GerSig : Searching for my Grandmother Selma ZWIENITSKI's grave #germany


Yvonne Stern
 

Hi, Selma,
The tragic death of your grandmother Selma SWINITZKI, geb. STIEFEL, is
well known in Bremen. You should request the Stadtarchiv Bremen for
a copy of her death certificate and the location of her grave.

EMail : information@...

In 1982 Bremen built a memorial in honor of the five Jewish victims,
including your grandmother, who were murdered during the
Reichpogromnacht in the town.

It is designed in simple, cubic forms of black-colored concrete
and carries a plaque with the following inscription:

OUR JEWISH CITIZENS
MARTHA GOLDBERG
DR. ADOLF GOLDBERG
HEINRICH ROSENBLUM
LEOPOLD SINASOHN
SELMA SWINITZKI
WERE MURDERED IN THIS CITY during THE
NIGHT OF 9th TO 10th November 1938

As you probably already know in 2005 your father (or your uncle) had
a Stolpestein put in front of the house where your grandparents
lived until 1938.
