Heinz Moshe Gadiel (1910 – )

Kurt Gadiel (13/02/1912 – )

Erich Gadiel (1914 – )


One-time proprietor of her father's business in Langendorf (probably after her husband's death in 1931).

Her Gleiwitz residence card shows that from 01/03/1939 Hermine, who was by then a widow, lived in Gleiwitz at Tarnowitzerstasse 8.

Gleiwitz residence cards exist for other Gadiels at the same address:
  • Erich, date and place of birth unknown, date of residence unknown, moved to Augsburg;
  • Kurt, born in Langendorf on 13/02/1912, emigrated to Bolivia in 1939;
  • Caezilie born in Gross Lassowitz (where Emil was also born) on 07/05/1878 who had lived at Tarnowitzerstrasse 8 since 1934, an unmarried sister of Emil (her card is marked "Frl" = Fraulein).

Hermine and Caezilie were deported on 20/05/1942. Erich Gadiel, a son of Hermine, presumably the Erich mentioned above, submitted a testimonial to Yad Vashem stating that Hermine was deported Riga. However, another Yad Vashem record says she was deported to Auschwitz concentration camp.
