1915: List of Jewish army deserters from Slonim uezd
Posted on October 25, 2015 by jhrgbelarus
In 1914, at the beginning of World War I, there were some 400,000 Jewish soldiers and officers in the Russian Empire’s army.
By 1916, their numbers had increased to 500,000, about 9% of all the soldiers in the army.
During WW1, nearly 100,000 Jewish soldiers were killed, and some 2,500 soldiers received the highest honor, “Cross of Georgiy.”

Slonim
1915 Russian-Jewish army draft
On the other hand, there were Jews who deserted the army. In early 1915 in Grodno guberniya, most deserters were from Slonim uezd.
A group of 44 draftees, aged 20-22, jumped off the train on their way to the front. All were declared wanted men.
Here is the list of deserters from Slonim uezd who escaped in 1915. Each file has a detailed description of the person; some files even include photos. The records do not provide information as to whether the individual was captured or not.

My mother was born in Slonim. I was looking at some of the school photos hoping to identify her in some of the photos but it is impossible to do so using the photos in the website.

Is there a way of getting access to a better copy that enables enlargement or zoom to identify individuals?

Thanks

Dear Luta Goldman,

Sorry for making you so unhappy with the site!
Did you click on the pictures to make them larger? you could also find some of the pictures in the Yizkor book for Slonim.

Hi

I work for the BBC in England and I came across your wonderful Slonim site.

I'm looking for help to find information about a family from Slonim dating back to the 1940s at the time of the Nazi invasion.

If you could help or point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Hello,
I'm looking for any history or records of my descendant Israel Isaac Slonemsky, 1868 - 1922.
He may have come from Slonim.
Thank you.

Dear Sandra,

I would love to have pictures of your family from Slonim. Was Ryzycow the maiden or married name of your grandmother? Send the captions maybe it would have the first name of your grandmother's sister. Do you have any relatives in Israel? ( if you do they might have given reports to Yad Vashem which are noa all online.
Thanks,     Eilat

I am trying to find information about the sister of my "bobe" who perished in the Holocaust. They lived in Slonim up to 1938 (when my bobe came to Argentina with her mother). She always told us that she had a sister who perished in second WW. Her sister, whose name I don't know, was married and had a child. This is the only thing I know. 
The full name  of my bobe was "Chana Ryzycow" and her mother was Raquel (Rachel or Rajel).
I have some picture to send if you want, they are from Summer camp there in Poland, I cannot understand the Yiddish description.

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

My great uncle AZIK DEUTSCH (b.1890, d.1942) and entire family from SLONIM were victims of the Nazi Liquidation there in 1942. I found Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem on the family submitted in Israel in 1956. I am trying to locate descendants of the POT Submitter, BILHAH KUZNETZ/KOZNITZ listed as a a neighbor  & a cousin , either of the Deutsch family or their married daughter BASHKA BUKOVITZKI/BUKOWICKI. I am trying to locate descendants in Israel of the KUZNETZ/KOZNITZ family based on the 1956 address suplied by Yad Vashem: Noakh 15, Kiriat Haim, which I believe is a suburb north of Haifa.

Any ideas how to proceed? I do not speak Hebrew or read it well.

I was perusing your wonderful. Slonim site, and have a question that
maybe you can help me with two question.

My family stems from Byten Slonim.  On a passenger list from 1911 an
uncle with the name, Jeletcki (copy attached-first line, section 11),
is listed as being from Slonim, and a relative from my grandfather,
also from Slonim.

If you don't mind helping me:

What is your professional opinion of the proper spelling of this name?

Have you ever found this name among Slonim residents?

Hoping that I also be among the hundreds you have already helped-

Yakimovsky

Attached is a photo  in Slonim, Poland circa 1928:   Chaia Yakimovsky Komisarczyk with the two youngest of her 6 children:  Gittel Komisarcyzk [left, my aunt],  and Minnia  Komisarczyk [on the right, my mother].   Chaia married Samuel Komisarczyk.  There other children, Rochla/Ruth, Tema, Sora/Sonia, Maurice.  Only Sonia survives. She will be 100 years old this year.  
 
Chaia, my grandmother, was the oldest of of 3 daughters of Minya Yakimovsky and Moshe [Mowsza] Yakimovsky who owned the Red Roof Inn, which we have now confirmed is #25 on the drawn map of  Slonim landmarks.   Minya and Mowzsa Yakimovsky  had two other daughters: The middle daugher Reizl, and youngest, Frume.
 
Chaia married Schaia/Szjaja Komisarczyk.  A  wedding portrat portrait of them made by an artist is attached. They lived in Slonim,  had six children-five girls and a boy.  He emigrated to the U.S. in 1922, and was able to bring her and the children in 1929.   
 
The Yakimovsky's youngest: Frume Yakimovsky Namiot, married Simcha Namiot.  They and 3 of their 4 children, lived in  Krasnystav, Lublin, and   were murdered in World War II.  The fourth child, Meishe, emigrated to Argentina in 1929.   
 
