On February 6 1991 the 23rd of Shvat, Oma died peacefully with her family around her, exactly seven years by the Jewish calendar since Ellen died. 

Two and a half years later on September 23rd, 1993, Tishrei 8, Opa followed his beloved wife of sixty  three years.

This is one of the last photos taken before Oma and Opa's deaths. They are pictured here with Bobby.

Oma and Opa painted a vivid picture of life in Germany before Hitler, much of the information contained in these  page, were  from  their stories.

We miss them.

Today, Eddie  has alzheimers, he and Henry furnished some of the information, several years ago, we are still researching his family, and have tracing forms submitted through the American Red Cross and the Simon Weisenthall Center.

We are in contact with Marcel Berkowitz and his family in New York.

We are in contact with our parents cousins, The Lidawers, Leon and Fred Heller, Sandy Lustig, and Ruth Sundgren

Shlomo Dreymann's son, Jon z'l continues to call and visit.

Here is a photo of a plaque that hangs in Israel, our parents and grandparents were members of the Jewish Survivors From Nazism.

There are organizations that continue to deny what happened, they blame the Zionists, they blame the Jews, they claim the Shoah never happened. As they deny the truth, bigotry and ethnic genocide continues all over the globe.

Honor the memory of your ancestors,  continue to live your lives fully in their memories. Continue the work of your parents, grand parents and great grandparents to combat  bigotry for all humanity.

We will post information as we receive it, so you our children will know and remember, we hope that you will  contribute to a world of peace.

We love you.

Suzanne, Robert, Martin and David.


We invite all of our family members, who would like to contribute to this special Family Album.
