South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica RE: seeking my family in south africa - pitofsky or pytowski #southafrica

You did not mention the first names of those who might have gone to South
Africa and I am wondering if the family you found in Argentina knew what
happened to them? Perhaps the missing family went to Argentina as well
rather than South Africa or perhaps they went to Cuba as an alternative.

Did your family flee after WWII or before? If before, they would have had
to do it prior to 1939 when the last ships >from Europe came to SA bringing
fleeing Jews. One of my relatives was on the last ship.

The name and all of its variants does not appear in the South African
National Archives and another respondant has told you they did not find the
name in several other sources. The only other thing I could suggest is that
you post an inquiry in one of the South African Jewish newspapers and see
what happens.

Good luck!
