Max Mordechai Zwi Stössel

Max Mordechai Zwi Stössel, born 21.07.1880 in Lockenhaus, died 1944, was the father of five children (Wilhelm, Moritz, Sofie, Gertrude and Johanna) and husband of Regina/Recha Stössel (née Blum). Already before 1938 the family moved to Oberwart. Their last residential address in Austria was Vienna 2, Herminengasse 10/3a.

The fate of the seven-member Stössel family (Max and Regina and the children Wilhelm, Moritz, Sofie, Gertrude and Johanna) leaves us speechless. They all wanted to stay together and therefore the parents did not send their two youngest children to England on a possible, and perhaps life-saving, children's transport. In Vienna, a passage to Trieste for the whole family had already been paid for by a forwarding agency, and subsequently it was intended for a Maccabi transport to Bolivia - the Maccabi World Sports Federation tried to help here with an aid fund - but it was too late. The family could not save themselves, they were deported to Theresienstadt in October 1942.
