Kanth near Breslau, Silesia ( now called Katy Wroclawskie)

I was told that between the world wars, there were 4 Jewish families living in this small town, 15km on the railway line from Breslau,
My PGPs , Adolf and Frieda STEIN,with their 3 children.  They had a men's outfitters business and lived above the shop.  The 3 children moved to London and Los Angeles.  
Dr Heidenfeld was a family doctor.  He lived there with his wife and 2 daughters.  One daughter, Hortense, died in London last year aged nearly one hundred.  
Another family was called Jungmann.  Another may have had a shoe shop. 
Can anyone help with information on the last 2 families ?

https://www.mappingthelives.org/ shows 15 people living in Kanth in 1939 (not all of them Jewish). None of them have the surnames you mention. Jewish Families include DRYENFURTH, GAPPE, HOFFMANN, LOEWENSTEIN & TICHAUER. Obviously, anyone who left before May 1939 was not included in the census.

I hope this helps,

 Didn't know of that website.  Don't know why my PGPs weren't listed AS THEY were there until ghettoised and then deported in 1942.  

After posting, I did find some Jungmanns on the improved Yad Va'shem website.  But of course they were murdered.  
When I have some enforced rest, from tomorrow onwards ie surgery,, i'll look further at the names you found.  Longer term aim is to install STOLPERSTEINE.  
Thanks so much,

hi,
each town everywhere decides if they would allow Stolpersteine or not.
