Warsaw Ghetto Lists #warsaw #poland

ikpjb@...
 

My Polish-Jewish relatives were trapped in the Warsaw Ghetto. They were
never heard of after they had smuggled a postcard out of the ghetto which
was received in the U.S..
Is there a list of those who were confined and possibly died there?
I have searched the recent online list of Polish citizens who died at
Aushwitz-Birkenau, but their names do not appear there.
Where else might I search?

Shalom,

I continue to be amazed and encouraged by the many of you who contact me
offering all types of assistance in the Yizkor Book Project - and believe
me, this is so very much appreciated! In addition, over the last month I was
contacted by a number of people interested in setting up a project for
particular Yizkor Books and I'm happy to note some have made great leaps in
placing the projects online, even over a the last few weeks.

Together with these, there have been four new Translation Fund Projects
recently initiated: Debica, Poland, Leova, Romania, Olkeniki, Lithuania and
Grajewo, Poland. These were begun in order to engage professional
translators who will help facilitate dreams of seeing the whole translation
of these books online.

Rudolf Lowit and Family #austria-czech

sweet_babe1966@...
 

I am looking for info on my 2nd Great-Grandfather Rudolf LOWIT (1832-1890) and his family. Rudolf was
married to Katharina PICK LOWIT (1839-?). They had the following children:

(1) Klementine Lowit KOBLITZ (1856-?)
(2) Albrecht LOEWIT (My great-grandfather) (1859-1928) Lived in NYC
(3) Anna Lowit GEIRINGER (1860-?)
(4) Gustav LOWIT (1862-?)
(5) Zdenka LOEWIT (1866-?)
(6) Albine LOWIT (1867-?)
(7) Olga LOWIT (1868-?)
(8) Josef Israel LOWIT (1870-1942-Died in concentration camp in Terezin)
(9) Rosa LOWIT (1872-?)
(10)Camilla LOWIT (1875-?)
(11) Franz LOWIT(1879- 1970s?)-Lived in New York

I would like to know if anyone has any info on Rudolf or his family in any of the following places:
Brumov/Braunau, Brno/Brunn, Prague/Prag----possibly in Textile or other businesses? I was told by my
great-aunt (Albrecht's daughter) that the Lowits were "weavers and chemists". I believe that Rudolf ran his
own factory possibly in Braunau. I would like to know the name and location of the factory or factories he
ran.

I would also like to find out what happened to Rudolf's other children. Albrecht came to Ameica in 1881.
His brother, Franz came to America in 1900. I have no evidence that any of the other siblings ever came
to America. I was told by my great-aunt that many of them died in the Holocaust. I have proof of only one
sibling, Josef dieing of an illness while in a concentration camp.

Location of Rudolf's and Katharina's graves would also be helpful. I will be going to Prague in three weeks.
I would love to see Rudolf's and Katharina's graves if they are located in a cemetery in Prague.

I have gotten much info >from Peter Rohel and his genealogy website. He has given me a link to a site
called: "Kramerius". I have also found Lowit info on the website for the Czech National Archives and the
website that shows Holocaust victims >from the Czech Republic (www.holocaust.cz). I have used the
website: Find-A-Grave for info and I have memorials on there for Albrecht and Josef.

If you have any info on this family or are related----then please contact me. Thank you.

(9) Rosa LOWIT (1872-?)
(10)Camilla LOWIT (1875-?)
(11) Franz LOWIT(1879- 1970s?)-Lived in New York

I would like to know if anyone has any info on Rudolf or his family in any of the following places:
Brumov/Braunau, Brno/Brunn, Prague/Prag----possibly in Textile or other businesses? I was told by my
great-aunt (Albrecht's daughter) that the Lowits were "weavers and chemists". I believe that Rudolf ran his
own factory possibly in Braunau. I would like to know the name and location of the factory or factories he
ran.

I would also like to find out what happened to Rudolf's other children. Albrecht came to Ameica in 1881.
His brother, Franz came to America in 1900. I have no evidence that any of the other siblings ever came
to America. I was told by my great-aunt that many of them died in the Holocaust. I have proof of only one
sibling, Josef dieing of an illness while in a concentration camp.

Location of Rudolf's and Katharina's graves would also be helpful. I will be going to Prague in three weeks.
I would love to see Rudolf's and Katharina's graves if they are located in a cemetery in Prague.

I have gotten much info >from Peter Rohel and his genealogy website. He has given me a link to a site
called: "Kramerius". I have also found Lowit info on the website for the Czech National Archives and the
website that shows Holocaust victims >from the Czech Republic (www.holocaust.cz). I have used the
website: Find-A-Grave for info and I have memorials on there for Albrecht and Josef.

If you have any info on this family or are related----then please contact me. Thank you.

Try contacting the Hebrew Theological Seminary at 7135 N. Carpenter
Road, Skokie, IL 60077, Phone: (847) 982-2500. Send them your email and
maybe they can help. The synagogue sounds like it might have been
Congregation Beth Jacob on Kimball Avenue Chicago which closed its
doors. The memorial tablets were transferred to the HTS so maybe other
records are in the archives at the HTS.

There were two towns of this name during the Austrian period. One
was in the subdistrict of Strusow, main district of Trembowla. The other
was in the subdistrict of Gologory, main district of Zloczow. Without
knowing more, I couldn't advise as to which one was correct.
Suzan,

There was only one town by name Zubow in district Trembowla in
Tarnopol Province.

You are confusing towns Zubow with Zukow (accented Polish letters
"z" and "o"), also in Tarnopol Province

On the other hand, there were two towns by name Zukow, one in
district Zloczow (landlord Count Jakob Potocki) and the other in
district Brzezany (Jewish landlord Salomon LUKACZER).
