Moritz Schild lived with his wife Ida Schild, née Jacoby, and their joint son Werner Jakob Schild (born 28 May 1905 in Dortmund) in Hörde. At the time of their son’s birth, they were living at Chausseestrasse 45. The mother appears to have died prior to 1929. In 1929, the father and son moved together to Hermannstrasse 36, where they lived until 1932. From 1932 until the time when they were forced to leave, they lived at Alfred-Trappen-Str. 49. They were then compelled to move to a “Jew house” at Bickestr. 9. From there, they were relocated to the “Jew house” at Williburgstr. 6.
Moritz Schild was deported on 29 July 1942 to Theresienstadt; he was then transferred from there on 23 September 1942 to Treblinka extermination camp, where he was murdered immediately after his arrival.
Werner Jakob Schild was moved on 1 December 1942 to the assembly camp at Parsevalstr. 6. There, all trace of him disappears. It must be assumed that he, too, became a victim of the Shoah.
