Dear Genners, The following description takes me >from the Aufricht family
(my own) to the Broder famil (in-law family). Answers to the questions at the
end are what I am researching.
Bertha AUFRICHT BRODER was born in 1879 in the town of Zablocie ad Zywiec,
the daughter of Henriette Kohn and Samuel, Aufricht and lived at Zamkowa 4
Apartment 522 in Rzeszow (according to a 1910 census), along with her husband
Izydor BRODER, born in 1872 in the town of Bochnia, and her son, Jozef, born
in 1905 in the town of Brody. When Jozef was 3, the family moved to Rzeszow
where they lived at 2 other addresses according to the 1927 census. Bertha/
Batyia died on April 16, 1967, at the age of 88, in Ramat Gan, Tel Aviv, Israel.
Izydor BRODER was born in 1872 in Bochnia, Malopolskie, Poland. His parents
were Benjamin and Breindel. Izydor had a brother, Dr. Leon BRODER, an attorney,
who was married to Lydia Irene SZANCER. They had married in Ostrava
Czechoslovakia >from whence she came. Leon and Lydia had 2 boys, Jan, a noted
chemist who was killed during the war and Artur who survived. Before the war,
Jan and Artur lived in a rented apartment at Basztowa 23 in Krakow (>from a 1932
census). During the war, Artur registered for a Jewish ID card in 1937. After
the war, Artur changed his name to Brodsky and lived at Straszewskiego 24 in
Izydor married Bertha (Batia) AUFRICHT BRODER on March 22, 1904 and they lived
at Smolensk 28 according to the 1932 census record. They had one child, Jozef,
born in 1909. He died at the age of 36 in a Russian gulag. Izydor died in 1947
at the age of 75 in Krakow and is buried in the Jewish cemetery there.
While Bertha (Batja) Broder lived in Israel, she submitted 11 testimonials to

2. Dr. Jan Yokhanan BRODER was born in Zablocie, Poland in 1902 to Leib and
Lidia. He was an engineer and married to Zelma (Selma) nee DATZ (SHATZ). Prior
to WWII he lived in Zablocie, Poland. During the war he was in Stanislau.
3. Selma (Zelma) BRODER nee SHATZ (DATZ) was born in Krakow, Poland in 1910
to Arie and Aliza. She was a clerk. Prior to WWII she lived in Krakow, Poland.
4. Elizabet BRODER was born in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland in 1903 to Herman
and Freida. She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in
Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland. During the war she was in Kamionka StrumiÅ?owa,
Poland. (Submitted 12.5.1957)
5. Lidia BRODER was born in Tarnow, Poland in 1877 to Artur and Sharlota.
She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in Krakow, Poland.
6. Oskar CYMEND (ZIMAND) was born in Lwow, Poland in 1890. He was a bookeeper
and married to Felitzia nee Broder. Prior to WWII he lived in Kamionka
Strumilowa, Poland. During the war he was in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland.
7. Klements HECHT was born in Hranice, Czechoslovakia in 1908 to Arie and

Shmuel and Ester. She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in

10. Alfreda ZIMAND was born to Felitzia nee Broder. She was a child. Prior to
WWII she lived in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland. (Submitted 1.5.1955)
11. Felicia ZIMAND NEE BRODER was born in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland in 1904
to Herman and Frida. She was a piano teacher and married. Prior to WWII she
lived in Kamionka StrumiÅ?owa, Poland. (Submitted 1.5.1955).
It seems that Felicia Broder married Oskar Zimand (Cymend) and they had a
daughter Alfreda. Felicia's parents were Herman and Frida Broder. Feliciaâ's
sister was Elizabet Broder who was also married but it is not clear to whom.
Klements Hecht is a total mystery.
I understand how Bertha (Batja) is related to Heinrich Aufricht, Elise Aufricht
Weinheber and Nathan Weinheber. I also understand how Bertha through marriage to
Izydor Broder is related to his brother Leon and Leon's 2 sons Artur and Jan.
However, I cannot understand who Felicia and Elizabet Broder are and who their
parents, Herman and Frida are. If anyone can help unravel this mystery, I would
be very appreciative.
