Re: Holocaust survivors in Bobruisk #belarus

JReese4981@...
 

Does anyone know how many Jews survived the holcaust in Bobruisk? And what
happened to them, if they did survive? I have to believe that some of
grandfather's family survived, there were many brothers and at least one
sister, and probably many children, but my grandfather lost touch with them
during the war, and then he died of a stroke in 1941. And I never thought to
ask my grandmother before she died in 1968 -- my interest in my roots came
later. My father and his brothers never seem to have asked either, I asked
them all before they died, but no one knew anything, and now there is no one
to ask. If any of the family survived, and have children still there, I
would of course love to make contact with them.

Dear Belarus Genners,

Two more new articles have been posted on the Belarus Newsletter web site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/konstantin_shapiro.htm
This is another in the series on famous Jews of Belarus by Vitaly Charny,
beautifully illustrated as always with commemorative postage stamps, and
post card views.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/jewish_farmers.htm
This is a reprint of an article by Leonid Smilovitsky originally published
in the Jewish Political Studies Review dealing with the short-lived
agricultural communities of the 1920s.

We thank the authors and are sure you will find these articles interesting
and informative.

Sincerely,

Lichter from Lachina #belarus

Joanne G. Jacobson <jjacobson@...>
 

My grandmother, Rose LICHTER, came >from Lachina. I have been unable to
determine where Lachina is today, if it exists. Any thoughts? (My
great grandfather was Peter (Pesach) LICHTER and great grandmother was
Matel LICHTER). Any information on the LICHTER family or Lachina would
be greatly appreciated.

Re: Landa/Lande Tombstone Translation VM 1880 #belarus

BeenCzechmated@...
 

I just wanted to thank everyone who so graciously offered their time and
efforts in translating my ancestor, Ephraim/Fraim's tombstone. I received so
many wonderful translations, the response was overwhelming and so kind.

For those who struggled with some of the misspellings, I thought I'd share a
composite of the translations for them.
Here lies buried
My beloved father
He was taken >from me in the of my youth
An important man of religion and teacher
Efraim Fishel
Son of Reb Meir Landa
Died 27 of Kislev in the year 5667 (1907)
May his soul be tied to the tie of life.

Thank you all so much.

Yizkor Book Project update October 2002 #lithuania

Joyce Field
 

This has been a short month as our QA Coordinator left on a
well-deserved vacation well before the end of the month. However, he
worked up to almost the last moment to get as much as possible
online. Thanks to Lance Ackerfeld we were able to produce a
prodigious amount of work during the first three weeks of October.
During that time we added 1 new book,7 new entries >from the Pinkas
HaKehillot, and updated 13 books. (Entries are chapters in books
which contain multiple towns, each of which has a separate listing on
our index page so they can be easily located.)

New Book:

-Oshmyany, Belarus

New Entries >from Pinkas HaKehillot:

-Poland
Glowno, Poland
Opatow, Poland
Opoczno, Poland
Przedborz, Poland

-Lithuania
Balbieriskis, Lithuania
Kalvarija, Lithuania
Mariampole, Lithuania

Updated Books:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Brzeziny, Poland
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dubossary, Moldova
-Gorodenka (Horodenka), Ukraine
-Novogrudok, Belarus
-Oradea, Romania
-Plock, Poland
-Przemsyl, Poland
-Slutsk, Belarus
-Szumsk, Ukraine
-Yedintsy, Moldova
-Zgierz, Poland

See http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html, the index page
for all the translations.

Before we had the Holocaust Database,
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/, there were a number of
files containing Holocaust and concentration camp data located
temporarily at the Yizkor Book site. As the Holocaust Database now
includes those files we have removed the static files >from the Yizkor
Book Page and have reorganized the translations into three
categories--Regions, Communities, and Miscellaneous.

Morris Gradel has signed up to do a large number of translations >from
the Pinkas HaKehillot, Poland, volume 7. Thank you, Morris for your
efforts. We hope other volunteers we step forward to coordinate
translations of the other volumes. Incidentally, all the Pinkasim
translations are indexed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_poland/pinkas_poland.html,
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Pinkas_lita/Pinkas_Lita.html,
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Pinkas_latvia/pinkas_latvia.html,
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_romania/pinkas_romania.html

If you find the Yizkor Book Project has been helpful and you wish it
to continue, please contribute to the fundraising projects listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.ihtml, where
you can easily also make a generous donation to JewishGen General
Fund. A plaque can be purchased at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/DedicationPlaque.html that
will appear on a yizkor book site. For example, see
