Brody, Ukraine Vital Records #galicia

Joyce Eastman <wldwoman1@...>
 

Thanks so much to all of you who responded to my request for the location of
vital records >from Brody, Ukraine (Poland) for the years 1878-1900's. There
really does not appear to be much hope - other than a couple of
possibilities which appear on the Brody Shtetlinks website, under Brody
Research (as suggested by Marjorie Rosenfeld). I am hopeful that either
some of the records I am seeking are among the "church" records already
photographed by the Mormons >from this time period, or else they are possibly
located at the civil archives in Warsaw. It appears that this is my only
hope to ever find later records of my father's family >from this area, which
may also assist me in finding living relatives >from this side of the family.

I have used Alex Dunai as a researcher in L'viv and even corresponded with
Miriam Weiner about the existence of these records, and neither one has been
able to tell me where to find this information. As I do not believe in
giving up, I will pursue the suggestions noted above and will let everyone
know in the event of my success.

Jewish witnesses in Rava Ruska and Gorodok in the autumn of 1944 #galicia

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

A few years ago at Yad Vashem while looking for information about Rava
Ruska, I found a document with 196 pages under the file number M33/723 - all
in Russian!
Additional numbers written down on the front page were JM/10594 and
"Original Number 7021 - 67 - 78".

This was "File of what the German occupants did in Rava Ruska and Gorodok"
and "File of how Soviet citizens died in concentration camps in Rava Ruska".
The report was the work of one of the special committees set up by the
Soviet authorities to investigate war crimes committed by the Germans.
During September and October 1944 this specific committee interviewed 30
witnesses - Poles, Russians, Ukrainians and Jews.
I do not read Russian, but with the help of my students - new immigrants
from the former Soviet Union at the time - we transcribed the names and
basic information about the witnesses.
Today I was looking through some of my files and "rediscovered" this list.
If any of your relatives gave testimony for this committee,and you do not
know about about it, here is a list of the Jewish witnesses and the page
number in the file where their testimony starts.
I am quite sure that Yad Vashem is willing to photocopy the relevant pages,
for a fee, if you find something of interest.
The spelling of names should of course be taken with some caution.
I have not read the testimonies themselves.

The Jewish witnesses:
ALTKORN Guak born 1926 in Gorodok Page 186
ALTSHULER Chaja ( daughter of Shlomo) born 1925 in the village
Kamenka-Voloska Page 149
BLIASBERG Gersh/Hersh (Savley) born 1912 in Rava Ruska Page 57
CHAUSSY Jakob (son of Michael) born 1905 in Konotop Page 11
INGBER Shakner (son of Jakob) born 1903 in Gorodok Page 190
KLAGER Moissey/Moshe (son of Jehuda) born 1892 in Nemirov Page 4,Page 28
LEWKOWICZ Fanfel (son of Samuel) born 1920 in Krasnystaw Page 44
MANDAL Isaak (son of Israel) born in Gorodok) Page 169
SHAINEIGER Abraham ( son of Aron) born 1912 in Gorodok Page 188
STARKMANN Iliya (son of Simon) born 1910 in the village Brusno Page 51
STENGEL Rachel(daughter of Markus) born 1923 in the village Karuv Page 152
TENZER Shimon (son of Pinchas) born 1903 in Tuczyn Page 153
WAINBAN Osher, born in Gorodok Page 174
WEINFELD Abraham (son of David) born 1906 in Drogobych Page 22
ZONE Maria (daughter of Abraham) born 1924 in Belz Page 53

Another important part of this report were seven schematical maps showing
where people had been murered around Rava Ruska.
I will tell more about these maps on another occassion.

Re: Records for Brody, Ukraine #galicia

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

Joyce Eastman asks where to locate records for Brody, Ukraine, especially
for the years 1865-early 1900's.

There are many different kinds of records available for Brody, some for the
years mentioned. For a rundown, see the Brody ShtetLinks site at:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Brody/brody.htm

If you scroll just a bit more than halfway down the page, you'll find the
Brody Research section.

