Following the query about Nissim BEHMOIRAS/BEHMORIAS (>from Brunn; mother's
maiden name BENBASSET/BENBASSAT) killed in 1917 (WW1) in Palestine and buried
on the Mount of Olives, Jerusalem, today I investigated the namesakes
living/buried in Vienna.

Leon BEHMOIRAS, born 14.5.1894 (or possibly 12.5.1894) in
Pilippopel/Philippople, Plovdiv in Bulgarian was single and a Kaufmann,
He moved between Vienna (arrived April 1921), Plovdiv, Berlin and Istanbul. In
1938 he was "abgemeldet" to Istanbul. There I lost the trail.

There is no sign of our family - Nissim BEHMOIRAS and his parents Jaques und
Gracia BEHMOIRAS, nee BENBESSAT/BENBASSAT in the Vienna archives. Probably they
lived semi-permanently in Brunb/Brno, Moravia

Furthermore, there are two BENBASSAT buried in Vienna:

Buchor age 49 died 24.02.1908 buried 26.02.1908 Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 Group 8
Row 57 Grave 49A
Elieser Mordechai age 58 died 28.12.1920 buried 30.12.1920
Zentralfriedhof Gate IV Group 3 Row 10 Grave 21

I checked their data and they were both >from Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
