I am urgently looking for anyone related to or familiar with the
family of Dovid WEISS / WAJS (b. c. 1869, Ciechanow), married to Lea
RAPIPORT (not >from Ciechanow), daughters Gustawa (b. c. 1901,
Ciechanow) and Hadasa (b. 13 May 1912 or 1908, Ciechanow). Dovid,
Lea, and Gustawa perished in the Holocaust. Hadasa, a dentist
practicing in Stoczek Lukowski, and survived, was in Warsaw after the
War with husband Wolf HONIKMAN / HONIGMAN, and later likely immigrated
to America with another husband, Wolf / William ZYTANER.
The Ciechanow yizkor book mentions a Dovid WEISS who was a leader of
the community (president of the kehilla, involved in the schools,
wealthy benefactor, etc.), but I do not know if this is the same
Dovid. Perhaps, survivors might remember him?
If you are familiar with this family, know anyone who might be, or
have any ideas about how to research them further, please contact me
privately as soon as possible.
Thanks very much.
