Kurt Moser

29 Years

Kurt Moser was born on 24 June 1912 in Bochum.

He emigrated with his mother to Holland in 1935. In 1937 he became a partner in the ladies fashion business of Ruben Kan and the Levy brothers in Tiel. The business was closed in September 1939. They left for Haarlem in the summer of 1939. Just before the outbreak of war in March 1940, Kurt reported at Werkdorp and started to work as a farmer. After the Werkdorp was evacuated on 20 March 1941, he found shelter with the Gerzon family in Rubensstraat, Amsterdam. He belonged to the June group. This means that he was arrested together with 56 other Werkdorp people during the 2nd razzia in Amsterdam on 11 June 1941 and deported via Schoorl to camp Mauthausen. Kurt was killed there on 26 August 1941.

His mother was transported from Westerbork to Sobibor on 13 April 1943 and was killed immediately upon arrival. The fate of Kurt’s father is unknown.
