My grandfather was Alvin Hanauer. He lived in Covington KY/ Cincinnati and had two children: my mother, Pat Hanauer and James Hanauer.

James Hanauer had two children:Jay Hanauer and Mark Hanauer. I believe Jay lives in Louisville, KY.

I understand you might have an email address for Jay and wondered if you could share it with me.

Thanks for the wonderful site about this part of my family and any help you can give me with Jay's address.

Dear David
This is about an archaeologist , Anglican priest and a photographer who's name was James Edward Hanauer who was born in Jaffa Palestine 1850 for a converted father and a British christian lady . He was an author of several books and made trips in the middle east and consultant for the first Arab political regime in Damascus after the Turks defeat in ww1 according to one of the documents which I obtained 1979. He was married and had children according to an autograph pertained his daughter with dates beginning 1896 and ending 1906 .I am wondering if there are descendants for this well known scholar in his era in the middle east,Europe and USA and well known for the followers of Islam , Christianity and Judaism

Dear Sir,
My name is Kelly Burns and I am the grandson of Linvil C. Kincaid, Pvt, USA. He, with your father was a member of the 397th Provisional AAA Battalion. I saw on the Army Unit History site that you have information on the unit. I know most of the story about the unit's landing at Normandy. However, I know almost nothing of the unit after that, besides the places they were. My Grandfather died in 1975, and I never got a chance to meet him. While he was alive he never spoke much of his time in Europe. Hoping you have some info you would be willing to share with me. If you could, please email me your reply at your convenience. Thanks!!

I'm interested in sharing info on Hanauers from the greater Dayton, OH area. A handwritten note from a deceased great-aunt lead me to conclude that Peter Hanauer (b.1813) was the great grandfather of my grandmother (Della Engel). I have a 1926 Hanauer family reunion photo that I will forward for posting and sharing.

In the summer of 1978 I had the privilege of listening in to a meeting between Bernard Cribbins, Michael Bentine, Bernard Hanauer and my father at Charterhouse in Bernard's humble home. Two of those men were just comedians to me up until that day and I was a little star struck as a 14 year old boy. What they discussed both frightened me and made me intensely proud. Long may we remain vigilant and alert for any resurgence of the horrors of the 30s and 40s. Don't let our children forget. All the best to the Hanauer family. Bernard was a quite remarkable man and profoundly influenced me.

