Paula Rosenberg was the sister of my grandfather Karl Pfifferling.

Paula Rosenberg was my mother’s aunt and Opa Karl’s sister. Her husband was Julius Rosenberg. They had 3 children Rudy, Alice, and Lotte. In August of 1942, my mother's aunt and uncle, her cousin, Lotte, Lotte's husband Bertold Steinberg, and their little girl Marion all perished in the gas chambers of the Treblinka and Auschwitz Concentration camps. Rudy emigrated to Chile and Alice to Baltimore. This is all mentioned in the story that my mother wrote. I have received a letter from Pia Rosenberg of Fredericia, Denmark which states: In letters from family is written that Julius and Paula were deported to Treblinka. According to Yad Vashem Transport List, Julius and Paula were taken from Theresienstadt to Treblinka in September 1942. Lotte, Bertold, and Marion Steinberg were in South France. Hans Pfifferling, Opa's nephew tried to get papers for them, so that they could come to America. Hans managed to get the papers, but unfortunately, to late, the 3 of them were taken in France and deported to Auschwitz, where they died.
