There's a New Man in Our Life

Thanks to Herbert Hart, who has recently come down with the same disease that I and a few relatives of ours have - "Scanningitis". He has provided us with the German passport of his father, Heinz Braunhart, who later changed his name to Henry Hart when he came to America.

Heinz's story goes like this - he left Germany at age 20 in 1935 for Palestine. He was joined by his mother Hedwig's half brother - Isbeth Bukofzer. Heinz immigrated to America in 1937. As stated previously, Carl came in 1939 and Hedwig in 1940; Heinz's sister Hanna never made it out.

Two of Heinz's passport pages are below:
