Subject: Searching for lost cousin in Berlin Kindertransport

My first cousin, Dina Wassermann, when she was a year old, was put up for "adoption" by her mother who was my aunt, Marie Wassermann (later married to Hermann Spicker), because of the threat of deportation to a concentration camp. My aunt Marie put her one year old baby (born approx. April, year--1938), in the spring of 1939, in the Jewish orphanage in Berlin called "Yudisches Sauglings Heim", located on Neidershon Hausen,Exergier Strasse, in Berlin. Then, she wrote to us (we had just emigrated to America) in 1939 that she had given up her daughter for adoption to an English couple, as she told us, and we believe this may have been a kinder transport. At any rate, my first cousin, Dina Wassermann, is probably living in England, and may be searching for me. By the way, my grandparents lived at 52 Ryke Strasse, Berlin, and my mother's whole family was murdered in the Holocaust. Any information--would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
