Surviving Twin searches for twin brother with Auschwitz tatoo A7734 #subcarpathia

Marshall Katz
 

Holocaust survivor, Menachem BODNER, was just four years old when he was
liberated in 1945 >from Auschwitz concentration camp. Now 72, retired, and
living in Israel, Menachem is on a quest to locate his identical twin
brother, last seen at Auschwitz, when the two were separated just 2 days
before liberation.

In May 1944, Menachem and his identical twin brother were transported to
Auschwitz, two months prior to their 4th birthday. Being identical twins,
they were selected and became objects of criminal medical experiments.
Luckily, both survived the war, however, became separated.

One twin was adopted and given a new name, Menachem BODNER. The other
twin was adopted and taken to the USA. Maybe he too changed his name, maybe
even changed his religion---but the only definite link between them is the
number tattooed on their arm.

For the next 67 years, Menachem had no knowledge about his family or twin
brother---knowing only his own Auschwitz tattoo on his arm, which was
A7733.

Red Cross records that were located, show Menachem's brother was alive two
weeks after Auschwitz was liberated, giving him hope that he was still
alive and out there to be found and reunited with him. Also, >from the Red
Cross list, Menachem learned his real name was: GOTTESMAN, Elias.

from the Red Cross records:
A-7733 GOTTESMAN, Elias
A-7734 GOTTESMAN, Jeno

Jeno, with the number A7734 tattooed on his arm, may be your neighbor, a
friend, or even a relative.

We ask that you pass this to appear in your synagogue newsletter, local
newspaper and local television stations to ensure widest dissemination.

There is also a Facebook page with photos and more information:

Thank you.

The Invisible Tatoo, a remarkable story of discovery and survival #general

Michael Goldstein
 

I thought that this is worth sharing with all our Jewish Genealogy Friends. In her
Huffington Post article published yesterday, Marisa Fox writes, "My mother, who's
been dead for almost 20 years, told me a fictionalized account of her childhood."

Marisa traces how she discovered her mother's true identity and the shocking real
story of her mother's hidden wartime experience and survival.

Three well-known members of our Jewish genealogical community play key roles in
helping Marisa uncover the truth of how her mother spent the war years in the
Gabersdorf slave labor camp, how her words in a friend's secret diary - written in
the camp - so dramatically describe the despair of their lives and their hopes for
survival.

General request to all: when making a query, please list relevant sites and sources

There's also this:

from the first one there are links and literature regarding the cemetery and the

Meaning of "Kazan" #belarus

ckreiman46@...
 

I came acrtoss the term "Kazan" in the "June 1893 debtors list >from the Minsk
Gubernya." (see: http://www.jewishgen.org/BELARUS/albell/1893debt1.html).
Is this some kind of fine, or maybe just an annual tax of some sort?
My (probable) ancestor Eliya Berkov Krejman (Kreiman, Kreyman; exact relationship
to my paternal grandfather Barnet/Berko Kreiman still to be determined) was one
of many burghers listed "for payment of his Kazan. arrears in the sum of __ rubles
__ kopeks, for violation of pub laws." His name appears on this list even though
Berezovka is in Vitebsk Gubernia. Note also that I've verified that this is
the Belarus "Berezovka" not the one in Ukraine; another case of a town name
with two places some distance apart. Thanks for your help.

Kupel, Ukraine vs. Kopyl, Belarus - two different places #belarus

Steve Stein <steinsteve@...>
 

I have always believed that my father's family came >from Kupel, Ukraine
(36' N 26 31' E). More specifically, I was told that the town was
in "Volhynia Guberniya." I have visited the grave of my paternal
grandfather since I was a child, at the Kipiler YMBA plot in Beth David Cemetery in
Elmont, NY. Most of my paternal family is buried there.

Occasionally, and again recently, I have been challenged as to whether
this society was actually >from Kopyl, Belarus (listed on Jewishgen as modern
Kapyl, 53' N 27 E), near Slutsk, and more than 500 km away
from Kupel. It is so listed (mistakenly, I believe) on the Belarus SIG site
as being >from Kopyl, not Kupel. Both of these places had significant Jewish
populations at the turn of the 20th century, and each has more than 100
entries on JGFF.

I am eager to disambiguate these two places with respect to my own
research and that of others. Because records >from both these towns are fairly
scarce in the Ukraine and Belarus databases, I am looking for evidence that the
society is for one or the other. The only, and fairly weak, evidence I
have is that my grandmother's second husband was >from Volochisk, which is
only a few miles away >from Kupel, it was always remarked that they lived so
close in Russia but met in the U.S. There are hundreds of Ellis Island entries
under a variety of spellings, beginning with "Kip," "Kop," "Kap", "Kup,"
and "Kyp." Since they were both in the Russian Empire, the country listed on
EIDB does not help.

Do you have ancestors that come >from one or the other? What is your
documentary or anecdotal evidence? Are your family surnames listed in
the Kipiler YMBA records? Those gravestones have been photographed and
entered into JOWBR. Some are also listed on the Belarus SIG site at
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/kymba.htm . Presumably these are the
founders and officers, as the list is incomplete as compared to JOWBR.
Common surnames include ADLER, BALKAN, BARASH, BELLER, FISHER,
FLEISCHMAN,
FOGEL, GERSHKOWITZ, GERTZMAN, GLASSMAN, HEIT, KORMAN, KRAVITZ, LANDER
(a.k.a. LAZDERNIK), NITEKMAN, POLLACK, ROSENBAUM, SEROTTA,

Dear Marshall,

Galician Genealogy Lecture at the Wiener Library - London - May 7, 2013 - Pamela Weisberger, Gesher Galicia #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

If you live in the United Kingdom and are interested in Galician
research -- or are curious about how cadastral maps, landowner, tax
and voter records can be used as an adjunct to vital records --
consider attending my presentation in London on May 7:

"Unique & Unusual Resources in Galician Genealogy"

Tuesday, 7 May 2013
Time: 6.30pm
Location: The Wiener Library, 29 Russell Square, London, England

This presentation will cover the wealth of documents useful for
genealogists, >from the late 1700s through the interwar years, for
Galicia (a former province of the Austrian Empire, today eastern
Poland and western Ukraine) to be found in repositories in Austria
and Ukraine. Covered will be Lviv family registration books, 1920s
and 30s voter lists, Jewish taxpayer and student records, plus
magnate landowner records (like a 1801 list of "Jewish Tavern
Owners in Kalusz.") Take a tour of the Galician holdings in the
Vienna State Archives, including kahal and court cases and
province-wide inventories listing rabbis and teachers assigned to
Jewish schools in every shtetl in 1788 -- the point when Jews
adopted surnames. Learn about cadastral (property) maps,
Holocaust-era census records and passport applications >from
Stanislawow and Lviv and come away with innovative ideas about
how to approach your family research. Many of these records are
now searchable online, so we'll close with information on
searching on the All Galicia Database and the Gesher Galicia
inventory.

Admission is free, but booking is essential as space is very
limited. Click on this link to be taken to the reservation page:

http://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk/Whats-On?item=62

The Wiener Library is one of the world's leading and most
extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era. Formed in 1933,
the Library's unique collection of over one million items includes
published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and
eyewitness testimony.
