My mother Felicitas Rössler (I have changed the spelling, because I know the name is pronounced Ressler)is originally from Cracow Poland. During the Shoah, she was hidden here in Amsterdam, Holland. After the war was over, she and her parants assumed that no one of their relatives in Poland had survived. What she doesn't know, however, is whether some of them escaped to israel or other places. Her father's name was Mendel Mayer Rössler, her mother's name was Anna Mehl. Her father had three brothers, Adolph, Nathan and Carlos. About Carlos we know he emigrated in the 1920's to Chili. My mother's own two brothers emigrated also to Chili around 1929. If you can tell me anything, even just where to look, I would be very grateful. My mother is 80 years old now, and she is thinking about the past a lot more these days.
