German SIG #Germany KAHN Family of Idstein in Israel #germany
Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
A group of persons in Idstein intends to place Stolpersteine for the
victims of the Shoa. We start with the KAHN family and are interested in
information aboutthe children of Max Kahn (1875 Idstein “ 1947 New York)
and Bertha nee Hamburger (1873 Klein-Auheim “ 1938 Idstein).
Their youngest child was Kurt Kahn, born on 11.11.1912 in Idstein. In
March 1947, he lived in Kfar Monash, Palestine without a wife (according
to his father's obituary). On 07.05.1956, he signed a Page of Testimony
for Yad Vashem (for his brother Julius). Kurt lived in Ramat Gan with
his new name Gabriel Kahn or COHEN.
Kurt's / Gabriel's son may have been Josef Arie Kahn / Cohen in Rishon
L'Zion who signed a second Page of Testimony (for Julius) in 1999 as his
nephew. Since this line goes well into the present, we are quite hopeful
to establish contact. Please answer privately.