Pfaffenheim: de nombreux Hanauer sont passés par là Voilà un patronyme bien représenté à Pfaffenheim mais dont l'origine reste énigmatique. Le nom de famille HANAUER est fortement représenté dans le coquet village viticole de Pfaffenheim. Il existe toutefois une importante souche du nom à Wittenheim. Mais dans l'état actuel des recherches, le lien avec le berceau de Pfaffenheim n'a pas encore pu être établi. Le nom de famille HANAUER tire son origine d'un toponyme, c'est-à-dire d'un nom de lieu. En effet, les "Hanauer" sont les habitants du lieu-dit "Hanau". Outre une ville située dans la province de Hesse, en Allemagne, ce nom est tr�s connu en Basse-Alsace, o� existait le fameux Comté de Hanau-Lichtenberg., qui comportait pas moins de douze bailliages, sept villes et quatre bourgs dans le secteur de Bouxwiller. Le Dictionnaire Historique et Biographique de la Suisse consacre quelques lignes à la famille HANAUER helvétique, une ancienne famille bourgeoise de Baden en Argovie. Par ailleurs, Henri HANAUER, un bourgeois de Biberach, portait en l'an 1460 les armoiries suivantes: "D'azur à une marque de maison d'or, accompagnée d'une fleur de lys et d'une croisette du même". Plus pr�s de nous, à Colmar, le livre des admissions à la bourgeoisie de la ville fait état d'un certain Jean HANOWER. La maison de ce dernier était attenante à la demeure de Laurent PIMPERLIN et à celle de Jean PIMPERLIN qui furent re�us bourgeois de Colmar en 1565 et 1574. La famille HANAUER est cotée d�s l'ouverture des registres pariossiaux de Pfaffenheim. Le 26 février de l'an 1661, le curé de l'époque, Jacques MEYER, originaire du canton de Lucerne en Suisse, baptisa Elisabeth, fille de Jacques HANNAUWER et Marie DANGEL. Jacques décéda en mars 1687, quelques jours avant son épouse alors âgée de 47 ans. Les armoiries de Pfaffenheim, commune o� de nombreux Hanauer ont vus le jour En 1674 et 1682 nacquirent plusieurs enfants de l'union de Jean HANNAUER et de son épouse Suzanne, dont le mariage n'a pas été célébré à Pfaffenheim. A ce jour, nous ne connaissons pas le lien de parenté entre Jacques et Jean HANAUER, peut-être sont-ils fr�res ? A la même époque, un certain Samuel HENNAWER convola en justes noces avec Cunégonde OSTERMEYER, de même qu'un dénommé Jean-Jacques HENNAWER prit pour femme Anne Maria DIRINGER. De nombreux enfants firent la joie de ces unions, enfants qui s'unirent avec des familles locales telles que les HASENBOEHLER, ZINCK, BIEHLER ou encore HARTMANN. Certains descendants quitt�rent le village natal pour faire souche dans d'autres localités haut-rhinoises. Citons par exemple Joseph HANNAUER, fils de Joseph et d'Agathe HASENBOEHLER, qui épousa Catherine RIBER en l'an 1748 à feldkirch (relevé SAIREPA). En septembre 1751, Joseph HANNAUER fut écroué pour une raison qui nous est inconnue, et fut conduit à la conciergerie de Colmar le même mois (registre d'écrou de la prison du château de Bollwiller). D'autres all�rent s'installer à Soultzmatt, comme Henri HANAUER qui s'y maria en l'An X de la République Fran�aise avec Catherine KARCH. Fils de Henri et d'Anne-Marie GOETZ, il vit le jour à Pfaffenheim en octobre 1772. Au moment de son mariage, il travaillait pour le compte d'Ignace DEBENATH. Le Nouveau Dictionnaire de Biographie Alsacienne, en cours de parution, consacre une large notice à l'abbé Charles Auguste HANAUER, professeur et historien. Charles Auguste nacquit le 20 mai 1828 à Habsheim o� son p�re Fran�ois Antoine était receveur des contributions directes. Apr�s ses études à Lunéville et Nancy, il entra au grand Séminaire de Strasbourg. Apr�s avoir achevé sa licence �s-lettres à Paris, il enseigna pendant 28 ans au coll�ge de Colmar, avant d'accepter le poste de bibliothécaire-archiviste à la ville de Haguenau. Son p�re, Fran�ois Antoine HANAUER, était natif de Wittenheim, et avait épousé Victoire ROELLY. Charles Auguste publia de nombreux ouvrages dont "Les études économiques sur l'Alsace ancienne et moderne" en deux volumes. En l'an 1695, en l'église Sainte-Marie de Wittenheim, le curé baptisa Fran�ois, fils de Louis HANAUER et d'Elisabeth WEISS. Celui-ci épousa Marie-Anne MAUSLER, également native du village. De ce couple nacquirent au moins deux enfants, Fran�ois en Antoine. Mais curieusement, jusqu'en l'an 1763, plus aucune union HANAUER n'est mentionnée dans le registre des mariages de Wittenheim. C'est en cette année-là que le veuf Jean HANAUER, alors âgé de 44 ans, épousa Fran�oise, la veuve d'Antoine TRITSCH. Peu de temps apr�s, c'est un certain Antoine HANAUER, également veuf, qui unit sa destinée avec Catherine FRIESS, native de Buhl. Puis, nous relevons dans le cahier SAIREPA provisoire les unions de Jean HANAUER et Catherine ADELBRECHT en 1771, Jean HANAUER et Marie-Thér�se MEMMINGER en 1775 ou encore Fran�ois-Guillaume HANAUER et Marie-Anne KOEHLER en 1871. Dans la "Chronique de Wittenheim", de Désiré RENAULD, on note quelques mentions du patronyme. Par exemple en l'An Quatre de la République, nous apprenons que les citoyens HANAUER et EBERSOL vendirent aux ench�res les terres du couvent de Wittenheim en trois cent soixante parts. La derni�re des parties fut gardée par Fran�ois Wilheim HANAUER, alors maire du village. Enfin, citons le mariage de Fran�oise HANAUER avec Joseph FIMBER, tous deux de Wittenheim qui se sont unis le 17 décembre 1792 à Notre-Dame de Mariastein en Suisse. Le répertoire du Clergé d'Alsace de Louis KAMMERER fait état d'une seule mention HANAUER. Il s'agit de Jean HANAUWER qui fut curé de Mertzen en 1668. Aucune indication quant à son origine n'est mentionnée. En janvier 1715, lors de l'inventaire et partage au déc�s de Lucie MEYER, épouse de Louis GRUSER, bourgeois de Buhl, un certain Mathieu HANAUWER de Munwiller est cité parmi les débiteurs. Enfin, "l'état nominatif des habitants du culte catholique pour la commune de Pfastatt" du début du XIX� si�cle (publié dans le bulletin Bergha) fait état de Jean HANAUER, boulanger du lieu. Comme beaucoup de familles Alsaciennes, les HANAUER ont aussi émigrés vers les Etats-Unis. Parmi eux, citons Emile HANAUER, brasseur de profession, natif de Wittenheim, qui fit sa demande de passeport en avril 1870 pour aller travailler à Buenos Aires. De même, le vigneron Sébastien HANAUER quitta son village natal de Soultzmatt avec sa femme et ses trois enfants pour la ville de New York en l'an 1847.

In researching for a Historiography on the website I found your letter. My spouse, F. Dean Lupkey was a member of the 397th AAA Battalion and is still with us. He was a part of Mulberry on DDay. He will be 88 in Nov. The book I am looking for (I have a xeroxed copy of it) is a fantastic book with day by day narratives starting from their first assignment at Ft. Sheridan thru the end. While I do not have a cover for it what the front page states is:
A Historiography
The 397th A.A.A. Battalion
ON REVIEW
England France Belgium Holland Germany

Hope this helps.

David,
I am a historian researching the armored battalions and antiaircraft battalions that landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy on June 6, 1944. I saw two comments posted on your website from men researching the 397th Provisional AAA MG Battalion and an officer named Lieutenant Richard Hanauer who served in that unit. I would like to correspond with these men--Doyle Calvi and John Lyons--regarding the information they have on this unit and Lt. Hanauer. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello David

While searching for information about the above I came across your website, in which Giles Schofield suggests that Bernard was at Dachau and might have escaped.

I found another reference to Dachau which confirms the point and his important role there later.

Bernard was a close friend of my parents (we lived near Charterhouse) and I remember him very well and fondly - as do many of my friends from the area.

Our family story has it that he was arrested for refusing to Heil Hitler in the 1939 Olympic games (where he was representing Holland), so was arrested and sent to Buchenvald - but the Dutch managed to secure his release. He later fought with the SAS in Burma (I remember him taking my father, a senior police officer, on various arduous SAS training exercises - supposedly for fun)!

Just for completeness' sake I would like to know at what stage he was in Dachau.

If you or perhaps Jack (Bernard's grandson, who replied to Giles) can help I'd be most grateful.

With thanks

Tom Bliss

My grandfather was born in Regansburg the family moved to Nabburg after his birth. Both my grandfather and his father were master builders that worked on Schloss Neuschwanstien for King Ludwig II of Bavaria. My great grandfather was responsible for designing and building the stairways in the castle.

