Marriage of Moritz Klein and Irene Roth
(Mexico City, ca. 1933)
Around 1933, someone told Marcos about “a nice Jewish girl” who lived in Hungary, who would be perfect for him. He wrote to her and they decided to get married. Irene Roth, who was born in Szatmar, Hungary (currently Satu Mare, Romania), took a ship to Mexico to spend her life with a man whom she never had met. Marcos Klein died in Mexico City on November 6, 1959. H-SIG researcher Marcus (Moshe Meir) Frid is the grandson of Marcos Klein and is named in his memory.
