Part of the Springer Biographies book series (SPRINGERBIOGS)


Herbert Fröhlich was born at 11.30 am on Saturday 9 December 1905 in the home of his paternal grand-parents, Abraham Jakob and Dorken (née Landauer) at Im Brühl, 186 (now Freudenstädter Straβe 31), in Rexingen (Württemberg), a village in the Neckar valley, on the edge of the Black Forest, where an unusually high proportion of the inhabitants were Jewish. Rexingen is near Horb am Neckar, approximately midway between Freudenstadt and Tübingen.
