Hanna Hamburger has honored her grandfather Raphael Marx, who was born in Stein am
Kocher, Germany, in 1850 and worked as a butcher. She saw her grandfather several
times a year and spent a few weeks with him in the summer. He loved to play cards
and go for walks; Hamburger notes that “he was a good man and I remember him always.”
He was killed when he was living with his daughter Lydia in Amsterdam. The Nazis
threw him down the stairs, killing him; he was 90 years old.
