Hi H-sig list members,

I wonder if someone of you might be able to help me.

I am looking for information about a relative who lived in Budapest for som=
e time during WW II.
He was >from Prague and left Prague sometime between 1939 and 1940 for Budap=
est. He probably worked there as a chemical engineer.
In Sept. or Oct. 1944, shortly after the German occupation he returned to P=
rague where he probably hoped to find his family to support him. He died in=
Prague in a hospital for mentally handipapped people only a few weeks afte=
r his return.
He was a so called "half jew" in Nazi teminology. I believe he left Budapes=
t because he was afraid to be deported to the east as a "half jew" and hope=
d to be spared with a german father in Prague, but as it seems this didn't =
work out.=20
But all this is pure speculation, as I have no information about his time i=
n Budapest.=20

How can I find out where he lived in Budapest?, where he worked?, whether h=
e was listed in lists of jews? etc.

Thank you very much in advance,

Peter Zimmer
