Bruno Pietsch – Memories

Bruno was born on 1 May 1895 in Kiel, and died 10 August 1979 in Westminster.

He was married in 1936 to Annelise Beyer. Both she and their only daughter, Roselise, were murdered at Auschwitz. Roselise was just four and a half years old.

Bruno’s father Emil Pietsch was murdered at Theresienstadt, 14 Feb 1943.

His mother, Elise Skamper Pietsch, died in 1928 in Kiel.

I am related on the Skamper side, but distantly.
