Else Kamnitzer (born 1912) was a young photographer in Eydtkuhnen. In 1939 she went to Berlin and married Ludwig Neumann, a student of dentistry from Königsberg. The young couple fled from Germany to Lisbon. From there they arrived in New York by ship in May 1941. Here the couple, now calling themselves Newman, settled. Elsie Newman died in 1999 and we are looking for photos she took and other information about her.
