Bukofzer / Oppenheimer in France FRENCH records #france

David Selig

   Hi Jewishgenners

I live in Paris.
I seek information on the two following people :

born 26.11.1897, Bad Mergentheim, Germany
who married (as 2nd marriage)
b. 22.05.1892, Filehne (Wielen) Prussia.

Fritz moved to Paris.  I believe it may have been in 1937.
Marta also moved to Paris, but I am not sure of the date.
At latest, May 1938 (this was recorded in her residence card in Mannheim from where she emigrated)  BUT it is possible it was earlier.
She had a sister Meta KAUFMANN, who moved to Paris in 1935.

Had Marta already met and MARRIED Fritz in Germany, or was that in Paris?
They went to the South of France at the start of the War.
It is possible they were in Marseille.
The Kaufmann family were photographed there, in ca. 1941.

ALl these returned to Paris, I believe when the South was occupied.
Fritz and Marta survived, continued living there for many years.
The Kaufmann's were denounced and deported in 1944.
I hope to perhaps get some answers, from an archive with great history, known as the
"Fonds de Moscou".  (Moscow)

It was the general overall Police security police file (Sûreté) arching from 1920's until ? 1944? on all foreigners entering France.
The Germans seized it, then the Russians, who returned it top the French Archive Nationale in 1990's!
Does anyone have other sources that could help?

(I have already checked :
- Paris phone books, Fritz and Marta remained ex-directory as far as I could tell...
- the Paris census of 1936
- some of the Paris marriage registry , which has to be searched for each arrondissment...

Thank you for any help
Best wishes to all

Paris, France
