I am researching a branch of the LURJE family. Fivel Labe LURJE was
born in 1896 in Raseiniai, Lithuania. He lived in Harbin, China,
where he married Sonia CAGAN, who was born in Babryusk in today's
Belarus, in Harbin. They may have died in the Shoah in 1941 in
They had four children. The family genealogist had located Ruvinas
(Ruben) LURJE, who was born in 1919 in Harbin. He and his family
immigrated to the United States in 1987 and lived in Florida. There
was also a sister, Braina (Dora) LURJE, born in 1927 in Raseiniai.
She married Leibl POZNER and had one child, Sonia, born in 1959.
Sonia married a man named MERLIN and had two children, Rina, born in
1983, and David, born in 1987. Braina may have lived in Kazakhstan in
the former Soviet Union. There were also two brothers, Baruch, born in
1926, and Haim Ber, born in 1929, who may have died in the Shoah in
1941 in Raseiniai. Braina may have died in 1986 in Kaunas, Lithuania.
I would like to learn more about this family and if there are any
survivors. Thank you for your help.