The Yakimovsky's middle daughter,  Reizl Yakimovsky Astrynski [Ostrynski] married  Shmuel Zelik [known as Zelik] Astrynski.    Shmuel owned Astrynski and Grodzienski -a forestry operation, and he owned a bus company,  amongst other business concerns, and was philanthropic.  I  have recently located a photo in which he appears, and is attached.  He is bottom row, fourth from the  left, front center.  A better photo is available on the site ww.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Grodno/GroPh306.html.  
I do not know if the following tracing of Zelik Astrynski/Ostrynski might help anyone, but in case, I am providing it below:

Hi Eilat:

My name is Joseph Bekinschtein from Melbourne, Australia.
I am researching Bekenstein in Zelwa, Belarus.
Our research locate the family in Derechin as far as 1750-1790.
Around 1850 there were six different branches in Derechin. At that time some of then move to Volkovysk,Wolpa,Zelwa
and maybe Bialystock and Slonim
We have got data about two of the families.When we were working in the other four families
problems happen and the research stopped.
Another genner here in Melbourne suggested me to contact you
because maybe you have any info of any of the branches.


Hoping that maybe you can help me and thanking you in advance

Moshe Milikowski was born in Slonim in December of 1931 to Asher and
Rachel. The family imigrated to Eretz Yisrael when he was 3 years old.
The family first lived in Kfar Saba and Moshe loved nature and
agriculture. He excelled in his studies particularly in biology.
When his family moved to Ramat Gan he decided to go to Mikveh Yisrael
to continue his connection with agricalture. despite the fact that he
was too young ( he just turned 16) and his parents were against it, he
joined the army in January of 1948 to take part in the war of
independence. He first fought in the area of Kibutz Eilon. He fell
while fighting in Tarshicha on July 19th 1948.

From: Jill Chesler

For a number of years I have been researching the family of Abraham (Abram) and Rebecca Chesler from Slonim. Their sons Akiva, Yakov, Herschel, and Yitzack were born in the late 1800s and 3 of them emigrated to the US. The family story is that they left Slonim to avoid being conscripted into the Tzar's army. I have heard that Abraham had another wife (Shana Riva?) and a family with her, but have no evidence of them. I wonder if anybody has any more information on this family.

Jill Chesler, Aptos California


Yuda Wolfowich, a farmer, was born circa 1865
in Deretchin. He was married to my great-aunt Dvora Leah Mereminsky born
circa 1870 in Slonim. They lived & died in Deretchin not too long before
the Nazis came. Family stories tell us that Yuda's father (or grandfather?)
both names unknown had been the only physician in Deretchin. For some
unknown reason he was forced to give up his practice, & became a farmer.

Their eldest child Hadassah (Odel) was hiding in a cellar with her two
children when the Nazis came, & they were murdered. Her husband name
unknown went to the woods at his wife's urging, survived, & moved to Afula,
Israel. A mass murder took place in Deretchin 24 July 1942.

Daughter Rachel born in 1917 was murdered by the Nazis.

Daughter Mina, married to name unknown, with two children, was murdered by
the Nazis. Mina is the woman called "name unknown" in the photograph.

Son Lyota 1914-1984 immigrated and became Elliott Wolf in Los Angeles.

Son Yankel 1902-1990 immigrated to Buenos Aires, where he met Bettina
Dintzer, & took on her surname in order to facilitate immigration to
America, & eventually to Los Angeles.

Daughter Yaffa 1917-1989 imm. to Palestine in 1935 & married Ze'ev Hendler.

Please let me know if the photograph comes through, & if this is the sort
of information you want.

My grandfather left Slonim when he was thrown out of the Russian Army.
 
He went to Grochow, a suburb of Warsaw, to teach languages.    There he met my grandmother and they married.     My father was born in 1901 in Grochow.    They did not register his birth.    They came to London, England the following year, 1902.    My father was stateless until after WW2, when he became a British citizen.
 
Once again, thank you for linking me up with Joseph and, hopefully, other possib le Shereshevskys out there.

Grandpa Shears (Szereszewski)'s Notes

I ( Abraham) was born on 16th April 1869 in the town of Slonim,
Governa of Grodno, Russia.   Malcah was born in April 1875 in the
village of Dechnowo, District of Nowo-Minsk, Governa of Warsaw,
Russian Poland.

In 1885 I became a teacher of Hebrew in a village near my native town,
Slonim.   I subsequently occupied the post of teacher in several other
villages.

In 1887 I arrived in Moscow.   At the end of 1887, I was taken to
military service.   I was released after three months service.

In 1892, owing to the wholesale persecution of the Jews, I was among
others expelled from Moscow.

In the same year I arrived in Poland.  After great misery and
misfortunes, I at last found a resting place in the townlet of Karczow
near Warsaw.  Having stayed there in the capacity of a teacher of
Russian over a year, I afterwards occupied the position of a teacher
in several other places.   At last, in 1895, I opened my school for
Russian and Polish in Grochow (a village, rather a suburb of Warsaw).

