The Alexander family was prominent Croatian Jewish family from Zagreb. Alexander family ancestors moved to Zagreb from Güssing in Austria. For hundred years Alexander family played the important role in the economic and social life of Zagreb and Croatia. Until 1941 the Alexanders were a big clan rather than an ordinary family. The great-grandparents of the Zagreb Alexanders were Samuel and Julija (née Rubin) Alexander, who had five sons and several daughters. Counting all of their deceased and still living members, including also the descendants of the female line, there were 224 Alexanders in seven generations. Many members of the Alexander family have perished during the Holocaust. Today only one male descendant bears the surname Alexander.
