That is very exciting indeed!
My father was 8 years old when he was in Soldau. How old were the son and
daughter? What a coincidence that they arrived 6 days apart. My father
stayed there for a couple of months.
Have you heard any stories about Soldau, or do you only have your
information from the EWZ records?
I have the EWZ records as well (although half of them is unreadable,
unfortunately), and my father has a few memories as well.
He remembers it as being an ok nice place.
One thing in particular that he remembers is that the Lager had a
hairdresser, and that he got his hair cut there.
I looked at your blog to see if you had written anything about their escape,
and that you wonder about when they did actually leave Kiev? Did you manage
to find any information?
My next blog post will be about the escape, so perhaps that would be of
interest to you <http://genealogyquest.wordpress.com/>
In the meantime you might want to check out this blog
iev-page-2/#comment-394 There youll find the most amazing drawings from
Kiev in the fall of 1943.
My father was touched by your reply, and that you were able to give an
address as well.

This is very exciting. My mother's mother's family must have met your
My two great-grandparents, son and a daughter were at Soldau-Lag. Bluecher,
Haus Koeln, Zim. 3. They came on December 12, 1943 by XXVII Sonderzug.
My mother's mother's family is half German and half Russian. My
great-grandmother was German who was born in Bialystok, Russia, (now
Poland). She met her Russian husband in Kiev, where my grandmother and her
siblings were born. They left Kiev during German occupation by using my
great-grandmother's German ancestry.
I have obtained my family's EWZ files that are filled with information.
