My name is Jacob Rosen >from Jerusalem. I am the son of the late Leon Leib
Rosner (1903-1999) who was the youngest child of Jakub Chiel Rosner
and Ittla Borgenicht. My father was convinced until his death that he was the
only survivor >from his family and barely spoke about his brother and 4 sisters.
He never mentioned their given names or married names.
Last year I managed to find out that a son of my father's siters,
Channa,Reuven Orschutzer (b.1925) survived and lives in Israel.
He gave me the names of the other siblings of my father. Following that I
discovered via Yad Vashem that the son of his brother Abraham Meyer,Rudy
(b.1920) survived as well and lives in Florida.
We reunited last year in Jerusalem (they have not seen each other since 1938).
Now I have more or less the list of my father's siblings:
1. Abraham Meyer b. 1890 in Gdow .Disappeared in the
2. Channa Orschutzer b. 1894/5 in Gdow. Perished in
3. Erna /Esther Susskind b.1896? in Gdow .Perished in
4. Beila /Berta (surname unknown) b. 1897-9 married and lived in Tarnow.
Perished in the Holocaust
Mechla/ Michalina b.1901 in Dobczyce. Was a Communist,married
at a certain stage(surname unknown). Disappeared in USSR.
5. Leon Leib b. 1903 in Dobczyce (my father).
My grandfather Jakub Chiel Rosner after whom I am
named was born in 1866 in Dabrowa Tarnowska to Rubin Rosner and Malka
Perlberg. My grandfather moved around 1905 to Krakow where he had a big
storehouse of coal.
My two surviving cousins are named after our
ggrandfather Rubin. Mechla/Michalina is probably named
after our ggrandmother Malka.
All this info was constructed >from www.shoreshim.org, JRI-PL, Yad Vashem
and my cousins' memory.
I wonder whether any one of you came across these names and may shed
some light on the two aunts of me whose married names are not known to me.Thanks.
