Kahl's: Breslau, Germany: Esp. sibling/parent to Martin D.O.B. approx 1930
Posted by: Dean Kahl (ID *****0772) Date: June 22, 2006 at 15:27:30
  of 374

My Grandad, Martin Kahl aged 15 came over from Germany to the UK during World War 1. The reason for this is that he was a Jew and his father could afford to send him over.

Unfortunately, his Uncle (unsure whether it was his mother's or father's brother) didn't wish to take care of him. He married Mabel Vale and they had 6 children. Carol, Susan, Roy, Josie, Paul and Adam. My father is Adam Kahl, I am Dean Kahl with sister Kirsty and cousin Jason Kahl. I understand that my great-grandfather (Martin's dad) somehow escape the Nazi regime on a concentration camp and ended up in America - as the going says, the rest is history.

Unfortunately my Grandad died a few years ago and I was too young to take an interest in my family tree. If anyone recalls someone with the surname Kahl who said he had more than one child, one of which was Martin (my grandad) and another, Ursula (my great-aunt), I'd appreciate a reply.
