Sources differ regarding his place of birth: Yad Vashem says Gruessau, his death certificate shows Gleiwitz and agrees. As his older and younger siblings Richard (born 1863) and Klara (born 1860) were both born in Gleiwitz this seems the more likely to be correct.

Ludwig and Johanna are listed in the 1939 census of Breslau at Charlottenstrasse 24.

Transported on 26/07/1942 from Breslau to Theresienstadt where he died.