Hi David,

We've actually spoken before - I don't know if you remember, but several years ago I contacted you when I was planning a trip across America, intending to meet Hanauers along the way?... Well, I was all ready to go, then I went down with glandular fever, and the whole thing rather fell by the wayside.

Anyway, that wasn't really why I was writing. Another Hanauer - Elly - visited your site recently and saw the following post, from March this year, which she forwarded to me:

Dear David,

I was taught German in the 1970s at Charterhouse School in England by Captain Bernard R Hanauer. He was a war hero who survived Dachau (escaped?). I would love to know more about him...
Kind regards

Giles Schofield


Bernard Hanauer was my grandfather, so I'd be happy to tell Giles what I know about him, if you'd be kind enough to give me his email, or vice versa. Many thanks.

Best wishes - and who knows, maybe I'll still make my Hanauer trip one of these days!

I have been putting some facts together about the Hanauer clan in Dayton Ohio. One common element is the fact that from the time my great grandfather arrived from Germany, there has been no religion practice or recognized by any member there of. Do you know if there is a predominate affiliation with any particular religion with regards to the Hanauer name? Knowing this answer would be a great help as to where to search. Thank You:Jeff

I arrrived at this website as I was curious to find traces of Walter Zurndorfer, a first cousin of my mother, Ruth Herzfeld Engelbrecht who was born in Dusseldorf and immigrated to Argentina in 1937. She immigrated to Chicago in 1956 because Walter signed an affidavit for her and her two children. I believe that my mother worked at the Hanauer leather company for a while. This website is very interesting for me to find as I'm hoping to learn more about the direct descendants of Walter Zurndorfer.

David:

I found your website and am trying to locate some information on a fellow names Richard C. Hanauer. He was in the 430th AAA AW Bn during WWII. Any relation?

I'm trying to right the history of this unit and Richard played a big part.

Here's some specifics about this man.

Lt. Hanauer rejoined Battery "B" after volunteering for temporary duty with the 397th Provisional AAA MG Battalion (anti-aircraft artillery, machine gun), which landed on Omaha Beach, code named "Easy Red," along with units of the 197th AAA AW, within 15-30 minutes after the first wave of infantry on D-Day, 6 June 1944. Also with this battalion were Sgt. Frederick O. Kent of Battery "B" and Sgt. Mitchell E. Gay of Battery "D". The 397th Provisional Machine Gun Battalion was to be part of the first wave of Allied soldiers to land on Omaha Beach and protect the engineers while they removed steel barriers and other obstacles for the infantry. Most of this unit was wiped out even before they got to land. "They lost 28 of its 36 machine guns disembarking."

Lt. Hanauer would eventually be promoted to Captain and would also receive a Bronze star for his actions at Omaha Beach.

Doyle Calvi

Can you put me in touch with Doyle Calvi?

Just dropped by to say hello. If there are any of my Yankee relatives (Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut) visiting your website I'd like to hear from them. It seems they've all vanished over the years.

And Thomas Hanauer in Michigan, give your brother a call sometime.

I just found this great site looking on facebook for relatives. I am the grand daughter of Adolph Hanauer and great niece of Albert Hanauer who immigrated from Germany to New Brunswick, NJ in the 1870's or 80's. If there are any relatives out there I would love to be in touch. Please let me know if you think you might be related to me.

David:

I found your website and am trying to locate some information on a fellow names Richard C. Hanauer. He was in the 430th AAA AW Bn during WWII. Any relation?

I'm trying to right the history of this unit and Richard played a big part.

Here's some specifics about this man.

Lt. Hanauer rejoined Battery "B" after volunteering for temporary duty with the 397th Provisional AAA MG Battalion (anti-aircraft artillery, machine gun), which landed on Omaha Beach, code named "Easy Red," along with units of the 197th AAA AW, within 15-30 minutes after the first wave of infantry on D-Day, 6 June 1944. Also with this battalion were Sgt. Frederick O. Kent of Battery "B" and Sgt. Mitchell E. Gay of Battery "D". The 397th Provisional Machine Gun Battalion was to be part of the first wave of Allied soldiers to land on Omaha Beach and protect the engineers while they removed steel barriers and other obstacles for the infantry. Most of this unit was wiped out even before they got to land. "They lost 28 of its 36 machine guns disembarking."

Lt. Hanauer would eventually be promoted to Captain and would also receive a Bronze star for his actions at Omaha Beach.

Dear David,

You have been a big part of my journey in learning about my family and I wanted to share with you and your guest book follower's the latest exciting news in my life.

I have recently been interviewed by Emmy Award Winning Reporter, Carey Pena. She did a wonderful job in telling my story. The interview can be viewed at the following website: http://www.azfamily.com/news/local/stories/PrescottValley-local-news-120808-family-secrets-st.43998c5f.html

All of my research is currently being entered into the archives of holocaust research at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. It has been so amazing to look back at where I started in 2003, and to see the amount of history I have been able to uncover.

Thank you for all of your support. You have definitely been a wonderful friend these past 5 years.

Happy Holidays,

Terri

Hi David,

We've corresponded a few times over the years; I think my entry in the Hanauer Guestbook was one of the earlier ones. You were doing a residency at the time, if I recall correctly. I hope you're doing well. I've enjoyed reading the newer entries in the guestbook from time to time, and tonight found that there are a few people whose email addresses I'd like to have. Their names and the dates of their entries in the guestbook are:
* Barbara Savino -- 9/30/08 (she worked for my uncle many years ago)
* Penelope Stiefel -- 2/4/08 (her family is from Richen, as is mine)
* Eric Hanauer -- 4/11/06 (definitely related; I've met his brother, Joe Hanauer)

My genealogical research continues... a lifelong pursuit, I imagine. I went to Chicago for the annual Jewish Genealogy Societies' conference in August and while there met a Hanauer cousin by marriage who I had "found" just a couple of weeks earlier. I knew this branch had lived in Chicago but prior to this, the paper trail had ended in 1892. Perhaps you know or have heard of Steve Hanauer, M.D., who's at the U of Chicago. He's a noted specialist in Crohn's and colitis. It was his wife who I met.
I would appreciate it very much if you would send me those three email addresses. The search continues.

