Re: Jewish refugees in Tashkent during WWII - Moroz

Dave Lichtenstein

Hello Everyone - this is an extremely interesting and personal story for me.  As I understand that my late mother then Felicia Heringman ended up there in transit during WWII.  Sadly she went to her grave in 2004 with many secrets - but what I can ascertain is that when Poland was invaded by the Nazis she escaped eastwards only to fall into Soviet hands.  (The Russian invasion of Poland as a result of the Ribbentrop-Stalin pact).  After being arrested she ended up in Siberia and the Stan States including Uzbekistan and then Persia (now Iran).  If there is any information on her during those harrowing years I would appreciate even only her registration in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.  However, I understand, as a matter of survival she changed her persona, age including religion so once again tracing records may prove difficult but I would be happy for some one to prove me wrong.

With best wishes
