Laber, Kripitzer & Kuterman from Litin #ukraine

grey_fish@...
 

Dear Genners,

When I started, as most of us do, I began with what I knew.

I was given information that my grand father had three sisters, Chansa, Dobrissa & Esther.

In truth, my great grandfather married Dobrissa begetting the Labers, Charms and Cohens nee Kutermans. They all settled in the New Haven area.

Chansa married Kripitzer and begat the Kripitzers and the Yaris nee Yeroszewskis.

Any help defining the family name of these sisters would be very helpful

Rom-Sig Enquiries #romania

gitty2@att.net
 

Hi I recently received the death record of my grgdfather >from Bacau
archives. It said he died in Moenesti, in 1872 at the age of 40 and
that he was a tailor. His family name was Rothenberg but he was known
as Croitoru. However which name I used the authorities were able to
locate his records. There was no other family info, a brick wall. Now
I would welcome suggestions on how I may proceed. In case you don't
know, Croitoru means tailor.

near, but if it does relate to my family, it might be somewhere in Grodno
Gubernya. The time period would be between the Wars as the man in

It appears to be Vladimir Volynskiy [Polish: Wlodzimierz Wolynski]
or Lodmir in Yiddish, known currently as
Volodymyr-Volynskyy at 5051 2420 in Ukraine.

The Memoirs of Peter Kleinmann of Kustanovice/Munkacs #ukraine

steve725@...
 

There has been a good addition to the Museum's ongoing and evolving
exhibition "Walk in my Shoes: Collected Memories of the Holocaust."

You can now read the complete memoirs of Holocaust survivor Peter (Dezider)
Kleinmann, who was born in 1925 in the small village of Kustanovice, about a
one hour walk >from the city of Mukacevo (aka Munkacs, Hungary; Mukacevo,
Czechoslovakia; Mukachevo, Soviet Union; today Mukacheve, Ukraine).

Peter writes about:

Jewish communal life in Munkacs
The rise of anti-Semitism during Hungarian occupation
The Munkacs ghetto
Deportation
Existence in the concentration camps Auschwitz, Gross-Rosen and Flossenburg
The Death March
Liberation

There are a good number of photos included, both of family, scenes around
towns, a sanitorium in Switzerland, and also of the camps.

You can begin to read his memoirs at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/wims-kleinmann-01.htm . More about Peter
Kleinmann, including video testimony, will be made available to you some
time this year once the Museum's "World War II and the Holocaust" section
has been augmented and made ready for viewing.

The submission of more such memoirs to the virtual Museum of Family History
are welcome.

Forgotten letters of Holocaust victims-Article published on March 31 #ukraine

dothan-t@...
 

Hello,

One addition to Shaul Sharoni's message of Apr.11: The letters were all
posted in Kamenetz Podolsk . During the war Jews >from the surrounding towns
in Podolia as well as >from Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary lived in the
ghetto there.

Tamar Dothan
Jerusalem
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The March 31 issue of Yediot Aharonot, one of Israel's major daily
newspapers, published an article on a collection of 1186 letters by
residents of the then USSR, soldiers and Soviet citizens, mainly in
present-day Ukraine. Most of the letters were written by Jews who later on
perished in the holocaust.

The letters were sent prior to the German occupation of those territories,
yet they were "intercepted" by a German postman, Dr.Olschlager, stationed in
Rowno; the aim was to document the Soviet state of mind at that time.
Olschlager had sent this collection to a man named Dr. Riedel, working at
one of the local museums in Vienna, where it was stashed away for 70 years.

In 2006 the existence of the collection was discovered by the Ukrainian
authorities, and after continuous negotiations the collection was returned,
and is now kept at the War Museum in Kiev. Attempts at tracking down family
members of the writers are currently underway. For further info click the
following link:
