The death year is slightly unclear. It is possible to read it as [5]674, [5]675 or [5]678, but the monument clearly states that it was on a Thursday, and only in 1915 was that Jewish date on a Thursday. The other years would convert to Monday 18 May 1914 or Saturday 4 May 1918.

Saturday 4 May 1918
