On a More Personal Note

A Dinner to honour Mr & Mrs Joseph Cohen in 1919 and an ode written about Joseph Cohen. John Neville Cohen


 

The Birmingham Russian Jewish Association honour Mr & Mrs Joseph Cohen, for his help as a solicitor,

plus 'An Ode' composed by Zola Sonin aged 11 years December 1918.

"In unknown places of this earth,
Live people who to fame are unknown,
Much more than Statesman are they worth,
More precious are they than a precious stone."


 
Refugees

Mr & Mrs Joseph Cohen took in refugees and included them as part of their family.  Amongst others, the ones I knew of, were Peter Rosenthal, Eva Lewkowitz and Ruth Marchand.  

But they had such heartache over two of them, I remember how upset and sad for many years, my Grandmother was over Peter's death, he was killed in an accident in Hagley Road where he was run over by a bus.  In his excitement at being accepted by the boy scouts, he forgot that in England they drive on the right and looked the wrong way.  His parents did not survive, but his Uncle and Aunt live in San Francisco and always kept in touch.

My Grandparents and all our family loved little Eva, she was adorable, but especially to them having only had boys.  But one day her Mother without warning, having escaped, rang the doorbell and demanded having her daughter back immediately, she had no time to talk to them because she had a taxi waiting and although she was invited in and shown Eva's bedroom and told how much they loved her, she simply grabbed a few of Eva's things and took off with Eva.  Sadly, they never heard another word from the Mother, or Eva. 

Ruth also always kept in touch with our family and now lives in New York.
