I recently found a treasure trove of letters (1932-39) written to my late father from his parents. Several were from his father, Wolf Aron “Wilhelm” Stern. All my dad ever said was that when the Nazis came into Vienna, his dad went “east, to see if he could find a safer place for them.
My dad said his father had been born in Dolina (or Drohobycz), but I’ve found no documentation of that. These newly found letters reveal that he was in Stanislawow. The return address was Halicka 28 / 6, Stanislawow.
I found the 1939 census data which listed a man by my great grandfather’s name, Hersch Stern, at that same address. [Stanislawow index full Jews-07-07-2018.xlsx ] (Wolf Aron “Wilhelm" Stern was not listed.)
Hersch had been wed to Chane Feige Hass who, I think, died some years earlier. She was the daughter of Shlomo HASS and Chany WEINREB (WINELEAF) probably of Drohobycz.
My dad was a SHOA survivor, and, like so many others, did not talk about the past.
I do know that my grandfather Wolf Aron Stern had siblings:
Dawid wed to Basia / Bertha Willgot
Bernhard wed to Terri ?
Anything you find would be priceless.
