The last Haase to own the "F. Haase" leather factory in Rybnik. The family is reported to have sold the business to the Źurek brothers in 1921 and moved to Germany (Dr F Kassel says Berlin where he was a Patentanwalt - patent attorney), probably to escape the violence between Poles and Germans which claimed the life of their son Rudolf.
