A few years ago I tried this and had been put on the trail of the wrong
family. So I'm trying again.
Is there any one who can help me locate Moses LUSTIG who was living in
Ashkelon in 1971 or members of his family. His Father was Abraham. His
Mother was possibly Rachel Itte (Kempler). According to a document
found on Yad Vashem filed by her brother Zev SCHVITZER, she perished in
Nowy Sacz so I am unsure if she is his Mother or if Abraham might have
remarried. I do not know if Moses was married or not. Uncles' name
he would know are Benjamin and Natan/Nathan. Nathan passed away in, I
believe Ashkelon, in the spring of that year. After having lost his
wife and daughter in Auschwitz, Nathan had remarried and has a
stepdaughter and granddaughter also living in, I believe, Ashkelon in
the 1960s-70s. I don't know if he married in Poland or Israel.
Benjamin (my Grandfather) perished in Auschwitz. The Moses Lustig I am
looking for would have been visited by cousins Lily and Renee in 1971.
It is said he (we) have family in Toronto, but so far I have not been
able to find the right family there either. This is the address I had
recieved for the wrong Moses Lustig in 2002: Hadekel ##.
I know extremely little about this side of my family as my Grandfather
left Nowy Sacz/Limanowa, Poland for Dortmund, Germany and for
complicated reasons had little to no contact with his family. I know
that my Grandfather had numerous brothers and perhaps 1 sister but don't
know how many for sure. These are the names I have found for my family:
Ascher born/died 1888
Moses born/died 1893
Benjamin Hersh born 1900 died about 1942 married Lea Elisabeth KLINGER
Abraham born 1902 died? married Ruchel Itte KEMPLER
Nathan born ? died Spring 1971 married? married?
Their parents were:
Jakob born? died after 1926
Rifke IMOFF (also shown as Fink) born? died?
I realize this is a difficul request but I've run out of options.
Thanking all in advance for help and/or guidance,
