Otto KRAUS of Newark, New Jersey #general

Paul Lewis <pmlewis6391@...>
 

I am searching for information about Otto Kraus. He lived in Newark, New
Jersey in the 1930's and 40's and owned Associated Food Stores.

He had a son who attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, New
York, and graduated in the late 1930's or early 1940's. He then joined the
Navy and served on the USS Yorktown. He was lucky enough to be off the USS
Yorktown just before it was sunk at Midway in June 1942.

Either Otto or his wife was related to a Bessie Waldman Klein who lived in
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

If you know anything about this family or their descendants please contact
me privately.
Thank you.

I wish to clear up a misconception that our ancestors were not fashionably
up-to-date. Yes, some were not. However, what they wore depended more on
the particular person, economic status and proximity to a large city.
But if you look on my website where it shows movies I have been in it
shows me formally dressed in a jacket and a hat similar to a bowler with
my twin. Well it was posed and I do not have a twin unless they are my
doppelganger. I also have pictures of women that look like they are
formally dressed and in fact it was just a wrap. AND we have all seen
pictures of someone in stocks.

Sometimes what you see just is not real.

Joyce Eastman
 

I want to express my thanks to all who replied to me privately regarding my
ARENDAR/HELFER research. The information was most interesting, as well as
enlightening and useful. Hopefully it will eventually lead me to answer the
question of the parentage of Mayer (Max) HELFER as well as define his
relationship to my paternal grandmother, Sime Bruche HELFER. Thanks again.

BOOK CITE - German Jewish Responses to Persecution 1933-1938 #germany

Lande
 

Just issued, Jewish Responses to Persecution, Vol.I, 1933-1938, by Juergen
Matthaeus and Mark Roseman, is the first of what will be a series of books.

This volume focuses on the immediate German Jewish response to Hitler's
assumption of power in 1933 through to the aftermath of Kristallnacht.

With its chronology and extensive quotation of letters and other documents
from this period, this book is well worth reading for anyone with a Jewish
family which resided in Germany in this period of time.
