    Biography
    Margot (nee Levi) Weinschenk (1912-1996) was born in Stuttgart, Germany to Nellie (nee Strauss; b. 1888) and Max Levi (b. 1886). She had one brother, Walter (1915-1945). She married Paul Weinschenk in 1929. Paul Weinschenk (1909-1986) was born to Gisela (nee Sundheimer; 1880-1980) and brewer Julius Weinschenk (1876-1930) in Nuremberg, Germany. He had one sister, Lilly (1904-1986), who married Sigmund Karl Kohnstamm. Both families left Germany in 1939 to escape Nazi persecution and immigrated to the United States and England. Margot and Paul settled in New York, and Max, Nellie, and Walter settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Lilly, Sigmund, and Gisela immigrated to England. Max, Nellie, and Walter Levi would later change their last name to Lane. Walter joined the United States Army, and was killed in action in 1945.
