Don and Debby Painter <painter@...>
 

I've come across some more information on my family, but again have hit a brick
wall and could use some help. I am including below as much information as I have
on hand.

My Great-Grandfather, Mosiek Srul "Max" KLINGER b. October 11, 1860 in Lodz d.
April 24, 1934 in Dortmund, Germany, son of Nuchem and Sura Rywka (nee GOLDSZTAJN)
KLINGER* married wife #1 Chana (Ewa/Eva) Marja (Maryjem/Marion" ROZENCWAJG
(ROSENSWEIG) b. February 10, 1862 in Lodz d. April 4, 1900**

His brothers were:
Eljasz KLINGER b. October 19, 1852*
Abram KLINGER b. June 13, 1864 married Frajndla PALUCH b. 1861*

Mosiek and Chana's children were:
Nuchem "Nathan" KLINGER** b. September 16, 1884 Lodz d. May 01, 1949 Strasbourg
mrd. Esther JAKUBOWICZ b. November 07, 1891 Lodz d. December 08, 1969 Strasbourg
Ajdla "Olga" KLINGER** b. March 27, 1887 Lodz d. Bet. 1940 - 1945 Paris mrd. Emil
WETTER December 25, 1887 d. ?
Elias KLINGER** b. March 11, 1891 Frankfort d. between 1974-1975 in Luque,
Paraguay mrd. #1 Rose JAKUBOWICZ (sister to Esther) mrd #2.Elvira ORTIZ b. about
1909 d. 1988 Luque, Paraguay
Germann KLINGER** b. February 24, 1896 Zurich, Switzerland d. ?
Johanna KLINGER** b. August 03, 1897 Strasbourg d. September 03, 1897 Strasbourg
Jakob KLINGER** b. February 12, 1898 Strasbourg d. September 10, 1898 Strasbourg
Heinrich KLINGER** b. March 21, 1900 Strasbourg d. March 24, 1900 Strasbourg

The son of Nuchem and Esther, Salomon KLINGER marries Fanny ROSENSWEIG.
Her parents were Kudish b. 1872 Kochcice, Poland (Czechoslovakia) and Esther (nee
WEISS) b. 1876 Cepicscbela, Poland ROSENSWEIG. They both die in Zurich.

Her brothers and sisters were:
Lina ROSENSWEIG b. April 01, 1899 mrd Wolf Feivel (both perished in Auschwitz)
Mendel ROSENSWEIG b. 1900 Poland d. 1903 Poland
Jetty ROSENSWEIG b. July 21, 1904 Zurich d. 1997 Zurich mrd. Simon EHRENFRIED b.
January 10, 1895 Blenchin, Poland d. March 11, 1952 Strasbourg
Avraham Schau ROSENSWEIG b. September 01, 1905 Zurich d. March 27, 1966 Zurich
mrd. Paula RUBINSTEIN b. 1908 d. ? Israel
Regina ROSENSWEIG B. June 26, 1907 Zurich D. May 17, 1970 Mulhouse, France mrd.
Joseph NAUMBERG b. 1900 Poland d. 1978 Mulhouse
Sara ROSENSWEIG b. September 1908 d. ? mrd. Elie KORMAN b. ? d. ?
Osias ROSENSWEIG Abt. March 15, 1910 d. ? mrd. Heidi ?
Salomon ROSENSWEIG abt. 1914 d. January 13, 1992 Zurich mrd. Elfi MARINOLA b.? d.?
Berta (Berti) ROSENSWEIG b. Arpil 22, 1918 d. ? mrd. Helmut REICH B. ? D. ?

First, I am wonder if there is a connection between this Rosenweig family and the
first wife of my Great-Grandfather.

Next, Strasbourg Census records show Mosiek leaves Strasbourg on July 1, 1901 for
Kiel, Germany** and returns in July 26, 1914. However, family history as well as
German records show his next child, my grandmother, was born in Herscheim in 1905
and the next 4 children born in Strasbourg. Maybe I simply missed them, but I
found nothing in the Census records for the family during this period.

In the census records is mentioned wife #2 Anna Joskowitsch**. Family history says
she is the mother of all following children:
Lea Elizabeth KLINGER b. June 7, 1905 in Herscheim
Isador (Isidor) b. March 15, 1908 in Strasbourg
Johanna b. November 22, 1910 Strasbourg
Jacob b. May 3, 1912 in Strasbourg
Fanny b. August 7, 1913 in Strasbourg
and
Hermann b.November 4, 1921 in Dortmund

However, a deportation list for Dortmund dated November 19, 1941 shows Nisle
KLINGER, nee LEVY b. August 22, 1881 as living with Johanna, Isador and Hermann in
the "Jewish Section" of Dortmund in 1941 as well as having lived with the family
in 1938. Did Anna pass away and Mosiek marries Nisle? If so, when did Anna pass
away and where?

I have written the Census archives but they say they don't do research. Perhaps
someone could help me locate the remaining records? Is there also someone near or
in Dortmund that might be able to help me there? I have written the "City Hall" a
couple of times but no reply. Also, have no more information on Sura Goldsztajn
nor the brothers of Mosiek. Are any of these names familiar to any one out there?

Thanking all in advance,
Debby Gincig Painter

seeking fate of half-siblings REIBER/KALTER #germany

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am searching for the fate of the half-brother and half-sister of a
relative of mine. After all this time, their names have only now become
known, making this search possible. If they are still alive, they would be
about 70-75 years old today. If you have any information that can help in
this search, please let me know. Here is what little we know:

Salomon KALTER (b. 1899, Lancut, Poland) was married first to Regine REIBER.
They had two children, Nellie and Avie or Avic, Nellie a few years older
(judging >from photographs). In 1910, Salomon was living in Lancut, and the
Stadtarchiv Wien indicates that he moved to Wien (Vienna, Austria) around
1913. On 13 Aug 1936, Salomon left Wien for Zagreb, Croatia, and eventually
emigrated to Brazil, where he remarried and had a son, who now lives in
Israel. According to the Stadtarchiv Wien's records, Regine REIBER did not
live in Wien with her husband, but stayed in Poland, though this son's
recollection is that Regine and Nellie and Avie/Avic lived in Wien at the
start of WWII. Obviously, they were in contact at some time after Salomon
moved to Wien. One photograph of the children has the caption March 1936,
Leipzig - this was taken at a photo booth. The latest dated photograph is a
posed portrait of the children dated February 1940. The latest dated
photograph showing their mother Regine REIBER is dated 1936. Her fate is
also unknown. No other places are listed on the photographs.

I am contacting the USHMM and Stadtarchiv Leipzig to see if they have any
information. I must stress that I do not know whether the family lived in
Leipzig, they may have only been passing through.

Thanks very much for your help. Best regards,
