Hermann (Zvi) Halberstaedter
His birth in Militsch is deduced from the fact that his father appears to have lived there until at least his early 60s, and is confirmed by his death certificate.
Hermann's son Ernst's marriage certificate states that Ernst was born in Militsch and that Hermann had died in Beuthen before Ernst's marriage (05/04/1892).
Fred Halbers, Hermann's grandson, gives his date of birth as 22/01/1826; however, his death certificate gives his age as 52 years 1 month, indicating a birth date in February 1828.
Hermann is listed in the 1880 Beuthen address book as a restauranteur and house owner living at Gleiwitzerstrasse 40 (now demolished to make way for the Agora Bytom shopping mall).
His grave stone stands in the Jewish cemetery on Piekarska, Beuthen. Although the German inscription is badly weathered, Hermann's name can be made out and the cemetery's register confirms that it is that of Hermann. The Hebrew inscription names him Zvi Halberstadter and his father Eliezer.
