About Josephine Thannhauser

Was a violinist and may have been gay. Refused to leave Germany in spite of relatives trying to help her to do so. Died on the train to Auschwitz according to family lore (note not to be confused with her cousin Josephine Thannhauser who died in Ravensbruck)

She had a cousin also named Josephine Thannhauser (daughter of Julius) who was born in 1887 and they may be confused for each other in the Shoah records (need to check munich synagogue records again)
