Harry Oesterreicher reports:
My father was Arthur Oesterreicher, son of Jacques Oesterreicher and Kathe
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.
Milena (Oesterreicher) O'Connor - 1957
Suzanne (Oesterreicher) Freudberg - 1959
Jennie (Oesterreicher) Kerwood - 1960
Brian Oesterreicher - 1963
