From the post titled "Walter Jacobshn": In 1936, uncle Louis, Oma’s brother and his wife, Aunt Martha, came for their last visit to Germany. They lived at the time in Cincinnati, Ohio, and had made their visits every seven years. He had left Germany in 1890 at the age of 14. It was on this visit, that Uncle Louis wanted to take us with him to the USA. Irma and I both had widowed mothers and did not want to leave them behind.
In front of the duplex on Farwell Ave. (2630-2632) where both of our families lived. My father purchased the house on the GI Bill in 1946. The Jacobsohn's and Oma Dina moved to Shorewood in 1955. We moved to Whitefish Bay the following year. Our 2 new homes were only about a mile apart.
This was a Seder at the Jacobsohn home in Shorewood. From left to right: me Gary, Harold, Peter, my father Erich, Uncle Walter, Tante Irma, Oma Dina, my brother Dennis, and my mother Hilde.
