Alfred & Pauline Katzenstein

Pauline Katzenstein was Oma Julchen's first cousin. She was the daughter of Oma's uncle & aunt, Bernard Baruch & Jette Gutmann. Bernard was the brother of my mother's grandfather, Meier Gutmann. Pauline & Alfred Katzenstein were deported from Halle/Saale to Sobibor on June 1, 1942, and died 2 days later. They had lived in Eisleben and moved to Halle/Saale 2 weeks prior to their deportation. This information and also the image here came from Eisleben resident Sebastian Funk. The Katzensteins were survived bt 2 daughters, Erna & Kathe.

Alfred & Pauline Katzenstein were on the same transport as Hannacha Cohn who also perished on 6/3/1942.
