  • In February 2014 a set of Cassirer documents was put on line as Papers of the Cassirer-Tietz Family, 1879-1983 by the Leo Baeck Institute. This replicates a number of documents already on this site but also contains a wealth of additional documentation, including attempts at preparing a family genealogy. [Caution should be exercised in relation to the genealogy provided as it seems to replicate the apparent misconception first published by Harry Nutt in his book "Bruno Cassirer" that the mother of Markus Cassirer was Eva Fischer whereas the evidence points to her being Pesel bat Salomon Friedländer. This arises from the fact that there were two Moses Cassirers living in close proximity (see elsewhere in this site).]

Other links can be added. Let me know if you think any would be particularly useful.

  • Irene Sychrava album. Irene Sychrava brought a wonderful collection of family photos, many of them identified, to the London reunion. She also generously agreed to lend them so they could be copied and put up on the website. Photos from the Ernst and Toni Cassirer, and Bondy lines and dinner menus and postcards including to the Geheebs can be found here.
  • One family: Two lines. The Serck-Hanssen and Goerke Family Genealogy - Some real progress has been made in tracing the way in which the Marianne Serck-Hanssen and Johanna Goerke lines connect with the line of Cassirers stretching down from Marcus Cassirer.
  • The work done for One family: Two lines leads naturally to a series of questions about the origins of the Cassirer family. How and where was the name coined? What of the other Cassirer descendants who were born but of whom we have yet to find information? And how did the Cassirer family move geographically and socially to become so well-known and frankly financially well endowed? Work on this can now be found centred on the Research in Progress section. This work includes:
