David Hochter

David Hochter was born on September 7, 1856 on the Hochter farm as the third child of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. The family was particularly elated to welcome David as his older brother Mozes had passed away shortly after birth. During David's birth, his grandmother and 14-year-old elder brother Herman were in attendance.

On December 18, 1864, Lotte Hochter was born on the Hochter estate as the fourth child of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. Her brothers Herman and David were also present. During delivery, Elsbeth was stressed and scared due to a previous complication with her son Mozes. However, the delivery went smoothly and Lotte was born healthy. Being the only girl, her mother is especially protective of her.

David had to start working on the farm at a young age because his family was struggling financially. However, even with his hard work, they still didn't have enough money. Fortunately, Bernardus Lutz offered David a job at his estate and even gave him a reasonable loan as an act of kindness. At first, Bernardus was hesitant since David's family was Jewish, but with the help of Bernardus's parish, especially Eduardus Gren, they eventually accepted him. David helps Arendt with various tasks such as taking care of the animals, planting and harvesting crops, and cleaning the farm. Despite their differences in personality, with David being outgoing and cheerful and Arendt being more reserved and quiet, the two have become good friends and often play together after work.

David has thick black hair, dark eyebrows, and soft pale skin. He inherited his father's strong posture, but not his height - he measures only 1.45 meters, while his father was much taller at his age. Despite his mother Elsbeth's worry due to the trauma of losing her other son Mozes, David is very adventurous and wants to explore the highest trees and deepest holes. Along with his adventurous spirit, David is also quite intelligent and dreams of going to school. Unfortunately, after his elder brother Herman went to school, there is not enough money. However, his father Samuel is trying to save up some money so that David can attend a higher college.

Family

The Hochter family is one of the few Jewish families living in the area. Their ancestors hailed from East Germany and Poland, and they migrated to Kilden in search of a better life. For many generations now, the Hochter family has been residing in the region, with most of them working as farmers or butchers. Most notably, the Hochter farm is known for raising cattle for meat production, which is primarily sold through local butchers in the area. Despite the fact that they still face prejudice and hatred from locals of other religions, the situation is slowly improving, and people are becoming more respectful towards other faiths.
