LIEBERGAL #general

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

The US Holocaust Museum has a reference to two brothers Josef and Marian
PIKOLC (b. 1930 and 1929) living as refugees in Bytom Poland in 1946. Their
parents are listed as Mendel and Anna or Podwoloczysk. The Jewish community
of Bytom (yes, there is one today) has no record of them and we have no idea how
long they were there or what became of them.

Mendel is an uncommon PIKHOLZ name, but I have a suspicion that this Mendel is
the son of Moses LIEBERAL and Sure PIKHOLZ of Skalat. (I know that at least one
of the six children of this couple was in fact born in Podwoloczysk.)

That leads to the possibiity that the brothers later went by Liebergal or some
derivative thereof. I have begun checking the usual sources - JGFF, US phone
books, Israeli sources and of course Bytom, but thusfar have not found anything.

If anyone has anything on someone who might be one of these two brothers, I'd
be pleased to hear.

I'm searching for Holocaust survivor Arnold JUSSEM and/or his descendants.
He was last seen in Vienna before he left for Palestine. Perhaps that unusual
surname will show up on some Hebrew language directories.

==I believe colors were often added to names to indicate hair color; Weiss was
the whitehead and Schwarz the dark-haired .

When skin tones were used to differentiate among people it would be:

D [or T] unkel[mann], for dark, and Bleich for pale. Possibly Lichtmann might also
have meant light-toned.

Re: Terms of Endearment and the Yenta #general

MBernet@...
 

While we are on this thread - what would one say about being called Yenta The
word Yenta is also somewhat perjorative, at least in USAyiddish ("she's such a
yenta"), where it's a sort of gossiping busybody. Actually, it's a Romance first
name, Gentile, that made its way about a thousand years ago, up the Rhine and
through Germany to the East.

Gentile does not mean non-Jew in this context. It is still in normal use today in
French to mean kind, nice, pleasant--and became transmuted in English usage to
gentle.
