About Max Vielgut
Max Vielgut fled Vienna in ’39 only to be captured and held in camps in Vichy France until he ultimately perished at the hands of the Nazis. Vielgut’s frustrating three years in those camps, all the while trying to obtain visas for his father and himself, were personalized and humanized by Robert Rockaway, native Detroiter, now Professor Emeritus, Department of Jewish History at Tel-Aviv University, from copies of Vielgut’s letters to his sister in the U.S.
Max Vielgut was a singer and single. Escaped from Vienna to the south of France in 1939 but was captured and transported (transport 30) from Drancy to KZ Auschwitz on 9.9.42.
