Albert Holländer’s parents were Markus Max and Anna Holländer. His marriage with his wife Martha produced two children: Alfred Erich (born on 15 Sept. 1909), who already passed away in 1931, and his daughter Eva, married name Arnheim, about whom we have no further information.
From 1904 until the professional ban on Jewish lawyers (on 30 Nov. 1938), Dr. Albert Holländer practiced as a lawyer in his own law office at the addresses of Neuer Wall 5 and Grosse Theaterstrasse 34/36. For the second address, other Jewish lawyers were registered in the 1930s: Dr. Herbert Samson (see corresponding entry), Bernhard David (1878–1949), Dr. Michael Jacob Flörsheim (1888–1967), and Dr. Joseph Koppel (1897–1977).
Albert Holländer’s main area of work focused on commercial and contract law. In addition, he was regarded as a citizen very much committed to social issues: In 1901, he joined the Patriotic Society (Patriotische Gesellschaft), in 1920 he held the office of first chairman of the Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith (Centralverein deutscher Bürger jüdischen Glaubens), and in 1936, he took on the office of vice president of the Jewish Steinthal-Lodge at Hartungstrasse 9–11. Moreover, he supported the religious-liberal list (Religiös-Liberale Liste) during the elections for the college of representatives of the German-Israelitic Community in Hamburg.
From Apr. 1939 until July 1942, Albert Holländer was able to work only as a Jewish "legal adviser” ("Konsulent”) [a newly introduced Nazi term for Jewish lawyers banned from full legal practice] for Jewish clients. In about 1930, he lived with his wife at Maria-Louisen-Strasse 104, in the same house as Mechel Hesslein (see corresponding entry). In 1938/39 their address was Hochallee 106, later they lived at Sonninstrasse 14 in Altona. From there, they were deported on 11 July 1942 (probably) to Auschwitz and murdered.
P.S. The Stolpersteine were laid already in 2003 in front of Heimhuder Strasse 14
