Golombs in Vilna #lithuania


Kasman <family@...>
 

My mother, Jennie (nee Golomb) Kernkraut (1916-2001), was born in Vilna
to Yitchak & Sara Yenta Golomb. Sara Yenta died when my mother was a
young girl - I don't know the name of his 2nd wife.
Yitchak Golomb's siblings were as follows:
Avraham, who went to South Africa c. 1920t
Shayna (Jenny) who married David Fritz & settled in Boston c. 1910
Jack & Joseph, who both came to Toronto c. 1920

Yitchak was the only one of his siblings to remain in Vilna and, sadly,
perished in the Holocaust. My mother survived slave labour &
concentration camps and the Vilna and Lodz ghettos; she lived in
Stockholm for several years following the War, and came to Canada on the
Swedish American Line ship, Gripsholm, in April, 1949, settling in
Toronto.

Just wondering if there are others connected to this family (which
likely was in Shirvint before Vilna) and who would know of its earlier
history.

Yours, Judy (Kernkraut) Kasman
