Searching for David SPECKTOR from Radziwillow #poland

Judith Elam
 

I am trying to help an elderly survivor find her brother. His name is
David SPECKTOR. David was born about 1932 in Radziwillow, Poland, now
Radyvyliv, Ukraine, and he was the son of Yitzchok and Pesia SPECKTOR.

In 1942 a massacre took place in Radziwillow. At the time David and his
father Yitzchok were in a stable on the farm. Yitzchok was taken
outside and shot. Only one gunshot was heard, so it is possible David
escaped and is still alive.

David's mother Pesia and his youngest sister Lube were also shot that
day, but all David's other siblings ran away and hid. They survived and
eventually made it to the USA. They are Feige, Eta, Shmuel, Chayka,
Rose and Mosche. Several hundred people survived the massacre by hiding
in the woods. Some were hidden by non-Jews.

Chayka, now known as Clara Grossman, is desperate to find out what
happened to her brother and hopes he is still alive. I have not found
David on any victim list or any record for him anywhere. There is a Page
Of Testimony for David on Yad Vashem, submitted by his cousin Yosef, but
nobody knows for sure David
was killed, or that he is still alive.

Can anyone please suggest how to find David SPECKTOR?

Jewish cemetery in Leipzig, 1933 #germany

Judith Elam
 

My mother's little brother, Adolph Abraham MENDZIGURSKY, was born May 16,
1927 in Leipzig. He died of pneumonia June 21, 1933 at age 6. The
Juedische Gemeinde of Leipzig cannot find any burial information for him.
My mother tells me that the Jewish cemetery in Leipzig was closed for a
brief period in 1933. I don't know if this is correct or not. If this is
correct, what would they have done with the bodies? Would they have been
cremated? Would this be the reason for the absence of information on Adolph?

Re: Lottery Inspector #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

I assume Lottery inspector is equal to Lottery collector. This licensed
business, often carried out by Jews, consisted in selling tickets for
the national lottery, collecting and managing the funds, paying out the
winnings, a Government-run predecessor of what now is practiced in Las
Vegas and elsewhere.

My knowledge originates in publishing a French translation with history
and genealogy comments of the "Erzaehlung der Kriegsabenteuer und
Schicksale des ehemaligen Artillerie-Wachtmeisters Jakob Meyer von Dransfeld
waehrend der Feldzuege in Spanien und Russland" (Story of the war adventures
and fate of the former artillery sergeant Jakob Meyer >from Dransfeld
during the campaigns in Spain and Russia ; French title "Jakob Meyer,
soldat de Napoleon).
This Westphalian veteran volunteer of Napoleon's army and many related Jews
became Lotterie Collectors.

I would guess that the name Yeva is a Russian name that corresponds to the
name Eva. There are two different letter E's in Russian, and one is
pronounced "Yeh." Thus the Russian name Elena is pronounced Yelena.
