Biographical Note

Lydia Kaminsky, née Judey (Riga 1903 – New York 1976) was married to Dr. Anatol Kaminsky (Minsk, 1895 - ?), a Russian born doctor who completed his medical education in France. They got married in Berlin in 1930. They fled the Nazis to France and Morocco, and reached the USA in 1942. They had one daughter, Irene, born in 1945.

Lydia’s younger sister, Mary (Miriam) Mangold was born in Riga in 1908; she was married to the Chemist Ernst Mangold. They escaped the Nazis, going to France, where they were in hiding. They emigrated to the US in 1948.

Lydia’s and Mary’s father, Hermann Judey (Riga 1878? – New York 1959), was a wood merchant in Berlin. His wife, Olga (the children’s mother) died in Berlin, when she was only in her 50s. He then remarried. Lydia and Mary had a brother, Jacob, who was a painter and changed his name to Barosin (see the LBI Jacob Barosin Collection. AR 25275). They also had a sister, Sina Ida, who died under the Nazis in Berlin.