For the first time I met Malcah who was intgroduced to me as a future
private pupil, and turned out to become my wife.

On the 13th January 1893, while in Karczow, my mother died.

My father died on 24th Nissan, 5652 ( April, 1892).

Our wedding took place on 23rd February 1896 in Grochow.

My father in law - Isor Kleinburg died on 9th Nissan 5657 (1897).

Isadore (Isor) was born in Grochow 12th January 1901.

My mother in law died 7th Nissan 5663( 1902).

Our daughter, Leah, was born on 27th Elul 5663 (1903).  She died at
12.00 noon on 10th May 1904.   Buried on May 12th at 3.45 p.m. Sign of
the grave - C - 3-26.   Next tombstone Rebecca Feld.

We arrived in London from Warsaw on 28th February 1902.

Elizabeth was born on July 1st 1905.

Bath-Ammi was born at 11.30 July 30th 1907.

Sylvia was born on May 12th 1915

I had my tests upgraded to 67 markers. So far, I have one match for 37 markers with a genetic distance of 4. That person, a Mr. Kaplan, has ancestors from Slonim , Belarus. He says his family was actually the Weinbergs since the Kaplan name was due to an adoption to keep a son out of the Russian army. He and I probably have a common grandfather within the past 500 years. That is an improvement over 10,000 years (ha!). The really interesting thing is - I got a photo of Mr. Kaplan and he resembles my Dad a great deal.
 --------------------------------------------------
My maternal grandparents Tsivia/Celia and Joseph SALBERG (we are  not sure
that this is really his last name) emigrated from either Warsaw or  Ruzany
which is near Slonim circa 1900 to Manchester, England.  My uncle  Solomon was
born there.  Joseph left for NYC in 1903.  Celia who is  listed on the Ellis
Island manifest as Ciolie (?) followed with Solomon, age  two, and a cousin
Leah Goldberg, single, age 21 in 1904.  My assumption is  that Leah was from
Manchester and that Joseph and Celia went to Manchester  because there was
family in place.

How do I get the emigration records  from Poland to England?  How do I find
records of my family in  Manchester?

Thank you all,

am looking for a way I could contact Esther Shapiro Rafaeli,
author of a book on Rabbi Yehoshua Yitzhak "Eisel Harif" SHAPIRA
called "A Modest Genius." R. SHAPIRA lived his life in the early to
mid-19th century in what was then Lithuania (Gluobokie and Slonim,
primarily). She (Ms. Rafaeli) is a descendant of the rabbi.

I am looking for her so that perhaps she could clarify the
relationship between SHAPIRA and R. Jehiel HEILPERIN, author of
Seder Hadorot.  I have seen this on a tree available on "Family Tree
of the Jewish People," but since I have not heard back from the
submitter of the material to FTJP, I have no way of knowing how
reliable this information is without clarification from people who
are more familiar with primary source material. I assume either Ms.
Shapiro Rafaeli or a close cousin submitted the material, since they
are the only line on the tree that extends from the 17th century to
the present day.

I would appreciate it if you would contact me privately with any
information on Esther Rafaeli or on how I might contact her.  I know
she might be quite elderly, since her husband passed away at age 89
some years ago.

Thank you.

I contacted you last year regarding my grandfather's family - Szereszevski (Shereshevsky) from Slonim, Bylorusse.
 
I wonder if you could help me in relation to my grandmother - Mrs. Szereszevska (maiden name Klejnburg).
 
My grandmother's family - Klejnburg - were bakers from Grochow, just to the east of Warsaw.
 
I would love to go visit Grochow as I have read that it did not get destroyed during  WWII.
 
My father was born in Grochow and he and his parents emigrated to the UK in 1902.  
 
I never met my grandparents as they both died before I was 1.
 
Would you be able to find out for me whether the Klejnburg family was registered there so that I could try to trace my roots?     My grandmother's name was Malka Esther Klejnburg.  She was born in Dechnovah in the Novominsk district near Warsaw in April 1875.   Her parents were Israel Issar and Gitshe Klejnburg. She and my grandfather were married in Grochow in 1898 or 1899.
 
I very much look forward to hearing from you.
 
Yours sincerely,

 My Great-Great Grandfather, Harris VENEZKY (ne Hirsch WINNITZKY) dictated a
memoir of sorts when his wife, Rebecca DOMISCH, died.  He mentions that his
wife's family is from "Slovain state in Russia."  Well, I don't find
reference to a Slovain, but I have two thoughts:  1) Slovain means either
Slovenia or perhaps it's an old term for Slovenia, Hungary, parts of
Ukraine, all lumped together or 2) He meant Slonim , but the person to whom
he dictated it thought he said Slovain.

