Hello again Jenners.  Yes, I am looking to confirm the relation between
Erich and Danny, for whom, as yet, I have not found any official documents available.  i have a few newspaper clippings.  Thanks for any help...

On Ancestry I see a U.S. draft card dated March 3, 1947 for Daniel BLUMENTHAL, born Koenigsberg, March 23,1910. 

David lists his brother, Martin BLUMENTHAL, as the person who will always know his location. Both David and Martin had addresses in Manhattan (different address for each.)

Daniel worked at Cyclone Motor Corp. in Long Island City, NY.
