Postponement of Eviction, 1942 February 24

Identifier: B333.02.0001.0002.00006


Letter to Marie Loewenstein [Löwenstein on this letter] from Germany.--Generalbauinspektor für die Reichshauptstadt.--Hauptamt Verwaltung und Wirtschaft, the Main Office of Administration and Economics, Berlin, Germany. This letter informs Marie Loewenstein that the family's eviction notices have been temporarily postponed due to an interview with Marie Loewenstein the previous day. Loewenstein successfully proved, using birth and marriage certificates, that she was not Jewish and explained her residence in a Jewish classified household. She also claimed that she did not know where her husband was living. This saved Marie and Max Loewenstein from deportation in March 1942. Translation of this document from Henry Lowenstein: "The General Building Inspector for the Reich’s Capital February 24, 1942 The main office for Administration and Commerce Regarding: Schoeneberg, Motz St.22, Residence Lowenstein. Regarding the conversation of Feb. 23, 1942, in my office, I inform you herewith that the eviction from your living quarters is temporarily postponed."
