After the war Heinz Grünewald went to live in New York. Today, a cousin of his, Eve Lee, lives in Dumont, New Jersey; she is almost 90 years old. I have been in contact with her since 1990. Eve visited Herdecke in 2014, because a memorial tablet for the victims of holocaust was being erected. In 2016, I visited her in Dumont.
