At the request of two friends, Rosa Leader Smith and Susan Leader, I am
trying to help them find the current locations of and establish contact with
their relatives in Argentina, and I would greatly appreciate assistance in
Leibe KADISHEWICZ (perhaps also known as Leibe LEADER or Leibe KARP) was
born in the l880's in or near Slonim or north of Slonim in Lide, currently
in Belarus. He was said to have been living in Bialystok in Poland in the
early l930's. It is not certain whether he perished in the Holocaust, or is
buried in Santiago del Estero, Argentina.
As of l981 it was known that Leibe had grand- and perhaps great
grandchildren living in the Buenos Aires area of Argentina. In a typed
letter to Rosa and Susan's parents in that year, Leibe's youngest brother
provided the following information on the names and addresses of their
relatives in Argentina:
Laura Galeamoff, Pasaje Beir ***, ** San Martin, Buenos Aires Provincia
(Female?) Kadischewich, Pasaje Natal ****, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Jose and Flora Soifer, Avenida Juan B. Justo, **** Piso 4/10, Buenos Aires,
There also may have been a Sylvia and a Lea Soifer (?)
Please contact me privately if you can suggest how we might locate these or
any direct descendants of Leibe Kadischewicz currently living in Argentina.
Thank you very much.
