Biographical Note

Jenny Bendix was Siegmund Bendix’s daughter. She married her cousin Kurt Bendix and they had two sons: Guenther and Hans. Jenny was deported to Theresienstadt on March 17, 1943 and later murdered in Auschwitz. Her son Hans married the gentile Esther Lundgreen-Widenborg in 1938 and they had two children: Peter and Gisela. Hans tried in vain to get his family to the United States with the help of his uncle. In 1942 Hans committed suicide after having worked as a slave worker. His wife and children left Germany. Ester, Peter, and Gisela moved to Denmark in 1948.
