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.

In the Siegerländer National Newspaper was on 12.11.1936 a very dirty article about Julius Rosenberg with the title" How a Siegener Jew treats his house employee bad" and the next day his son Rudolf was in the newspaper for some verbal fight in the traffic. (pleae see From the Siegen Gedenkbuch at the main page)
Before their deportation on 27th of July 1942 Mr and Mrs Rosenberg and Louis Rosenberg had a long goodbye for now talk with their neighbor Charlotte Wildtraut, she was then 20 years old. In the early 30´s she was babysitter for Marion. When the situation for the jews became worse Paula called the young neighbor and told her not to greet them (if they met on the streets) because she could get in big troubles if she did. Charlotte Wildtraut knew that the Businessman Albert Juncker married to the jew Jenny born Kahn, he bought a part of the property owned by Julius. It gave Julius and Family the opportunity to survive.
Julius and Paula were deported from Theresienstadt and sent to death in Treblinka.
After the sentence in The synagogue process in Autumn 1948 Alice Pese wrote the Court in Siegen and asked for that all the leading Nazi to be brought to justice.The supreme Court sent Alice an article from the newspaper (about how it ended).
