Re: tracing a German listed in the Kindertransport #germany


Thank you! I've already tried World Jewish Relief; it asks for the inquirer's relationship with the person named, and then it requires the inquirer to name a living person--whcih I can't do. My "Hans Ulrich Meyer" was only 13, and therefore isn't the person of the same name who was interned. In 1947, he changed his name to Kenneth William Knight and was naturalized 14 May 1947. Under that name, he is listed in the Edinburgh Gazette on 20 June 1947 as serving in His Majrest's Forces in Campbelltown, Argyllshire, Scotland; I haven't been able to access his military records yet. A person with his changed name and Hans Ulrich Meyer's birth date died in Surrey in 2002.
