INTRO - Researching BERENZ Family #germany

Edna Berkovits <berkovitse@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this list serve (1 week), though I have been on the JewishGen
list for almost a month. That's when I started researching my father's
side of the family, and have had wonderful luck finding a distant relative
who has done much research for many years, and has sent me an amazing
family tree.

After this wealth of information came my way, my mother expressed an
interest in finding out more about her father's family, since she and her
middle sister are the only ones who are known to have survived the
Holocaust >from that side of the family. Their older sister was Ilse
BERENZ. Last week I wrote to a Friedrich BERENZ in Freiburg (found the
address in the white pages of the Germany phone book), who may be related
through Max BERENZ (see below), and am hoping to get a response.

I read about the Theresienstadt Memorial Book in someone's letter to the
Goup, and wonder how to access it: My mother heard >from Erna MAYER's (sp?) mother, who did survive, that she had seen my grandmother, Emma
BERENZ,(born Weisbecker) in Theresienstadt.

My mother's email to me follows.

Thank you for any information you have.

Edna (Grunspan) Berkovits Teaneck, NJ

Also researching GRUNSPAN (Uhersky Ostroh, Czech Rep.; Wien); WEISBECKER

Since it is a snow day today and everything has been cancelled I'll try to
write down as much as I can remember.
I do not remember my grandparents first names nor do I know where they
were born. It is quite possible that my grandfather was born in Boenstadt,
I don't believe my grandmother was born there.
My father's older brother was Albert Berenz, born in Boenstadt, Germany,
date of birth unknown. He was married to Kitty Frank's sister and had two
sons. They moved in the 1930's to Holland, Kitty told me that my uncle
visited the United States >from there, but did not like it here and
returned to Holland. The family was deported and died in the Holocaust.

My father was either the second or third son. His name was Gustav Louis
Berenz (called Louis) born November 12, 1893 in Boenstadt. He died in the
Holocaust.

Leopold Berenz born in Boenstadt, date of birth unknown. He was not
married, moved in the 1930's to France, died in the Holocaust.

Max Berenz, born in Boenstadt, date of birth unknown (he was the youngest)
I believe his first wife's name was Kristel (she was not jewish) she
divorced him in 1936 or 37. I believe their children's names were Artur
and Isolde, they stayed with their mother. My uncle remarried, his second
wife's name was Erna Mayer, she came >from Darmstadt, they had twin boys
born approx. 1937-38, I saw them shortly before I left Germany, I do not
recall their names. They all died in the Holocaust.

I, as well as my sisters were all born in Boenstadt in the same house
where >my father and his brothers were born. My parents moved in either
1929 or 1930 to Assenheim where we lived until 1939.

I left Germany December 27, 1939 with a children transport via Italy and
arrived January 2, 1940 in Palestine. That's all for today. Love, Mom

Replying to Harold Lewin's query, Emma LAZARUS was born in New York City,
NY, on July 22,1849. She was the fourth daughter of Esther (NATHAN) and
Moses LAZARUS, a prosperous sugar refiner of Sephardic descent. In 1885,
she traveled to Europe with her sisters after their father died. She died
of cancer in New York City on November 19, 1887. Her sisters were Mary,
Annie, and Josephine.

Not my Sam Muskat #general

Laura M Gottlieb <lauragottlieb@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I inadvertently asked for and received the Social Security
application of the wrong Sam MUSKAT--i.e., of an individual who turned
out not to be related to me. The Sam MUSKAT whose application I have is a
self-employed man born in Russia but residing in Detroit, MI in 1958 when
he filled out this application. His parents were Norman MUSKAT and Fay
MARKMAN. If this person belongs in your family tree, please let me know
privately, and I will be happy to pass on the information to you.
