Ukrainian Center of Genealogical Research? #ukraine

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
The Archives of the Ukraine website recommends that people desiring
genealogical research there use the "Ukrainian Center of Genealogical
Research".

Since I have been totally unsuccessful in finding someone living in
Dnepropetrovsk to do research there, I am considering working with this
company. I emailed them with two specific requests (a marriage and a death
certificate), and received in response a request for $80US to START the
search. They provided no other price specifics in the email, and I am
reluctant to spend hundreds of dollars for two records.

If anyone has had experiences with them, or has used them, I would very
much like to know about your experience. Please reply privately.

If you have other suggestions for research in Dnepropetrovsk, let me know
that too. (I don't want researchers >from Kiev who'd have to travel.)
Again, please reply privately.

Regards,
Hilary Henkin

Nahum. They lived in Barashi near Narodichi before WW.
They had many relatives in Narodichi and Korosten. The photos were made

Ulica Lupova street #poland

Paul Azaroff <pazaroff2000@...>
 

My mother's maiden name was Kruglak. Her first name was Fradel. She
lived with her sisters, Perel and Sonya on (39?) Lupova street. There
is a building with this address on Lupova street but it was built after
WW II. I'm sorry to say that I only listened with half an ear to the
wonderful tales my mother and her sisters would tell of life in Bialystok.
So I'm on a hunt for more details. Perhaps one of the members of
Jewish Gen/Bialystok can fill in some gaps.

The following are bits and pieces of talk that I heard as a child none
of which I can prove but the memory of these talks remains vividly fixed
in my mind. I heard them again and again.

My grandfather Meyer Kruglak came >from Sokolka. My grandparents were
married there and then moved to Bialystok. I believe my grandmother
(nee Dvaireh Glickman) was originally >from Bialystok.

As a child l heard the following stories. Mind you my family was not
given to hyperbole or to exaggerations so I believe a kernel of truth
exists in the following facts:

Our family is descended >from the Vilna Gaon. My aunt Pearl told me this
over sixty years ago. She said that as a child she was taken to Vilna
to the Gaon's graveside/ She was then told that she was a fifth great
granddaughter of the Vilna Gaon (as they said it Vilneh Goyn). I have
tried to trace the family tree back to him but cannot make a definite
connection.

My grandfather was a friend of Professor Zamenhof of Esperanto fame.
I know that my grandfather (whom I never met and who died during WW II)
was something of a Maskil and spoke several languages and was interested
in linguistics. Whether he knew professor Zamenhof personally is
unprovable.

Trotsky's daughter found refuge during W.W. I in my grandparent's home
for several days and if I recall correctly that Trotsky himself came
to their home at sometime for a short visit. Two of my uncles were
active in the Bund and might have had some contact with Trotsky.

My uncles Avrom and Chaim were among those killed on the infamous
Shabbes in June when the men of Bialystok were burned alive in the
Great Synagogue and their widows were known afterwards as the
Shabbesdikes. They had children but I only know the name of one of
my first cousins and his name was Berel Kruglak. This I learned
from cousins in Israel who escaped to the forests and who became
Partisans and later moved to Israel. One of them lived in Kiryat
Bialystok which I visited just after it was built in 1951/2.
I recall Sylvia Sydney coming there to visit while I was visiting
my cousins.

That my great grandmother made it a life long act of Tzedakah to
raise money for one stained glass window in the new Synagogue at
the turn of the 19/20th centuries. I did see the memorial sign to
the Great Synagogue that is on the front of the building that stands
where the old synagogue stood.

My mom said that on Shabbes she and her friends would walk around the
great clock tower (its still there). The girls would walk in one
directon (holding hands) and the boys in the other direction and they
would flirt in this manner with one another. She also said that when
there was a fire in town the bells in the tower would ring and that
she would leap >from her bed to go and see the fire. She always loved
fires and even in New York she would run to see a fire being put out.
The clock tower/fire tower was indeed just around the block >from her
address on Lupova street and well within the sound of the fire bells.

Does anyone know of these stories or have similar family stories?
There are many more such stories and bits of trivia that I recall.
I would love to have some verification about any of the above facts to
include in a m/s that I'm putting together for my own eyniklach.

