The name MANTAJ changed/was corrupted when Sam came to England as German prisoner of war. Else (his wife) and their children were turned out of Poland as refugees (all ethnic Germans were removed from Poland, they lost everything) , she thought her husband dead. Finally, she recieved news that Sam had been captured by the Americans in Paris and shipped to England. She later followed him. They both died here in England.

This information below was taken from documents granted in Poland when the German/Poles had to prove there was no Jewish blood in the family. Frightening isnít it? The MANTEI family were ethnic Germans living in Poland at the outbreak of WWll.



My husbandís father was Samuel MANTEI b. Turbowice 6 March 1913. Samuels father was Rudolf MANTEI (b. 1885/86) who married first Marie SCHULZ and secondly Olga SUTZE. All records are marked Posnan and Evang-Lutharian Church Lowenstadt. Sam MANTIE would have had step brothers and sisters.

Other names are Else FECHNER, Daniel FECHNER, Emanuel FECHNER, Juliana RADKE, Justine SCHACHTSCHNEIDER, Samuel SCHULZ, Adam SCHULZ, Rosina FANDRICH, Gottfried FANDRIK, Moriama SCHINKEL and Johnna ZOLL.
