Historical

Her name appears in a Shanghai migration file (Box #10, Bundle #6). She was headed for Australia and may have died in HK while waiting for onward passage. She may have been travelling with her daughter Olga.

Simon and Rosa were still in Shanghai. A Leopold Huber (b. September 7, 1898, Budapest; d. May 26, 1977, Sydney) was already living in Sydney at the time of her passing. He may have been another son. There may have been another daughter, Regina (b. August 11, 1894, Budapest).

In 1954, an Olga Chilf was living at 139 Old South Hill Road in Bondi (Sydney). There were no other Chilfs living with her.

Simon’s gravestone says that he was a husband, father and grandfather. It appears that Rosa never married. Strangely, his inscription says “Simcha b’r Avraham” while hers says “Sarah bat r’ Yaacov”. Did they have different fathers?

There was a Fritz and a Hans Huber living in Shanghai in 1939. No idea if they were related.
