I posted in the past an enquiry about 2 of my late
mother's remote relatives the brothers Rolf and Kurt
Max Koenigsbuch born in 1929 and 1931 respectively in
Hamburg. They were on the Kindertransport and survived
the war in Birmingham. They never participated in the
Kindertransport reunions and we lost their traces
though they are most probably still active somewhere.
Last week I discovered their 95 years old first cousin
Erna Teichteil-Koenigsbuch in Johannesburg through a
wonderful Genners' participation.
On Monday I got an email >from a remote relative of
them who lives in Buenos Aires which reported to me
that between 1969-1970 she lived in New York and that
her father put an ad in a local newspaper looking for
Koenigsbuchs.She wrote to me the following:"and a big
surprise came ,a young man living a short time in N.Y.
he was a journalist and I remember he said he got a
brother in England.This must be Kurt or Rolf.We never
more got in touch with them".
I checked in Birmingham and Manchester and through
most of the normal places and I believe that only one
of our genner brethern ,through personal knowledge,
may put me on track again. I am quite convinced that
they changed their name. There are 2 Kurt Koenigs
registered in NY State white pages.One has a recording
the second is a fax.There are no Koenigsbuchs in all
of the USA(only my cousins Kingsbook in California).
