||Michael, who was not German, traveled around to find a wife and found Rosi in Osnabruck. Rosi's family sugested that he become German, which he did. Then he was looking for a location to open a business and was told that Strassburg is a good location to start a business, so he went there. The location of the factory was on the outside of the city, but now it is inside the city. Apparently he was a very enterprising man.|
Started the bag business in Strasbourg. Moritz Klein, his brother, joined him as a partner. Died on the battlefield in Poland as a German soldier.
The advent of war in 1914 marked a particular tragic event for the Jewish inhabitants of Alsace-Lorraine. As German subjects..they ran the danger of shooting their kin the trenches before them.
Rather than open the door to betrayal by pitting Reichsland soldiers against friends and relatives in France, the German government generally sent them either to the German interior or, more often, to the eastern front. [1, 2]