Dear One and All:

I am looking for a YACOVBOSKI family that was once >from Bialystok.
All I know is that in the 1950s they lived in Israel in SHIKUN Bialystok
(I am told today is it Yehud.). I tried going through the Israeli
telephone book and calling up different Yacoboski families but I didn't
find the right one.

Can YOU help me??

As far as I can tell >from the Jewish Historical Society website
(http://www.jewishinstitute.org.pl/) and the three volumes of the

testimonies. This is confirmed by Tilford Bartman's posting earlier

directly. The email address provided for the Archives is

As he passed away over 30 years ago I would love to obtain a copy of
his

Re: Holocaust Testimonies from Jewish Historical Institute #poland

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

I learned about the existance of the 7300 testimonies at the Jewish
Historical Institute about five years ago >from reading about the life
and work of Shimon Datner.

Datner was a very well liked teacher at the Bialystok Hebrew Gymnasium
before the war. During the war he escaped >from the Bialystok Ghetto and
was able to join a partisan group that was operating in the forests near
Suprasl. I believe this was a Soviet partisan group. Datner's wife and
daughter >from his first marriage were murdered in the holocaust. I think
his daughter gave the signal for the Bialystok uprising to begin.

After the war Datner quickly organized to get writen testimony >from the
Holocaust survivors, and I believe established the Jewish Historical
Commission. He became Director of the Jewish Historical Institute. I
think he had a controversial tenure. I think he was sacked by the Polish
government several times. Once I believe because he would not make
statements critical of international Jewish organizations and Israel.

I think to keep his position and do his work he also had to make
compromises. He wrote a book in Polish about the Bialystok Ghetto. I
think it was in 1949. I have much of it translated to English. My
translator (a Holocaust survivor) refused to continue because she felt
it was so biased toward the communist cause and role in the uprising.
She felt that he had to write it this way in order to have it published
in Poland. I told her I could publish it on my website with full
explanation of the historical context, but she really didn't want to
have any part of it.

In 2001 on a visit to Poland I went to the Jewish Historical Institute
accompanied by a well connected Polish guide/translator. We went to
their archive where the testimonies are located. I gave them a list of
names of survivors who I thought might (of course I did not know) have
testimonies in the file. For a relatively small fee (I don't remember
now how much it was) they searched the file for the names I gave them,
and eventually made copies of any of the testimonies that they found,
which were then snail mailed to me by my guide/translator. The
testimonies are in Yiddish or Polish. After I received them I was able
to find translators on the internet. Some did translation for me on a
volunteer basis, and some I paid as much as $250-300 a testimony. The
testimonies I paid to have translated were generally better done. There
must be a way to get copies of these testimonies without having to go to
Poland but frankly I don't know how.

It's important to realize that these testimonies were taken by untrained
interviewers who had no forensic background. They were given between
1945-1948, so they were relatively fresh. Many of the survivors were
just telling what they could emotionally manage to get out, and you
could tell that the written testimony was very incomplete and just the
tip of a very large iceberg. Therefore often what you are left with is a
thousand questions about very incomplete and sometimes confusing
testimony, and absolutely no one left to ask. Unfortunately this has
left some of these testimonies open to question by people who have their
own motives and axes to grind. In some instances these testimonies deal
with some very sensitive and controversial information. At one point I
was told by someone who is generally credible that years ago there may
have been pressure in Poland to tamper with some of these testimonies.
This is all extremely unfortunate, but the fact is that these
testimonies are in many instances the best or the only information that
we have about significant events.

Regardless of the limitations, Datner and the others who organized to
take these testimonies are giants. Had they not done this we'd have
nothing or so much less about very important events. I'll also point out
that some of these people like Datner lived difficult lives in Poland.
Here in America and elsewhere survivors had their problems but they were
in a relatively safe, open , free environment. Most had the opportunity
to achieve material success and a degree of affluence. Many saw their
children and grandchildren growing up with a charmed existence. It was
not necessarily like this in Poland. We all owe big time people like
Datner and others who were in Poland!

I'll also add that while I was in Warsaw I had a very emotional meeting
with Datner's daughter >from his second marriage after the war. I wanted
to personally express my thanks to her for the work that her father
did. She was quite emotional and incredulous that some of the
testimonies that her father took are now being questioned by those with
questionable motives.

Szacher before leaving Poland) was spelled Itta on the passenger ship
