I have just learned that a relative of mine was one of the Dunera Boys.
Our family lost track of this man and his parents in the mid-1930s, but I now know, from the Australian and UK Archives, that he was on the Dunera and interned at Hay and Tatura. He returned to England in 1942 and joined the British Army — I assume the Pioneer Corps. I’ve also learned that shortly after returning, this individual, Gerhard Steinfeld, became a UK citizen and changed his name to Gerald Stanton. Other than his address in 1948 (38 Ladbroke Grove, London, W.11.) I have no additional information. It is possible that Gerald/Gerhard is still living and/or he has descendants in the U.K.
Gerhard Steinfeld was born 31 March 1921 in Breslau, Germany
Gerhard Steinfeld was born 31 March 1921 in Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland), son of Georg (Gideon) Steinfeld and Eva Steinfeld (nee Pieck) of Breslau. If anyone knows something about Gerald I would appreciate contacting me either through this list or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. (I am a cousin on the Pieck side of his family.)
