JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: massacre of Jewish professionals in Czestochowa #general


Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I recently came across citations about the death of Jewish physicians
during a massacre of Jewish professionals in the Czestochowa cemetery
on March 20, 1943. Does anyone have information about this event or
can direct me to where information about this even can be obtained?
Does anyone know who was killed and who were the perpetrators?

Thank you for your response.

Another JewishGenner has indicated to me that this massacre in Czestochowa
is described in Harry Klein's book "Czenstochov: Our Legacy" (Montreal,
1993; available at more than 30 USA libraries).

I have a copy of a list of these murders. The list is entitled
"Alphabetical listing of 127 Jews, all professionals, shot in Czestochowa."
Here is the document (with, in fact, 46 persons listed):

The Polish in this document can be translated in several different ways.
Essentially, it says:

Persons who were shot:
Believing that they were going abroad [i.e., leaving the country],
they took their families with them [to the site of the massacre].
There were 127 persons shot: men, women and children.
It [i.e., the date of the massacre] was the seventh birthday of
Lili, daughter of doctor Eliasz Wiener, the most beautiful
child in ghetto.

Here, in red, is (thanks to typist Madeleine Okladek) a typed version (not
yet proofed) of this document:

Many of the listed persons are lawyers and doctors.
