Mysterious numbers tattoo on ggmother who came Odessa->US in 1907 #general

Yaakov Saxon
 

I wonder if anybody might be able to help solve a family mystery. My
father told me that when he was a kid, he noticed that his grandmother
Minnie Rubin had numbers tattooed on her arm, like a holocaust
survivor. The strange thing is that she was nowhere near Europe during
that time.

Minnie was the daughter of Max Teitelbaum (Mordechai Yosef, son of
Tzvi) and Sule Berzansky (Sulia, daughter of Menachem Mendel and Sarah).
Minnie was born in 1901 and came to the US (via port of Quebec, entering
the US in Vermont) with her mother Sule and brother Mendel in 1907 to
join her father Max, who had immigrated earlier (1904?), by an as-yet
undiscovered-by-me route. They came >from Odessa, Russia. The story I've
heard is that Max left to avoid the draft, but I haven't verified that
in any way.
In any case, Minnie lived the rest of her life in the US and was not in
Europe during the Holocaust.

Can anybody provide a clue? Has anybody heard of little girls in Russia
being stamped with numbers on their arm?

Secondarily, the Teitelbaum's (and Berzansky's) are among the last
remaining lines I haven't been able to trace back into Europe. Does
anybody have any relevant info or ideas?

I've heard of men changing their names to avoid the Russian draft. How
would one determine if such a thing had happened? And if so, how would
you trace them back to their real name?

Terezin documents: Margot HEYMANN and Kamil KLATSCHER #general

George Fogelson
 

My great aunt survived Theresienstadt and I have a poem to my aunt's
birthday written by Margot Heymann nee Kling knowing that she was
going to be transported to Auschwitz that day:
translation:
Even though I can not be with you I still want to share the joy. I
would have liked so much to be among you - not only because of the
cake of course.
Because Kaetchen has birthday, she is so good, so sweet, so kind,
always in good shape., that is why I can wish her all the best and
wish her that she does not have to live through pain ,I wish her all
the best for this and many more birthdays.

It is written as a poem and in a way you wrote birthday cards at the
time- as if life was totally normal. For example she talks of a
cake/Torte- something totally far away.

Among my aunt's letters is also a document concerning Kamil KLATSCHER

Viewmate translation request - Greek written in Latin letters #general

Rena
 

I would appreciate any assistance translating a 2-page document that I
am hoping will provide clues to the fate of my ancestor. I have been
told it appears to be written by someone who learned to speak Greek
phonetically but not to write it properly. Latin letters were used.
The pages are on Viewmate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74194

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74195

Some of the writing has faded over time and is not legible, but much
of the text is still clear. Even just learning the gist of the
message will be invaluable.

Thanks so much if you can offer any help.

Meir Weissberg and Norbert Aleksandrowicz #general

I have posted this in the past with some results, and now, hoping to
reach a new audience, post again.

Meier Weissberg (Vaysberg or Vaisberg), b 24 Oct 1856 in Bohorodczany,
died 17 Sep 1930 in Stanislawow. He was a noted Judaic scholar and
professor in a high school in Stanislawow.
Anna (nee Chane Sara Gold), died 14 Apr 1936. She was Meier's wife.
Their children were:
-Jozef Karol Weissberg (later changed his name to Bialogorski) born
1887. Lived in L'viv
-Frydryka Weissberg Aleksandrowicz born 1892 in Stanislawow. Her
children were Lidja, b1915; Irena, and Norbert (twins), b 1917, born in Vienna.
-Klara Weissberg Lachs, born in Stnaislawow 1893; lived in Krakow.
-Wilhelm Weissberg, born 1897 Stanislawow.

Norbert Aleksandrowicz was the only member of the family to survive
and lived out his life in Poland, after being re-settled there. He
never married and died of natural causes at age 90 in Klodzko, Poland.

I continue to search for information about this family. Meir
Weissberg is my great-great Uncle, on my father's mother's side. My
father's mother was a Weissberg.

Norbert Aleksandrowicz is my second cousin, once removed.
