Ancestors from Otwock and Karczew #poland

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

Does anyone have ancestors >from Otwock and Karczew (towns southeast
of Warsaw) named DROSZDIASZ, SUPERSTEYN/SZAFIRSTEYN, or GRYNBERG/
GRUNBERG? I hope I'm not the only person researching these families!
(In case you're wondering I have had them listed in Family Finder
for many years but so far have had no definitive responses.)

My maternal grandfather, Israel DROSDIASZ, left Poland circa 1900
with his wife Sura Rojza nee SAFIRSTEYN (the spelling of her maiden
name varies depending on the source) and two young daughters. After
settling in the north of England in the early 1900s he adopted the
"more English"-sounding surname of ROSE.

Surviving Torah Scrolls from Across Galicia #poland

Does anyone know of a database or list of Torah scrolls that survived
from the towns and shtetls across Galicia?
In particular, does anyone know if there are any surviving scrolls
from Horodenka, Poland, now in western Ukraine.

List I don't know,and I haven't noted anything concerning torah scrolls
in the Yizkor Book of Horodenka when I studied it. But I did in that of
Buczacz.

"On April 13, at 2:00 a.m., the cart of the Jewish cartman Meir
Budzanower, reached the house of the Torah script, Jona Kwalenberg. On
this cart, Shmuel Rosenthal and Gedalja Duchowni loaded 45 Torah scrolls
and eight sacks of Talitot and Tefilins. The strange funeral moved
through the streets of Buczacz [...] to the Greek-Catholic Monsatery of
the Bazilian brothers. [...] The gates of the Monastery barely opened
that shootings were heard in town. The frightened brothers received the
Holy charge and asked the Jews to flee so as not to endanger them. [in
1943] At the Same time [liquidation of Buczacz labour camp], when the
inevitable bitter end approached, the Torah script Kwalenberg and the
witness took the 20 Torah scrolls they have hid and gave them to the
Roman-Catholic priest, to hide. [After the liberation of Buczacz] I have
received all the Torah Scrolls back. Some of them I brought to
Tschenorivts and gave to the synagogue and some I brought to Wroclaw. "

Buczacz; in Memory of a Martyred Community), Published by the
Lnadsmenschaft of Buczacz un Israel, Ofek Printing Houses, Israel ,
1956, p. 263-264.).


In Bursztyn (Rohatyn, Stabnislawow), "Pinchas Haber, the son-in-law of
Avrumtsie >from Bohorodczany, brought a Sefer Torah with him when he
settled in Bursztyn and put it into the Stratyner kloiz where he prayed.
When the murderers began to kill, Pinchas hid the Sefer Torah but no one
knew where . When Bursztyn was liberated by the Russians in 1944, the
Jews who had been in hiding returned to their town to weep over its
destruction. One day, an old Ukrainian woman came to Yaakov Feldman and
said to him that she had a secret that concerned him. At the end of 1941
Pinchas Haber and Mordechai Bernstein gave her a Sefer Torah to hide.
They knew this old lady, whom they called 'Stepanke,' , who was a
Sabbotnik. She took the Sefer Torah >from them and set up a special
'bunker' where she placed it in hay to protect it against dampness.
The old lady gave Feldman a hat to cover his head and he went with her.
The Sefer Torah was still in its hiding place, as she had said, and she
handed it to Yaakov Feldman, the husband of Dazi, the daughter of the
above named Pinchas Haber. After years of wandering, Dazi and Yankel
Feldman came to Israel in 1948 and brought with them the Sefer Torah
that was rescued." (Klarnet Yehoshua Pinchas 'Bursztyn', in Amitay

(The Rohatyn Jewish Community - A Town that Perished), published by the
Landsmannschaft of Rohatyn in Israel, Orly Printing house, Tel Aviv,
1962, p. 335.).


In the town of Uhnow (Rawa Ruska, Lwow),in the early days of German
Occupation, June-August 1941, The Germans made the local Jews destroy
the bimah of the synagogue, take out the Torah scrolls to a muddy
field, chop some woods then set the scrolls on fire. "They say that
several Ukrainian women grabbed some of the Torah Scrolls and saved
them, right under the nose of the Germans. They say that 'if you start
up with the God of the Jews, the end won't be good' ".The witness
does not say what happened to the scrolls afterwards. (Rzeczlinski nee
Judenberg Serril (Sonia), 'Rzeczlinski Serril (Sonia) relates' in,

(Memorial Book of Uhnow and vicinity), , published by the
Landsmannschaft of Uhnow and vicinity in Israel, Tel Aviv, 1981, p. 23
of the English part ).

Yad Vashem museum might have a list of scrolls, but I'm not sure

hope this helps (and apologies for the typos, etc).

Rachel & Abraham KUTNER of Warsaw/Lynn, Mass and Selma KRANTZ #general

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

Thank you so much for all the very helpful replies on my query about Beile Woland
of Wohyn's manifest. I'm overwhelmed with both the good will and amazing research
offered by so many of you.

I have now nailed down that Beile's brother-in-law was Abraham Kutner, who was born
in Warsaw in 1883 and was working in Lynn at a shoe factory and living at 180
Summer Street. He immigrated in 1909 via Canada. (He may have had a brother named
Kohnen Kutner? Father Solomon?)

Beile Woland was single in 1911, so her brother-in-law would have to be her
sister's husband, correct? Was brother-in-law sometimes not used literally? The
only piece of the puzzle that still doesn't make sense to me is that Abraham's
wife's name was Rachel, but that does not match the name of Beile's sister in
America, who was named Henia. I can assume that Henia changed her name to Rachel in
America, but am looking for confirmation/documentation. Absent that information, I
can't figure out how or if she is related to us. Rachel was still alive in the 30s,
divorced >from Abraham and living with her daughter Zelma in Maine. The family story
was that Henia died of cholera in America. I have not yet found birth or
immigration information on Henia Woland or Rachel Kutner, whether they are two
different people or the same. If anyone has any information on them, please let me
know.

Also, Abraham and Rachel Kutner, according to the 1920 census, were living in
Revere Mass with Rachel's widowed sister, "Bessie Krantz" and her young daughter
Selma, who was born in about 1918 or 1919 in Rhode Island. (The census page is
quite faded, and those names are how they are listed on ancestry.com; it looks like
it could be Kravitz). I suspect that Bessie could be my Beile Woland of Wohyn, but
if those names are familiar to anyone, please let me know.

Also, if anyone has any idea what the next steps might be, I'd be appreciative. How
do I find RI birth certificates without knowing what city they were born in? How
might I find Beile/Bessie's marriage certificate >from Massachusetts, circa 1915?

Thank you so much.

Re: ORLOVSKY Fashion & Ortho Shoe #general

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much to all who have responded to my question about "ORLOVSKY Fashion
& Ortho Shoe". I am sorry I forgot to mention that this was a fairly recent
business ownership, dating to the mid-late 1990's.

I am excited to say that through "Unclaimed Funds", "Property Shark", and "BBB", I
was able to get the address of the business, and even a picture of the store-front
after it was purchased by another owner. I was also able to find the daughter of
the man who purchased "ORLOVSKY Fashion& Ortho Shoe", and re-named it
"GLORIA Wide Shoes", in the late 1990's. Hopefully she will have some information
for me on the name of the original owner, since her father passed away.

Again, thank you all for your help, as always!
