Notes

His marriage certificate gives places his birth in Myslowitz on 31/01/1882 and names his wife as Auguste Goldschmidt, but does not menton his parents. One of the witnesses was Anna Guttmann geb. Nothmann, a daughter of Siegmund Nothmann and Linna Kuznitzky. A birth announcement on 04/02/1882 says that a son had been born to Siegmund Nothmann in Myslowitz.

A ca 1930 Breslau address list includes the same couple at Hohenzollenstrasse 78 and gives his occupation as Rechtsanwalt (lawyer). A 1918 newspaper article also mentions a Breslau Rechtsanwalt named Hugo Nothmann.

A family tree at jewishgen.org also gives his date of birth as 31/01/1882 and identifies his wife as Auguste Goldschmidt, and additionally names his parents as Sigmund Nothmann and Lina Kusnitzky and says he died in Jerusalem.



Sonja Delander says that he was a leading Berlin paediatrician in the 1920s and early 1930s and went on to be a psychiatrist in Jerusalem.

The conflicting professions and locations suggest a conflation of this Hugo and someone else, possibly his cousin namesake.
