It is impossible to find any Biography detail about Rabbi Eduard (Ed) Yechezkel
Duckesz. What is available is Very limited, and often questionable.
According to Info I got from Prof. Miriam Gillis-Carlebach (head of The Joseph
Carlebach Institute in Bar-Ilan University, http://www.biu.ac.il/js/Carlebach/, (based on
docs that the original can be The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in
Jerusalem 972-(0)2-563-5716 - http://sites.huji.ac.il/archives/)), Rabbi Duckesz was born
Aug 3 1868 in a place called Szelepszeny (???). Since 1891 he lived in Altona. In 1943
he was deported from Holland toward Auschwitz. March 6 1944 Auschwitz.
Rabbi Duckesz was the Klaus Rabbiner in Altona. He was also a Genealogist who wrote
few Genealogical works. One in which we know about – The Moeller Family History.

Here are the details about 2 books he wrote:
