Finding Edith Lewan who because she was 1/2 jewish escaped being murdered in Riga #latvia #holocaust #russia


I thought that all my family living in RIga had been murdered during the holocaust. Yesterday I discovered that my great aunt had had a child from a first marriage with a non jewish latvian man. While my great aunt Dora and uncle Abram and their daughter Lea perished, Edith survived. On Yad Vashem she appears as Edith Lewan jewish resident born on the April 27, 1920. The cousin whose autobiography we retrieved and who mentioned Edith said  that at the end of the war she was a secretary to a soviet general. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to find her. Best regards to all
