JOSEPH family, Kirn, Germany > Colombia #general


Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Just learned that my husband's PGM's nephew, his wife, and 2 young
sons survived the Shoah by emigrating to Cali Columbia in 1937!

Does anyone know of a Sally (?Salomon) (b.1896) and Melitta Stern
Joseph and sons Erich (b.1925) and Rolf (b.1926) ?

Can anyone direct me to sources to check?

Barbara Mannlein asked for help with locating "Sally (?Salomon)
(b.1896) and Melitta Stern Joseph and sons Erich (b.1925) and Rolf
(b.1926)."

I found a website for Cementerio Israelita, the Jewish cemetery in
Cali: http://cementeriohebreodecali.com. You can search for headstones
under "búsqueda lápidas":
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/busqueda-lapidas

I searched for Melitta's name, since it is the most unusual, and found a
photo of her headstone: http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/248 . The
Spanish letters are a bit fuzzy in the photo, but it looks as if she was
born 8 June 1898 in Alzen (?) German, and died 28 July 1950.

Since the family's last name is Joseh in the cemetery records, I then
searched the surname under this spelling and found stones for "Sally"
(b. 16 Aug 1897 in Kirn Germany - d. 12 Mar 1961) at
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/242 and Erich (b. 25 May 1925 in
Oberstein, Germany - d. 23 Aug 1973 in Cali) at
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/157 .

Note that the surname is correctly spelled Joseph on Sally, Melitta, and
Erich's Spanish-lanugage stones, even though the name is misspelled in
all three online records. So don't forget to check first names in
databases in case a surname search yields nothing.

The Hebrew Aid Society (Sociedad Hebrea de Socorros) of Cali has an
English website at http://www.sociedadhebrea.com/en/index.html . And
there is a 2005 Spanish article on the Jews in Cali at
http://www.radiojai.com.ar/online/notiDetalle.asp?id_Noticia=12745 .

Good luck -- Buena suerte!

Thank you, Lisa!

I'm amazed. I searched for the Jewish cemetery, Cali, but in
English. I wonder if the younger brother, Rolf Joseph, is still
living. he would be about 90 yrs old. And I wonder if either
brother left descendants.

More hunting. thanks again.
