Isaak Wohlgemuth

Our Wohlgemuth family patriarch embraced the values and culture of assimilated German Jewry in the 19th century. Born in a small west Prussian town, he prospered in business in Elbing, Danzig and Berlin. He married Betty Katz from a merchant Kolberg family, and they had two daughters, Elly and Hilda. The family resided for 18 years in the elegant Woelkpromenade in Berlin-Weissensee before his death at age 63.
