SS New York

SS New York

On July 6, 1939 we were called to the American Consulate in Berlin. Our quota number was being called and our papers were ready to come to the United States. So, 4 weeks before the war broke out we sailed with the last German boat, the “ SS New York” to this country. On July 20th, 1939 we departed from Cuxhaven and arrived in New York on the 28th of July.
