About Simon Adler

Simon Adler was born November 19, 1839 in Velký Bor, a village near Horazdovice HBMa Fond 1073 inv. č 453 Horazdovice, Folio 1, Line 1. His birth record contains the following information:

  • Under the column for the father, the words "Jacob Adler, trader, Familiant in Horažďovice dominion, in the village Velký Bor, House 1" are crossed out.
  • Under the column for the mother, it says "Theresia Polack, maid at Jacob Adler, Velký Bor, House 1, legitimate daughter after deceased Simon Polack and Anna Polack, nee Maier from Měcholupy, Klatovy region."
  • In the column labeled remarks, the following comment appears: "Jakob Adler, who is known as the father of this child, will fulfil his paternal care, this is confirmed by his signature and those of two witnesses."

From this one may presume that because Jakob was not a Familiant, he could not obtain official permission for a civil marriage. A common subterfuge in such cases was for the wife to present herself as a maid in the home. It was not until 1850 that these restrictions were lifted. After that, Jewish couples of all ages rushed to marry so they could retroactively bestow legitimacy on their children.

Simon died February 21, 1928 and was buried in Horazdovice Prager Tagblatt

A rough translation of the grave stone says:

Here rests Simon Adler From Velký Bor. Born 19 November 1839, died 21 February 1928
