Husband of Martha Fischbein Heidemann and father of three daughters: Herta Heidemann Steinert, Marie Louise Heidemann Rose, and Inge Erna Heidemann Neumann. The family lived in a villa at Griegstrasse 5/7 in Berlin- Dahlem, Germany.

Siegfried was a retired textile manufacturer, the owner of "S. Wolle GmbH," which was located at Bischofstrasse 19/21 in Berlin-Mitte, and which had factories in Saxony, Germany. Due to German pwersecution, Siegfried had to sell his business, and the villa as well. The family moved to a rented house at Clauswitzstrasse 9 in Berlin.

As the persecution worsened, the family moved again - this time to a rental apartment at Beethovenstraat 132/III in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. That fall, Siegfried went to Zurich, Switzerland and deposited money that hadn't already been stolen in the hope it would strengthen the case to allow Swiss immigration. Before the German invasion of Holland, two daughters, marie and Inge, were ablke to immigrate to the United States and Herta to England. Siegfried and Martha were forced to sell off furnishings to survive. They were forced to wear the Yellow Star and on January 27th, 1943, arrested and taken to Westerbork Camp. They were able to delay deportation by paying brines, but on February 1st, 1944, they both were sent to Bergen-Belsen.
