Regina Lewitt was the widow of Werner Lewitt, a tradesman who died in 1917. Together they had two children, Johanna and Bernhard.

Bernhard (born 1899) served in World War I and emigrated to Holland in 1935. His fiancée, Frieda Kuhnt, followed him in 1936. The couple survived in hiding. After the death of her husband many years later, Frieda Lewitt-Kuhnt returned to Berlin.

Regina’s daughter Johanna married Werner Holz in 1926 and in 1929 her son Jürgen Rudolf was born. In November 1941 she was deported with her husband and son to Riga and murdered.

At this point, Regina Lewitt no longer lived in her home of many years in Holsteinische Strasse. Her last address was on Prager Strasse. In January 1942 she too was deported to Riga.
