Just a quick update on the family about whom I posted today. My dear friend and brilliant researcher Aaron Knappstein located Stolpersteine in Selters for Rosa Katzenstein Katz, her daughter Sara Katz Loew, and Sara’s husband Otto Loew. And the good news is that these are not Stolpersteine for people killed, but for people who escaped—to Argentina in 1936.
Here are their Stolpersteine:
Thank you SO much, Aaron! Now I will see if I can find anything about their lives in Argentina.
Further update: A search of the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry turned up burial records for Rosa and for her daughter Sara. Sadly, neither lived very long after escaping to Argentina. I did not find Otto there so perhaps he left Argentina after Rosa and Sara died.
FURTHER UPDATE! Well, from Aaron Knappstein’s discovery of the Stolpersteine, I now have found not only where Rosa and her daughter Sara died and are buried; I’ve also found Rosa’s daughters Sophie and Recha and their husbands. They all ended up in Buenos Aires and are buried in the same cemetery.
Aaron, you knocked down a big brick wall with one blow!
