Notes

His son Albert Danziger's death certificate names his father as Jakob and says that he was a Conditorei owner and that he died in Myslowitz. A Jacob Danziger, Conditor of Myslowitz is listed in Schlesischer Musenalmanach.

His gravestone, discovered in Myslowitz Jewish cemetery in late 2013 by Malgorzata Ploszaj, names his father as YTZHK ( = Isaac) and gives dates in Hebrew and German scripts as:
• born 5554 ( = 1793-94)
• died 6 Shevat 5632 ( = 16/01/1872).

Despite having a biblical name (Jacob) in the vernacular German, his gravestone gives his name in Hebrew as YCHZKL ( = Ezekiel, Yechezkel in Hebrew).

The registration of his death uses his abbreviated Hebrew name, Haskel, confirms his occupation as Konditor and his date of death as 16/01/1872 and gives his age as 78 years.
