Herszek (Tzvi) Wigdor CHAMITA #general

Dina Hill
 

I recently learned of another name attached to my maternal grandfather. He
was killed in the Holocaust. I hired a researcher in Poland several weeks
ago who has been doing a fabulous job.

Has anyone ever heard of the name Wigdor? Is that a middle name or is
it a surname??

My 2nd great grandmother was Nena Rokenmacher but on her marriage license to
my great great grandfather Abram Chamita, her name appears as Nena Rokenmacher
Baserrman.

I learned >from my researcher and >from the documents he has obtained for me
that sometimes people in Poland were born with 2 last names such as the case
above with Nena and also with my daughters' paternal
great great grandfather Aron J. Chil (aka Bercowicz). He actually
had 2 last names on his birth certificate.

I've never heard of the name Wigdor. Have you?

Thank you in advance.

Searching: APTEKARZ, HELFMAN, ROKENMACHER, BESERMAN, ZYMERMAN,

MODERATOR NOTE: Familiarize yourself with the JewishGen Given Names database.
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/search.htm
In this case, specify Poland as the country under the European-to-Foreign seach
box. Both Wigdor and Chil may be shortened forms of first names used in Poland.

Searching for husband of Szajndla AIGENGOLD #general

Helen Gardner
 

Dear genners

I now know quite a lot about my AJGENGOLD/EIGENGOLD/AJZENGOLD family, but I
have one big mystery left, without which I cannot connect the family of Dr
Jakub AJGENGOLD 1894-1971 (changed his name to Jan John ALDON in the US) to
my family tree. (I have stressed Dr Jakub so as not to confuse him with his
cousin Jacob AJGENGOLD 1897-1993 who went to the UK either just before or
during WW1 and changed his name to Jack AIGENGOLD.)

Dr Jakub's mother was Szajndla AJGENGOLD, nee ZOLBERG/ZALBERG 1861-1931. She
married a second time, surname GLIKMAN, but Jakob is definitely the son of
her first husband AJGENGOLD. On his application for naturalization in the US,
Jakub/Jan John gives his father's name as Micezststaw. This makes it likely
that his father was Menachem Mendel AJGENGOLD, son of Abraham AJGENGOLD
married Zlata Mindla FRYDMAN.

AJGENGOLD is an uncommon name and they are all the one family. Abraham &
Zlata AJGENGOLD did have other male children. It can't be their son Izrael,
died 1858, or their son Jakow, b 1883. It isn't their son Rabbi Chaim
because he married twice; once to Rachel and once to Sara Furtzeig and I have
independent data on who his sons were. There are a couple of M AJGENGOLDs who
went to the US in the late 1890s but other data make them unlikely.

I don't know when Menachem Mendel was born, but he died in 1918 in Warsaw. If
he was Szajndla's husband that left her a 57 year old widow who could marry
again. Her son Dr Jakob was 24 years old at that time.

I could use this logic to say that Szajndla'a husband was Menachem Mendel and
add the family to my tree, but Warsaw records are known to be incomplete and
I'd really, really, like some more concrete evidence.

Can anyone please help?

Regards
Helen Gardner

(Belarus) Belarus Building Site Yields the Bones of 1214 Holocaust Victims #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

An April 27,2019 article in the New York Times relates how a Brest, Belarus
building site yielded the bones of 1,214 Holocaust victims. Construction
workers who had been working on foundations for a new apartment building
along with soldiers pulled human skeletons >from the earth. Over the three
months since this excavation of bodies began the bones of 1214 people, are
thought to be Jews slaughtered by the Nazis, when Hitler invaded Russia. At
the time Belarus was part of Russia.

The construction was stopped partly due to the condemnation by the World
Jewish Congress who called the construction project "an affront to the
memories of the Jewish residents of the city who were shot and murdered at
that very site." Before World War ll, Jews represented half of the city of
Brest's population of 60,000. The Brest Jews were thought to have been
killed in a forest about 70 miles east of the city. While it was known that
some massacres against Jews occurred in the center of the city the number
was thought to be far less than the 1, 214. It is thought these were Jews
who had initially hid or fled but were then captured by the Nazis after the
ghetto was destroyed in October 1942.

The Soviet army reconquered Brest in 1944, but by then only a handful of
Jews remained. One of them was future Israel Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

There is controversy about whether the luxury apartment building should
still be built on the site or whether it should be fenced off and turned
into a "memorial park" for the Jews who were murdered.

