Curtis L. Mann, a lawyer and Holocaust survivor, died Saturday (July 25, 2009) at Brooking Park in Chesterfield. He was 83. Mr. Mann was born in Frankfurt, Germany. At 13, he boarded a Kindertransport which would take him to England. “The children were of school age, from about 6 to 17, and they had one thing in common: They were the lucky ones… This was an escape from almost certain death in the extermination camps of the Holocaust,” Mr. Mann wrote in a 1989 article.
