 3  Lotte 1902/3-1970/72 (married ?)

Julius Hostovsky, born 31st July 1870 and was married to Ida. Born in Radnitz on 12th August 1875. Divorced about 1911. Their 3 small children were brought up by their mother with the two sons making first contact with their father in Prague when they were already adults. They never knew if their father had relatives or other siblings. He was a late child and had a sister who was about 18 to 20 years older than he was and he hardly knew her. When very young, she married a man from Vienna named Kreisky. She became the grandmother of the Austrian Prime Minister, Bruno Kreisky. It appears that there was no relationship with the family at this point in time.

The children of Julius and Ida:

Alfred, born 1898, was murdered in Dachau or Buchenwald in the last days of the war!!! His wife Grete, from Vienna, died in Libere about 1965. She had no children!

My husband, Wilhelm (Vilem) Hostovsky, born 23rd February 1900, died 30th January 1987. We met in Terezin (Theresienstadt Concentration Camp). He was deported to Ausschwitz, and freed himself in January 1945 and went immediately after the end of the war back to Prague to find me alive, living in Terezin and we were married there in June. We were also childless!

Lotte MR. born 1902/03, married, separated, died also in Liberec (Reichenberg) about 1970/72 also childless. So, I am the only one remaining with this name. I (Ruth Hostovsky) was born on 27th June 1906 in Berlin, therefore I was born German.
