Franz was a lawyer and lived in Breslau in ca 1930, where he was recorded at both his parental home at Viktoriastrasse 114 and with his wife at Charlottenstrasse 46/48. His WWI military service record gives an address in Prausnitz.

Franz sailed from Rotterdam to New York on 24/09/1938; his last residence had been in Berlin, his wife Lotte was still in Breslau at Franz Seldteplatz 8. The Breslau synagogue community address list (ca 1930) entry for this address (under its former name of Salvatorplatz) lists a Max Sonnenfeld and his wife Ida geb. Danziger; Sonnenfeld was the maiden name of Franz's mother Wally but I don't know of any connection between the two families.

He again entered the USA in 1943 from Canada.
