Looking for any information on Otto Julius Lauenstein (1910-1931) or his wife Hedwig Marie Baran (1917-1977)
They had one son, Henry Lauenstein (1936-2012)
Mostly looking for birthplace and family before them.
Hedwig & her son Henry eventually moved to America and lived in Michigan.
Otto fought in WWII and died in the war. I've been told that he was at one point imprisoned at Auschwitz, but was eventually released. His Father (we believe) is Hermann Adolf August (a beer driver) & his mother is Alaida Catherine Gerdes, but we know no information about them beyond this.
Hedwig's mother was Anastasia Loik and we believe Anastasia's father was Lelagia Loik. It also looks like she may have come over to Germany from Poland.
