Simon Hochberger is understood to have no surviving family: a researcher is writing a biography of his life to accompany a poem written by Hochberger.
Working together to try to cover something about Simon’s time in Britain, we realised that this sketch below was in the diary pages of Moshe Chaim Gruenbaum.
While this isn’t a photograph, it is the nearest we are likely to get to further images, given that there is no surviving family.
