The Chemnitzer merchant Berthold Steinberg (15.7.1903) and his wife, my mother's first cousin, Charlotte Steinberg (geb. Rosenberg) (22.4.1909), and their daughter Marion Steinberg (16.12.1930). Charlotte was the daughter of my Opa Karl's sister Paula.
Berthold Steinberg was from 1930 co-owner of the company Burghardt & Becher, a business for cookware and household items. The shop was placed in Poststrasse 31, the family lived in the same house. The family emigrated in July 1939 to France. The "Eheleute" (married couple) and their daughter were later on arrested and interned in first at Camp de Casseneuil then to Drancy and from there on the 9th of September they were deported to Auschwitz. After the war the court Karl-Marx l " declared them for dead"

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, too late, the 3 of them were taken in France and deported to Auschwitz, where they died.
