The Arms of Astrid Esther Hilweg

Astrid Ester Hilweg, born 1935 at Riga.

The name Hellweg, connoting the wide "bright" clear way (heller Weg), derives from Low German helwech. Another meaning connotes a "Way of the Dead." In Grimm's Worterbuch, Helvegr is the route to Hel. In the Middle Ages, Hellweg was the official and common name given to main travelling routes in Germany. Their breadth was decreed as an unimpeded passageway a lance's width, about three meters, which the landholders on either side were required to maintain. In German literature when Helweg is used without an adjective, it usually refers to the well-researched Westphalian Hellweg, the main road from the region of the lower Rhine east to the mountains of the Teutoburg Forest, linking the Imperial cities of Duisburg, at the confluence of the Rhine and Ruhr rivers, and Paderborn.

Klaus Oswald Arved Hilweg was born 18 October 1894 at Dorpat, Estonia. He attended the city mid-level high school at Riga. On 22 November 1914 he was deployed with the Riga flying ambulance convoy of the Red Cross under Prince Kropotkin in the East Prussian war theatre (Goldap now in NE Poland). He joined the retreat to Grodno (now in western Belarus) in January and February 1915. He attended the 3rd Petrograd Ensign School in St. Petersburg from 15 May until 15 August 1915 and left as an Ensign. He joined the war in the 14th Army Corps 18th Infantry Division, in the 69th Ryazan Infantry Regiment, in 1915. He commanded the 16th Squad in the vicinity of Dünaburg (modern Daugavpils in SE Latvia) and was at the beginning of 1917 temporary instructor for machine gun characteristics at the Division Ensign School in Murimuschki village in the area of Driswaty and Demmen (now Drysviaty, Belarus and Demene, Latvia). He was junior and senior lieutenant and received the Order of St. Stanislaus 4th class (for distinction in battle) and 3rd class (with ribbon and swords), as well as the Order of St. Anna 4th and 3rd class. At the time of the German occupation 1917/1918 he was head of a police precinct in Riga, at the withdrawal of the German troops he entered the Baltic territorial army, to whose combat troop he belonged from 1918 until January 1920. After the war’s end he was next engaged in the American Consulate in Riga, and was in 1921 head of the publicity house “Glocke” and thereafter employed in the advertising bureau of Ed. Petzolz in Riga. Since January 1923 he trained in Friedenau by Burg (administrative region Magdeburg) as an Adventist minister and was engaged as such in Riga and Mitau (modern Jelgava). He died 4 July 1949 at Husum, Schleswig-Holstein. Married December 1919 at Riga to Irmgard Caroline Alexandra Spengel, born 9 March 1896 at Riga as daughter of the honourable citizen Friedrich Spengel (died 1918 at St. Petersburg) and Anette née Stoltz (died 1939 Riga, Latvia).