Here are his words - maybe it will make sense to someone?  The caps in the
names are mine:

"My wife was Rebecca DOMISCH. She was born August 4, 1861 and died July 30,
1934. Her father was Julian DOMISCH, who is buried in Rosenhayn, NJ. Her
mother was Zelda DOMISCH. Rebecca's sisters were Esther, Sophia, and
Pauline, and her brother was Louis Wolfe. Rebecca came from the state of
Slovain in Russia. She came to America (NY) in 1882 and lived at Rodkens
Place, NY City, near Cherry Street."

I am open to any thoughts or suggestions you may have.

 In the case of my maternal family, the family was from Slonim and went to
Odessa (where my Uncle was born) on their way out of Russia.  If you asked
the family where from in Russia? they would say Slonim,
while my Uncle always proudly announced he was from Odessa.
"Added prestige" - perhaps as a sign they were able to leave Russia?

Regarding the R. Yehoshua Issac Shapira of Glovenka and Slonim, etc.,
was
he supposed to have been the GREAT GRANDSON of Jehiel Heilperin ("Seder

it spelled out before is that his father's mother was a grandchild of R.
Jehiel, through Jehiel's son Isaac. 

This isn't meant to be a complaint, but a true question, since I don't really
have access to the primary sources that would spell this out.

Thanks!

Rabbi Heilprin (1660-1746) published Seder HaDorot, which contains a chronology of events and personalities from creation until 1696. He was the first of the rabbi-genealogists to record rabbinical family origins.(now in very fine print)

From the Minsk Yizkor book;

The Gaon Yechiel Halpern, known from his historical work "Seder Hadorot" [The Order of the Generations], served as the Rabbi of Minsk in the 18 th century, and headed a famous yeshiva. At that time, the great one of the Gaonim of that generation and the following generations arrived in Minsk: Reb Aryeh Leib, the author of "Shaagat Aryeh" who also founded a large yeshiva ( he was connected to Volozhin). However, something took place between these two yeshivas and they became hostile to each other. The people of Minsk defended the author of " Seder Hadorot", and sent the author of the "Shaagat Aryeh" away from the city on a Friday. The monument of the grave of the " Seder Hadorot" stands to this day, intact and fenced off, in the old cemetery, which was completely ploughed and paved over. All of its monuments and graves were willfully desecrated.

Byten was a small town just south of Slonim prior to WWII with
approximately 1200 jews.  Thanks to the help of Dave Fox we were able
to obtain the revision lists for 1806, 1850 and 1858.  They were
translated, but I think that some where along the way they were not
included in the Belarus data base.  At least they are not obvious to me.

I do have copies of these records and would be happy to provide them
to anyone who may have an interest in Byten.

for Slonim? According to Miriam Weiner they are available.  She lists
the locations for these records.

My Grandmother's maiden name was Slonim, which is the
name of a little town near Minsk. I am just guessing
that  her father, David Slonim and mother Basha (?)
Slonim were from Slonim and took that surname when
they came to New Jersey before the turn of the
century. I keep wondering what name they used in
Slonim ?

I am looking for, but have not yet found, a town, Zetl (no, not shtetl),
that is in the general area of Dvoretz, Slonim and Baranovichi in
Belarus. Any ideas or alternate names, anyone?  Thanks.

 My great-grandmother Rachel (nee Prushkin) Meyerowitz came from
Brestovitsa, south
of Grodno and just east of Krynki.

I've found a couple of paths worth pursuing immediately.

1) I've found a fellow genner whose ggm was a Prushkin from Amdur nearby
and whose father was also
Yehuda Prushkin!  Hopefully I have a cousin there but time will tell.

2) At Ellis Island, I found a 1921 arrival for Kajla (age 40) BREZKIN
and her son Zejdel (11) from
Wielke Brestowice (same town!!).  Kajla listed a brother Abram RUBIN
back in Brestovitsa and was
going to her husband Abraham (address in NY crossed out, penciled in
address in Paterson, NJ).
In the 1930 census, I found an Abraham BRESKIN (age 60) with wife Katie
(age 56, immigration date 1921) and son Samuel (21) living
on Bide(?) Street in the Bronx.   In 1934, a Samuel BRESKIN married a
Sue SHAPSS on 6/9/1934 in Brooklyn.
A Samuel BRESKIN died 1/16/1995 in Jamaica, Queens.  I have not yet
found a death certificate for Abraham
BRESKIN or tracked down any descendents.

3)  Many other BRESKIN come from Slonim, but I have no known connections
there.

So, progress is being made in my search for descendents of Yehuda and
Rose (nee FARS) Prushkin from Brestovitsa.

