Haus Pfifferling Wanfried

Haus Pfifferling Wanfried

Thomas Beck has sent me this photo of the house of my great grandparents Sander & Emile Pfifferling in Wanfried. Sander Pfifferling also had his cattle business here in the stable behind the house. Opa Karl's sisters, Meta (1876) & Paula (1879), and brothers, Adolph (1878) & Julius (1883) were born in Wanfried. The family moved to Halle/Saale in 1888, the year Opa Karl was born.

Datterode

Datterode

This is the town in Germany where the Pfifferling family was originally from. In my mother's story she says that it is near the Fulda River. My mother's great-great-grandfather Sander, great-grandfather Joseph, who was one of 13 children, were born there. Their house, Brunnenstraße 24, is still known as “the 13-children house”), and grandfather Sander Pfifferling were all born there. Also, Opa Karl's oldest brother, Adolph was born in Datterode. The family then moved to Wanfried, and then again to Halle/Saale. The woman in the center at the bottom of this picture is Opa Karl's cousin Hilde Frank, who was born in Datterode and lived in Evanston, Illinois. Hilde's father, Albert Pfifferling, and Opa Karl were first cousins.This picture was taken when Hilde visited Datterode in 1969. The other two women are Hilde's sister Ilse Pfifferling, who emigrated to Argentina, and Christine Ronshausen, who lived in Datterode. Thomas Beck of Datterode identified them for me.

Photos: Opa Karl's first cousin, Albert Pfifferling, and Albert's daughter, Hilde Frank.

Adolph Samenfeld

Adolph Samenfeld

My grandfather is in the Middle. Oma's father, Isaak Heinemann, is to his right. I think it is possible that the man to the left of Adolph is his brother Moritz Samenfeld who was deported to the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 were he died.

Adolph Samenfeld was exposed to the nerve gas that was used during the Great War. He was in fact, a member of "Konigliches Kommando des Oldenburg Infanterie Regiments Nr. 91".
