We are searching for the ROTH / ROHAN families originally from Ostrava in Czechoslovakia.

Rudolfina ROTH(ová) nee JOKLOVA, died on 22.4.1943
She had four children:

1- Dr. Lev Roth, who died on 13 Dec. 1942 formerly living at Kudrnova 144,  Praha [Prague]

2- Herman ROTH, .Motol. Heřman
believed to have emigrated to Asuncion, Paraguay. He live there in 1946 and was a businessman

3- Alfred ROTH who was later named ROHAN. He died on 2 Nov 1963, last residence was in Kiriat Yam C, David Hamelech 2/5, Israel.

4- We do not know whether this was a boy or a girl, but we do know that it was the parent of

          1.  Bedriska ELKES(ova)  who lived in Haifa  no. 43 Massada Street in 1947

          2. Vera TRAMER(ová) , aparantly in Tel Aviv in 1947

          3. Katerina (Katia) TRAMER(ova) in  Kfar Rupin in 1947
              Katia seems to have been one of the immigrants into Palestine deported by the British to Mauritius. 
              We believe she has a son, but have no details.

In the course of the research we found at Yad Vasem that a Nurit KATZ from Jerusalem has in 1999 submitted about a dozen Pages of Testimony for members of the ROTH/TRAMER family.  She describes herself as granddaughter of Rudolfina ROTH(ov) nee JOKLOVA.  Unlike most of the pages of Testimony, there was nowhere on the forms to put the submitters address, and so I have no means of making contact with her.



We have also found a memorial to Baruch ROTH, the so of Hermann ROTH at
