We are NO LONGER searching for a man named JÄGER or JAEGER
in Karlsbad now Karlovy Vary in 1932

Can you possibly help us?

We are searching for information about a man by the name of JÄGER or JAEGER or JAGR if he was Czech - and anything that may be known about his family.

All we know is:

He was possibly Czech or Austrian

Born some time around 1900 - 1915

He was a Society man in Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary) and gambled there – or worked at the Race Track (Dvory).

Zavodni c. 1
okres Karlovy Vary

There was a chest full of Jäger's things, personal things, jewelry, silk clothing, and other expensive (for that time) items. Among these items was a jewelry piece referred to as "the hand that points to Thora".

This might indicate that Jaeger was Jewish

We also know that he had a sister.
There is known to have been an attempt to kidnap Jaeger's son when he was about 8 in or around 1936-37-38 by a possible sister of Jäger.

If Jäger was Jewish and did not die in 1932-33, then where did he go? How far did he get if he was running from the Germans? Theresienstadt?

He died of a heart attack in the period between June of 1932 and March 1933, and while working (or betting) at the Race Track in Maierhoefen (Dvory). It could also have been an accident.

He is presumably buried somewhere in Karlsbad, possibly in the cemetery of Drahovice

Do you recognize the little boy?
He is Jaeger's son, aged about 6. It was taken in 1939.

The little boy here wants to have a set of parents,
both of them.

This little boy's mother was Adele BECHER
Unfortunately the picture you see here was taken around 1955

Adele BECHER was born in Donawitz, now Stanovice, on May 21, 1898.
According to the 1930 census records of 1930 she lived at number 41 in Maierhoefen. That was the Moser Glassfabrik, owned by Ludwig MOSER . The whole Becher family lived and worked at that Glass Factory in Maierhoefen, Karlsbad, now Dvory, Czech Republic.

Do you recognize any of this?

Can you guide us in any way?

If you have no information, do you know of anyone else, anywhere, where we can ask?
