Dear Fellow Genners:
I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members from
Lucenec and now look to all of you to see if any names ring bells in
your areas of study!
Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie STOSSEL, had 4 children: ARANHA,
b.1876, OLGA, b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz
BREUER (1846-1924) and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also had children: BIRO (name changed in infancy >from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though if the women married and moved away,
tracking them becomes much more difficult. Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
listed in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.
I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!