JGSCV May 5 Annual Yom Hashoah Program: Documentary The Forgotten Ones: The Story of Yugoslav Jewry -- US Premiere #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County's
annual Yom Hashoah* program is Sunday, May 5 1:30-3:30 PM at Temple Adat
Elohim 2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks.

Yom Hashoah* is actually commemorated on May 2 ?beginning at sundown the
evening of May 1. However, JGSCV is commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day
on Sunday May 5. Thanks to JGSCV member Joanne Cadis we are privileged to
be showing a documentary on the Holocaust in Yugoslavia. It is the first
showing in the United States. Yugoslavia lost, by percentage, the largest
percentage of Jews: 85 percent and in one part of Yugoslavia it was as high
as 95 percent. The documentary was developed by a group in Israel of
Yugoslav survivors and descendants.

Program:
The documentary: The Forgotten Ones: The Story of Yugoslav Jewry brings to
light, for the first time, the Holocaust of the Jewry of former Yugoslavia.
German Nazis, Croatian Ustashi, Hungarian Fascists, Bulgarian occupiers,
nationalist Serbs, partly Italians, and even the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem,
all played their different roles in the Holocaust of Yugoslav Jewry. It was
an old community >from the time of the Second Temple and the expulsion
of Sephardi Jews. Ashkenazim and Sephardim, living in harmony,
developed a special culture. In the film, 30-year-old Stella sets
out on a journey full of revelations to investigate how the
Yugoslav community was destroyed in the country without
anti-Semitism before the war and what happened to her
great-grandfather, who was crowned Righteous Among the Nations, by Yad
Vashem.

The documentary is in Hebrew and English with English subtitles. It runs 74
minutes.

Schmoozing Corner:

The schmoozing corner will begin at 1:00 PM and is facilitated by Marion
Werle.

Traveling Library

The traveling library with our A and D books, which includes our Holocaust
collection. A list of which books are included are listed on our website
http://www.jgscv.org/ under library and traveling. This is available
starting at 1:00 PM.

For more information about JGSCV and directions to Temple Adat Elohim please
visit our website, www.jgscv.org .

There is no charge to attend the meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV. Annual
dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family.

Looking forward to seeing you on May 5.

Jewish ancestors from Rypin in Poland? #general

Arne Feuhrer <arne.fuehrer@...>
 

Dear JewishGen Discussion Group,

I have today registered at JewishGen in order to find out more about my family
history on my mother's side. I live in Germany and both my grandmother and my
mother are deceased. With the little information I have about my mother's
family, I have not been able to find out much via the databases of JewishGen.
But maybe this discussion group can help: My grandmother, Frieda Szymanski,
was born on 26 July 1925 in Gross Pulka in the district of Rippin (today:
Rypin) in what was then West Prussia and is now Poland and she grew up in
nearby Zduny. Her father, my great-grandfather, Emil Szymanski, was also born
in Gross Pulka (district of Rypin, now Poland) on 27 February 1888. Her
mother, my great-grandmother, Mathilde Maria Szymanski, nee Neitsch, was born
on 5 July 1899 in Polnisch Troschin (also now Poland). I am grateful for any
information that might help me to find out, if my mother's family may be of
Jewish ancestry.

Many thanks and best wishes -

Seeking information about KATY WROCLAWSKIE #poland

Gerald and Margaret
 

I have just found the answer to an illegible address in Kanth, Silesia
(now Katy Wroclawskie in Polish). It is Kirchestr Church St -
Kosciola ulica in Polish. This was where my paternal grandparents had
a drapery business and lived above the shop with their 3 children, one
of whom was my father.

This is the first step towards applying for Stolpersteine to
commemorate my grandparents, Frieda (nee Masur) and Adolf STEIN, who
were one of only four Jewish families in a small town , 12 miles by
train >from Breslau.

The other families included Dr HEIDENFELD, one of two family doctors
in Kanth. He delivered the 3 STEIN children. Dr Heidenfeld, his wife
and one daughter were murdered in the Holocaust: his other daughter, now
in her late 90s, lives in London, Another family was called JUNGMANN;
the 4th had a shoe shop. Does anyone know anything more about these
3 families,..I would love to make contact, especially if we could
commission more Stolpersteine.

Does anyone have experience of Stolpersteine in Silesia, Poland?
