Charlotte Feldhorn Obituary
November 23, 1914 - December 19, 2016 Charlotte Feldhorn passed away peacefully on December 19, 2016 at the age of 102. She was born on November 23, 1914 in Vienna, Austria, the only child of Samuel and Augusta Hauptmann. After her husband, Julius, was taken to Dachau concentration camp (and later transferred to Buchenwald), Charlotte made almost daily trips for a year to Gestapo headquarters in order to beg for his release, despite the fact that she was pregnant when he was taken. After securing his release in January, 1939, Charlotte, Julius, and their infant son, Earl, made their way to New York City in order to start a new life. Many of Charlotte's relatives, including her father, were not as lucky, and were murdered by the Nazis. The Feldhorn family, now with two more sons, moved to Los Angeles in 1956, and then to Beverly Hills in 1969. Charlotte moved to Santa Rosa in January, 2016, in order to be closer to her sole surviving son, Sanders. Charlotte was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Julius, and two of her sons, August and Earl. She is survived by son Sanders (Laureen) and grandson Nathan. Funeral services will be held on Friday, December 23, at 11:30 am at Mount Sinai Memorial Park, 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068. Donations in her memory may be made to Congregation Shomrei Torah (Santa Rosa), Sinai Temple (Los Angeles), or the .
