Searching for FRANKEL relatives #general

Thomas F. Weiss

Dear JGenners,

On a recent research trip to Vienna I found the siblings of
my grandfather, Max FRENKEL, after many years of wondering if he had
any. I discovered that he had three sisters and one brother. His
sisters names were Leontine QUADRATSTEIN nee FRAENKEL (AE = A with
unlaut), Mindel ENGEL nee FRAENKEL, and Regina FRAENKEL. All three
sisters as well as my grandfather perished in the Holocaust.

Leontine apparently lived for a time in Saarbrucken, Germany.
I do not know if she had any children.

Mindel had a daughter, Augustine, who married Imre OLLOP.
The daughter and her husband also perished in the Holocaust.

Regina did not marry.

Max's brother Uscher FRAENKEL married Feige KUPFERBERG.
Uscher died in Vienna in 1924. The couple had two sons, Siegfried
and Hermann. Hermann married Franziska LACHS and they had a son
Ulrich Wilhelm FRAENKEL. The sons apparently emigrated >from Vienna in
1938 and a residence record in Vienna indicates that Siegfried went
to Belgium.

Does anyone have any information on any of these family members?

Please respond to me privately at
