Jewish and WW2 survivor families contributed immensely to mankind and our global society. Here at MemoryBox, we show you how.
The Lee-Levi Family
The Lee-Levi family is originally from Wurtteinberg, Germany. Ancestor Berthold Levi immigrated to the United States in the late 19th century, founding a successful sausage packing company in New York City. The family eventually moved to California.
The Falkenstein Family
The Falkenstein family’s story can be traced back to the early 18th century when Jacob Faist and Greta Resge raised their young child in the quaint western German village of Meudt. Interestingly, the family first adopted the surname ‘Falkenstein’ — German for ‘Falcon of the Castle’ — due to the Prussian law of 1866 requiring all families to bear Germanic names.
The Judkowski Family
The Judkowski Family history is summarized by Sylvia Judkowski. She recounts the journey of her parents as they emigrated from Poland to Argentina shortly before the Second World War broke out.
The Sadovitch Family
Solomon Sadovitch recounts his life in Mexico during World War II. His Family struggled with poverty and fleeing war.
The Steingold Family

The Hausmann Family
Parts of the Hausmann Family escaped Germany to New York City in time to be saved, but not all. The memory of Antonia Marie Marcus is remembered through the sharing of this story.
