Primarily to the concentration camp Neuengamme, which I have visited together with my son during the course of a school project. At the information desk, I received word that there were many documents left related to my family, of which copies were mailed to me shortly afterwards. The documents were found in the basement of the Israelite hospital in Hamburg. They were exposed to water for a long time as Dr. Garbe (Director of the memorial) reported. They were documented and scanned. I extend my further gratitude to the Stae Archive of Hamburg for the tremendous patience they have had with me. Further to the federal archives in Berlin for the fact that they have made available the complete arrest and conviction files of my grandfather. Mr. Hes informed me that my grandfather deserved a stumbling block. He remained persistant and asked again and again how far my research had gone and at last it can be reported that my grandfather's stumbling block was inaugurated in April of 2013. I am also thankful for the work of the Deichstraßengesellschaft which has made the biography available to the Museum for the history of the German Jews in Hamburg where it will serve students studying history. I want to thank Mrs. Rosendahl for the fact that she corrected my biography drafts numerous times. She writes the biographies for the stumbling blocks in Neustadt (Hamburg), where no more living family members exist or where the family lives abroad. Also thank you very much to Mr. Vacono of the Altonaer archive, he is responsible for my research ideas. And there are still many other places and people to whom I owe gratitude, but this would go beyond the scope of discussion. I am deeply moved by the fact that there were so many people willing to help. Some of the people performed their work as volunteers.
They have earned a big
