I just received the information on my grandfather's nephew's name,
for the first time. Thanks to Eden Joachim and JRI-Poland, I now
have the name of someone we know lived through the War, in Israel,
but has not been seen or heard >from since. What I do not understand
is that his given name is Mozes, but my grandfather and his sister ,
Hene (Moses' mother) also had a brother named Mozes, and I know for a
fact he not only lived through the War, but came to the U.S., landing
in upstate NY (Oneonta? Oswego?) after having been released >from a
Camp in Italy. I have yet to hear, at least in my family, of a child
who was named after a living relative, let alone a brother. Mozes
Eisen is indeed Mozes Eisen, because I have a copy of his birth
certificate, so there is no possibility that he "adopted" the name
when he came here.
Does anyone know why this might have occurred?
