[Biografie] Leopold Hoenig, Anchestors and Descendants, 2009, Chapter 3: With the help of a cousin in Australia Ernst Hirsch (he later spelled his name Hirsh), the son of Meier (!) Hirsch, got the permit to enter New Zealand. He was the first of our family taking the step to go overseas, hoping to be the pioneer for our large family. He left Germany in September, 1938 with his wife Margot and their two boys, Fred and Walter. He settled in Dunedin, where he became the lay leader and teacher to the Jewish community for 40 years until his death of a heart attack on February 17, 1978, a month shy of his 74th birthday (*1904R). Ernst Hirsh gave religious instruction to children and adults and visited the sick and elderly in the southernmost Jewish community in the world. He was secretary of the United Nations Association. His widow, Margot, and their sons, Fred and Walter, and their families, friends and relatives planted 495 trees in Israel in his memory. A plaque in the Dunedin synagogue reads: "Ernst Hirsh, who as lay minister from from 1939 until his death in February, 1978, led the community and gave tireless service to Judaism and Israel."

[Familienforschung] Wolfgang und Gisela Freier 2012, Dr. Walter Hirsch, *1906 Kempen, deportiert nach Gurs, umgekommen in Auschwitz; Sohn von Isidor Hirsch und Johanna Kaufmann 
[Biografie] Leopold Hoenig, Anchestors and Descendants, 2009, Chapter 3: Dr. Walter Hirsch (born September 6, 1906), had a doctorate (PhD.) in mathematics. »Our brother Walter also spent four years at the Jewish local school and then entered the Gymnasium till the year 1926, having made the Arbitur after nine years. Since he was a very good scholar, our parents were pleased with his decision to carry on to study at the University. He was very interested in music too, and also went to the Konservatorium in Krefeld for a good few years. He suffered very much with asthma and had to miss many days of the year in school. But in spite of this his reports were always first class. In fact he was always top man in class. Mathematics and Naturwissenschaft were his choice. He studied two semesters at the University in Freiburg and the following seven semesters at the University in Berlin. He was promoted to Doctor of Philosophy October 6, 1931 at the Humboldt University in Berlin. He was then sent, to work as Referendar for two years to Schulfarm Insel-Scharfenberg near Berlin. However, as soon as the Nazis had come to power his career had come to its end and he was no longer allowed to teach and stood no longer any chance in Germany. He emigrated to Italy where he worked as teacher at the Landschulheim Florence (a boarding school of immigrants' children). They had to leave Italy when Hitler and Mussolini became allies. The boarding school carried on in Nice (then unoccupied France) but they soon fell into the hands of the Vichy government and were trapped again. In spite of great efforts of friends and collegues from the U. S. to save him and bring him over to the U. S., he did not get the exit visa to leave France. For several years he went through various camps: Les-Milles De Gurs and finally to Auschwitz in August 1942. - Professor Albert Einstein had agreed to assist Walter should he arrive in the U. S. He had read a manuscript by Walter regarding the Theory of Relativity to be understood by young scholars.«

[Familienforschung] Wolfgang und Gisela Freier 2012, Martha Hirsch, geb. in Kempen; Heirat 1939 in Neuseeland mit Joe Horn; Tochter von Isidor Hirsch und Johanna Kaufmann 
[Biografie] Leopold Hoenig, Anchestors and Descendants, 2009, Chapter 3: Martha Hirsch spent one year at the Webeschule Krefeld, learning sewing and other useful crafts. Some years later she worked at the Jewish Kinderheim Köln joining up with her friend Erna Servos. Martha was always very interested to make herself useful in social fields and working with children. Generally she took life more seriously than her younger sister Emmy did. This did not always help in every way, but I dare say they got on pretty well. - On March 18, 1939 Martha and Joe Horn from Vorst, only seven kilometers away from Kempen, got married, which was officiated by Dr. Bluhm, Rabbiner of Krefeld. Emigration was the only chance to hope for. Since Joe's profession as auto mechanic qualified so well for immigration to New Zealand, Ernst was very soon successful to get a permit for Martha and Joe to enter New Zealand. In fact, a job was also secured with it. On July 29, 1939 they left via Rotterdam. Whilst travelling on the ocean, the war had broken out and they were stranded on Ceylon waiting for a boat to take them to New Zealand. They finally arrived there late in November, exhausted but saved.

[Biografie] Leopold Hoenig, Anchestors and Descendants, 2009, Chapter 3: Emmy Hirsch accepted a position as Haustochter in the home of the Watermann Family in Bunde, Ostfriesland. She was meant to be the right hand of the mother of the family while enjoying all the comforts of the house and being treated as a daughter of the family. This was 1934~35. Though Bunde was a small town, Ostfriesland was the home of many lively Jewish communities and since Emmy was a very lively person, fairly easy going, she enjoyed her stay with this family very much, and more and more as time went on. The son of the house, Hans Watermann, fell in love with her and it did not take long before the engagement was announced. The family Watermann were corn merchants and did run a well established business in Bunde right by the Dutch border. A branch of their business was in Winschoten only a few miles away, but which was in Holland. They married in 1937. The wedding took place in Rotterdam, where Ben Koppel and his family resided. They were the sister and brother-in-law. Emmy's and Hans' residence was Winschoten, Holland, a very small town with very large rural and agricultural surroundings.
