Julius Weiss
(Karlovo nám. 9)

Julius Weiss was born on 17 January 1883 into a family of a businessman Theodor Weiss and his wife Filipa, born as Grafová, from Chlumec nad Cidlinou. He had dwelled in Kolín since approximately 1912. He was probably working at a textile shop and afterwards he took over a ready-made garment production at Karlovo náměstí 9. The store, as the advertisement of the time mentions, was established in 1866 and “deserves a recommendation because of its creditability”. Julius did not get married. During the Nazi occupation, the systematic genocide of the Jewish inhabitants was brought into effect. In spring of 1942, Julius Weiss was included in one of the transports. He was dragged away from Kolín by the first transport AAb that left for Terezín on 5 June 1942. On 12 June 1942, that is, one week later, the AAk took him to Trawniki where he perished.

The stolperstein has been paid by Gilda and Bernard Goldstein.
