Looking for any links to jewish families leaving Germany in late 1930's
I am the granddaughter of Friedel Rose (born Fredrika Tendlau) who left Hamburg Germany in 1938 with her husband Paul Rosenstern with my father, Peter who was then 11 years old. Friedel was part of the Tendlau family and her sisters also made it to the United States either before or after WWII. Her sisters were: Emmy Weinberg and Anna Tendlau.
They were all sponsored by wealthy American relatives from the Carllebach family in New York.
I am looking for any information which would help me put together their stories of leaving Germany and starting a new life here. I know that Paul Rosenstern had to give up his business and that one of Emmy's children was interned in a prison camp in Australia.
I am interested in finding business records, immigration, sponsorship records or any other source material as well as any links to the family or family friends. If you know how to access any of these records, please let me know.
