Many members of the Fine family perished in the Holocaust.

Some we have documented through Yad Vashem, but some we still have hopes that they did survive and hope one day to find their descendants.

We do know the deaths of Aaron, Sophia, Klara and Abram were documented by Yad Vasham Pages of Testimony. These pages were entered by we believe, a cousin of Sophias in 1957. We were unsuccessful in contacting that person.

However, we believe it is possible that German's sons Borja and Paul did survive the war. They were known to be in Moscow, the last they were heard from in April of 1927. Borja was born in 1913 in Bialystok and Paul in 1921. German had immigrated to Philadelphia in the early 1930s.

He tried every way he could to locate his sons all of his life, but was not successful.

We have had the Red Cross research this, but again, we were not successful.
It is our hope, that possibly descendants of Paul and Borja will see and recognize these photos and contact us.

Found...Our hope has come true.
In June of 2010 I had a telephone call from Pavel (Fajn) Ivlev, the great grandson of German Fain. Through a Google search on the Internet he found our site and particularly this page. What a thrill to find the descendants of my great uncle German Fain.
