About Ludwig Lagus

From nephew, Friedrich GUTH's memoir (sadly incomplete ...):

" ... When I was a bit older I was allowed to visit my uncle Ludwig Lagus by myself. Once on my way there by horse-drawn streetcar, I overheard the excited conversation of my fellow travelers about the alleged ritual murder committed in Kuttenberg by a man called Hilsner. The uneducated Catholic clergy spread the rumor that before Easter Jews needed the blood of a Christian child for ritual purposes. Hilsner, a feebleminded Jew was sentenced to be hanged, solely on the strength of circumstantial evidence. As was customary this death warrant was sent for confirmation to Emperor Francis Joseph who commuted the sentence to lifelong imprisonment. The case aroused wide Indignation ..."

cf. further extract from memoirs written by Friedrich "Fritz" GUTH (in family archives - still not yet fully examined):

"My mother Agnes was the daughter of Jakob Ludwig Lagus and Sophie, née Gibian. I knew my grandfather; he died when I was in grade school. He exported eggs and butter to Germany. After his death, his son Ludwig carried on the business and amassed a considerable fortune."
