Heute jähren sich zum 84. Mal die #Novemberpogrome. Wir erinnern aus diesem Anlass an Käthe und Adolf Maass (hier auf ihrem Hochzeitsfoto von 1911), die am 1942 nach #Theresienstadt deportiert, von dort 1944 weiter nach #Auschwitz verschleppt und dort ermordert wurden. Ein🧵. Image
Adolf Maass, geb. am 9.10.1875, war Kaufmann und Jurist. Nach seinem Abitur trat er als Lehrling in das Bremer Stammhaus der Spedition Kühne + Nagel ein. 1902 wurde er von Firmengründer August Kühne zum Aufbau einer neuen Niederlassung nach Hamburg entsandt.
Unter Maass’ Leitung wuchs die Hamburger Zweigstelle rasant. 1910 wurde er Teilhaber, 1928 wurde ihm ein Anteil von 45% am Unternehmen zugesprochen. Damit war er der größte Anteilseigner von Kühne + Nagel.

Unique discovery at @AuschwitzMuseum‼️

Inside a child's shoe, personal information of its owner – a Czech Jewish girl, Věra Vohryzková – was found. We also identified a registration photo of her father & a suitcase that belonged to her uncle.…
Věra Vohryzková was born in January 1939. She was deported to Auschwitz from #Theresienstadt ghetto in December 1943 together with her mother, Štěpánka, and her two years older brother, Jiří. They all perished in the camp.
Věra's father, Max Vohryzek, an owner of a large knitting factory in Dačice, perished in the camp earlier, in July 1942. His camp photograph and a document confirming his death survived and are preserved in the Museum Archives.

Today's announcement that @mbachelet of @UNHumanRights will visit the region of the Chinese genocide, Xinjiang (East Turkestan), in May, suggests that the UN has folded in the face of Chinese dictates for a #Theresienstadt-style pretend visit.…

The Chinese authorities has consistently denied and obfuscated all the facts about their genocide, staging and controlling every visit by outsiders. It's who they are -- and there is no chance they will halt this behavior for @MBachelet.…

Make note: Any witnesses or interviewees produced for Bachelet by the genocidaire authorities, will be strictly controlled by them, without exception, and under duress, as to what they will say or admit, on pain of death.

Here is how it works:…

(1/6) On my daily walk I just 'stumbled' over 2 new Stolpersteine here in Gouda.
The first is Basia (Basje) Austeiczer-Udler. She was born on 15-09-1872 in Kosmin (Poland) and was married to Max Austeiczer, born 22-07-1870 in Starokonstantinov (now Ukraine) who died in 1932.
(2/6) They had 2 daughters. Berta, born 25-07-1898 and Schrifa, born 06-07-1896. Both were born in Starokonstantinov.
In 1910 the family came to Rotterdam and lived there on several places. Schrifa, died 23-05-1935.
In 1943 Basje and Berta lived in Gouda.

Basje probably was in #Westerbork from 25-03-1943. Berta survived the war and maybe she tried to help her mother via her job. On Basjes Jewish Council Card(s) it says that the vice president of the Rotterdam court tried to get her on the...

the traditional but not #orthodox current in #Judaism. She was born in August 1902 as the daughter of an #Orthodox #Jewish peddlers in Berlin's barn district. Jonas is deported to #ghetto #Theresienstadt north of #Prague on November 1942.
During the #Shoah, Jonas in #Theresienstadt encourages her fellow prisoners. On December 12, 1944, she is murdered in the #exterminationcamp #Auschwitz. The knowledge of the fate of Regina Jonas is due to a Protestant theologian, the German Katharina von Kellenbach.