Happy Hanukkah and/or Merry Christmas, whichever you celebrate... or both......

What a great web site. I think I see entries of some of my relatives. My father is/was John Hanauer Jr. in Dayton Ohio, still alive as far as I know. My mom was married to him for a short while and had 2 children 1955 and 1956,...my older brother is John too. The two of us were adopted by my moms new husband when we were 10 and 11 hence our new last name. My grandfather was John too who owned a farm I think in Tipp City part of Dayton Ohio. My father had a brother and sister Steve and Judy whom both had remarried a few times. I am not sure how many cousins I have. My father remarried to Shirley and they had a daughter Lauren. If you have any email addresses from my family I would love to contact them. It would be great to get a family tree going for I only know people up to my grandfather and not past that. Thanks for your wonderful web site. Feel free to pass on my email too, I would love to contact anyone in the family.

Will be relocating November 1st. Thank you for your cooperation. I hope all is well with you and your family.

The van der Heym's and Hanauer's remain, always in my prayers.

I would very much appreciate it if you could make a contact for me. Ralph Hanauer is Simon's brother-in-law and coincidently David Hanauer is his nephew's name. They last lived in Toronto, Canada, in Richmond Hill area and King City. This is in the province of Ontario. I have had no contact since 2005, and much has happened.

Hi David,
Googled the last name and your site popped up. Wonder if you knew of a William Hanauer? He was an owner of a municipal bond firm in Newark New Jersey and had a brother, Jack who also owned a different bond firm. The last I heard of Mr. Hanauer, he had moved to California and remarried, leaving here in New Jersey a wife, Edna and two children, a son and a daughter.
If you know anything about him I would love to hear from you. I worked for him in the 70's and he was quite a role model for me back in the day.
Thanks!

Dear Mister Hanauer!

I'm an austrian-dutch author of childrens books and recently during research fora new book. During my research I just now, saw that in 1999 a mrs Ruth M Hanauer (110 Street Forrest Hills) believes her 2 cousins Martin Joseph Epstein (1924) and Werner Dietrich Epstein (1921) both born in Frankfurt am Main, but living in Amsterdam during the WWII died in the holocaust. This is true for Martin Joseph but not, as far as I can see for Werner Dietrich. He (very possibly) and certainly his father and mother Hermann Max Epstein and Selma Kahn survived.

If you have this lady among your contacts (and if she is still alive),please could you forward this.

Sincerely
Rachelvan Kooij

I had no idea there were this many Hanauers! Our little branch is relatively small. My grandfather's father emigrated from Germany--the story goes that he was Jacob von Hanau and when he got to New York he became a Hanauer. But I was in Germany and France in 1987 and learned Hanauer was a common name near Strasburg. I have pictures of a Hanauer Strasse. My grandfather's name was Sylvan. I believe he had a sister named Ruth (as well as a wife named Ruth). My dad's name is Adam. I also have a brother named Seth and a sister, Rachel. And those were the only Hanauers I knew growing up in NJ, Mass, and NH. Interesting to hear of so many others.

This is one of the most amazing pieces of information to come to me. This is the actual listing of my great grandfather's factory in Berlin in 1928.

The most amazing part is that this comes to me from a new found relative living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We had been in contact back in 2005 when he had emailed me from David Hanauer's website. His great grandmother was the sister in law of the brother of my great great grandfather, David Hanauer. He is of the same generation as my father. He has a daughter who is 39 years old. She is not married and has no children.

Since receiving my family tree, I have now confirmed that I have living relatives. One in Las Vegas, one in England,�and two in Buenos Aires.

My cousin, Juliette will be coming out here in November and we plan to start filming a documentary on our family. I have already invited Enrique from Buenos Aires to participate in the documentary. I will next invited Ella from Las Vegas and Michael from England.

I believe that we are all being led to each other for something really big. It is just amazing that I have been able to receive so much information from so many sources from around the world.

I hope you all find this just as fascinating as I do.

Have a wonderful day,

Hello David;
I was born in Dayton Ohio to Leo John Hanauer and Rebecca Marie Everhart. My father was born in Dayton March 7, 1895. He was 46 when I was born. I never knew his parents, as they passed when I was a baby. All I know about them is that they were born in Germany and spoke very little english. I don't even know their names. My father had a brother Fred and sisters Gertrude and Eleanor. All are now deceased. There used to be quite a few Hanauer's in the phone book here in Dayton, now there are only 4, My brother Edward, Mark, Paul and Steve. None of the last 3 are relatives (that I know of). Just thought I'd like to pass this info on.

My name is Michael Edward Hanauer. I was born to Dalton Paul Hanauer and Stella Maxine Spencer in Fort wayne Indiana. I have three sisters: Connie Sue, Deborah June, and Barbara Lynn. I googled my name and came across your site. My father once told me that our ancestors all came from Germany. He also told me that the name was originally "Von Hanauer", but that the Von was dropped when the first immigrants came to the states. I don't know much about my family tree except that a lot of my relatives popu-
lated the tri states of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.I also know that my father had an uncle Ernest that was a fireman in the New York area. As someone else has posted, I too remember my father telling me at one time as I was growing up that if the name was spelled Hanauer; that we were all related in one way or another at least in the state of In.
Thanks very much for your site and the opportunity to add my name to the mix. I have also been astonished to find out just how many Hanauers there are. Thanks again.

