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 family tree at 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. A birth announcement on 04/02/1882 says that a son had been born to Siegmund Nothmann in Myslowitz.

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 that one of the sources has conflated Hugo and someone else, possibly his cousin namesake.
