Berlin, Germany


StÖszel - Brasch Family


One small branch of my family, Lotti Gusta STÖSZEL and her husband Max Daniel BRASCH, lived in Berlin. 

Lotti was born in 1870 in Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary and her husband was born in Berlin and was a merchant. 

We don't know if they had any children.

From the Terezin Gedenkbuch they were deported to Theresienstadt on 9 Jul 1942 from Berlin, where their address was Eislebenerstr. 9 Berlin W50.  In 1939 their address was Oranienburgerstr. 39 in the Mitte borough.

Lotti was transported to Auschwitz on transport Ea on 16 May 1944. Max died in 1942 in Terezin of "enteritis". 

There is a Claims Conference case on Lotti, Code #109506, Document Code 207.

The Stolperstein (stumbling block) is outside the residence at Eislebenerstrasse 9. 

Though the stone doesn't refer to the BRASCH family, it is still of interest.
