HistoricalAccording to the 1941 juror’s list. Max was the parts manager at General Motors (China) in HK while Moses worked as an engineer for HK & Whampoa Dock Company.

Moses was naturalised in the UK on August 10, 1948 under reference number HO 334/257/4497. He was married to Nadejda Victorovna Krivoroochko of Chita, Siberia. They had a daughter named Barbara Ann Dietrich (b. 1946).

It appears that Max, Moses, his wife and daughter, and Myron all immigrated to Brazil in the early 1950s. Max and Myron were living at 1246 Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, Apt. 902, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. Moses and his family were living at Hotel Castro Alves on Avenida N. S. Senhora de Copacabana, Room 805. Moses’ in-laws immigrated to Brazil at the same time. The Krivoroochkos had been living in Shanghai.

Max died in Rio de Janeiro on January 3, 1961.

Her parents died three months apart in 1925 and were buried in Shanghai.
