Nuchem Hersch Josefsberg – Memories

I am the grandson of Nuchem Hersch Josefsberg, born in 1902, from Vienna, who was at Kitchener camp.

The family are just starting out on their research journey, but know that Nuchem married twice: his first wife was Olga, the mother of Trudi Josefsberg. His second wife was Ernastine – the mother of Paul and Nelly Josefsberg.

Throughout the 1930s it was their mission to get as many of the family out of Austria as possible.

Nuchem managed to get his children onto Kindertransports: Paul and Nelly Josefsberg spent a year in the Kindertransport program, then met their father at Richborough.

He next took them to Liverpool, where the children boarded the RMS Scythia for New York to meet up with their mother, Ernestine Josefsberg.

If you have any information about Nuchem, please do get in touch in the usual way and we will be happy to pass on any news to the family.
