Would anyone have an idea what the real name of

Any suggestions? This is a puzzle to the family.

Uranium Steamship Company #general

Ubertrout <Ubtertrout@...>
 

I'd like to learn more about a possible relative who came to America
via the SS Uranium in 1913, >from Rotterdam to Halifax, and then came
by land. I found the ship manifest for the Uranium and the St. Albans
list...would the company/emigration records have anything more? And
do they even still exist?

I know someone who speaks Dutch and can go to Rotterdam to look...I
just want to know if this would be a wild goose chase. Thanks for
your help.

Sincerely,
Zvi S. Rosen

M&MSchejtman <mmschejtman@...>
 

Dear Genners,
The Israeli radio has a daily segment called
"The department for searching lost relatives".
This program was originally aired after the 2nd World War to help Israelis
who survived, find lost relatives.
It has now been reinstated and has over 150 daily requests for searches. only
4-5 are aired every day.
You can listen to this program live on the Israeli radio website for Reshet Bet
http://bet.iba.org.il/ click top left "bet live". The program is aired
Sun-Thurs at 2:45 PM Israel time in Hebrew.

On today's program a man whose name is Gedalia Raff is looking for Boomi.
Boomi is Adolf SPINKEN b. March 1st 1930 in Marmorstigetz.
Mr.Raff received this information>from the Buchenwald registrations.
He and Boomi arrived in Buchenwald >from Auschwitz on 24.5.1944 and were put in
cabin #8.
Boomi's ID number was 551041.
In 1945 they were transfered to a camp in Berg on the Alster. Then the Germans
marched them to Czecosolvakia. They escaped together and found themselves in
Kasczov (spelling?) at Josef Carasek's house. He knew what they were but took
them in anyway and helped them survive till the end of the war. Aferwards each
man returned to his home.
Gedalia, whose name was Jule SERLOWICZ, has looked for Boomi through the Red
Croos, the Central Zionist Archive and the Marmorstigetz survivors or
Landsmenschaft.
He wants to tell Boomi that the family of the farmer Josef Carasek received the

Gen. Ivan Danilovitch CHERNYAKHOVSKI #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The General was said to have been born Jewish, June 29, 1906, in Uman,
Ukraine, and there were others too who were Jewish and killed during WWII
such as Soviet Air Force Commander Yaakov Shmushkevich >from Rokiskis,
Lithuania.

General Chernyakhovski was known to have liberated Lithuania >from the Nazis
and was later killed on February 18, 1945, outside Konigsberg as he brought
his Army between Elbing and Konigsberg.

A statue to him was erected in Vilnius and he was buried there. His family
requested that the statue be taken to the General's hometown in the Ukraine
and he was reburied in the well-known Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow.

Usually, there would be information on the General in the Archives in Moscow
which deal with the military.

You can also read about him at the following Wikipedia site:
