>>57201>Well, ancestry.com labels every single German name as a jewish surname
That's because it's true. But some Jews prefer special German names. That German names are more typical for Jews than for Germans.
"Suess" is one of them. Additionally he looks like Jew (but denies it).
He has also a Dr. title. That's another indication for him being of Jewish ancestry. Jews had a disproportional high amount of Dr titles in Germany by that time.
I am convinced without even a doubt he is a Jew. Probably not by religion, nor by rabbinical law. But by ancestry he is.
Jews by that time were shamed so I guess this is the major reason why he denied being a Jew.