I am very happy to find your page, I am from Argentina, my name is Claudia Libovich Kunitza, and for some time i am trying to look for information about the family of my grandparents, and to know if i still have some relatives in Slonim or other parts of the world.
when saw all these photos I cried a lot, I discovered my grandmother in one of them, when she was young, in the Ha shomer ha tsair number- slnm28-, there are a few girls standing, and one sitting . I have the original photo with my boby who is sitting!!!!
i also have few more photos she gave me to keep. I loved her as my best friend, not only as a grandmother. so I am trying to keep her memories alive.
so, when you want I can send you the photos for your page, and if you have some information for me I will be very grateful.
Greetings Claudia Libovich
I am seeking information about my grandfather, Charles Celnick, who
according
to his New York City death certificate, was born in Slonim, Russia, now
Belarus,
on March 26, 1872. His parents were Joseph Celnick and Sarah Mazer.
According to his petition for naturalization, he emigrated to
the U.S. in January, 1891. He married Julia Novak, from either
Austria or Czechosloavakia, around 1899, in New York City.

My grandparents lived and worked most of their lives within a few block
area
of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Charles Celnick was a contract manufacturer
of men's vests. They had three children, Eva, Herman, (my father) and
Shirley.
Eva died of TB at two years of age in 1902.
She is buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery in Brooklyn where there is a
Slonim Burial Society area. The society's earliest burials are several
years
after Eva's death.

The petition for naturalization does not list the ship or the fellow
passengers
as do later petitions. I was not able to find my grandparents' marriage
certificate.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Martin Celnick

Elaine Biblin Spiegel El529@aol.com wrote....towns; Slonim/Motele/Khomsk/Drochiczyn/Osha ( Molodechno and Kosovo) Families; Kosovsky/Shkolnik/Chemerinsky/Goldman....
Not just becasue I am a tay-sachs carrier, a trait from pale families that intermarry, but I think my Kosovsky family had alot of cousin intermarriages back and forth no matter what towns the cousins lived in--many persons I contact seem to have a Goldman/ Kosovsky /Chemerinsky connection
growing up in chicago, my mom, born in 1906, thought her surname of Kosovsky [our grandfather changed it to Kosovske, his brother spelled it Kosovski] to be an odd name, but I have found out that in Europe it was as common as "Johnson" and can be spelled over 30 phonetic ways--
actually a New York researcher named Bob Kosovsky has about 22 different phonetic spellings on his data base and he has contacted many different Kosovsky families with the varient spellings-- have you ever contacted him?
....then in addition to translators at entry ports, different countires have diffferent spellings for it--even with ska endings for a girl and sko endings for a boy and j next to a y and i next to a y; I once found a Russian professor whose surname had a kiy ending for the name kossovskiy--
I have a Maysha Itzock and a Moishavella* Kosovsky on my tree as well as a Yomi but I do not think these translate to Teddy--tho Meishavela* might it means Moshe wolf and it has lots of phonetic spellings* these guys are from a group of 4-5 brothers whom I have no information about
i don't have a teddy kosovsky on my tree but i might have such a relative--there are 4-5 branches of kosovsky /kosofsky on my tree that were never completed as rabbi Y.D goldman who was my main source of information for my tree never gave me all the information I needed--there were 4-5 brothers who went to New York in the late 1880's--Teddy could be from one of those 4 families
I think I once saw a Teddy Kosofsky on SSI social security death index
my great great great grandfather was Yeudel Dovid [Yehuda Dovid] Kosovsky was born before 1800 and was a rabbi dayann [jewish judge] in the town of Drochitchen/ Drohiczyn/ Drachichyn/ Drogichin/r Drochichyn--the town was originally called Davechyonovichi or Dovecherovichny until 1655
