As I mentioned in a prior posting, I have found another letter referring to
South Africans who were able to locate relatives who survived the Holocaust
through inquiries which were posted in the South African Jewish press.
The following letter was written on January 4, 1946 in response to such an
S. Keidan & Co. (PTY.) Limited
(Directors were S. & L. Keidan)
38, Rogers Street, Selby,
The letter was written to V. Sachar, 11 Marseilles Mansions, Marseilles
Avenue, Sea Point, SA, regarding locating Mr. Keidan's cousin
Galasko-Rubinstein in Lithuania. He stated ". . . In these difficult times
for us Jews, we appreciate any help of finding out about our relations." He
also mentioned that he was able to locate additional relations in Palestine
and that he had already sent them money parcels.
Mr. Sachar was President of the Kupishok Benevolent Society in Cape Town and
did much to locate missing family after the War.
