Seeking info on Ilse (nee: Jordan) Klappholz #germany #holocaust
Ilse Klappholz (nee: Jordan) was born on June 19, 1916 in Magdeburg.
She was married to my paternal uncle Alfred Klappholz and they had a son, Wolfgang Klappholz, born on March 5, 1934.
Ilse and Alfred were divorced in 1941 and because she was not Jewish, she left Wolfgang in Alfred's care.
Alfred remarried to Else (nee: Lecker) in 1942, and both he and Else perished at Auschwitz in 1944.
Wolfgang had been placed in an orphanage and was subsequently cared for by a foster fatheee, Gustav Dehne, and his wife. The last contact was in 1947.
To my knowledge, Ilse had no contact with Wolfgang after a few visits to the orphanage in 1944.
She reported that she lived with her new parents-in-law, the Fanghaehnel family in Erzgebirge, and returned to Magdeburg in 1945.
She last noted that in 1946 she had been living with the Pass family at Wiener Strasse 26, and working as a waitress in the Russian rations center in the Hncke barracks.
