Alfred Marburg and Rena Marburg nee Stern
« on: Friday 18 January 19 13:10 GMT (UK) »
Hello Rootschatters
I'm looking for the parents of someone who came to England on the Kinder transports.
Suzanne Mayberg born 30/8/1935 died 11/12 1940.
I can find plenty about her when she got to England but little about her family from Prague,Czech republic.

Alfred Mayburg 29.9.1907-6.9.1943 seems to have four siblings

Frederick who died 8.9.1942 age 27
Ing Ernest died 15.5.1944 age 37
Rosa
Liza

I'm not getting anywhere fast in tracking down the siblings or the Stern family.
Any ideas appreciated

Sorry about the spelling.
It is Marburg
I keep doing that.

Thank you for the documents.
They are the right couple and it's lovely to have photos.

Me again
It looks like the family came from Rymarov and then father Wilhelm moved to Prostejov in 1930.
I'm trying to find more on the sisters /daughters Rosa and Lisa
What would Rymarov and Prostejov come under in the Czech archives.
I keep putting the places in the search box and nothing comes up.

Puzzled

Hello
Just an update in case anybody is curious.
Turns out Rosa born 1910 and Alicia 1913 both survived the Holocaust and married a Mr Kollmann and Mr Salner.
So some good news for a change.

Hi
Suzanne Marburg died in the house where I have lived since 1983 - 167 Swanshurst Lane, Moseley, Birmingham (although it was rebuilt after the war).  I became aware of her tragic story some 10 years ago. I visit her grave every year at the Unitarian chapel in Wythall, some three miles away. I have researched her family and am trying to establish if there are any living relatives, however distant. Do you have any information which we can share?

Hello
Yes I'm the lady Nina asked to look into this .I've given the info to my friend who is her friend at the chapel and it will be on it's way to you.
But in the meantime here's a quick summary of what I found.

Wilhelm and Ida Marburg had five children.Ida died between 1915 and 1921.Wilhelm was a kaufmann or business man in Romestadt or Rymorov in Czech.The family spoke German.Wilhelm hired a housekeeper  after his wife's death to look after the children.He himself died in 1943  in a camp.
The eldest child  Ing Ernest was born 8.4.1906 and married a Greta Spitz and had a son Raoul .Ernest was a chemist in Svitany and moved to Prague after the Germans annexed the Sudatenland  in 1938.
The whole family died in the concentration camps.
Second was Alfred Marburg born 29.9..1907 who married Irene Stern in 1934 and was Suzanne's father.He worked in agriculture and forrestry and the once again moved to Prague in 1938  ,this time from Romestadt.
As you know both him and Irene died in the Holocaust.Photos of the two of them are again at Geni.com or you can go to www.holocaust.cz/em/database.
Third son was Friederich Konrad Marburg born 6 Feb  1915 who was a chauffeur in Prague and married to a Marie Landsberger. Her two sisters, Eva and Franziska,  survived the war and have put photos of the couple  on line at geni.com. He was called Gandhi.They both died in the camps.
The sister in laws are also on the same website and heritage .com (which I can't get onto because I don't have a sub).

That leaves Alfred's two sisters.
Rosa Marburg born 25.7.1910 was a survivor of Terezenstadt  and went on to marry a Pavel Kollman.
Alice/Alicia Marburg born 13.8.1913 was in Seved Camp and seems to have been liberated in 1944 .She gave her previous address as Nitra. She was called Lisa .She then married a Mr Salner and had one child.

It looks like Rosa's daughter and granddaughter have put their family tree on Geni.com.
I'm not going to repeat the few details on there because I'm not sure if they both are alive or not.
The granddaughter does look to be alive and living in Prague.If she is the same person I found then she is a Disability rights campaigner and film maker.
There is a way to contact the family through Geni.com and hopefully they will confirm they are the 'right 'ones.

There are other trees of the brothers both on Geni .com and Wikitree so presumably some connection to the people who posted them.
Irena's sister Eva and her husband Adolf  and child Josef are also on there.The nearest surviving relative on that side is the niece of Adolf Behavy a Edith Dasch born 1912 who went to London and then to  Canada.It seems she had no children and her tree is put on there by her husband's family.

There was a brother in law of Marie Landberger,(Friedrick's wife)who made it to England and was in Leamington Spa c 1945 . Dr  Zedenek Belsky born 1907 .He was  asking for the rest of his household including Freiderich and Marie to be evacuated to England ,but I have no details of him after that.

All the best .

Hi Ciderdrinker
Thanks very much for your reply and the extra information of which I was not aware. So we have a mutual connection in Nina. She was with me yesterday and we were actually discussing your posts.
She is going to do more research and we can share any new info.
Best wishes
