New list from Lodz Ghetto #poland #lodz

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Lodzers,

One of the most tragic events in the short history of the Lodz Ghetto
were the deportations >from September 5 to 12, 1942, when the children
under 10 and the elderly over 65 were selected for "resettlement" (in
the official terminology), which in reality was murder in Chelmno. The
order by the German administration of the Ghetto was announced in a
dramatic speech by the "Elder of the Jews" Rumkowski, on September 4,
1942 at 4 pm, followed by the announcement no. 391. >from the headline
"Gehsperre" (suspension of movement) on the poster the name "Szpera" was
coined.

The master list of 72 pages (with one nearly empty page) contains 35
names on each page with at least 10 double entries, so altogether there
are about 2,450 names, while the official information was that there
would be about 1,500 on the list. And there is a file of confirmations
slips about the exemption with their names included on the master list,
in most cases personally co-signed by Biebow. There are 14 documented
survivors >from the names on the list, who would not have survived, had
their names not appeared on the list.

With the help of Peter Lande and David Harris I managed to compile an
index to these names (and their orthographic variations) with the
information on the list and annotated information >from other sources. My
Introduction with more detailed information is accessible directly through

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0300_Lodz_1942_exemptions.html

The USHMM has microfilms of the two files, and for a few months now the
Polish Archives has put them online, too, so if you find names in the
list that interest you, you can access the originals through

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/19/1296 and
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/19/1295

among the files of the "Committee for Resettled" (Komisja Wysiedlencza).

For additional information or any other assistance send an email to

fritz.neubauer@uni-bielefeld.de

I hope that through this index more information about the fate of some
of the Lodz Ghetto inmates can be provided.

With kind regards

Holocaust survivor seeks LEVIN, SHKOLNICK, and FRAIZMAN families of Kishinev/Chisinau (Bessarabia) and Tours (France) #bessarabia

Adam Goodheart
 

I'm inquiring on behalf of a friend, a Shoah survivor who is trying to
reconnect with her family.

Her maternal relatives were the LEVIN family of Kishinev, Bessarabia.
All the family information she has is as follows:

My friend's grandparents were Hersh Levin (born Kishinev, Bessarabia,
14 January 1887; died Auschwitz July 1942) and Louise Levin (nee Sura
or Sonia FRAIZMAN or FRAIMAN, born Kishinev 20 July 1895; died
Auschwitz November 1942). Hersh and Louise Levin lived in the city of
Tours, France before the war.

Hersh Levin's parents were Berko Levin (born c. 1850s; died Kishinev 7
November 1913) and Brana SHKOLNICK. Berko was the son of Vulf Levin;
Brana was the daughter of Mikhel Shkolnick. Berko and Brana Levin had
at least five other children in addition to Hersh: Yakov Levin (born
Kishinev c. 1879; married Sura ROIZENBERG), Izaak Levin (born Kishinev
1 Dec 1881), Ruvin Levin (born Kishinev 20 November 1883; married
Khana-Sura VOLOVETZ), Khaym Aron Levin (born Kishinev c. 1885), and
Freyda Levin (born Kishinev c. 1891). My friend was told that one of
the Levin siblings "went to America" at an unknown date and that
another "was sent to Siberia."

Sura/Sonia Fraizman's father was probably either Abram-Chaim Fraizman
or Isaac Fraizman of Kishinev.

My friend was separated >from her parents at a very young age, and her
grandparents left her to be raised by a non-Jewish family in France
just before being deported to Auschwitz. She didn't discover her
Jewish roots until many years later. She would dearly love to find any
relatives and especially hopes to track down photographs of the
grandparents whom she last saw as a little girl.

Any information or research leads would be most welcome.

Jewish hospice in New York? #general

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends -

Thanks to the indefatigable Larry Freund, I now know that my great-aunt Rosa Nagel
spent her last days in a home for 'incurables' in The Bronx; the 'House of the Holy
Comforter', dying in 1962. This establishment still exists.

I'm just curious to know if there were any Jewish hospices in New York at this
time?

Seeking Sheff, Scheff, Brichta, Schlossberg #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

do any of these surnames resonate with you? Sheff, Scheff, Brichta, Schlossberg
Looking for where they intersect with my Sherman line.

My DNA Gedmatch ID is F316712, and my second cousin, Barry Robert Sherman, tested
with FamilyTreeDNA, his GedMatch ID is F335696, if that helps with the matching.

The Shermans are >from Boston, MA area circa 1920/1930, and the Schlossberg line
would have married in around that time, and would have visited the Shermans in
Boston around then as well.

As for the other surnames - trying to figure when/how they intersect with my
Sherman line.

Thanks!
