A mysterious box of old war documents from a family who escaped Nazi Germany were left at a Bondi door step.

The incredible box of history was found by a woman in eastern Sydney 15 years ago and now she wants to find the family. 

Living at Flood Street in Bondi at the time, Heidi Blackwell wrote in a Facebook post that she found the ‘treasure trove’ of German documents and photographs sitting in an orange cardboard fruit box.

‘This was an unknown family’s precious paperwork detailing their escape from Nazi Germany via Shanghai to Sydney, Australia,’ Ms Blackwell wrote.

‘These files are a veritable treasure trove and contain photographs, birth certificates, school reports, bank statements and more going back to the late 1800s.

‘Their names were Necha and Werner Fink.’

After forgetting she had the photographs, Ms Blackwell said she stumbled across the box of ‘most precious files’.
