Fw: Righteous Gentile Award for a Pidhajcer

JK
 

Hello All,

When I visited Pidhajce in 1999, the 3 generational Sikorski family invited me to their house and presented me with the attached certificate for Ms. Sikorska.

The eldest Sikorski I met at the house was the daughter of the awarded recipient, who hid two Jewish boys named Kessler (I seem to remember that their father was an optometrist?)

Someone informed on her--she and the boys were murdered.

Among the elderly Ukrainians I met, many came forward and said that relations were relatively good between the Jews and Ukrainians but the fascist component in town was enough to enable the Holocaust. The Nazis had their Ukrainian units but most Ukes fought on the Soviet side and suffered some of the highest casualty rates of the war.

Fascists were usually awarded stolen land and property, so they had a foul motive for their politics. A part of the ghetto established by the fascists in Podhajce remains derelict to this day due to epidemic that broke out there.

An Ukrainian American in the Midwest stands accused of war crimes in Pidhajce, for a massacre of Christians in Pidhajce and other towns but after the Shoah ended. The Ukrainian auxilliary units employed by the Nazis also killed Christians for partisan activities and hiding Jews...and once the war was over they expelled and murdered most of the Polish population of west Ukraine.

looking for ancestors from Podhajce

Adam
 

Hello everyone, I have an unusual question. According to a family story, my great-grandfather married a girl of Jewish descent. Because she came from a religious family, she was considered dead by this family, as if she never lived. My great-grandmother's family left. And the whole thing is happening in Podhajce or the surrounding area. Has anyone heard such a story? Maybe there are some people who have left the community? I would be very grateful for any information.

Andrew...

Well, it would help if you told us a bit about what you have tried and what results you obtained...

For example, there's some low hanging fruit that most folks would have tried:
Google the surnames of interest along with 'podhajce'; read all you can on 'jewishgen.org' about Podhajce; JewishGen is an excellent way to find other researchers that are researching the surnames you are interested in. Spend some time and learn to use it. Use maps -- get a feel for the large towns nearby where your surnames of interest may have moved to; and so on, as far away as (100+km). Podhajce was in AH Galicia... there's a Galica Sig on JewishGen...  Search the databases on Ehpes.com for surnames of interest. Learn to look for alternate spellings of your surnames -- spelling in many cases depended on who was recording what they heard. 

That's how I started... I was amazed to find that my whole family deserted Podhajce for Czernowitz in the late 1890's and there were records in the Czernowitz archives that didn't exist in Podhajce concerning them. From there I found other kindred spirits that were able to help me.  

So let us know what you have tried... If you haven't tried any of the above, then google 'genealogical research' and that should get you started.

Also, look for Ellis Island records for ships landing in NY around the turn of the century where folks from Podhajce were coming in by by the droves...  Have you a handle on any relatives with the surnames you are interested in or are related to you?

As I said, you didn't disclose much... but these are some of easy ways to begin.

Best.

Stephen, Hi.
The reason I’m reaching out to you is because my surname is also Baumrind and I would like to find out if we are related. You seem to know the Baumrind’s family History and since it’s not such a common name, I’d be eager to find out more.

Hello,
Looking for the surname Talenfeld. Not sure from Podhajce or Berezany. Look at the pic attached- the shop behind the people is Aron Talenfeld's.

Hi Moshe.

Perhaps, if you can give me as much of your lineage as possible (Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, etc.) I'll be able to see if your group fits with mine. It would also help to know where your family lived in the 1800s, and where you live now.

There are several Moshe Baumrinds in my family also.

Regards,

Stephen

Stephen, I came across your comments about Shulem Baumrind while researching his Congregation Massas Benjamin. I have been looking into the my family history recently. I'm Tim's son, Valerie's grandson, Elliot's great grandson, Max's 2nd great grandson, and Shulem is my 3rd great grandfather.
Would you be able to help me fill in the gaps in my knowledge about Shulem and his family?

Re: Surnames in Podhajce

STEPHEN BAUMRIND
 

Hello Christopher,
Your Grandmother Valerie was a great favorite of mine, and my first cousin. Uncle Elliot and my father Harold were brothers.
Their father Max was the son of Rabbi Shulem Baumrind, grandson of Mordechai Baumrind, and great grandson of Rabbi Moshe 
Baruch Bezin. When I was 12 Max told me I was the 7th oldest son. Since I've given you the 6 generations I know, I'm still 
looking for that 7th oldest son (Rabbi Moshe Baruch Bezin's father). If, in your searches, you find him, please let me know.
Hope this helps.
Captain Stephen J.Baumrind, USCGR=RET (the full title). Your Mom called me Steve.

Jean,
 
Chag sameach to you and all.  I am using this non-work day to do some long-overdue catch up, including all-things Podhajce.  Your email below prompted me to follow the link, and to the page about Congregations Massas Benjamin.  On that page I found the following about the shul:
 
The cornerstone says:
In memory of the brothers Shimon and Yisroel, sons of Moshe Einshtases (ad menucha, i.e., to his eternal rest), an offering on behalf of their mother, Golda Einshtases, 1926.
 
This info is news to me, important to me, and sent shivers down my spine:  Shimon ("Zygmunt" or "Sigmund") Einstoss was my great uncle. Yisroel ("Sruel" or "Irving") Einstoss (known by Greenberg, Golda's maiden name, as required by then-applicable-in-Podhajce Austro-Hungarian law), was my maternal grandfather.  Both of them were machers in the smoked fish industry, which I imagine was how they had the means to contribute to the construction of the shul.
 
This group continues to be a blessing.
 
Jon

Jon--that is really exciting.  I almost didn't respond to the original letter.  Now I am so glad that I did.

Carol, 
And Zeiger surname? Was the surname Kramarczuk combine with Zeiger? In Berezhany there was Karol Hirschfeld- his mother was Kramarczuk, and her mother was Maria Zeiger. What do you think?
