Emigration from Germany to Palestine in 1933 #general

Liz Hanellin

Hello Jewish Genners,

I am looking for records regarding Ludwig LEVI (b. April 10, 1909), who emigrated
from Germany to Palestine in 1933.
According to what I learned, >from someone in Germany who has access to the
documents regarding the fate of the Jews of Mannheim, he left Germany on September
10, 1933. In Palestine, he worked first as a construction worker; was an auxiliary
policeman >from 1937-1939; served in the British Army >from 1939-1946; then later
worked again as a construction worker.

How would I go about tracing this information on the Israel (or British?) side?

As a matter of curiousity, I am curious about how this information came to be known
in Germany. If anyone has insight about this, I would also welcome it.

Finally, does anyone know whether the date of September 10, 1933 is of particular
significance >from a German or German Jewish perspective? A brother of Ludwig's
emmigrated to Luxembourg on the same date.

As always, thanks for any and all advice you may have.
