Re: Bialystok Pogrom - interviews - Meyer Meisler #poland

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

Hi,

I read the interviews. Some of what your grandfather said is consistent
with what I've read about the Bialystok pogrom. I read that some Jewish
neighborhoods were more or less spared because they were inhabited by
Jews organized in occupations such as butchers (that your grandfather
mentioned) who were tuff and prepared to defend themselves and their
families. As I understand it the pogroms were organized and instigated
by Czarist authorities, and carried out by both solders and local
"hooligans".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The ongoing discussion about the Bialystok pogroms inspired me to
transcribe and publish short audio excerpts about the Bialystok pogroms
from two audio interviews of my grandfather Meyer MEISLER recorded in
1976 and 1979. I have put the interviews online on the website about
Meyer's brother Hona MAISLER (www.maisler.org). Meyer was born in
Bialystok in 1899; he came to the United States in 1913.

The year and number of people killed varies in the interviews (1976
interview: pogrom in 1906, 210 people killed; 1979 interview: pogrom
in 1905, 127 people killed). He was six to seven years old at the time
of the 1905-1906 pogroms. My best guess is that he is talking in
both interviews about the 1906 pogrom.

He lived on the street nicknamed Jatke Gas (butchers street), at the
time called Zielona Street (Zielona Verda Strato), now Zamenhofa Street
(named after Ludwik Zamenhof, creator of Esperanto).

The audio for the 1976 interview is of very poor quality (even after
removing much of the cassette noise). The audio quality of the 1979
interview is much better. "???" means the missing words were
undecipherable. CAPITAL letters followed by "???" means the word is
unknown to me but is spelled out phonetically. Any help with these
unknown words would be much appreciated.

Any further information about the Jatke Gas neighborhood in Bialystok
would also be very welcome.

There's not much detailed info in these interviews, but you do get a
certain sense of the experience >from one family's perspective.

A couple of my ancestors became pedlars on arrival in the UK. Are records

makes it easy for students to ask questions and receive answers.
Our past classes in Basic Jewish Research and the Jewish Internet Research

work together as they search for information on names and places of common
interest.
The Internet class offers detailed information on utilizing the Web to find
the information you need to further your research. There's a lot of data out
there waiting to be discovered and this class can help you locate what you
need.
In general terms, the class covers an intro to the internet; searching
general sites and indexes; searching genealogy sites not specifically
Jewish; searching general Jewish sites, indices and resources; searching
