A German Jew In Palestine: Looking for Ludwig LEVI #germany

Liz Hanellin

Hello Fellow GerSIGers,

I am not sure whether this is the correct place for me to post this query,
but I am looking for records regarding Ludwig LEVI (b. April 10, 1909),
who emmigrated >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, Ludwig LEVI
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?)

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.

Best, Liz Hanellin, New York City Also researching: FRANKENTHALER
