HERSHOVITZ-LURJE Family #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I would like to find information on the family of Borach LURJE and Rachel
(Roskie) HERSHOVITZ. They lived in Raseiniai, Lithuania, and died in the
Shoah along with most of their family.

Borach was married previously and had two sons, Fivel Labe (Pielwa) and
Michael. He had six children with Rachel: Chana DISKANT, Yehoshua
(Heishel), Moshe (Meishel), Sarah YUDELEVSKI, Rivka DAGAN (later LASSAR),
and Gutel (Grisha). All but Sarah, Rivka, and Grisha died in the Shoah,
most of them in 1941 in Raseiniai. Heishel supposedly died "at the front"
in 1943.

The main things I would like to find out are:

(1) Fivel Labe was married to Sonia Cagan of Babryusk in present-day Belarus.
They were married in Harbin, China. They had two children who survived the war.
Ruvinas (Ruben) was born in 1919 in Harbin and immigrated to the United States
with his wife Liza and son Fayva. Braina (Dora) married Leibl POZNER and had a
daughter Sonia, who married a man named MERLIN and had two children, Rina and
David.

(2) Heishel was married to Yentl FISHLEDER of Kedainai, Lithuania. They had a
daughter, Bella, born in 1934 in Raseiniai. Yentl and Bella survived the war.
Later Bella married a man named ZELISOVITZ and had two children.

(3) Moshe was married to Lili MARKS. She supposedly died near the end of the
war in Siauliai, Lithuania.

(4) Rivka was first married to Moshe DAGAN (formerly VOLPE) and had two
daughters, Shifra and Yael. Shifra was born in 1938 and Yael in 1942 in Bat
Yam in pre-state Palestine. Shifra had attended our first family reunion.
I would like to get in touch with her. She used to live in Ashdod, but I
think she lives in Gan Yavne now. She married Israel SAAR and had three
children. Her sister Yael married Ze'ev RAVID and had two children. Later
Rivka married Moshe LASSAR (formerly HARAK).

(5) Grisha married Mina SCHWARTZ of Raseiniai. They had two sons, Baruch,
born in 1944, and Peter (Pettie). They moved to Krefeld, Germany, where
Baruch married a woman named Klara and had two sons, Aron and Georg, and
Pettie married a woman named Rivka and had one daughter, Elina (Lina).

If anyone has any information, I would appreciate it.

Changing of Last Names On Way to England from Russia #general

David Goldman
 

Hi, Jewishgenners.

A third cousin I was corresponding with has made a very interesting suggestion
as to why my great-grandfather (her great-great-grandfather) and his brothers
changed their last names >from Krasinsky in 1890 when they left Nova Ushitza for
Manchester. She said she knew of one of her other relatives who did the same
thing because he was seeking employment or perhaps had been sponsored for
employment >from a German-Jewish factory employer in Manchester, and the relative
understood that a "German-Jewish" sounding last name would work better than a
Russian sounding one in terms of obtaining employment by German Jewish factory
owners.

I had wondered how and why three brothers could emigrate legally >from the
Russian Empire under totally assumed names if they needed visas and passports.
I didn't find this particular novelty among any of my other ancestors, so the
suggestion about employment seems to make eminent sense.

Bialystoker Synagogue Memorial Plaques in NYC #poland

David Slater
 

Upon arriving in the U.S. >from Bialystok in 1904, my family settled on NYC's
Lower East Side near the Bialystoker Synagogue. They were congregants there
for many decades. The Synagogue located on at 7-11 Bialystoker Place
[formerly Willett Street] is still active to this day.

If anyone lives or works in the vicinity of the Bialystoker
Synagogue and would be kind enough to take a few digitized photos of the
plaques, I'd be extraordinarily grateful. If you would contact me privately,
I'll forward the names and dates of death.

My Opus is on USHMM #france

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow family historians,

I have been working on an extensive family history, which is now available
as a PDF on the website of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).
Its current length is 627.9 MB, so it takes a while to download. It took
me 1 minute and 14 seconds to download to my computer. If you are interested
in reading it, here is the URL

http://digitalarchives.assets.ushmm.org/pdf/bib261529_001_001.pdf

or

https://tinyurl.com/TFWOpus

The Table of Contents shows those chapters that are in various states of
incompletion and not yet available (NA) on the web site.

Briefly, the material covered are: my parent=92s origins in Prague and Vienna,
our escape >from Europe after 20 months as refugees primarily in France, my
assimilation and education in America, my research in the last couple of
decades that has reconnected me to my family roots, and my discovery of the
tragic losses of family in the Holocaust.

I welcome any comments, critiques, errata, etc.

Cheers,

Request for help finding information on Michael ABRAHAM, nephew of Hedwig and Alfred JULIUSBURGER (Holocaust victims). #germany

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Dear All,
Whilst searching for information on the JULIUSBURGER family, last
known residence, Holzmarkt Strasse 65, Berlin, I came across what
appears to be a photo of them on "The List of Deportation >from Berlin"
database section of the YAD VASHEM website,(search request;
JULIUSBURGER Hedwig: photo name; p39855). I asked the correspondant
there for more information and she told me that the photo had been
posted in 2006 by a man called Michael ABRAHAM. The correspondant
indicated to me that Mr ABRAHAM is, or perhaps was, the nephew of
Hedwig JULIUSBURGER, who was born Hedwig ABRAHAM, in Allenstein,
Eastern Prussia (now Olstyn, Poland) on 3 Steptember 1897. Hedwig's
husband, Alfred JULIUSBURGER, born in Breslau, (Now Wroclaw, Poland)
on 13 November 1892 was the son of Isidor and Martha JULIUSBURGER.
This means that I have a link to these people via other, living,
members of my family.
I have no other information on Michael ABRAHAM, unfortunately. As
ever, I would be extremely grateful for help in getting into contact
with Mr ABRAHAM, or his descendants.

Best regards, Alexander Watson, Genas, Near Lyon France

Re: ZOREK, Erna from Breslau #germany

Corinna Woehrl
 

Hello Mike,

there are at least two databases, which are easily accessible and
searchable which both give answers to the fate of the family ZOREK from
Breslau. I'm afraid the family has perished in the Shoah.

1. the online-memory-book for victims of the Persecution of Jews under
the National Socialist Tyranny in Germany (Federal Archives of Germany)
(also with an English website)
http://www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/directory.html.de

2. and the database of Yad Vashem.
