Information about the applicant Mordechai Wizer:

Mordechai Wizer arrived in Palestine in 1933. Spouse: Nili Wizer arrived in Palestine in 1935, with the trip paid for by her parents Emil and Erna Reich.

Mordechai’s parents are Zvi and Tzila Wizer. Nili’s parents are Emil and Erna Reich.

Mordechai and Nili Wizer’s children are daughter Tzila (age 4) and daughter Miriam (age 6 months).

Other relatives in Palestine are Nili’s brothers Karl Reich, a soldier in the RAF (Royal Air Force), and Paul Reich, an electrician, who lives in Nakhalat Akhim, Jerusalem.


The soldier Karl Reich, who also wants his parents to emigrate, commits himself to support his parents Emil and Erna Reich, together with Mordechai Wizer. A separate application from Karl Reich has been filed.

The Reich parents needed the entry visas prior to

being put in the ghetto. Did this request work?
