This handsome man is Emil Gross (II). He was my Grand Father i never got a chance to meet. Son of Emil Gross (I) & Marie Rožumberská.

Emil Gross (II) was born in Prague on February 10th, 1903 as a 3rd child of 4. In his young age, he used to live in Nikolajka Street, Prague. My Mother gave me a lot of his father’s Post Cards from his best friend , addressed to Nikolajka Street. This is one of those Post Cards :

Post Card Emil Gross 13 - 14.3.19

 

As i never got a chance to meet him, his Pictures and those Post Cards are a special way i can feel close to him. I cherished them so much. And some times i think, how nice it is that his descendants can actually hold his Post Cards. What will our descendants keep of us in this digital era ?

Emil Gross (II) was married to Věra Hamšiková on December 20th, 1946. My Mother gave me her parents Marriage Certificate :

Emil Gross (I) was born in Prague, April 7th 1871. He was my Great grand Father. Here is his birth Record. He had Circumcision ceremony on April 14th, 1871.

My Mother always told me that Emil Gross (I) was raised in a Catholic Orphanage, and didn’t knew he was a Jew until some SS officers found his records and told him before WW2, just before the Holocaust tragedy. He was lucky that he was married with my Great Grand Mother who was a Catholic Czech. So he was not transported to Terezin, although he still had to use that Yellow Star on his clothes, and treated just like any other Jewish at that time.

The mystery about -why he was raised in a Catholic Orphanage- was answered when i found his mother’s Death Record here. She passed away because of Typhus in Humpolec on February 16th 1875, when Emil Gross (I) was only 4 years old. So, i assume that Adolf couldn’t took care of Emil Gross (I) and put him to the Orphanage.
