Dear Rebecca: Welcome!
Thank you for your intro, which is most informative. Thanks also for
putting your queries in the Family Finder.
One place you should check is the Gedenkbuch Deutschland--the German
Holocaust memorial database.
It will give information about deportation destinations, etc.
BLASCHKE is an unusual surname with only a few entries in Menk's
Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames. They're all >from the eastern parts
of Germany--all but one now in Poland, the other right on the border.
The Gedenkbuch lists a Martin BLASCHKE born in 1864 in Frankfurt/Oder
(the town on the border), who was deported >from Chemnitz, where he
lived. Could this be the Martin B you refer to?
Good luck, and keep us posted on what you find!
