This record MAY NOT belong to this family's Kalman Klein because the age and religion does not match. According to this and/or other passenger lists, Kalman Klein was born about 1903 and was Catholic. However, these records are not being removed until it can be determined definitively. There are similarities to this family's relative: Hungarian, same name, and approximately the same age. Also, there is no question that this family's Kalman lived in Argentina during this timeframe.

Note: On this shipping record, Kalman Klein's marital status is listed as "do." Apparently, this is just like using "" in a list. And above his name, the next entry is "solt." That would mean "soltero" or "single." Nationality is "Ungaro" - Hungarian. The age is listed as "27." Per birth record, on July 10, 1930 Kalman Klein of this family would be 29. However, it's possible that the age is wrong.

Note: My father, Meynhert Klein, during the few times that he spoke to me about his life during the Holocaust, would describe the last time he saw his mom and sister Bella leaving on a train. I don't know when or where this occurred. And looking back now, I failed to ask the many questions that fill my head now. I'd like to believe that my inaction was because my father would be teary during these moments, and I didn't want to cause him any more pain. I hope it wasn't because I was too young and self-absorbed. But I can't say.

Also, there is no question that this family's Kalman lived in Argentina during this timeframe.
There are three types of passengers:
"Argentinos" - which must be people considered to be argentinian
"extranjeros residentes en la republica argentina" - which translates to "Foreigners residing in Argentina"
"extranjeros no residentes en la republica argentina" - "Foreigners not residing in Argentina."
Kalman is identified as a "Foreigner residing in Argentina."
He also has an "documento de identidad" number. The foreigners not residing in Argentina do not have any such number.
Besides age and sex, there is a third category which is "Estado Civil" - Martial status.
Kalman's marital status is listed as "C". Married in spanish is "casado." Some other passengers have an "S" next to their name which would likely have meant that they were single - "soltero."
He had also traveled First class - "clase en que viaje."
In other words, by 1944, Kalman was married, a resident of Argentina, and was traveling first class on ships. Of course, I could have gotten this all wrong.
But this fits in from what my parents told me about him. He was in Argentina long before 1944 and was married (with kids).

This record MAY NOT belong to this family's Kalman Klein because the age and religion does not match. According to this and/or other passenger lists, Kalman Klein was born about 1903 and was Catholic. However, these records are not being removed until it can be determined definitively. There are similarities to this family's relative: Hungarian, same name, and approximately the same age. Also, there is no question that this family's Kalman lived in Argentina during this timeframe.

Note: Marital Status "c." This likely means "casado" - married. The place of residence is "H. City Bs. As." I'm not sure what "H. City" means. "Bs. As." must mean Buenos Aires. Also not sure if it's the province or city of Buenas Aires.

On this shipping record, Kalman Klein's marital status is listed as "do." Apparently, this is just like using "" in a list. And above his name, the next entry is "solt." That would mean "soltero" or "single." Nationality is "Ungaro" - Hungarian. The age is listed as "27." Per birth record, on July 10, 1930 Kalman Klein of this family would be 29. However, it's possible that the age is wrong.

Also, there is no question that this family's Kalman lived in Argentina during this timeframe.
There are three types of passengers:
"Argentinos" - which must be people considered to be argentinian
"extranjeros residentes en la republica argentina" - which translates to "Foreigners residing in Argentina"
"extranjeros no residentes en la republica argentina" - "Foreigners not residing in Argentina."
Kalman is identified as a "Foreigner residing in Argentina."
He also has an "documento de identidad" number. The foreigners not residing in Argentina do not have any such number.
Besides age and sex, there is a third category which is "Estado Civil" - Martial status.
Kalman's marital status is listed as "C". Married in spanish is "casado." Some other passengers have an "S" next to their name which would likely have meant that they were single - "soltero."
He had also traveled First class - "clase en que viaje."
In other words, by 1944, Kalman was married, a resident of Argentina, and was traveling first class on ships. Of course, I could have gotten this all wrong.
But this fits in from what my parents told me about him. He was in Argentina long before 1944 and was married (with kids).
