Re: Where is "Megibogi? #general

Dollars to donuts this is a poor transliteration of Medzibezh, the
Ukrainian town in the area that the Baal Shem Tov and his followers lived.

The family is >from Khotin, Ukraine, but stayed in England for
a few months before coming to the US. On this passenger manifest, it
states that the last permanent residence and place of birth for Leiser
Berenberg is "Megibogi." It does state that he is Russian. Does anyone
have any idea what where "Megibogi" is or what name it could refer
too?

Re: massacre of Jewish professionals in Czestochowa #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I recently came across citations about the death of Jewish physicians
during a massacre of Jewish professionals in the Czestochowa cemetery
on March 20, 1943. Does anyone have information about this event or
can direct me to where information about this even can be obtained?
Does anyone know who was killed and who were the perpetrators?

Thank you for your response.

In response to the message above:

Another JewishGenner has indicated to me that this massacre in Czestochowa
is described in Harry Klein's book "Czenstochov: Our Legacy" (Montreal,
1993; available at more than 30 USA libraries).

I have a copy of a list of these murders. The list is entitled
"Alphabetical listing of 127 Jews, all professionals, shot in Czestochowa."
Here is the document (with, in fact, 46 persons listed):

http://www4.wittenberg.edu/academics/music/kazez/0809.Cze-Shot2-Type.jpg

The Polish in this document can be translated in several different ways.
Essentially, it says:

Persons who were shot:
Believing that they were going abroad [i.e., leaving the country],
they took their families with them [to the site of the massacre].
There were 127 persons shot: men, women and children.
It [i.e., the date of the massacre] was the seventh birthday of
Lili, daughter of doctor Eliasz Wiener, the most beautiful
child in ghetto.

Here, in red, is (thanks to typist Madeleine Okladek) a typed version (not
yet proofed) of this document:

Many of the listed persons are lawyers and doctors.

Dear Friends,

Looking for family of Nuta (or Nota) RUBINSTEIN. This person lived in
Kiryat Gat back in 1957 and her address was just "Kiryat Gat 204/5" -
probably the building number.

I will appreciate any information that helped to get to her or her family.
She was the submitter of Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony for some members of
my Slizak family in Lukow and Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland.

Re: Winnipeg, Manitoba, history #general

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

Hi Genners,
I recently asked if anyone knew of a web address where I could find stories
of Jewish families and why they had come to Winnipeg. A number of genners
wrote to me, not with the information, but rather asking me to share if
someone sent the address to me. Here goes.
The address is www.jewishfoundation.org.
This is a website for the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, and has a section
called Book of Life, that contains personal stories and photos.

Two thoughts come to me.
First, cast a wide-enough net for your search. I had been looking for
'Winnipeg' and the answer was under 'Manitoba'.
Second thought is that our Jewish Gen Digest readers do not disappoint. I
have always had wonderful responses, and especially having to do with our
Canadian friends. Thank you.
