Request of information about my grand-mother NACHA WOLMAN BERNARD #poland

Sarah Mayer <sarahmayer22@...>
 

Dear fellow jewish genealogy subscripters.

I am looking for information about the family of my grand-mother Nacha
Bernard born Wolman in Gabin (Gombin) Poland in 1907.

She was the daughter of Tobjasz Wolman and Balka Goldman. I don't know
if she had siblings. She moved to France and married my grand-father
Raphael Bernard in Paris in January 1931. He was born in Wloclawek
Poland in 1904. Both of them were deported >from France to Auschwitz
where they died in 1942.They had two children. My father was the only
survivor of the family.

I would like to know if anyone has information about the Goldman and
Wolman families >from Gabin, especially about possible siblings or
cousins of my grand-mother. I found that a Wolman family >from Gabin
emigrated to the USA at the beginning of the 20th century but I don't
the relationship with my grand-mother.

I posted the only photograph that I have of her. It was taken in Paris
in 1932. On the right is my grand-father Raphael and on the left his
brother Luzer that also died in Auschwitz after being deported from

ITS Adds 900,000 Post-War Records Making Over 2 Million Records Available Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The International Tracing Service (ITS) added 900,000 post-war documents
online. This brings the total of number of documents freely available in the
online archive to over 2 million. One can search by name. The newly added
documents contain approximately 405,000 names of Holocaust survivors, former
concentration camp inmates and forced laborers. They were under the care of
the International Refugee Organization (IRO) in Austria, Italy, Switzerland
and England after World War II.

In June, ITS published its files >from the German Displaced Persons in
June. This makes it possible to search online for nearly one million names
of Displaced Persons (DP) registered and surveyed in DP camps within the
framework of the Care and Maintenance Program.

The DPs filled out questionnaires as a way the International Refugee
Organization (IRO) could find out whether it could help these persons and if
so how. The personal stories of the DP persons are delineated in the
questionnaires and provide better insight as their lives.

To search the online archives go to:

information you are using is solely for research purposes and in accordance
