About Max Mendel Feilchenfeld

Max Feilchenfeld (* 1852, † June 27, 1922 in Vienna) was a banker of the Austrian monarchy.

Feilchenfeld initiated in the 1890s the Bohemian Escompte Bank and committed them to the Karl Wittgenstein's side in the steel industry. After the Lower Austrian Escompte company had taken over the Bohemian Bank, Feilchenfeld was head of the former and wont continue the alliance with Karl Wittgenstein Iron Industrial Company Prague. Feilchenfeld was 1913-1915 on the site of the former Hofkriegsratsgebäudes a new headquarters of the banking institution building (at court No. 2). He was also active as a builder privately (eg the establishing of a mighty Villa in St Gilgen am Wolfgangsee). The obituary of the Director General of the Steyr-Werke, then still Austrian Arms Factory society, Georg Günther (in: Neue Freie Presse of 28 June 1922) boasts Feilchenfelds kindness, humanity, his humor and his sunny nature.

As to his humor and sunny nature, have a look at him in his son Franz's wedding photo! His grandchildren, grandnieces and nephews said in 1987 that he had parties every weekend when he was in St. Gilgen, where he entertained the well-to-do Christians and Jews. Paul Heinegg
