Thanks to the people who have contacted me since my last posting in February
asking for help with information regarding Jews who might have lived in Calcutta,
India, before and during the war. I would now like to locate copies of the lists
of people who registered with the U.S. embassies in Moscow (when it opened in
1933/34) and in Warsaw, where many of the people working in the U.S.S.R. went to
renew their passports/visas.
I managed to track down a journalist who lived in Moscow and he had partial lists
of U.S. citizens who had registered with the U.S. embassy beginning in 1935. I
am trying to find out something about U.S. citizens who were already working in
the U.S.S.R. before that date and who would have come out, most probably from
what I understand, to Warsaw to make contact with the U.S. embassy for any
consular paperwork. As many of the American engineers, journalists, etc. who
were living in Moscow at the time were Jewish, I was wondering if anyone at this
site has had occasion to track down information on a family member through these
lists. I do know they exist - it's finding them that is the problem.
Thank you for your help.