This entire journey of looking for the truth of my families survival and looking for distant relatives has been a great adventure. In April I was asked to talk about my research on a local radio show. Almost 16 minutes of airtime.

The interview occurred on March 13, 2007 on KQNA 1130 AM in Prescott, Arizona.

The main topic was my families' involvement in the Rosenstrasse Protest that had occurred in Berlin from February 27, 1943 till March 8, 1943. And how I came to realize my family members involvement. This was the only non-violent protest that was documented in Germany that had resulted in the release of Jewish spouses to their Christian spouses.

There is also reference of the concentration camp that my family ended up being transported to in 1944. And a postcard that had been written to my grandmother from her grandfather as he sat on a train that was transporting him to a labor camp in 1941. The wife of a soldier on the train delivered the postcard to my grandmother.

David,

I am so excited. I just wanted to share this with you.
I have been able to get in contact with professor/author, Nathan Stoltzfus in Florida who is a World War II Historian. He wrote a book called "Resistance of the Heart: Intermarriage and the Rosenstrasse protest in Nazi Germany".
A part of my families history involves the protest on Rosenstrasse.

Follows is the correspondence so far.
Terri Hanauer-Brahm

Dear Dr. Stoltzfus,

I am the daughter of a holocaust survivor. My father was born in 1940 Berlin. Both his parents were considered half bred. Both of my great grandfathers were born to Jewish parents, while both of my great grandmothers were born to Christian parents. I just recently learned that my great grandfather, Jonas Rosenfeld had been imprisoned on Rosenstrasse Feb. 27, 1943 till Mar. 8, 1943. The way I came upon this was purely by accident. I had been flipping through movie channels when I came to a German movie. I started reading the subtitles and felt that this was important for me to watch. I purchased the movie from Amazon.com and watched it all the way through. This was back in August. Just last week I was going over papers I had copied from my great grandfathers journal. They were translated by a close friend from Germany. I saw arrested:
Dec. 13, 1942 until Jan. 26, 1943, Hbgstr. (not legible)
Feb. 27, 1943 until March 8, 1943, Rosenstr.
Aug. 21, 1944 until Sept. 8, 1944 Schulstr.

I have so much more I would like to discuss with you. My grandfather, Hans Heinz Hanauer was murdered in Auschwitz on March 31, 1943. I have learned that he was a member of a resistance group and he had been held in Spreenhagen from March 3, 1941 until he was transported to Auschwitz on March 4, 1943. I have a postcard that he had written to my grandmother while he sat on the train on March 3, 1941. The wife of a Nazi soldier had hand delivered it to my grandmother.

I need more help to uncover what my family had kept secret till their deaths. Everything I have found has been by writing letters.

Just last year I received from an old family friend of my grandfather and his sister, a wooden bowl and a wooden plate that my grandfather made as an apprentice. I feel very fortunate to be able to receive such history. I would like to finish my research within the next year. I hope you will be able to send me in the right direction.

Sincerely,
Terri Hanauer-Brahm

Dear Ms. Hanauer Brahm
Thank you for your wonderful letter. it seems you are in the middle of very promising and extremely interesting research. Were all three of the arrests you document below of so called "half Jews?"
all best to you in the new year,
Nathan

Dear Dr. Stoltzfus,


My grandfather Hans Heinz Hanauer and grandmother Ursula Hanauer nee Rosenfeld both had 2 Jewish grandparents and 2 Christian grandparents.



I know that my grandfather Hans was warned by the Underground SDP (banned Social Democrat Party) that there was a warrant for his arrest. The Underground SDP was an organization of people belonging to the Adolf Koch Institute circle. The Institute was a school for gynmastiks with Alpine sun and healthiness consultation. Some of these people had remained with the police at the request of the Underground SDP. They worked in the so-called Card Index where Aryans and Jews were registered. In this position, they had the opportunity to alter cards to Aryanize. My grandfather did not take the warrant seriously and left his hiding place. He was with my great uncle Gerd Rosenfeld and Gerd's wife Hela Rosenfeld nee Bergman when he was arrested on the street.

My grandmother and father, Uri (then 14 months old) were at the train station to see my grandfather leave to go to Gut Winkel, Spreenhagen on March 3, 1941. My father did not want to leave his father. A soldier told my grandmother to hold him so he would not run to the train. It was while my grandfather sat on the train that he wrote my grandmother a note. Ester Binder delivered the note to my grandmother. She was the wife of one of the soldiers on the train. I have this note. It is a beautiful reflection of what he was feeling at that moment. I had it translated and receive great joy each time I read it.



My great grandfather Max Hanauer was married to Frieda Hanauer nee Teske. They had owned a raincoat factory before the war. Bombs destroyed their factory during the war. They survived the war by hiding in a small cabin in Grunau. A woman named Lotti Mader owned this cabin. She was an employee of my great grandfathers factory.

Max had gone to Berlin every week with a rucksack on his back. Max wore a Bavarian costume with a great wrap, which covered his Jewish star. His neighbors in Grunau were told that the Hanauers came from the Bavarian country, where they had lost their home through bombs. It was a believable story because my grandfather had spoken very well in the Bavarian dialect. He was born in Wurzburg. He had before the war belonged to the "Bayern-Verein" (Bavaria club). My grandfather Hans and his sister Ilse Hanauer were made to go each Sunday to this club. This club offended them both because they did not allow Jews.



My great aunt Ilse was living with another employee of my great grandfather Max. They shared the same ID card. The Underground SDP had destroyed Ilse?s papers. She had worked with the Underground SDP and was in love with Adolph Koch. They had an affaire, but because Ilse was considered "half-bred", Adolph could not commit totally to her.



