Seeking Australian family of the late ANN LEIGH (born Hania Helfgott)


Carole Shaw
 

I would like to contact the relatives of Ann Leigh who was born HANIA HELFGOTT on 20 Aug 1936 in Piotrkow Tribunali, Poland.  She is a cousin of Sir Ben Helfgott and Mala Tribich of London.  She was liberated from Bergen Belsen with Mala and her mother, Irene Helfgott, on 15 Apr 1945 and later settled with Irene in Australia, where she married and lived in the Melbourne area.  She died a few years ago.  She had at least two sons, one of whom is Philip.

 Many thanks for any leads

Apologies as I didn't note the name Leigh. There are 4 P.Leigh's listed in the state of Victoria, of which Melbourne is the capital. This might be a start.
