Searching for Heinz VERSTAENDIG (born in Vienna on December 18th 1931) son
of Adolf ALTSCHUL (his mother's name was Hedwig FISCHEL and father Emil
Altschul - he had a sister Jana). Adolf, born in Vienna 1910, lived in
Prague and Brno, arrived in Britain on December 2nd 1947 (was living at
45 Arundel Gardens London W.11). He gave his profession (to the JRC) as
'journalist'. I do not know why father and son had different last names.
They both registered with the JRC in London on the same day December 18th,
1947. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Another cousin of my mothers' (in addition to ALTSCHUL) was Otto KANTUREK.
He was the son of Hilda FISCHEL and a well known cinematographer who
worked with Fritz LANG. During the War he worked as a photojournalist in
Britain and flew between Dover and Calle when he was shot down. (photo of
the plane being shot down was published in LIFE magazine - I have not been
able to find it yet). I am searching for any information on Otto KANTUREK
or any survivors of his immediate family. He was married in Edmond (does
anyone know where that is?) and may have had children.