Do you have access to the list of detainees on Rosenstrasse? I am almost sure my grandfather was taken there before being transported to Auschwitz. The date of his leaving Gut Winkel is March 4, 1943. The date of his transportation to Auschwitz was March 6, 1943. I also wonder if my grandmother Ursula was taken to the center on Rosenstrasse? I know that my great grandmother Frieda Rosenfeld nee Tscharntke protected my grandmother and great grandfather. My father Uri Hanauer was living in a Christian home as the child of this family. I do not know who these people were. My great grandmother Frieda Rosenfeld past away on August 16, 1944. It was August 21, 1944 that my grandmother Ursula and great grandfather Jonas was detained once again. The SS asked my grandmother where my father was and they picked him up, then he was reunited with my grandmother. They were on Schulstr. Until September 8, 1944. They were then transported to Theresienstadt. This is where they were until they were liberated on June 8, 1945.

I would like to be able to fill in the blanks. I know that the German government kept detailed records. My grandfather was not supposed to have been killed. These were the words from my great aunt Ilse. I want to know how she had this idea. She never went into a lot of detail about our family. Everything I am telling you has come from people in Berlin who were associated with my family before, during and after the war.

Thank you for any help you can provide me.

Sincerely,
Terri Hanauer-Brahm

Hi
I came across your page over the Christmas period and was particularly interested in Enrique Kahn's entry(copied below), especialy his family tree and the line through Berthod & Rosa Hanauer. Their son Herbert was my father He was the first of the family to leave Germany, arriving in Dover GB on the day before his 16th birthday. Its a long complex and personal story that I would rather not go into here because I am currently working on a book about it. I would very much appreciate if you could either let me have Enrique's e-mail address or let him have mine and ask him if he would get in touch me.

Best regards

Dear Dr. Hanauer,
I came to the surname HANAUER in my family tree thru 2 ways.
1). The stepson of my great-great-grandfather was ABRAHAM BAMBERGER of Wiesenfeld, married with GEHEL HANAUER (died 1/5/1921). They had two sons: Ferdinand and Louis Bamberger.
2). LENORE KAUFMANN (a sister of my great-grandmother Sara Kaufmann married to Sigmund Kahn) was married to HIRSCH HANAUER (died 17/5/1904). Hirsch and Lenore had, (as far as I know) 4 children: Berthold, Moses, Frieda and Fritz.
Berthold Hanauer, born 23/3/1877 in Wiesenfeld. died 25/1/1949 in UK, married 27/5/1912 ROSA HEIDENHEIMER.
They had a daughter Edith married to Max Gruenbaum, and had a son James Michael Greenwood.
Only Edith is surviving now.
I hope some related Hanauer will find me.
Best regards from Buenos Aires

My daughter, Sandi, just posted below and my brother, Joe, did so a couple of years ago. Just one correction on Sandi's post: My father, Otto Hanauer, was born in Schluchtern, my mother, Betty, in Rexingen. I was born in 1935 in Stuttgart, Joe in 1937.

Things were getting very unpleasant for Jews in Germany so in May, 1938, my parents bundled the family (Joe, my grandmother, Bertha Zurndorfer, and me) on the SS Washington and sailed for the USA. My third birthday was aboard the ship. Kristallnacht occurred five months later.

We settled in Chicago because a cousin, Dr. Walter Zurndorfer, signed for us. But my parents had to fend for themselves. My father formed a small leather goods company and sent both of us through college.

I've visited the family homes in Stuttgart and Rexingen, and also Hanau, where the family name originated. An industrial suburb of Frankfurt, its main claim to fame is as the birthplace of the brothers Grimm. It was heavily bombed during WWII, so virtually nothing exists of the pre-war city. Even the Schlossgarten has no Schloss (castle). The city seal is a swan perched on a helmet, which is perched on a shield. It could probably serve as the Hanauer coat of arms.

Joe and I have four daughters between us, so we are the end of the line when it comes to our branch of the family name. I'm glad there are so many others to carry it on.

Wow! Who knew there were so many Hanauers in the U.S.? Thanks for a great web site! As far as I can tell, my uncle, Joe Hanauer, is the only one from our branch of the family tree who has posted here. My father, Eric Hanauer, was born in Stutgart, Germany, in 1935. He is the son of Otto Hanauer and Betty (Zurndorfer) Hanauer, both originally from Rexingen. Otto did a family tree that traced the family in Germany back about 400 years. My grandparents were Jewish, and were able to leave Germany in 1938, when they came to the US and settled in Chicago.

Hi. I just learned that my maternal great great grandmother was a Hanauer. Her name was Fannie, she came from Germany to Texas in the 1800s. She was married to Leopold Steiner. One or both of them may have been from Darmstadt-Hesse. My great grandmother, their daugher, was born in Texas in 1861. If you think you have information about Fannie's family or may be related, please let me know! Thanks.

Hallo all you Hanauers,

i recently started a genealogy of my family.
I was surprised to find such a lot of Hanauers in the US.
What I still miss is a root back to Europe, where I think the name has its origin. I come from the town of Bamberg which is located in Bavaria/Germany. There are roots to a region close to Bamberg to the town of Viechtach in the East. Another trace leads to a city called Hanau some 200 kilometers to the NW of Bamberg.
Do you know anything about where the name stems from?
Do you know a source of information?

Best Greetings from Germany

Thomas

New fact and theory of my Hanauer family:

Fact:
My great grandfather Max Hanauer, born in Bavaria in 1880. His parents, David Hanauer (one of many siblings) & Julie Seligenbrunn, both of whom to be of Jewish heritage.
Max had an older sister name Irmi, nicknamed Jenny.
Max left Cuxhaven, on the SS Deutschland on April 23, 1903.
Max landed on Ellis Island on May 1, 1903. He was one of 30 passengers.

