Berkowitz from Kiev #ukraine

Ze'ev Sharon <zeevsharon@...>
 

Shalom,

The BERKOWITZ (any spelling) family lived in Lyakhowitch.
Father Yekhiel Zvi and mother Rachell had, so goes the story in the family,
14 children.
5 of them immigrtated to Israel in the first years of the 20th century.
One- Simchalle, died as a child (in Russia).
At some stage, Abraham, the elder son got a special permission to live and
work in Kiev
and moved there with his own family and with his mother and father.
It is possible (or: it makes sense) that he moved with his younger brothers
as well.
Abraham was a timber merchant and perhaps his father worked with him.
Abraham immigrated to Israel in 1925 with his wife Dvonia Dvorah and their 2
children: Arie Loba and Raya Raisa.
Yekhiel Zvi died probably in Kiev.
After his death, Rachell, his wife, immigrated to Israel circa 1920.

We lost traces of the rest of the family who stayed behind in Russia.
They most likely died in the Holocaust.
Since we couldn't find any traces in Lyakhowitz, we assume that perhaps they
perished in Kiev.

Can some of the genners help?

short pieces in various books and one summary on a Bialystok website,
but would very much like to obtain more details. I'm interested in
facts, descriptions and firsthand accounts by witnesses. There seems
to be an extraordinary amount of writing on the Kishinev pogrom three
years earlier, but very little on Bialystok. Can anyone steer me to
some good sources?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I have a webpage dedicated to the victims of the 1906 pogrom. Here is a
link, http://www.zabludow.com/bialystokpogromdavidsohn.html

I'm pretty sure there were reports of the pogrom in the press. I don't
know of any first hand accounts.

Family recollections from Bialystok #poland

suprlmn@...
 

Before WW2, our family, SZEJNMAN, lived on Ulica Suiento-Janske, in
Der Nowe, apparently a 'new' suburb of Bialystok, not far >from the
Central Park, according to the map. It was a two story house.
I recall this distinctly because of my mother's telling about the
big Pogrom in 1922, where the Cossaks entered the house and threw her
brother out of a second-story window. He died soon after of multiple
fractures and internal hemorrhage.

I also recall that every Friday afternoon, I would walk with my
grandmother to the baker's. He had already shut down his ovens for
Shabbes but since the heat remained overnight, all the ladies in the
neighborhood would bring him their big, heavy pots of cholent, which
cooked overnight to perfection. Then on Saturday morning, my mother
and I walked to the Shul to pick up my grandmother. On the way home,
we stopped at the baker's to collect our cholent, which was always
our Shabbes noon meal. And was it ever delicious!

At the corner of our street was the Aptek or pharmacist, who always
had candies for me.

Another of my mother's recollections was of her grandmother, Bluma
JASKOLKA, who was very tiny and wiry and was always knitting something
as she walked. On just such a walk, paying no attention to her
whereabouts, she was knocked over and killed by a horse and wagon.

Mama remembered going to high school fairly close by, where she had
to cross a railroad trestle on the way. One day, she and a friend
played hookey >from school in order to watch the new train (a real
novelty then) pass underneath. When it did, it emitted so much
smoke and soot that their faces turned black -- so much for an alibi.

Among other subjects, she studied Latin, French and German, and quickly
picked up all the neighboring Slavik tongues. She used to sing me
lullabies in Latin and French, as well as Yiddish, Polish and
Russian.

I have a number of issues of 'Bialystoker Vegn,' published in Buenos
Airies, and also 'Der Bialystoker Stimme,' published by the Bialystoker
Home in New York. I plan to upload some of the articles to the web site
soon. The ones >from Argentina are in Yiddish and Spanish, while the NY
ones are in Yiddish and English. Expect some photos as well in the near
future.

My Grandfather Michael Caidan came to the United Kingdom >from Russia.
According to the 1901 Census he was 37 and his wife Polly, 31. That
means he was born in 1867. I would like to trace my ancestry and ask if
anyone has information that may be of assistance to me. I believe there
are Kaidans/Keidans in the USA, so maybe we are related. Any help would
be appreciated.

Hello!

The 2nd wife of my 3rd great grandfather R' Yaakov Yitzhak MANDEL
of Wieliczka (1827-1917), called Mirel BIRNBAUM (not sure of the
spelling, could be BIRENBAUM, BIRNBOIM,...), was supposed to be the
granddaughter of R' Avraham Yehoshua HESHEL of Opatow (Apter Rebbe).
Does anybody have informations about the Apter Rebbe / BIRNBAUM

Re: Visit to Vienna #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

I would endorse all the advice given by Celia to Bob Rubin
particularly to make an appointment with Frau Weiss at the IKG.

Last year I had a 3 day stopover in Vienna on my way to the IAJGS
conference in Jerusalem and visited
- the IKG
- the Stadt- u. Landes- Archiv at the Gasometer
- the Zentralfriedhof (the main cemetery) at gates 1 and 4
- the Judische Museum in the Dorotheagasse and the museum in the
Judenplatz ( but did not do any research there).

Based on this limited experience I would add to Celia's comments:

i) send a set of your research objectives to the IKG and the Archiv
when making your appointments.
(an appointment for your first visit to the Archiv would also be advisable)
ii) the Archiv is closed for the month of July.
iii) research at the Archiv is only until 2:00pm (1400)
iv) the cemetery is HUGE. If you know anybody in Vienna get them to
guide/drive you inside the cemetery.
v) if you have some time wander around Leopoldstadt (the 2nd district)
where many Jews lived, and to which the Nazis herded Jews
from other districts of Vienna.
