    Meyer family
    Bob Ralph Meyer was born on 31 January 1939 to Ernest (born Ernst) and Lotte (née Weil) Meyer in Amsterdam. Ernest was born in Cöln (Cologne), Germany on 15 July 1903 to Karl (Carl) and Amalie Meijer. Lotte was born in Stuttgart, Germany on 26 September 1908 to Julius and Margaret (née Kann). In 1933, Lotte and Ernest left Germany for the Netherlands before the war. They were married at a synagogue in Amsterdam in 1937. Following Germany’s invasion of the Netherlands in 1940, Bob went into hiding living with another married couple until after liberation in 1945. Ernst and Lotte lived in hiding with a doctor’s family. At age 6, he was reunited with them and they eventually immigrated to the U.S. in 1948 and stayed in New York for a short time. They settled in Denver, Colorado, and had another son, Tom. Ernest and Lotte became naturalized U.S. citizens in 1953.
