"You would go to work each
morning and see the houses
in the neighborhood go up in
flames each night," Baum
0 ". said.
When Rose and Henry
finally met, Henry was im-
pressed. "I was very
chauvinistic — maybe I still
am — but I wouldn't play a
girl at ping-pong. But she in-
sisted and I had to struggle to
win."

T

he Baums came to the
United States in 1948
and were married the
following year. Money was
tough at first. Rose eventual-
ly managed a store's book
department and Henry was
offered a teaching job by Alex
Roberg, principal of United
Hebrew Schools.
Henry earned bachelor's
and
master's degrees and a
I"
doctorate from Wayne State
University.
Marion Alflen was reunited
with her parents in England.
They all moved to America.
The family was sponsored
in Detroit by Charles Lang's
sister, Risa Spitzer, who own-
ed the Spitzer Grocery on
12th Street.
The day after arriving,
Alflen fell and broke her arm,
ending up in a hospital and
also in a Detroit newspaper.
"Finds Blitzkrieg In Detroit,"
went the headline, "Girl
Unhurt In Nazi Raids Breaks
Arm In U.S."
This resulted in speaking
invitations and a scholarship
from Delmar Beauty School
to finish her training.
, Edith Maniker recalls the
train full of children from
Leipzig to Roterdam. "I never
saw my grandparents,
parents, aunts or uncles
again." Her father and
mother were caught in
Greece.
Edith was reunited with
her sister at the end of 1942
and the two lived together in
London for five years, moving
to the United States.
They lived with relatives in
Detroit.

Hans Weinmann said his
father had only recently been
released from the Dachau
concentration camp when he
and his brother departed
Vienna. "His head was still
pretty much shaven and it
I" was a heartrending goodbye
because I don't think they ex-
pected to see us again."
Hans sailed from England
in 1940 for America.
Hans served in the U.S. Ar-
my in World War II and then
0,, worked 35 years as an
engineer for General Motors.
Weinmann's father died in
Detroit in 1946. His mother
lives in the Jewish Home for
Aged. ❑
