About Eduard (Ede) Spitzer

Ede Špicer owned a cement factory in Beočin, Vojvodina (now in Serbia; on the Danube). The family built a castle in Beočin in 1892, now one of the oldest cultural monuments in Beočin and under the protection of state. Among not so many castles in Vojvodina, this one stands out, according to the opinion of professional public, as a unique example of secessionism, the then-prevailing style in European architecture. According to experts it belongs to ornate architecture, from which the famous fireplace, vitraz and ceramics must be pointed out. According to the decision of the Government of Serbia, the old castle in Beočin was made a cultural monument. The only thing that was renovated was the roof. Everything else is in bad condition. This building has always represented the attraction and the pride of Beočin. Today this is not the case. The older citizens of Beočin once called the entire complex “Špicer Garden”. There was a well-planned fenced park with the castle, where deer and peacocks would walk freely. (THE CASTLE OF SPITZER FAMILY – BEOČIN)

The Špicer family lived in the castle until the beginning of World War II [when] Beočin went to Germany, where their descendants still live. During the war the castle was the seat of the German command, and after the war it was a school and a library, a cultural center, a handball club and finally a restaurant. Then the castle is completely abandoned, as it is today. Špicer Castle is located in the city named Beočin located on the slopes of Fruska Gora. It was built in the late 19th century and is one of the rare examples of eclectic architecture of the period. (Ahnenforschung.net)
