However, as I have just researched and discovered his naturalization papers, what struck me as odd was his journey from his birth in the small town of Schubin in eastern Germany (and now known as Szubin in Poland).
This journey took him and his parents and younger sister Hanna to Berlin as refugees in the early 1920s. It is likely that Heinz worked in his father's bicycle shop while in Berlin.
But as the Nazis took control in the 1930s - it was Heinz who was the first of his family to escape. He left Germany for Palestine in March, 1935.
As is evidenced by his naturalization application shown below, he traveled from Haifa to New York City in 1937. And changed his name to Henry Heinz Hart.
He joined the U.S. Army in 1943 and was stationed in Mississippi. It was there that he applied for American citizenship.
I would venture a guess that he was the only person who ever lived who resided in Schubin, Berlin, Brooklyn, and Mississippi.