Theory:
Max spent 3 years in America. He had stayed in Utah for a short time with a relative who was in banking.
Max was in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake. I have 2 copies of pictures taken after the quake.
I am positive he became fluent in the English language.
I know that he was in the Military in the beginning of his marriage to my great grandmother, Freida Martha Teske.
Freida's parents, Christian & Marie Arndt, were Christians.
Freida was born in Pomerania. Freida had a sister named Elise.
I do not know the date or year of Max & Freida's marriage.

Fact:
Max & Freida had two children, Ilse was born in 1916 and Hans (my grandfather) was born in 1918. Both were born in Berlin.
Hans was rebellious. He fell in love with my grandmother, Ursula Rosenfeld and married her, I believe in 1939. My father, Uri Hanauer was born on February 6, 1940, in Berlin.

Fact/Theory:
My grandfather Hans was involved in an organization that helped Jewish people to go to Israel on Kabutz. The organization was called "Hach Ara".
It was his involvement that separated my grandfather, Hans, from his family.

Fact:
Last year I received a postcard that was dated 3 March 1941. It was written by my grandfather while he sat on a train waiting deportation to some sort of training facility. He gave the postcard to the wife of a soldier and she delivered it to my grandmother. The woman even signed it herself. Her name was Ester Binder.
The postcard has been translated by 2 German woman. And both translations were the same.
It was a beautiful love letter to my grandmother. She never saw Hans again. He was murdered in Auschwitz, March 31, 1943. My grandmother, Ursula, my father, Uri, and my great grandfather, Jonas Rosenfeld were transported to Theresienstadt on March 8, 1944. They remained there until June of 1945.
I have documentation on this entire fact.

I have no idea how my grandmother, father, and great grandfather immigrated to America. I have my father's citizenship paper, but there is no record of my family in the National Archives of Records Administration.
I have been unable to find any records on Ursula Hanauer, Uri Hanauer, or Jonas Rosenfeld's entry into this country.

I have found records on Ilse Hanauer & Freida Hanauer's arrival to America.

I would love to know if there are any Hanauer's in Salt Lake City, Utah, that have been in the area for over 100 years. There definitely would be a connection.

I hope that all the Hanauer's out there keep up to date on David Hanauer's wonderful website. The more imput we can give one another, the more we can learn about the Hanauer name.

Terri Hanauer-Brahm

Documents Pertaining to the murder of Hans Hanauer in Auschwitz:

I have been trying to find the truth about my grandfather for so long. As far as I can tell, he was involved in helping the Jews escape Germany to Israel. He had the opportunity to escape himself with my grandmother and father, but my grandmother would not leave her ill mother.

My grandfather's family never forgave my grandmother for not leaving Germany when she had the chance.

I am so thankful that you have allowed me to share my families story of survival on your website. We must never forget the tragedy of the Holocaust.

  • Dear David: I just ran across your website. I wonder whether your family is descended from the Simon HANAUER who settled near York, PA in the late 19th century. If so, I just got off the phone with one of your cousins in Texas - and I have more cousins for you in Australia. (I am not part of this family.) I was interested to see that you used to work for Rohm and Haas Company. I am a patent and trademark attorney there now. Best regards, Stephen Falk

  • My father's given name was Uri Hanauer (when he became a US citizen at age 12 he changed his name to Ralph Uri Hanauer), He was born in Berlin on February 6, 1940.
    My grandfather's name was Han's Hanauer (Han's was murdered in Auschwitz), my grandmother's name was Ursula Rosenfeld before marrying my grandfather. My grandmother and father were sent to Theresienstadt at the same time my grandfather went to Auschwitz. They were released on June 7, 1945. They came to America shortly after that. Hans had a sister Ilse Hanauer, Their parents were Max Hanauer and Frieda Teske. Max had a sister named Jenny Hanauer. Max and Jenny's Parents were David Hanauer and Julie ?. I do know that David had 10 brothers (this could be the reason there are so many of us Hanauer's in the world) David was a brewer and exporter of brewing ingredients to Russia and China. Max too was a brewer when he came over to America in 1903. He stayed until 1906, then went back to Germany. He then built a factory in Berlin and manufactured raincoats. After the war started, the factory was taken from my family. The only names I've gotten for the factory are Behrens Bauman Nachfolger. I found information on Peter Behrens who was a famous architect who I believe built the factory. The other two words are a mystery. Max Hanauer belonged to The Bavarian Club and was very prominent in Berlin before the war started. I have many pictures from the early 1900's. I would love to know if any of you other Hanauer's may think we have a link. Unfortunately my father passed away in 1981. My only other relative is Juliette Hanauer, she is the daughter of Ilse Hanauer. We are searching to find out who her father is. Ilse Passed away this past December. I hope to hear from you soon.

    I was born in VA Jan 29, 1979. My father is Donald Howard Hanauer who lives in VA and was born in CT. His father (my grandfather of course) was Donald Hanauer, 044-24-8943, (10 Aug 1931 - 19 Sep 2001) who lived in Kerrville, TX and was born in CT. My father�s brother George �Ted� Hanauer passed in 1998 but is not on your list. Thomas Havaland Hanauer is my father�s half-brother (half-brother is misleading because he will always be 100% family). His middle name Havaland comes from the maiden name of my grandfather�s mother (my father may need to verify this. I have an older brother Donald Howard Hanauer II who lives in the same town in VA as my parents. I love my last name (not a related topic to the paragraph but I had to throw it in). I have a daughter Casey Elizabeth Hanauer born June 19, 2002 in San Angelo, TX.

    I encourage my relatives to post more about our family. For example, Thomas should post his siblings and other family members.

