Dear Esther:
"Left" would imply that they'd lived there all along. This is highly
unlikely. There may well be a few Jewish families in Peine, but if so,
they probably moved there in the intervening 64 years.

For information about post-WW II matters, I'd contact the Jewish
communities in Hannover and Braunschweig. For earlier times, the
following book on Jewish communities in Lower Saxony may be of interest:
Title: Historisches Handbuch der juedischen Gemeinden in Niedersachsen
und Bremen;
Author: Herbert Obenaus et al, eds.
Publication Date: 2005
No. of Pages: 1,688
Publisher: Wallstein Verlag, Goettingen
ISBN 3-89244-753-5

I'm sure that several libraries in Israel have copies of this book.
