Elsbeth Silbers

Elsbeth Silbers was born on April 20, 1820 in Lutheria, in a house above her parents' butchery. She is the second child of David and Lena Silbers, following her older brother Jöel by three years.

Although her parents ran a successful butcher shop, they did not have a lot of money. Elsbeth had always wanted to become a nurse, but due to a lack of funds, she was unable to pursue her dream. Instead, she offered to volunteer at the hospital in Lutheria, where she assisted in caring for the elderly and long-term patients, many of whom were members of the Jewish community. Additionally, she helped those in need by collecting food and clothing for the less fortunate. It was during this time that she met Samuel Hochter, who had just lost both his home and business in a fire. Elsbeth was immediately struck by his appearance and character, but was too shy to admit her feelings. It wasn't until years later that the two finally revealed their mutual love.

On March 5, 1841, Samuel and Elsbeth got married. Their union not only brought them love but also some benefits to their respective families. Elsbeth's family runs a small kosher butchery in Lutheria, and Samuel had previously sold his cattle to the Silbers family. However, now that they are married, the farm and the butchery can become a part of the joint family business. This has provided some financial relief to both families, although life remains challenging for both of them.

Herman Hochter was born on January 16, 1842, on the Hochter estate as the son of Samuel and Elsbeth Hochter. Despite some complications, he was born healthy and cheerful, although one month later than anticipated.

Mozes Hochter was born on May 12th, 1845, as the second child of Samuel and Elsbeth Bruere on the Hochter estate. Although the birth initially went smoothly, it soon became apparent that the baby was breech. Two doctors present at his birth tried to save him. After several hours, the baby was finally delivered but unfortunately died shortly afterwards. His mother, Elsbeth, was heartbroken and fell into a depression afterwards and became extra protective over her family. The baby, posthumously named Mozes, was buried at the local cemetery in Lutheria.

Joël Silbers and Esther Muller got married on April 5, 1849. At first, their marriage felt forced, especially with Joël working most of the time. However, as time passed, the couple gained more respect for each other, and their relationship improved.

On January 4th, 1853, David Silbers was discovered deceased by his wife Lena, as they woke up. He passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 85. Lena, as well as their children Jöel and Elsbeth, were deeply saddened by his passing. David was laid to rest at the nearby cemetery in Lutheria.

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.

Lena passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 28, 1856, only four years after the death of her dearly beloved husband. Prior to her passing, she was able to see the birth of her grandchild David and ensure his well-being, which brought her great joy in her final days. She is buried next to her husband at the Lutherian cemetery.

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.

Elsbeth has a petite and pale complexion, featuring striking blue eyes and bold dark eyebrows. Her expression often reflects a pensive and melancholic mood. Unlike many women, she prefers practical short hair. Standing at only 1.60 meters, she is noticeably smaller than her husband. Elsbeth moves with poise and grace, appearing to almost float above the ground.

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.