    Attention: Jerry Hanauer, Pacific Coast Feather Company

    My husband and I recently stayed at the Heritage House in Mendocino, CA where all the beds have your mattress covers which are great. I was born in Germany and my first job after graduating from the University of Tuebingen as a laboratory technician was at the Buehle Hoehe in the Black Forest near Baden Baden. This would be the mid to late 1950s. This was a very exclusive health resort and I met there and became friendly with a guest named Hanauer, who I believe had the first name, Fredrich. He was in the feather business also and he was from Stuttgart. I assume he was an ancestor of yours? I kept in contact after I left the Buehle Hoehe, but lost the contact when I came to the United States. I remember that he drove a big, American Cadillac convertible which was certainly unique in Germany at that time.

    I would enjoy hearing anything relating to this gentleman.

    Sincerely,
    Helga (Niedner) Johnson

  • Dear Dr. Hanauer, I was captivated by your homepage. I'm not a Hanauer. I'm an Israeli born, Israeli psychiatrist who lives in Jerusalem, Israel. I'm writing to tell you about a rather interesting person by the name of James Edward Hanauer (1850 - 1938) who lived in the Holy Land, and was famous in his time as a scholar and a teacher. He was the elder son of a converted Bavarian Jew and a British Christian mother, was born in Jaffa and grew up to be a teacher and a clergyman in those days Palestine. He was a scholarly student of history, archeology and geology, and studied the flora and fauna of the Holy Land as well. He published numerous articles, as well as five books: Baptism, Jewish and Christian, Cook's Handbook for Paslestine and Syria, Walks in and around Jerusalem, and Folklore of the Holy Land. In fact, one of Hanauer's books - "The Holy Land, Myths and Legends" could still be found in bookshops. It is a modern printing of the old "Folklore of the Holy Land" which was originally published in 1907. I came across his writings when I researched the so-called "Jerusalem Syndrome" phenomenon. In his reminiscenses, Hanauer gave some vivid descriptions of excentric "messiahs" who visited Jerusalem during the 19th century. As he stated "It is an odd fact that many Americans who arrive at Jerusalem are either lunatics or lose their mind thereafter". He even claimed that those days Jerusalem was considered "a large madhouse" (mind you, its the whole Middle East now...) and claimed that he personally knew three American Consuls who became mentally ill... Well, I'm telling you all this story because after I learned about your qualities and your sense of humor, It sort of crossed my mind that the two of you might share some genes... :)
    Enjoy Life in The Big Apple (which I'm told is not a madhouse at all..)

He followed suit & ran his own small tobacco co. out of his home office in Newton, MA. I haven't researched our genealogy much, but I think our grandfather Maurice come over from Germany around 1900. From internet searches, I've found there are many more Hanauers than I'd ever imagined. Apparently, many entered the US via Philadelphia in the 18th century & via NYC in the 19th century. I'd be interested to hear the stories of other Hanauers as well as any general info. about Hanauer immigration history, connections to the town of Hanau en Mein, Germany, etc.

  • Greetings from West Springfield where I reside while I look for my first house in a nearby town. I was born in Boston, grew up in Newton, MA, and moved west from Boston to the Pioneer Valley in 1995. Always thought Hanauers were few and far between.....until the internet and the web started in the '90s. Then I learned, THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!

  • Hi, I'm Debbie White, sister of Jerry White and daughter of Sandy (Hanauer) Bursten, and very proud aunt of Claire White, the aforementioned totally adorable redheaded girl. I'm 43 years old and married to Michael Borenstein. I live in Sherman Oaks, CA and work for Fox Entertainment Group in the field of Labor Relations. Love your web site. I travel to NY quite a bit, so perhaps we can have a Hanauer mini-reunion. I'm also in touch with Bill Hanauer, who lives in NY, and who probably isn't related to us according to the notes he and my mom compared, but we call each other "cuz" anyway. Bill also works in the entertainment industry which is how I met him about 10 or 12 years ago. Hauauers seem to have a penchant for getting to know each other!!

  • Hi David. Nice website. My mom is Sandy Hanauer Bursten, the family genealogist. I'm 40 years old and I live with my wife and 2 year old daughter in San Leandro, CA, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area. My uncle Gary Hanauer (Sandy's brother) also lives in San Leandro. We're the Bay Area Hanauers. My strongest connection to our Hanauer roots (besides my mom of course!) is my daughter's red hair. Grandpa Jack Hanauer was a redhead in his youth. The rest of my family, on both sides, is dark haired. When Claire came out red, we were all surprised! You can see some outdated pictures of Claire and the rest of us at http://whitehouse.tripod.com/. Ciao!

  • Good for you, Dave. If we do this right, we can all share a Hanauer website. My (first) cousin, Sandy Bursten, whose message I saw just before mine in your guestbook invited my attention to your website and I noticed that she has informed several of the rest of our family...some of whom you'll probably hear from. Sandy's father, Jack and my father, Leonard were two of three brothers who were the children of Wilhelm and Sadie (nee Rothschild) Hanauer. We grew up in the Newark, N.J. suburbs of the Oranges. Our fathers operated a securities firm, J.B. Hanauer & Co., (still existing and active mainly in Florida but with offices in East Orange). Write when you've read this. Carl

  • My Hanauer family lived in Richen, Baden, Germany from about 1800, and possibly earlier. My grandfather, Wilhelm (William) Hanauer, was born there in 1878 and came to New York about 1895. He was one of 10 children born to Jakob Hanauer and Sophie Rothschild. One died in childhood and the others all immigrated to the U.S. Four of them settled in Chicago: Samuel, Moses (Morris), Dina (married to Ignacz Weimann) and Regina or Rachel (married to Sali Bachenheimer). The other siblings lived in New York. We are also related to the Haber and Moses families. I am interested in corresponding with all Hanauers and especially those with possible connections to my family.
