Can anyone please tell me if there was at some time a
South African ambassador or diplomat to Israel with
the surname LOURIE or LURIE or LAURIER or some other
variation of this surname?
There's a story in our family that such person was
related to us. One branch of my father's family
(originating in Shavl and/ or Gordz in Lithuania) went
to South Africa in about 1895. One brother (Abraham
LAURIER) went to Paris, another brother (Isaac LEWIS)
went to England, and a third brother (name unknown)
went to S Africa.
Thank you in anticipation.
