Harry Oesterreicher reports:

My father was Arthur Oesterreicher, son of Jacques Oesterreicher and Kathe Feldmar. My understanding is that Jacques and Kate brought Arthur first to Paris in 1937 or so. In 1939, they began their flight through France, Spain and Portugal, to Cuba and finally arriving in New York City in 1941. Arthur married my mother, Tybee Jacobson, in 1957. They had five children together, of whom I am the youngest. Arthur had a sixth child with another woman, Lou Ann Collins. I will list my siblings here, and if you are compiling a family tree, I can give you more information, including birthdates and their childrens' names.

I live in Seattle, Washington as does my brother Brian. Milena and Suzanne live in Massachussetts, and Jennie lives in New York state. Our half-sister Lamiel lives in Brooklyn.

All the best, Harry Oesterreicher 5016 20th Avenue NW Seattle, WA 98107 USA Telephone: 206-618-9970