You may also want to consult the Brody Cemetery database at the ShtetLinks
site, even though the database given there is only about 50% complete. The
URL for the database is:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Brody/brody_cemetery_database.htm

For more information about the database, including whether or not the
missing 50% has any information about your relatives, you can contact Dr.
Ben Solomowitz or Dr. Neil Rosenstein. See:

The KATZINS of RIGA #latvia

Adam Yamey <Aandl.Yamey@...>
 

I am new to Latvia-SIG.
My name is Adam Yamey and I live in London, UK.
Most of my research interests lie in Jewish families which left Germany and
Lithuania to settle in S.Africa and USA.

I am a descendant of the KATZIN family which originated in Plunge,
Lithuania. One of the Katzins seems to have lived in Riga. This is what i
know of his family:



Israel Katzin

Israel Katzin probably lived in Latvia. He was married to Marianna
HIRSCHBERG. They had eight children who survived into adulthood.
*
Birgit (Gittel) Katzin

She was the oldest of Israel's daughters. She was a very beautiful woman who
married Dr Max FISCHMANN, a doctor in Riga. They had three children:
Seraphim (Seric), Beatrix and Olga. The Nazis murdered all Olga, her
parents and her grandparents. Seraphim and Beatrix survived the Second World
War because they were at school in Switzerland at the time. Soon after the
war these two children returned to Riga to look for any survivors of their
family. They were unsuccessful. They have never been heard of since their
return to Riga. A rumour has it that they were taken off to Soviet Central
Asia as were many children of the once rich and powerful families of
countries occupied by the Russians.
*
Rachel (Rachelle) Katzin

Born next after Birgit, she was a charming lady who married a young medical
doctor >from Frankfurt in Germany. Lived in the United States. Had two
daughters: Isabelle and Evelyn both of whom lived or still live in
California.
*
Agnes (Agnessa) Katzin

Born in 1888, she graduated >from Dorpat University in Estonia. She married
Dr Michael SCHENK (born 1880). His doctorate was in chemistry and other
subjects, but not medicine. They had one child, a daughter, Sylvia Johanna
Schenk (1914-1976) who married in 1937 Peter Ben FREEMAN (a writer in the
USA). Agnessa, her husband and daughter migrated to the United States and
thereby escaped the Holocaust.
*
Nathaniel (Nathan) Katzin

Nathaniel was the first son of Israel Katzin who survived into adulthood.
He died a bachelor in the town of Vereenigung, the town in which the treaty
ending the Boer War was signed in 1902.
*

Philip Katzin

Went to South Africa with his brothers. He married and had three children:
Sonny, Bob and Dolly. Dolly married a Mr PRICE (Purvetsky).
*
Louis and Moritz Katzin

They also accompanied Nathaniel to South Africa. Moritz was a very talented
mathematician. Along with Philip, Louis and Moritz were involved in business
ventures with Cecil Rhodes and probably also the Barnato Brothers in the
diamond fields of Kimberly. Nathaniel was an investor in his brothers'
business but not actively involved.
Louis and Moritz had children. Some of their sons flew in the RAF and died
in the Battle of Britain.
*
Wilhelm (Wolf, Bill) Katzin

The youngest of Israel's children Wilhelm married Sonja, a friend of his
sister Rachelle. Sonja had at least one parent of Estonian origin. Bill
was an engineer who specialised in railways and invented a number of things
including the 'piggyback' railway car. He died when his two daughters, Leona
Belle and Mary Joy(born 1932), were very young. Leona Belle was an artist
who died in the 1980s. Her younger sister Mary Joy adopted the name Marie
and married a Roumanian aristocrat, Count JORGULESCO.

Can anyone add any more to this information? Does anyone know any of the
above or their descendants?

Kitchener Camp, Great Britain #unitedkingdom

Robert Fraser <rgfraser@...>
 

I have a couple of questions about this refugee camp, which was established on the coast of Kent in
1939.

I'd like to know who actually ran the camp. Was it the British government or was it a Jewish refugee
organisation? I have been told that a family named MAY had a big hand in it. Also, who funded it?
The cost of the rebuilding, the food and the pocket money the inmates got must have come from
somewhere.

Any ideas appreciated.
