Dates of existence



Julian Schragenheim immigrated to Johannesburg from Germany, in 1934, at the age of ten, together with his parents. His father managed to bring out his maternal grandparents in July 1939, but was unfortunately unable to rescue his paternal grandparents, who died in Berlin, in 1940 and 1941, respectively of natural causes, aggravated by lack of proper medical attention and starvation, as Jews were not allowed ration tickets. His aunt committed suicide just before the final roundup of the Jews in Berlin in 1942, rather than be deported by the Nazis. Julian Schragenheim lived in and around Johannesburg until 1995, when he and his wife moved to George. They came to Cape Town in 2005, when he donated this collection to the Kaplan Centre.
