Emanuel Schickler and his wife Johanna, née Ascher, had a shop for silk ribbons at Reichenstraße 21 in Altona. Reichenstraße, which runs along Nobistor between the Kleine Freiheit and the Große Freiheit and was at that time within the jurisdiction of the city of Altona (Altona was incorporated into Hamburg in 1938), got its name (Rich Street) from the wealthy Dutch and Jewish-Portuguese merchants who settled there in the 16th century. At the end of the 18th century, the name was all that was left of the wealth of the street’s former residents. The trade with silk ribbons evidently was enough to support Emanuel Schickler’s family of seven, thanks to the proximity of the red-light district in St. Pauli. The Schicklers had three sons, Alfred, Adolph and Siegmund, born between 1872 and 1878, and twin daughters, Mathilde and Rosa.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the family lived at Hoheweide 5 in Eimsbüttel. The two unmarried brothers Siegmund and Adolph lived there until 1938. All of the children became merchants, and worked and lived together in various constellations.
The twins Mathilde and Rosa Schickler, born on 8 August 1874, opened a shop for clothing and accessories called "R. & M. Schickler.” Both married late, and they remained the owners of their business after they were married. In the early 20th century they had a shop at Hammerbrookstraße 6, and, for a short time, a second one at Eppendorfer Weg 45.
Rosa Schickler was 38 when she married the 36-year-old Max Angres in 1912. He was from Beuthen in Upper Silesia, where he was born on 26 December 1876 to Johanna (née Aufrichtig) and Salo Angres. Max Angres was a travelling salesman. The couple lived in Harburg at Lüneburger Straße 28 until 1931. Rosa commuted from there to her shop on Hammerbrookstraße. In 1928 Max Angres acquired a trade license as a linen goods merchant, and joined his brother-in-law Alfred Schickler’s business, located on the corner of Hammerbrookstraße and Besenbinderhof.
The couple changed their membership from the Harburg Jewish Community to the Hamburg German-Israelitic Community. They had no children. They shared a house with Rosa’s widowed twin sister, Mathilde Dyhrenfurth, at Borgfelder Straße 24. Their unmarried brother Siegmund Schickler moved in with them when his business took a downturn and he and his brother Adolph gave up the apartment at Hoheweide 5.
The eldest brother Alfred and his non-Jewish wife (a "privileged mixed marriage”) lived at Hammerbrookstraße 14, and he ran the above-mentioned retail business for men’s undergarments on Hammerbrookstraße. He was the only sibling in the family to survive the Nazi regime. Adolph Schickler, a merchant and express agent, married the widow Elsa Bandmann, née Berg, in 1938 at the age of 60. He moved into her residence in Eppendorf. He died on 25 February 1941. Elsa Schickler was deported to Riga on 6 December 1941.
Siegmund Schickler and Rosa and Max Angres left Borgfelde in the summer of 1941. The Gestapo had begun the ghettoization of Jews in preparation for their deportation, and the Jewish Religious Organization (Jüdische Religionsverband) found them an apartment in a "Jews’ house” (Judenhaus), the Warburg Home on the corner of Bundesstraße and Papendamm. Max Angres was conscripted to forced labor as an excavator. Although all three were between 64 and 66 years old, they were assigned to the Minsk transport, for which the age limit was supposedly 60. Max was deported from Hamburg on 18 November 1941. Nothing more is known about the fates of Rosa Angres, Max Angres or Sigmund Schickler.
