1 April

John C. Ashe and his daughter Daniella Frances, son and granddaughter of our good friend Herbert Ashe-Eschwege, Stamford, CT, USA. Both attended the first Seder.

John David Treumann, Chicago, grandson of Fritz Treumann, probably a son of Hans Treumann, whom I have failed to find even after searching for him for many years. Can any of my readers help?

Professor Bruno Brachmann (lately at the Humboldt University Berlin) and Dr. Elisabeth Brachmann-Teubner, lately in a leading position at the Federal Archive Sections in Berlin. I had the pleasure of showing them "Jewish" Bamberg and the cemetery. Without the help of Dr. Brachmann-Teubner in 1995, I could not have compiled the names of Bamberg victims of the Shoa on the six memorial panels in the Tahara house at the Bamberg cemetery, which she saw for the first time.
