So, I have these letters, and I am wondering what happened to this Austrian Jew and his family? Did they survive? The letters will be of use to teachers and students concerned with the Holocaust. I have scanned in the letters below in the order that Mr. Lobell had them grouped. If any of you can help me find information about Sigmund Schmahl, please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is information I have uncovered:
1. From the US Holocaust Museum
2. List of Jews that the Nazis gathered with Sigmund Schmahl's correct name, DOB, and address.
Mystery SOLVED; I received this from the HOLOCAUST MUSEUM in Washington, DC, after I inquired about Sigmund Schmahl: A preliminary search of the newly-arriving records of the International Tracing Service (ITS) seems to indicate that while Mr. Schmahl survived the War, he died in Italy on December 15, 1949, possibly in Naples. The surviving members of his family, his wife Hilde (born July 18, 1903) and daughter Herthe (born September 14, 1935) later emigrated to the United States via Bremen, Germany on September 23, 1950.
