    A message for the children of Lucia Capelluto Habib : have you heard from your mother of a Lucia Habib, daughter of Bohor Habib and Regina Hasson, born in Rhodes on 27/02/1920, deported from Rhodes on july 1944 ? She was my cousin. Curiously she is not on the list of the deportees. Her parents as well as her two brothers Leone and Vittorio were assassinated in Auschwitz. We got the information through Giuseppe (Peppo) Mallel who survived. Thank you for any information you can give me on Lucia. Bohor was the eldest brother of my father Vitali.
