About Fritz Salomon Lachmann

Fritz Salomon Lachmann is my 2nd cousin 4x removed, meaning he was my great grandmother Rosi's 2nd cousin. He lived in Berlin, as did she and a great number of her Lachmann cousins.

Fritz was born in Berlin on 26 May 1894 to my 2x great grandmother Henriette's first cousin, Leopold Lachmann and his wife Rike Löwendorff. He was the 2nd cousin, once removed of Paul Lachmann listed above.

I don't have a lot to go by other than his death certificate and the amazing book that lists all the Jews who died fighting for Germany in WWI: Die jüdischen Gefallenen des deutschen Heeres, der deutschen Marine und Schutztruppen, 1914-1918

Those sources say that he was a Grenadier in the 9th Kompanie of the Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 12 which was formed up in various places, including Berlin.

The 12th Reserve was mobilized on 2 August 1914 and attached to 10. Reserve-Infanterie-Brigade / 5. Reserve-Division / III. Reserve-Korps / 9. Armee at the time of his death.

Looking at the military history of the 5th Reserve Division, from 18 December 1914 to 16 July 1915 they were fighting the Battle of the Bzura River as part of the 9th Army.

Fritz died on 12 June 1915 in the trench warfare around Kozłów Biskupi, Poland on the Eastern Front, just before Russia's Great Retreat and the Battle for Warsaw.

The 9th Army's headquarters was in Łódź, which is where I'd expect him to be buried all things considered.
