The Family of Simon (Seligmann) & Rees Sachs of Berkach & Themar

The family of Simon & Rees Sachs is another of the great-grandparent families of the Jewish community of Themar. With this family, we can trace its roots back to the last half of the eighteenth century.

As the Nachkommenliste/Descendants List below makes clear, there are close linkages between the gran- and great-gran parental families of the Jewish community of Themar. The families of Simon Sachs, b. 1826, and Heinemann Sachs are also to be found on the Nachkommenliste for Hirsch & Rosa Friedmann family. We then find another Sachs family who played significant roles in Themar: Otto Sachs, b. 1837, whose marriage in May 1863 to Babette Schloss probably brought him to Themar where they formed a family and lived and worked in the northern part of the Bahnhofstrasse.

Once again, we owe a huge THANK YOU! to family members whose decades of research allow us to see the larger familial context within which the Jewish families in Themar lived.

Nachkommenliste are always a work in progress. Any contributions, comments, and/or corrections are welcome.

The names included in the Nachkommenliste are those of family members born in Germany or occupied Europe before 1945.
