MICHAELIS AND THERESE GLASER

The tombstone of Michaelis and Therese Glaser (née Wertheim) is one of the more eccentric mazewot at the Jewish cemetery in Zittau. With its curved shape, unusually shaped star of David and floral ornaments it stands out from the other, more simple tombstones.

Therese and Michaelis Glaser belonged to the first generation of Jews that settled in Zittau. Michaelis was the first chairman of the Jewish community after it was founded in 1885. They had a son, Fritz, and a daughter, Clara.

Fritz became a lawyer and was portrayed with his family by famous painter Otto Dix in 1925.
