Lothar Adler

Lothar Adler

This is Selma & Herman's son, Lothar, with his wife Rosa (Rose) (geb Katz) and their daughter Lottie. Lothar was my mother's first cousin. The Adlers emigrated to New York. Lothar's brother, Alfred and his wife Margot emigrated to Argentina. Their daughter, Carola, has provided the photos in this album.

Rosa wrote to Edith Lehman, wife of the governor of New York State:
“Our daughter, Lotte, who is 2 ½ years old, does not have the possibility to leave Germany and I do not know what will happen to the child… Can you advise me or help me in any way to bring her to the United States? She is such a tiny child she surely cannot take a job away from anyone or do anyone any harm… If my child is forced to remain in Germany, I am sure that neither my husband nor I will ever see her again. She is our only child, and we naturally love her very dearly and the thought that any harm might come to her is unbearable for both of us.”
