Hello. My name is Katerina Kamenetsky.
I'm looking for information about my grandfather Kamenetsky Mark Pavlovich. He was born in 1913 in the village Tsaul (formerly called village Gorodichul) of the Tarnovo region of Moldova. Over the years, this village belonged to the Khotinsky, Yassky, Balti and Soroca counties.
His parents are Pavel Markovich Kamenetsky and Lyubov Gershonovna. Unfortunately, I only know these names as they appear on my grandfather's birth certificate.
My grandfather had three brothers, I don't know their names yet. My father worked at a sugar factory (sugar beet processing) as an agronomist (beet grower).
Mark Kamenetsky (my grandfather) graduated from the gymnasium in town Soroca in 1931. In 1940-41. worked as an elementary school teacher in the village of Denzhany, Oknitsa district. Their relatives, the Weisman family and the Perelman family, lived in the village of Zguritsa. We assume that the surname Perelman is the maiden name of Lyubov Gershonovna.
During the Holocaust, my grandfather's parents and brothers died in the Transnistrian ghetto or on the way there.
Since the Weissman and Perelman families were in the Bershad ghetto, I assume that the Kamenetsky family was also there. Mark Kamenetsky wasn't a ghetto prisoner. He was mobilized into the labor army, and in 1942 he was evacuated to the Sverdlovsk region. According to the stories of his relatives, he was an invalid from childhood, he limped.
After the war, he, his wife and children, returned to live in Moldova, maintained relations with the survived relatives Vaisman and Perelman. I also keep in touch with some of them now.
I would be grateful for any help and tips in finding information about our Kamenetskys. I also expect answers from the Red Cross organization and the Chisinau archive.
I am sending this photos of my grandfather Mark Kamenetsky and the Weissman family. Sheiva Weissman (Perelman) - the sister of Lyuba Kamenetskaya (Mark's mother)
Best regards, Katerina Kamenetsky