he had at least 9 kids
my great great grandfather Eliezer Sholo'mo was one of rabbi YD Kosovsky's sons, the other were: the oldest daughter Esther, rabbi Ahron, Yisroel Kosofsky, 2nd born child Matshi Itzock, and the 4-5 brothers for whom I have no tree are: the 8th born child Alec/Elijah, the 6th born child Yomi who took the surname of "Kay" in america, Hirsch Leib Kosofsky, Meisha Velvel kosofsky, I do not know why some were Kosovsky and others Kosofsky, and I don't know if there was a sister Pesil
Eliezer Sholo'mo was the father of rabbi Aaron Kosovsky who was my great grandfather.
Aaron and his son [ my great uncle] Sam, came to America around 1903? tho other records give later date , so Sam would not get drafted into the czar's army--they left my great grandmother Rachel Leah Peshkowsky Kosovsky behind with daughter Pesil- because -they were really on the run from the czar's army
Aaron had other children but Meyer age 17 drowned while swiming in the bug river, and two twin sisters had died in infancy; his other son, my grandfather Yehuda Laeb "Leon" Kosovsky lived in odessa where he worked in a factory as there were no jobs in his town--Leon was named after his mom's dad Yehuda leib Peshkowsky--in 1906, Leon, his mother Racquel Leah, his wife Manya and their baby Sema left Odessa for America--Sema/Simone was my mother, Celia Kosovske Biblin
my great grandfather Aaron/Ahron Kosovsky had an uncle also named Aaron/Ahron Kosovsky [they were both rabbis] he was one of the nine mentioned above
the great great uncle Aaron Kosovsky and his wife Kayle/Kalith had a daughter named Chaia or Chavay who was born on the Zasihnov estate in Bereyu which is in Osha a town outside of Minsk and Pinsk
Chavay Kosovsky married rabbi MeishaVella/Mosche Zev/Morris Wolf Shkolnik,1860-1941 [son of rabbi Chaim (yeshiva?) shkolnik from the town of Slonim/ Kossova
after Chavay died in 1931, this rabbi Shkolnik remarried and his 2nd wife was named Dora
one of chavay's sons was Sam Shkolnik [1909-1996] he and his wife Muirel 'Bess' [Goldstein] were the parents of 2 children--one of these children was Selwyn/Sel
and on eilat's website [her e-mail address is listed in the address posting of this e-mail] Chavay's decendant's posted pictures and information about their tree--this genealogy was done mostly by Dee/Delores who is still alive and is the wife of the late dentist dr Selwyn/Sel shkolnik--bob kosovsky might have an e-mail for Dee as she contacted him concerning his kosovsky research
esther kosovsky married rabbi Yossel/Yosef goldman [son of rabbi tzmach and his wife nisha chana from the town of khomsk/chomsk--but they also lived in brest] one of their sons Mushe Zev is Steve's great great grandfather who lived in New York, another son was rabbi Elijah/Eliyahu who married Chia Lipshif [from Brisk] and one of their sons was rabbi Yeduel Dovid Goldman who married [his own 1st cousin] Sarah Esther daughter of rabbi Mordechi Zindel/Zundel Rubenstein from the town of Molodechno near Vilna --the Goldman tree is confusing because they have alot of cousin intermarriages
apparently Sarah Esther's mother was a Goldman and her father a Rubenstein--her mom must have been a sister to rabbi Tzmach Goldman or a sister to his wife Nisha Chana
I was told that my great great grandfather Eliezer Sholomo's wife Razael was also from the Goldman family and that her mom Chi Cyril may have been a Goldman as well
plus i know nothing about the wife and mother of rabbi YD Kosovsky--perhaps they were Goldmans too
rabbi Y.D. Goldman had 3 sons, and 1 daughter named Eileen
Eileen is the mother of Kinereth,Donnie, Miriam, and Naomi
am researching the Bublacki and Minkovitch families from Slonim. I
have recently discovered that Avraham was active in the 51st Unit of
the Shchors Partisans (though he was killed in 1943). Avraham (b
1921) had two sisters Lebe and Blumi. Their mother was Rifke (nee
Minkovitch) and their father Beryl. They lived in Ul 3 Maya, Slonim.

