an attorney or lawyer).1

 

In the newspapers of Syracuse in the State of New York Jacob Straus is mentioned several times between 1866 and at least 1873.

 

In January 1866 a Co-partnership was announced between Abraham Stern and Jacob Straus, for the purpose of carrying on a general Jewelry business.2 1868 their business location was at 31 East Genesee Street as it is mentioned in the business directory of Onondaga County, where Syracuse is situated. They were importers and dealers in Watches, Jewelry, Silver ware.3

 

Also in 1868 Jacob Straus travelled to Europe for some months and visited Germany. In October he came back to Syracuse with his bride or wife, which is not named in the newspapers. Unfortunately they also mention neither her place of birth nor their place of marriage.4

 

1869 the firm Abraham Stern & Co. moved to a new business location. As the first part of this article is missing, I don’t know their new business address.5 On the census list of 1870 Jakob Straus, his wife Maslina and their daughter Reginal (Rachel) lived in Syracuse, Onondaga, New York.6

 

On February 1873 several newspapers announced the dissolution of the Co-partnership of Abraham Stern and Jacob Straus. Abraham Stern continued to manage the firm at the same business location at South Salina Street, Globe Building in Syracuse.7

 

Jacob Straus started a new business at Church Street in Richfield Springs. An advertise mentions that he now offers a very large stock of Fine Gold and Silver Foreign Watches of his own importation. American Watches, direct from the manufacturers. Jewelry of every description! Solid Silver and Plated Ware spectacles! First Class Jewelry Store, at greatly reduced prices.8

 

On the census list of 1875 Jakob Straus and his family still lived in Richfield Springs, Otsego County, New York. Now they had a daughter Rachel and two sons Moris and Samie. Moris was born in Syracuse, Onondaga in 1872 and Samie was born in Richfield Springs, Otsego County in 1875.9

 

In November 1876 Jacob Straus of the County of Onondaga in the State of New York applied for a passport. He mentioned that he already had obtained a passport on the 6th of March 1868 (but I couldn’t find this passport application). According to the passport application in November 1876 he planned to go abroad with his wife and the three minor children, Rachel (age 7 years), Moriss (age 4 years) and Samuel (age 1 year and 4 months).10
