Soviet Holocaust Records #latvia

Marion Werle <werle@...>
 

I went to the link and looked up Riebini, and what I found were two lists
written in Yiddish. These are not the same as the Extraordinary Commission
lists I got >from the USHMM, which were in Russian. The Yad Vashem lists
appear to be more accurate, at least as far as my family is concerned.
There are three errors in the Russian list concerning my family. My guess
is that the Yiddish list must have been prepared by survivors (people who
fled and somehow survived, since the town was officially "Judenrein"), or
maybe people who had left before World War II broke out (like my grandfather
and his brother, who were in Canada and the US, respectively). The lists on
the Yad Vashem website look similar to the one >from the archives in
Shefayim. My understanding about the Extraordinary Commission records is
that the Soviets went back to the towns after they were recaptured >from the
Nazis, and interviewed the people who still lived there (which, in the case
of Riebini, had to be their non-Jewish neighbors), and made lists based on
their recollections.

I looked up a couple of other towns I am researching in Lithuania, and did
find two Russian records. One was handwritten, and the other typed--I can
sound out some names, but that is the extent of my Russian. So it seems
that coverage of the records varies >from town to town.

You can search the Yad Vashem website for the records of the

Crimes Committed on Soviet Territory" directly through the

I was wondering if anybody could help me read line 29 on this manifest.

I can actually read everything except the prefixes in front of "Mr.
Paper" listed for the name of the person he is going to join in
Chicago. This is the cell I am interested in.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
