Pathway to Vienna
During the 19th century, Jewish tradesmen gradually moved from Moravian towns to small villages in Nieder Österreich along the route from Znaim to Vienna. For example ... Similarly, one can find several Jewish kaufmänner (shopkeepers) from Nikolsburg who lived in Lower Austria: Bernard Neuspiel in Nappersdorf, Alois Pisk in Ollersdorf, Herman Wengraf in Laa, and Ignatz Wengraf in Neulengbach.
Jews who moved from Moravian Jewish quarters to Lower Austria adopted a different housing pattern scattered among their non-Jewish neighbors. In the small villages of Lower Austria, Jewish tradesmen usually traded in several agricultural products and /or ran small stores.
- Presumably died in Ollersdorf area (no record yet traced) after Jan 1931:
