German/Polish Translation Required from ViewMate #germany

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

Hello SIG members,
I just came across these documents belonging to my Grandparents -
Joel and Fajga GEWIRCMAN and I am baffled by the fact that these are >from 1942 and
contain Nazi stamps.

What I knew >from them is that they continuously dodged transports by
use of fake documents portraying them as a Polish-Catholic family - Schepula.
I marked specially areas in RED to narrow down required translation.
If anyone can add information on this issue or document type - please do.

The documents can be found in ViewMate:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3D5996 - My
Grandmother's card
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3D5997 - My
Grandfather's card

The following is supposedly a copy of their marriage certificate.
I would appreciate a word-for-word on this doc.
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3D5995

Please reply to me privately. Thanks in advance,

Tamar Amit Givatayim, ISRAEL <tamar.amit@gmail.com>

Re: DAEFELE or DEFELE surname origins #germany

Alice Josephs
 

Thank you to those who replied on the origin of DAEFELE or DEFELE. Both
Ralph Baer and Lars Menk connected it to a dimunitive of the David,
with Lars giving me my own family's adoption of this surname in
Kochendorf as the source of his information on this surname. It does
still appear to be an unusual name. Thanks!

Bukovina was the easternmost "crownland" (a province or district
encompassing numerous cities and villages) of the Austrian Empire.
Today it is split between a portion of western Ukraine and northern
Romania. During Austrian times (pre-WWI), it became a prominent
center of Jewish and Yiddish culture.

The former capital of Bukovina, Czernowitz (today Chernivtsi), is
located in the Ukraine. More information on this city can be found

Re: Naming a son after a brother? #general

She wouldn't. Most likely she named the son after the same grandfather the
brother was named after - or another Moses on the other side of the family.

MAHLER and MOCKIN born Pieszczaniki, Poland (near Bialystok) #general

Mark Halpern
 

My grandmother, Chana GERSZOWICZ, was born in Pieszczaniki (coordinates
5308, 2334; 17 miles east of Bialystok) in 1884. Apparently her family
was living there at the time due to her father managing or working at a
textile plant near this town.

I have been searching for information about this town and its Jewish
residents for nearly 10 years and have not found anything until now.

Recently, I was using the Yad Vashem Central Database of Shoah Victim's
Names and, on a whim, searched for "Location = Pieszczaniki."
Unbelievably, two Shoah Victim names appeared. If anyone knows of either
of these people or any ideas for further research, please contact me
privately.

1. Dawid Berisch MAHLER, born 28 December 1886 in Pieszczaniki. Died 03
September 1943 in Auschwitz. Source of data was "In Memoriam -
Nedelandse Oorlogsgravenstichting (Dutch War Victims Authority)

2. Malka MOCKIN/MOTZKIN, born 1897 in Pieszczaniki, wife of Avraham,
living in Michalowo before the War. Died in Bialystok in 1942. Source of
data was Page of Testimony submitted by AREZ, sister-in-law on 26 March
1957.

Thanks for your help,

Mark Halpern

I am searching for Mozes Blumenberg >from Tyczyn, Poland, born June 1920.
He is the son of Hene (Eisen) and Jonas Blumenberg, and got >from Tyczyn

Just to add to the confusion there were some villages in the crownland of
Galicia that were called Bukowina (about 10 of them). That is also the
precise spelling of the name of the Austrian Province. "Bukovina" (with a
"V" instead of a "W") is an anglicization of the spelling.
