    Yes, this is also used to separate e-u (which else is pronounced
    "oi" in german). But it occures only in some old names like
    "MathŽus" or "AmadŽus" - and is almost omitted because the
    letter is missing on (most) german typewriters / keyboards.

    And the acute in your example doesn't even look like a typo
    - more like a nose (too much ink), because it isn't quite in
    the right position.