My wife's great aunt visited her sister Rifke in 1937 and brought back
some photos of the family in Slonim. I believe she went there for a
family wedding but we have no other details.

Be nice to hear from anyone looking at the 51st unit of partisans, and
Slonim in general. I plan to visit Slonim in July with a party led by
the chairman of the Slonim Association in Israel.

VISIT TO SLONIM, Friday, May 30, 1998 by Joan Krotenberghttp://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/grodno/GGGDec98.htm   
After breakfasting on omelets, we left for Slonim, about 50 kilometers awayJoan was bubbling over, in her own inimitable style, with enthusiasm and joy. The countryside was heavily wooded; and it was still intermittently drizzling. We crossed a bridge over the River Shara and entered Slonim. We stopped at the large Town Hall. Vitaly went in to see when the Mayor could meet with us. He told Vitaly that he would meet us at the Slonim Town Museum as soon as he could get away. The town¹s museum, in several rooms of exhibits, illustrated the history of Slonim and the surrounding area from the Mesozoic era through WW II. A lovely young girl explained the exhibits to us.
Slonim was burned after WW I, but Ruchel Chesak Merer, my Grandmother and Mayer Merer, my Grandfather and their children Ben, Harry and Sam, my father had left by 1911. Slonim had a population of 30,000 people prior to WW II, a majority of whom were Jewish. Today there are 55,000 people. The Slonimer Rabbi led an important Hasidic dynasty here. WW II was a period that saw the complete destruction of Slonim¹s Jewish community.
After our tour, we went to the Museum¹s office. Just as we met the group of ladies who staff and run the museum, the Mayor Ugrinovich Eduardovich Vadim arrived and took us back to his office where we had an extended conversation. We talked about the city, the school system, the medical and dental systems, and economic conditions. Sandy asked him about the local governmental structure. He told us that the Chief of the Grodno Oblast (province) appointed him Mayor as he did the three deputies. The term of office is indefinite. There are no municipal elections in Belarus!! Our conversation, as they say diplomatically, was full and frank. He gave us two machine embroidered cloth emblems with the town's name and symbol. He, then, insisted on showing us the town. We went to the site of the Jewish cemetery. There is a reconstructed memorial gate put there by the Israeli Slonimer society but no existing gravestones, only symbolic ones for the 30,000 Jews of the area who perished in WW II. He showed us the new housing and textile and paper factories and the old scaffolded synagogue. During this period, we had two passing hail storms and heavy rain. The Mayor, in a suit and tie, was drenched.
Then, we proceeded to the outskirts of town, down a dirt road, and into the woods. There, the Germans, during several Aktions, had taken Jews and some others to be shot. As the rain fell, we contemplated the fenced in mass graves, the memorial markers with flowers at their feet. We knew
and were deeply moved that Chesaks had died here. A great-granddaughter (me) of Shmuel and Sima Esther Chesak had come to this spot to honor and grieve for the Chesaks who lie here. I rejoice that their genes live on in their great-great grandchildren. We, then, went to another area of the forest with additional mass graves and memorials. The rain continued; to us it was Hashem, crying for his slaughtered people.
We invited the Mayor to lunch at a restaurant of his choosing. There, we discussed such subjects as American voluntarism, Belarus¹s poverty, racism and poverty in the United States, and his plans for Slonim¹s future. We gave the Mayor a token gift of a calculator and pictures of NYC, which Lisa had obtained, for our trip. After lunch the Mayor left for his office; and we returned to the museum.
The lady in charge gave us a book written in Hebrew to look at. There were fabulous photographs of Old Slonim. Vitaly took pictures of the pictures. (It was the Slonim Yizkor Book published by the Slonimer Society in Israel; and now, I indeed obtained a copy). While Joan and Vitaly were engaged with the book, the staff asked me to examine some Judaica they had acquired. They had a green metallic Tzadukka sign from the synagogue, an old Shulchan Aruch without a cover. (This is a codification of Jewish law written in the 16th century by Joseph Caro and used by orthodox Jewry to this day). They, also, had a very small torn portion of a Torah scroll and one-half of a daily siddur (prayer book). They also had letters written in Yiddish. They want to start a specifically Jewish section in the museum. Meantime, Joan had found what appears to be a picture of her grandfather Mayer Merer in the Yiskor book. The picture was dated 1941. This is a mystery because he left Slonim in 1909. Either the picture was misdated or he had a twin or other relative who was a dead ringer for him. We bade them goodbye soon after. We gave the older ladies crayons for their grandchildren and make-up for the young docent who escorted us through the museum. Vitaly gave them a small admission fee plus something additional for their personal services.
The Mayor and Vitaly had arranged for us to meet Rosa and Yehuda Israelovitch, an elderly Jewish couple. We spoke to them directly in a gehockte Yiddish and through Vitaly in Belarussian (Russian?) The apartment was in a seedy apartment building. The rooms, especially the kitchen and bathroom with their broken, rusty fixtures, were small. Her daughter lives in Slonim and her granddaughter is in school in Israel. She gave us a letter to mail in the US to her brother in San Francisco. We asked her about anti-Semitism. Rosa did all the talking (which is to be expected of a Jewish wife.) She told us that it certainly exists.
We were lucky because everyone we met on this trip has been kind, and hospitable and gone out of his or her way to be helpful, even though we are obviously Jewish. We drove back to our hotel in Baranovichi. We had tuna fish from cans we brought from the USA on bread remaining from our Lutowiska picnic, slathered with mayo from packets given to us by Helene. Tomorrow, we drive through Pinsk to David Gorodok.

My great-grand father Salomon (Shlomo) BERLIN travelled by foot and railway from Rostov on the Don to Paris when he was 15, around 1880. He eventually settled in Paris and married a catholic girl( his neighbour). He was alone, his parents had remained in Russia. The family was originally from Grodno guberniya (Slonim and Derechin, now Belarus). He lived by working on the way. I have little idea why he headed to Paris.

That is something I would be very interested to learn.

I know that his father was an " enlightened jew". Maybe there was a group of them in Paris? after all, Theodore Herzl dreamed of Israel in Paris at that time, the time of Dreyfus affair.

I have just returned from the trip to Slonim organised by the
remarkable Zvi Shefet - born in Slonim and erstwhile partisan fighter.
I will put my photos and video online soon and write up my impressions
in fuller detail.

The Great Synagogue in the town is in a very sorry state of neglect
despite Zvi's heroic efforts to help build a new roof - it is
watertight but with no windows and easy access to vagrants, it is in
a very sorry state. It is no good waiting for the Belarus government
to fund its repair - the town has only just managed to restore its
~Orthodox Church. The great synagogue would make a wonderful venue for
the Slonim museum that houses a few Jewish artifacts and memorabilia
about the partisans. Is it beyond our means and will to have the
wonderful building properly restored?

PS are there any Slonimites out there with a current base in the UK?
If so, I would like to hear from them. My wife's grandmother and
family were from the town. So I am a Slonimite by marriage.

Both litvaksig and the shavli district research group have been of great service to me:

- both helped me track down my gr.gr. grandfather and gr.gr grandmother

- the documents I received as a contributor to the shavli group expanded this even further so that i could get a whole layout of the wider Chaveson (Havezon) mishpoho in the Shavli region right back to the end of the 18th century and in one case, to the 1750's, thanks to the 1795 revision lists.

