The fate of a Knoche family in Germany
I saw the messages in this forum.
I am a woman from the Netherlands.
An aunt of my mother was married to Ernst KNOCHE. He
was a professor of german-jewish origin. I think
that he came to Holland before WW2 because
of the rise of Hitler. They met each other at a school
for philosophy in Holland and did not have children.
During World War Two Ernst KNOCHE was captured by the Germans while walking on the street and send to concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland, where he died.
During the sixties my mother got a letter from the
German office of smart-money for war victims.
(They called it the "Wiedergutmachungsveramt" in
Berlin, i think). In Germany they had not found any relatives of the KNOCHE family, which could mean that
none of them had survived the holocaust. A cousin or nephew of Ernst Knoche should have been Paul EHRLICH, the man who
discovered the red and white blood corpuscles.
