Jakob Blum 1943

Jakob Blum was born in Seubelsdorf in 1892. He married Irma Michelsohn, and their marriage produced their son Hans (born 1933). Jakob worked briefly as a teacher in the Jewish Community of Baiersdorf near Erlangen in 1914, but was drafted into military service at the beginning of the World War in 1914. He was not able to resume his duties in Baiersdorf until 1916.

He also taught at Erlangen high schools and at the Realschule. Later stations of his work as a teacher were Bautzen (1933) - where his son Hans was born - and Dresden (until 1939).

In 1939 the family managed to emigrate via Great Britain (they lived for a short time in Abbey Road in London) to Palestine, where they arrived on January 6, 1940. According to the 1943 naturalization certificate, Jakob was a "farmer." He died on April 8, 1959 and was buried in Beit Yitskhak - Sha'Ar Khefer, Beit Yitzhak-Sha'Ar Hefer, Israel.
