Frau Fritz Wassermann

1944 Kalisch  (trimmed)

These 52 pictures came in one package from an Ebay purchase in 2006.

Sorting them was a chore. Fortunately most of them are dated and some have locations noted. The name Frau Fritz Wassermann occurs only once but it is on the reverse of a passport picture along with what appears to be the Date of Birth: 20.11.19. The pictures date up through 1958 and one that is possibly 1974. She lived in nazi Germany.

Note, originally I thought the name was "Bassermann" because of unfamiliar script.
What can you tell about her story?

These photographs were originally presented here back in 2007 as a slide show. The slide show script stopped working properly recently so the page has been revised to a scrolling page of all of the photographs.

Some time back, LOST GALLERY looked for Frau Wasserman on but found nothing conclusive. A Hans Helmut Wilhelm Fritz Wassermann was found at about the right age born in the right place in Germany, but nothing else was found about him.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
