      Note: Margaret Robitschek bio.".. Gerson was a factor; that means he bought raw material and had people work for him to process it. In his case it was iron; various blacksmiths in the vicinity of the village where he lived made nails which he then sold to ironmongers and hardware stores, and mainly of course to the general stores in the country.. ..The family was very popular in the community, and known as very hospitable. I remember to have heard that once when the grandfather had been ill, my father sent him a crate of French Cognac; whoever came to the house was offered a glass of that and the peasants loved it - and there were more and more people visiting, and the Cognac was served to all until someone told the generous host how expensive French Cognac was even then - and then the flow of Cognac stopped in the Robitschek house.. ..Everybody in the village adored grandmother Betti; she was always asked to give advice, and she always had an open hand for everybody.. Every Sunday morning, grandmother Betti would walk to the gatekeeper’s lodge. A chair was ready for her. Soon, she was surrounded by all the people from the old village, who came to talk to her about their problems, their families and current events. To accompany her to these sessions was a special favor.."

There my mother moved after their wedding, and there I was born a year later, and two years later, my brother Hans. In 1903 my father bought Choceň, with the financial support of Theodore Kantor. He became a partner in the newly formed firm of M. Robitschek & Co. or, shortly,“MRC” Uncle Emanuel, my father’s brother, also because a partner and sales manager for the firm.

        • Margaret (Grete) ROBITSCHEK Born: Jan 29, 1899 in Babi, Bohemia. Residence: Choceň Bohemia, New York? Died: Oct 17, 1984 Sta Barbara? + Bedrich (Friedrich, Fritz) HONIG /HOENIG Born: Jul 15, 1890 Married: May 16, 1920 Died: ?1945 Siblings: Irene Honig (1894 - ) & Arthur Nohel ( m. 1919 res. Washington, DC - ) widower of Irene's cousin Olga Libicky "ch. prof John Nohel & Vera Weiskopf parents of Richard, Audrey, Thomas", Nanny Honig ( - teenager Woodland, California), John (Honza, Hans?) Honig (1897 - 1959 New York) & Zdenka Sehuck ( m. 1926 - ) "ch. Mitch Honig & Margaret (?) parents of 4 four children", Milunka Honig ( - Auschwitz concentraion camp with her mother) Father: Philip Hoenig (abt 1860 - 1929) brother of Berthold Hoenig (res. Nové Hrady) philosopher and writer, Emil Hoenig ( res. Jablonec), Jeannette Hoenig & (?) Libicky farmer, Minna Hoenig & Alois Bacher ?(Malvicka's mother) Mother: Helene Lilienfeld ( m. 1888 - 1943 Terezin camp) sister of dr Ernst Lilienfeld ( res. Budějovice - 1942 Terezin) P-grandfather: Salomon Hoenig "..the Hoenigs or Honigs as they spelled their name were descendants of a Spanish or Portuguese family by the name of Pereira, who during the Spanish Inquisition were forcibly converted to Catholicism; such converts were called  “marannes".." M-grandfather: Joachim Lilienfeld M-grandmother: Charlotte (Mautner?) ( m. abt 1860 res. Jičín - )

          *bio. ".. Philip Hoenig is distantly related to mother of Anci Goldmann (from Choceň) and The Lilienfields it is known that around 1750 there were some ancestors by the name of Mautner. They had. 24 children. Even in those times it was something rather exceptional. According to an often (heard) story, the couple were ordered to appear in audience before the Empress Maria Theresia who wanted to see them. Allegedly she told her husband (Francis of Lorraine) "gib’s ihnen" meaning to let them have the tobacco store for the State Monopoly. Usually such stores were granted as a privilege to war veterans or to deserving retired public servants. The store, or as it was called in Austria, the "Trafik" remained in the family for two centuries.  I do not know when the Lilienfelds appeared on the scene‑ perhaps one of the Mautner daughters married a Lilienfeld. The Trafik was still in the hands of the family when Joachim Lilienfeld married Charlotte (Mautner?), about 1860.."

          Note: bio. "..Margaret Robitschek meets Fritz Honig - We first met on December 29, 1913.  A few months before my father had spent a few weeks at a spa near Dresden, called “Weisser Hirsch”.  While he was there he met an old business friend, who in turned had invited a related student who attended the Dresden Technical College.  My father liked the young man who was specializing in textile technology, and had some interesting discussions with him; in the course of the conversations he invited him to stop in Choceň, whenever he would have a chance, to see some new machinery my father had recently bought.. ..Fritz became a partner in the firm, later Vice President of the Textile Employers' Association, and lay judge in Labor questions. He was co‑founder of the DYAS plywood factory in Uherský Ostroh, and was well-known and respected as an outstanding expert. After the Nazi occupation the entire property was confiscated, and Fritz together with Hans Robitschek were arrested under a fictitious charge and jailed in a terrible Nazi prison. Then they were released and expelled to a small town, Holice. This happened in 1941; in 1942 the family was arrested and brought to Svatoborice concentration camp, and from there in December 1942 to Terezin camp. On September 28, 1944 Fritz was taken to Auschwitz and from there to Dachau concentration camp where he died some time in December 1944"
