« on: Sunday 01 April 18 02:18 BST (UK) »
Roland Kulhanek was born Aug 2 1936 in Germany, and died abt Feb 17 2016 in SW Suburban Chicago in Illinois, USA. He was the son of Willy Assenheimer (d. 1944)  and Berta Freida Kaess (1915-1992). Roland was raised as a child in Nazi Germany. He talked about picking the grapes near Benningen am Neckar, Germany. He took the name Kulhanek from his adoptive Father Vaslav/Vaclav Kulhanek (d. bef 1992).
  Within a few years after the war, Roland and his parents moved to Venezuela for six years.
They then relocated to the Midwest in America, in Illinois and Ohio. Roland settled down in Oak Lawn, Illinois and Orland Park, Illinois. He worked construction for many years. He used to poke fun at people and say, ‘Are you going to get there’?

Vaclav Kulhanek, Berta K Kulhanek, Roland Kulhanek, and Willi Kulhanek all arrived to the USA via the city of Miami before 1964. It is not clear whether they flew in or traveled by boat.
There are also naturalization records for Willy Kulhanek and Elsa Frieda Barmus, aka Elsa Kulhanek.
