Hanan Aharon Cidor (1960)


German-Israeli diplomat, he worked for the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was Israeli Ambassador to the Netherlands from 1957 to 1963.

He was the younger brother of Bauhaus student Paul Citroen. In October 1925, he married artist and writer Ruth Vallentin in Berlin. At the time, Hans Citroen was a furrier (1905-1985); his family came from the Netherlands. Later in Israel the couple changed their surnames to Cidor.

After the transfer of power to the Nazis in 1933 Hans Citroen had to sell his fur shop on racial grounds, and the couple emigrated to France with their daughter Charlotte (born 1926), where Hans Citroen went into business in Paris. Their son Vincent was born there in 1934 and their second daughter Eliane in 1939. Ruth Citroen received orders for the design of children's books from the Flammarion publishing house.

During the German occupation of France in 1940, the family fled to Vichy France. In the fall of 1942, the family made a dramatic escape across the snowy Alps to Switzerland, arriving in a refugee camp in Geneva. In 1952 they emigrated to Israel. Hanan Aharon Cidor died on 8 March 1985 in Jerusalem at age 79.
