I heard from the Holocaust Survivors Museum on my inquiry from two years ago. They sent me numerous photos of files on my grandfather (my father’s father).
Learned he was interned in Auschwitz in April 1941 two months before my father was born. Doing much research now with new information. Hoping to find more. If you have any contacts, recommendations, etc. for tracing victims of the Holocaust please comment and I will contact you. Welcome contact with anyone that can translate German or Polish.
My most personal search to date. My father died not ever knowing his own father, or what happened to him. I am determined to find him – even knowing I will find a grave.
And yes, I realize my own experience, my daughters lack of desire to know me, fuels my desire to some degree to help my Dad find his Dad – despite them both being deceased. My daughter may not want to know her history but my Dad wanted to know his and never did.
I am going to find him for you, Daddy.
