From the war he returned with asthma.On April 5, 1914 he married Irma Lukas.

The family had a fairly secular life. In fact, in 1928 Georg was cut off from the Jewish community and stopped paying the synagogue tax. In 1933 he returns to pay it. This is what we learn from the following documents in which the payment of the synagogue tax is given (and from these documents we know the family's addresses).
