In 1914, the name Saint Petersbourg was supposed
to be too much German and became Petrograd. In
1924, in memory of Lenine who just died,
Petrograd was named Leningrad.
Concerning Abraham LEVIN, yes, indeed, his name
appears on some list of deportation, as born in
"Cheloupe" (Russia) on 3 July 1896, died on
9 March 1943 in Lublin-Maidanek (Poland). Bu I
could'nt find his name in the "Memorial of Jews
deported >from France", by Serge Klarsfeld. It may
be mean that there are some errors in the
details. It seems that name "Cheloupe" doens't
appear anywhere else. I may be wrong. I'm going
to search again.
Emile LEVINE (with an "E") was born in LENINGRAD
on 7 November 1921. He was deported to Auschwitz
on 23 September 1942 with the Convoy #36.
