Trebisov, Slovakia #slovakia

Ozzy Bernstein

Hi all,

I recently uncovered a letter addressed to my great grandmother regarding a property in Trebisov, Slovakia that her parents lived in before being deported to Auschwitz. It is from someone in the Czechoslovakian government and was written in 1991 from Prague.

The street name that the property is on was then called Kapushan Street and was a school in the 90s. I can't find any Kapushan St. in Google Maps. Does anyone know what Kapushan St. is called today or know of that property? If not, which branch of the Slovakian government am I to contact for more information on the property such as archived documents and photos?

Thank you,

Ozzy Bernstein

Hello Ozzy (Wherever you are)

Perhaps I can help.
There was a Slovak program with money set aside to compensate (heirs) for property owned by Holocaust victims located in Slovakia.
This program compensated our family for its loss in Turcianske Rudno in about 2004. It would have the street name you are seeking.

I advise you to make the following contact.  Hopefully they still exist/operate
Council for the Compensation of Holocaust Victims
