Hochheimer

 
Made on a Mac

The Hochheimer family lived in the town of Steinheim in Westphalia beginning around 1800.  They most likely originated from the town of Hochheim am Main, which is just outside of Mainz, near Frankfurt.  The earliest mention of a Hochheimer in Steinheim is in 1808, when the Jews were required to take family names.  Unlike the twelve other Jewish families in Steinheim who took new names, Abraham Hochheimer, born in 1769, kept the name that he had previously been using.


Abraham had two sons and three daughters.  The descendants of the two sons, Mathias and Simon, made up the two branches of the Hochheimer family in Steinheim.  Mathias established a grain business and a bank. He married Gellchen HIRSCHLAND who was descended from the BASSEVI family.  One of the daughters, Rachel, married Selig KLEINSTRASS; the couple moved to the nearby town of Bredenborn.  The Hirschland family page can be found HERE, the Bassevi page can be found HERE, and the Kleinstrass page HERE.


The grandsons of Mathias, Moritz (photo at right, below) and Siegfried, continued the grain business started by their grandfather, and built it by the end of the 1800’s into the largest business in the region, with business connections reaching from Scandinavia to the Balkans.


A son of Siegfried, Albert Hochheimer (1900 - 1975, photo below) moved to France before the war and later to Switzerland.  There he became a well known author of children’s books and novels, especially adventure stories and historical fiction, publishing 47 books. He also wrote under the pseudonym of Bert Jorat.


In the twentieth century many residents of Steinheim, including many of the Hochheimers, left for larger cities.  When the Nazis came to power in 1933, the last Hochheimers still living in Steinheim left.  The wife and sons of Moritz Hochheimer emigrated to Brazil.  Rosa Hochheimer, wife of Siegfried and mother of the author Albert, was the last Hochheimer in Steinheim.  She moved to Aachen in 1934, but was later deported from there to eastern Europe where she was killed. 


The Jews who still remained in Steinheim were deported in 1942.  Of the 59 Jews living in Steinheim in 1933, 32 were killed in concentration camps.


There are a number of other Hochheimer families, including that of Elias ben Hayyim Cohen Hochheimer, an astronomer and mathematician in 18th century Amsterdam, and the family of Henry Hochheimer, the most prominent rabbi of 18th century Baltimore.


The research on this page was done in collaboration with Frank Hochheimer. Thank you also to Dick Mayer and Pierre Martinet for sharing their data on the Hochheimer family. Thank you to David Blank for his records on the descendants of Johanna Hochheimer. Also many thanks to Fritz Ostkämper for helpful data.  Finally, thank you to the archivists of the town of Steinheim for the very helpful information they supplied.
