Kalman ABRAMOWITZ, death 1944 #israel

Yonatan Ben-Ari

I have a picture of the tombstone of a Kalman ABRAMOWITZ. The
tombstone, which is in hebrew (alone) notes that he deceased in 1944,
that his parents were Yitzchak and Zlata, and that he was "Ish
Yerushalayim" ( man of Jerusalem).

I have a great greatuncle by this name whose father was Yitzchak and
he lived for several year in Jerusalem but there are several
differences between our records and the tombstone: Our Kalman's mother
was Gittle (not Zlata) and my uncle died in 1941.

I don't know if the two are one and the same and either the head stone
may be mistaken or our records are incorrect. Also, does "Ish
Yerushalayim" mean the the deceased was born in Jerusalem or had lived
here. My uncle immigrated to the usa from Novarodok and spent a few
years in Jerusalem (he was married to a woman from the Rivlin-Porush
family of Jerusalem) but most of his life lived in New York.

I would be happy to hear from anyone who knows that he is related to
the above Kalman ben Yitzchak and Zlata ABRAMOWITZ who died in 1944.
