I have equated Alexander (named on his birth and death certificates) with Alfred, named in other records. This is supported by the fact that the 1939 census for Breslau shows Alfred with the same date and place of birth as Alexander living with Fanny Gassmann geb. Markus who is identified as Alexander's wife on his death certificate.

Named as a brother of Max Gassmann, he served in WWI, was married and lived in Breslau.

A 1903 register lists an Alfred Gassmann, Commis. living at Ritterplatz 3.

Alfred Gassmann, businessman, born 24/04/1877 lived in Breslau at Nachodstrasse 13 in ca 1930 with his wife Fanny geb. Markus born 24/10/1879 and presumably their son Johannes born 15/05/1906. Alfred and Fanny Gassmann are buried in Cosel Jewish cemetery, Breslau, field woa, number 20.

His death certificate names his parents and wife and gives the same date of birth as the ca 1930 address list.

Both his and Fanni's death certificates call him Alexander.

Died in the Jewish Hospital, Breslau.