What was especially exciting recently was a reference on Litvaksig
to the poor jews shelter in UK - listing names, dates and ships
they took while staying over in UK
http://chrysalis.its.uct.ac.za/CGI/CGI_ROOTWEB.EXE
I was on the site only half an hour before I discovered my grandfather
Leib Chawesohn and gr. grandfather Sheye Chawe(n)sohn on a business trip to UK. even their ages were exact as well as the Swansea and London destination they were going to.

Thanks. Keep up the supply of material!

A note from the net: My Grandparents, on my Dearly Beloved Mother's side of My Family were Mordechai (Motel) Lipschitz and Lea (Leja) Lipschitz nee Blecher. They were from Siauliai, Lithuania where my Dear Mother was born in 1927. My Grandfather, Mordechai (Motel) Lipschitz perished in 1944 in the Kaufering (Dachau) concentration camp and my Grandmother, Lea (Leja) Lipschitz nee Blecher perished in 1944 in Stutthof. My Grandmother, Lea (Leja) Lipschitz nee Blecher sacrificed her life to comfort her youngest daughter in Stutthof when she was taken off to be executed. My Grandmother, Lea (Leja) Lipschitz nee Blecher was put on a boat along with her youngest daughter, Perla Lipschitz and the nazi beasts sank the boat.

My Grandparents on my Father's side of the Family, Yitzchak (Jchak) Luksenburg and Esther (Estera) Luksenburg nee Flumen were from Zwolen, Poland. Both my Grandparents were sent off to the Treblinka death camp and were savagely murdered by the nazi beasts in 1943.

If there is any one person out there in this entire world that would have known any of my Grandparents from either side of my family, or even my Beloved Parents, Carl (Kopel) Luksenburg and Toby (Tova) Luksenburg nee Lipschitz, or my Beloved Uncle Morris (Mosche Lipschitz), please respond. I have been doing research over the past several years looking for anyone out there that might have photographs, birth records, or anything related to my Family. Thank You... Kindest Regards, MIL.

Message: Thank you for your wwwsite, from information found we traced family
members who perished in the Holocaust. The photos you show on your Slonim page
shows [we think] several family members, most of who died in the Treblinka
death camp. My own views are that it was the myth that 'All Jews had money and
were wealthy', was the match that lit the holocaust-fire, but it was robbery
and and the thought of looted personal gain what got the lynch mob motivated.
These people were looters masquerading as nationalists, just the same as Hitler
was when he robbed 2 firms of German banknote printers during the Munich
putsch.

 
From: Lawrence Litwin <theslice@sympatico.ca
HI all. I was wondering if there were any good sites for researching the Slonim Shtetl?
Any help would be great.
Specifically dealing with Yugeroffsky or other spellings of such name.

Thanks.

Yoram Wolkowyski (geowisky@covad.net)
: My parents Dr. Shlomo and Mina Wolkowyski escaped from Slonim in 1941
/42 to the forest close to Slonim to join the Russian Partisans.
The Russian partisan usually did not admitted Jews, but they agreed to take my
Father and Mother because they needed a Medical Doctor and a Nurse.
After the war my parents moved to Israel where they lived for rest of their
life.
Anyone who would like to know more please feel free to contact me.

Eva Bublacki was known in Liverpool as Eva Black, she had two children, a son Harry Black, and a daughter Rosa, we think she married my wife great grandfathers brother, see this email from my daughter Linda who lives in Newcastle Upon Tyne England>>>>


She was a funny one this Eva. In 1926 she went to Africa (Durban) and is recorded coming back into the country in 1926. She describes herself as a furniture dealer and lived at 6 Ravenscroft Road, Birkenhead. She is listed as a Russian citizen.

I found a Samuel Black who died in 1889 in Birkenhead. You'd have to order the death certificate to see if it is him, but I reckon this must be her husband. So if this is her husband, then Samuel Black must be Nathan Black's brother. It fits as Samuel was born in 1864 and Nathan in 1861. So Eva is a relation by marriage.
She is the woman in ; http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/slonim/slo_pix/new_scenes/082608_82_b.gif
For other pictures of Eva during her visit t her family in Slonim:
http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/slonim/slonim.html
Our family are related to the Bublackis of Slonim, and one side resided in Leeds, a large tailoring town, NATHAN BLACK formerly BUBLACKI came to Leeds, he had quite a large family, best regards.

In your research on Slonim, have you come across a little village that
was located near Slonim called Gnoino?

Thanks in advance.

I will be in Belarus in March, 2011, teaching in Minsk for two weeks. I plan to go to Slonim, where my grandfather was born. I would be interested in hearing of any travel tips you may have collected over the years -- I.e. is the old Jewish cemetery open to the public, or do private arrangements need to be made in advance to visit? The same with the synagogue?

Thanks,
