The Kornitzer family in Rijeka, Fiume, Croatia #names
R. Reuven K. Koffler
I am trying to find every trace possible, of my family members, who were called Kornitzer and lived in Fiume, Rijeka, Croatia.
My grand grandmother was Cecilia Kornitzer - Pollak, her brothers Maks, Milan and Eugen, and sisters Stela, Melanija and Irena.
I would be most grateful, if anybody could shed light on the destiny of these people.
Many thanks in advance.

I suppose you already searched the Arolsen archives. Some of the names are there but they were either from Hungary or Vienna.

A search at The JewishGen Unified Database for surname KORNITZER (using a phonetic search on the surname) and town Rijeka find this:
Rijeka / Croatia
The same search for POLLAK and town Rijeka finds several people with that surname buried in Rijeka.
One mention of POLLAK in Hungarian marriages, and one in Hungarian deaths.
And, several people named POLAK / POLLAK at Yad Vashem in connection to town Rijeka and Fiume.
Good luck in your search,
