His wife initially survived him, but was then deported to Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1942 and murdered in the Maly Trostinez extermination camp that same year . His children fled to the USA .
Reiser was shaped by late historicism . His most recent buildings were in the neo-baroque style, later he was based on functionalism . Many of his buildings were torn down or destroyed during the National Socialist era . The memory of its importance at the beginning of the 20th century was almost erased by the Nazi regime.
