Richard Friedländer


German Jewish merchant, stepfather of Magda Goebbels, prisoner in the Buchenwald concentration camp and victim of the Holocaust.

Friedländer was from a wealthy Jewish Berlin merchant family. In 1908 he married Auguste Behrend, who had divorced her first husband Oskar Ritschel, and who brought her only child Magda into the marriage. Friedländer adopted Magda so that she had his last name.

Following her marriage to the industrialist Günther Quandt, Magda avoided any contact with her father Richard Friedländer. He was now impoverished and had to earn his living with menial jobs (e.g. as a waiter). On 15 June 1938, he was deported to Buchenwald concentration camp as part of the so-called June action Arbeitsscheu Reich. Already injured, he had to do hard work in the quarry, which in connection with the catastrophic living conditions, led to his death, on 18 February 1939 at age 58.
