Source Notes

Sy Scholfield notes that the birth certificate gives 23 December but Ehrenstein writes that he was born at 11pm on 22 December: "Albert Ehrenstein Werke: Aufsätze und Essays" (Wallstein Verlag, 2004), p. 490: "Was man als meinen Körper wahrnahm, ward in dem Wiener Vorort Ottakring am 22. Dezember 1886 um 11 Uhr abends geboren. Meine Eltern rundeten diese Geburtszeit als praktische Menschen auf den 23. Dezember ab, der daher auch in den Handbüchern und Literaturgeschichten, soweit sie meiner gedenken, als mein Geburtstag angegeben wird, da ich den wahren Sachverhalt erst vor drei Jahren erfuhr."

Translation: What you perceive as my body was born on 22 December 1886 at 11 o'clock in the evening in the Vienna suburb of Ottakring. My parents rounded off the birth time as 23 December, which therefore appears in the historical literature. I learned the true state of affairs only three years ago.
