Re: Looking for orphaned Holocaust survivor Albert Rotszpan (name change upon adoption in 1948) who went from Belgium to New York #usa #holocaust


Hello Reinier

Not very helpful but nevertheless...

I took a look at the manifest arriving from Brussels - this was not a ship but a SABENA flight arriving in La Guardia Airport in NY.
According to this record he held a Polish passport, not a Belgian one. See attached.

There is a link in the USHM: (List of children at Children's Home Wesembeck-Ophem [sic], 200 Choe de Malines / submitted by the World Jewish Congress, 1835 Broadway, (ID: 31011)). Maybe you can see if the World Jewish Congress has any records of adoptions.

Good luck on your search,
