I Need information about a judge in Berlin named Seligsohn whose son born 1924 was named Max
What is the one specific piece of information you would most like to know?: This family escaped from Germany into France at Metz in 1935 or 1936, I want to know if this family survived WW II
Hello,Welcome and thanks for your question. What was the name of the person you are asking about? Do you know approximately when he was born and where? We can research only one fact about one person per question.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
The name is Max Seligsohn, born 1924 in Berlin
Thank you. I will see if I can find any information about him.
Relist: Incomplete answer.
I don't quite see how an answer can be incomplete when you haven't received one yet.
Research takes time, and we also need to sleep. There is also a considerable time differential between Israel and the United States. I will write off the time I've already spent on research on this, and opt out since I haven't had enough time to do the proper research.
Good luck with your family.
I cancel my former reply.
I'm waiting for your reply. I understand research take time and you also need to sleep. I apologize to you.
I've checked all the online information I can find and the last listing I see for a Max Seligsohn (b 26 Nov 1923 in Berlin) was in France where he was listed from April to August 1942, along with Joachim Seligsohn (b 31 Aug 1886) and Jeanne (nee Sternheimer) Seligsohn (b 24 Jun 1892). I cannot confirm that this is your Max and his parents, but if it was, I don't see them in any other online database. I also checked alternative spellings, jewishgen.org, etc.
There is no record of any of the three of them entering the United States.
I'm sorry that there was no more information available online.
All the best,

They are, Max and his parents ! Well done, and thanks. Through your research, I also know today that Max and his father were carried by train number 50 from Drancy to Maidanek on March 4.1943 - his mother by train number 62 from Drancy to Auschwitz on november 20.1943.I'm shocking and moved. Thanks.
You're so very welcome! I just love it when I find something about a family that is useful to the customer, although it doesn't sound from the destinations of those trains that the family made it all the way through that horrible war.
