About Leon Heinrich Zinn

Leon was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. After the Anschluss of Austria by Nazi Germany on March 12, 1938, he was arrested by the Nazis and placed in Dachau Concentration Camp. His mother was able to release him and he boarded the ship Koenigstein in Hamburg en rout to Central America, in an attempt to flee persecution and death in Vienna. The Jews on the Koenigstein were denied landing in Barbados and in other ports in Central America. At the last moment, before returning to Germany facing certain death, the Jewish refugees were permitted to land in Venezuela, in 1939. Leon moved to Caracas where he later married Regina and fathered Fredy, Roberto and Susana.
