Dear all, I'm looking for information about Josef Hermann Löwenthal, born 12.4.1858 in Jihlava (Iglau), Mähren. He is my Grand-grandfather. His parents: Maximilian Löwenthal (born in Rousinov, Raußnitz) and Theresie Rösy Oppenheimer (born in Mikulov, Nikolsberg, Südmähren). I don't have any idea, whether Josef Hermann had siblings nor under which circumstances he died 1918 (?). Thanks for any information. Kind regards

 Dear reader,

My name is Johan Goudsblom. I am an emeritus professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam, Holland. At present I am in the very last stage of preparation for the publication of a book in German, Gerdas Tagebücher, based on the diaries of Gerda Laqueur (1906-1945), the mother of my late wife. Gerda had a maternal uncle named Walter Loewenthal (* 1894) who played an important role in her life and diaries. He emigrated to England after 1936. I have not been able to trace his further whereabouts. The fact which I would like to know most of all is the year of his death. My request is: could you help me in my search for basic biographical data about Walter Loewenthal after his emigration to England?

Since the book is due to appear very soon, I would be most grateful if you could reply as soon as possible.

Sincerely yours,

Johan Goudsblom
