South Africa: German Jewish refugees

Readers interested in locating family from Germany that survived the Holocaust should view this site. It focuses on German Jewish refugees to Johannesburg, South Africa.

There are 35 biographies, photographs and more information about these refugees and their communities. The material was part of an exhibit, "Seeking Refuge."

Among the names (there are many more): Auerbach, Benedick, Blumenthal, Czapski, Gerschlowitz, Giesenow, Grunebaum, Heinemann, Levi, Lowenstein, Meyer, and Wreschinski.

Thanks to Ann Rabinowitz for this pointer.
