I'm a Founder of AncientFaces and support the community answering questions & helping members make connections to the past (thus my official title of Founder & Content and Community Support ). For me, it's been a labor of love for over 20 years. I truly believe with all of my heart that everyone should be remembered for generations to come. I am 2nd generation San Jose and have seen a lot of changes in the area while growing up. We used to be known as the "Valley of Heart's Delight" (because the Valley was covered with orchards and there were many canneries to process the food grown here, which shipped all over the US) - now we have adopted the nickname "Capital of Silicon Valley" and Apple, Ebay, Adobe, Netflix, Facebook, and many more tech companies are within a few miles of my current home in San Jose (including AncientFaces). From a small town of 25,000, we have grown to 1 million plus. And when you add in all of the communities surrounding us (for instance, Saratoga, where I attended high school, living a block from our previous Mayor), we are truly one of the big cities in the US. I am so very proud of my hometown. For more information see Kathy - Founder & Content and Community Director
My family began AncientFaces because we believe that unique photos and stories that show who people are/were should be shared with the world.

Walter Moshe Yitzkhak Schotten of Vienna, Vienna Austria was born on June 9, 1935 in Vienna, Vienna Austria, and died at age 9 years old on June 15, 1944 in Oświęcim, Lesser Poland Voivodeship 32, Poland.
"The Germans can't get hold of me, auntie, I run so fast that I can run my way!" This is what 6-7-year-old Arvid Claes is said to have said to his aunt Mimmi. Presumably he has heard the adults talking worriedly about the future. Arvid, born on the national day itself 17 May 1935, was enrolled in first class at Kampen school in August 1942. The Germans had taken over the school building, so during the three months Arvid was at the school, teaching took place elsewhere. This autumn, older sister Ida Iris started the 7th grade at Kampen school. The two children lived in Brinken 23 with their father, Alexander. German occupation had already cast long shadows over the small Jewish family for over two years. As if that wasn't enough, the year before Arvid and Iris had lost their mother Anna. Aslaug Nygaard, who today lives in Norderhovgata, remembers Iris, who was in her sister's class. She was there to pick up Arvid from kindergarten - perhaps after his mother died? Alexander Claes came to Norway as a nine-year-old in 1913. Parents Ruben and Sofie Claes immigrated from Latvia with four sons, and established themselves as market traders on Youngstorget. Alexander did well, he trained as a master hairdresser and had a hairdressing salon in Bernt Ankers gate, with men's and women's hairdressers next to each other. The family had both a piano and a telephone in the apartment in Brinken, not so common in Kampen at that time. Alexander was engaged in illegal news distribution, from the back room of the ladies' hairdressing salon. Like all male Jews, Alexander was arrested on October 26. He probably tried to pretend to be ill, because in November he was at Ullevål. Two of his brothers succeeded with exactly this strategy, and eventually made it to Sweden. This was not the case with Alexander. He and his two children (as well as the grandparents and a brother with his family) were deported on the MS Donau on the morning of 26 November 1942. Twelve-year-old Iris was admitted to Ullevål with gouty fever. With a high fever, she was transported down to Akershuskaia on a stretcher, despite the protests of doctors and nurses. The children were killed immediately upon arrival at Auschwitz. Alexander lived a few months. On the support above the victims of the war in Kampen schoolyard, the name of Iris is written, but for some reason not Arvid. In June 2014, all three members of the Claes family were honored and commemorated through "stumbling stones" in the street outside Brinken 23, on the initiative of Kampen historielag.
