I have translated and own the copyright of Yizkor Book of Ivenets, Kamin and
Surroundings, now called These We Remember. It includes all photos, memorial
pages and necrology. For any genners who are involved in teaching Holocaust
studies it is an excellent source of primary source memoirs. It is
available for purchase from:

Shoah Literature Press

Box 133

Emerson NJ 07630

You can send a check to the above address for $45.00 plus $8 for shipping
and handling.

Chag sameach,

This is my grandmothers, mother, her father and herself with her sister. I had the hebrew translated. I recognize these photos because my grandmother has these exact photos at her home. Her name is Luba Rolnick (Liba Gordon). The pictures are of the Gordon's and I was wondering how they relate to Rolnik other than Luba married my grandfather Avraham Rolnik. 

There is a photo of Avraham Rolnik #Rol-1. I don't know if this is my grandfather, as I've never seen a younger picture of him. He was born in 1905 and died in Toronto, ON in 1986. (When I was 7. I am 34 now.) I miss my grandfather SO much and any info you can provide would be so very much appreciated.

Thank you SOOOOO much for making this site! You've made me so happy.

Please write me back at natalierubin@hotmail.com

Sincerely,
Natalie.
Dear Natalie,

The pictures are from the shtetl Ivenetz http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/ivenetz/ivenetz.html From the Yizkor book. It is near Minsk and today it is part of Belarus. The Rolnik family in Ivenetz was a large family. Please write about your grandparents. When did they go to Canada? When did Rabbi Zeev Gordon come there?
Thanks,
Eilat

Hi Eilat,

I was looking over your very informative site. My grandfather z"l came from Ivenetz and the wealth of information you have is amazing.
I maintain the facebook pages and website of Yad Yisroel, a non-profit organization in Pinsk. May I use pictures from your website for my facebook pages and website?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks,
Debbie Paneth

Hello,

Was deeply moved by your photos of Ivenets:  http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/ivenetz/ivenetz.html

Would you happen to know if any of the photos included anyone with the surnames of: Gurian or Shimonowitz?  (My GG Grandparents.)
 
Thank you so much!

Abby Bergman

I am planning a trip to Ivenitz and would like whatever advice/assistance you can provide.

Thank you. Deborah
