Goldschmidt-Leeuwarden family

Lenchen Goldschmidt-Leeuwarden (1872-ca 1940), married rabbi Goldschhmidt. One son was killed in WW1 the other son moved to the USA.

Lenchen Goldschmidt-Leeuwarden was a sister of my great-grandmother Gretchen Lehmkuhl-Leeuwarden. She married Rabbi Hermann Goldschmidt and moved to Königsberg in der Neumark.

  1. Erich Goldschmidt (1895-1914)
  2. Theo Goldschmidt (1896-1968)

Their son Erich died in the trenches of the first world war. Theo became a doctor and went to New York in 1924. Later, he was director of a hospital in Lebanon (PA).

Lenchen left Germany when she was 73 years old. She arrived on November 8, 1935 as an immigrant in New York with the “Hansa”. She lived the rest of her life with her son who had moved to New York in the 1920's.
