Recha & Hannacha Cohn

Recha & Hannacha Cohn

Hannacha (Hannah) Cohn was the youngest of the Jews of Halle/Saale to perish in the Shoah. Hannah, her mother, Recha, and her grandmother Tekla Cohn were deported from Halle/Saale to Sobibor on June 1, 1942. On the same transport to Sobibor were Oma Julchen's first cousin Pauline and her husband Alfred Katzenstein. Also, on the same transport were Julius Schwab (Sabine Schwab's grandfather) and his sister Selma Appel. All seven murdered two days later.
A total of 59 persons were on the same transport to Sobibor, 6/1/1942, and all were murdered on the same day, 6/3/1942.

From my mother's story:
The Cohn’s had a baby girl Hannah and I took care of her. I knew this family for many years. They had a variety wholesale business next to where we lived on Franke Strasse. Mr. Cohn left for England in June of 1939. His wife and little Hannah were to follow but it was too late and they perished like so many other people.

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".
