Marcel Baum (1924-2014) Deli Professional/Holocaust Survivor

This week, WeRelate looks at the Person Page of Marcel Baum, born 16 March 1924 in Kreuznach, Germany, son of Moritz Baum (1892-1925) and Lucienne "Laure" Lippmann (1900-1986). Marcel grew up in Laufersweiler, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, in the town where his father owned and operated a local bakery. Marcel's father Moritz Baum passed away a few months after Marcel's first birthday, and he was raised by Isidore Joseph (1897-1971), who married his mother Laure in 1929. Marcel's Person Page details his life during the the Holocaust, where he was detained in Nazi Concentration Camps in Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen, and his subsequent immigration and life in America after World War II. This Person Page, is a good example of the type of Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
