JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Only Jewish Lawyer in Warsaw? Sir Herbert SAMUEL's secretary? #general

Lehava Falkson


Recent conversation with an older family member yielded two pieces of
information which were unknown to me, and I have not been able so far to
find any further information. Can anyone help?

According to this relative:

A. My great-grandmother's brother was the only Jewish lawyer in Warsaw at
the time. My great-grandmother's maiden name was Sochaczewski, and we are
probably talking about the years 1880-1910 or thereabouts.

B. My grandmother's cousin, name unknown - she might have been this said
lawyer's daughter - was the private secretary of Sir Herbert Samuel, when
he was the British High Commissioner of Palestine 1920-1925.

Has anyone got any ideas of how can I find more information and
verifications of these clues?
