Searching for BASWITZ Frankfurt an der Oder #general


Judith Elam
 

About 2 weeks ago I posted a message searching for relatives named BASWITZ >from
Frankfurt an der Oder, the children of the Max BASWITZ and Caecilie WEISS BASWITZ,
married in 1863. I now have more specific names and birth dates for these BASWITZ
children: Hans Carl (1864), Benno (1865), Hermann (1867), Walter (1869), Kurt
(1871), Elsbeth (1873 - perished in Holocaust) and possibly Gertrud BASWITZ STERN
(1881) and Margarethe BASWITZ WEISSTEIN(1874), if they are daughters of Max BASWITZ
and not some other BASWITZ. I know Gertrud and Margarethe perished in the
Holocaust, but Gertrud had a son, Kurt STERN who emigrated to NY with his wife and
sons Ralf/Rolf and Peter Michael. I have seen the ship's manifest, but no further
records on them. Ralf and Peter Michael could still be alive, as they were born
1930 and 1936, respectively.

I have found Hans Carl in London (Movinghere.org.uk)for 1939, but nothing on him
after that. Hermann shows up in Berlin directories up until 1925 in the family
printing business. Walter appears as a Wechselmakler in the 1907 Frankfurt/Oder
directory. Benno was a doctor and shows up in the 1922 Frankfurt/Oder directory.
Nothing at all on Kurt. I would love to know what happened to all these brothers
too.

Does anyone know which cemetery Jews >from Frankfurt/Oder would be buried in and how
to find burial records? If anyone has any information on these BASWITZ and/or
their descendants, please contact me directly at elamj@...
