The mother of Rolf Moritz Rosenfeld, Bona (Bonna, Berta, Benna) Rosenfeld, who is also listed in this memorial book, came to the Home of the Jewish Women's Association in Neu-Isenburg in the last weeks of her pregnancy. Rolf Moritz Rosenfeld is born in the Israelite Hospital, Gagernstr. 36 in Frankfurt/Main. After they moved to Bad Cannstadt. Here the mother worked as a housemaid; for her son she found a place in the Israelite orphanage ''Wilhelmspflege'' in Esslingen. Here he was enrolled at school in 1935.

In August 1939 the orphanage was seized, he came to a Jewish Family in the Hospitalstr.36 in Stuttgart. From 31 July 1942 until 14 August 1942 she stayed with his mother probably  in Dellmensingen. After he returned to Stuttgart.
