About Jette Jettel Kahn, II

Jette was born 8 years after the death of her paternal Grandmother Jendel, and was named after her. Jette was Samuel's second wife and sister of his first one. Her maiden name was KAHN too and she was a native of the same small town of Mittelsinn. Jette was her husband Samuel's 2nd cousin Samuel married her after her sister Sprinz died while giving birth to a twin. The girl of the twins died at birth with her mother. The boy survived and was raised by his aunt Jette. He was loved by all but was handicapped and could hardly walk. He never married and eventually was murdered in the holocaust. Jette was buried in the Altengronau, district Jewish cemetery, Hesse Germany, Cemetery Grave List Number 1445 (By Shmuel Katz Toronto. May 2008)

About Jette, from Robert Kahn's autobiography book, chapter #3 page #8 "Though I do recall that grandfather Samuel smoked a very long-stemmed pipe and engaged in bitter arguments with Papa and uncle Moses, and that kindly but ailing grandmother Jette usually appeared before me in an off-white dressing gown and a frilly hood, rather like the grandmother as commonly depicted in illustrations for "little Red Riding Hood".
