The Aufbau / Obituary

The Aufbau / Obituary

This is the obituary in the Aufbau for Julius & Paula Rosenberg. There is an error as they died in Treblinka. Their daughter, Charlotte, and her family were to die in Auschwitz. All five perished in 1942.

Paula Rosenberg was my mother’s aunt and Opa Karl’s sister. Her husband was Julius Rosenberg. They had 3 children Rudy, Alice, and Lotte. In August of 1942, my mother's aunt and uncle, her cousin, Lotte, and her husband Bertold Steinberg, and their little girl Marion all perished in the gas chambers of the Treblinka and Auschwitz Concentration camps. 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. Aunt Lore said that Opa Karl also worked on getting the papers but did not say anything at the time so as not to get anyone's hopes up. Hans managed to get the papers but unfortunately too late the 3 of them were taken in France and deported to Auschwitz.

Deutsche Schule De Valdivia: 1958

Irene Rosenberg is in the center of the seven Children in the middle row.
This is the German school in Valdivia, Chile where Irene's parents sent her. Irene has told me that she was the only Jewish student at this school and that it was "full of holocaust deniers". Her parents sent her to this school because should anything happen to them she would be able to communicate with the relatives who lived in other countries.
