The Shoah

My direct ancestors were all fortunate enough to have left Europe before the rise of the German Nazi state which culminated in the murder of millions who could not escape the concentration camps. However, through my research, I have identified a number of individuals in my family tree who were not so lucky. I have posted here what I have been able to piece together about their lives. The Yad Vashem archives maintain a massive, easily searchable database of over three million victims, from which much of this information was obtained.

Michael Surkis is married to my first cousin once removed, Eleanor Surkis (nee Bloom). He, his parents, his uncle, his grandfather and his five siblings were in the Bershad concentration camp, in a region known as Transnistria. Transnistria is a part of modern Moldova (of the former Soviet Union), and was occupied by Romania during World War II. The camps in Transnistria are not as well known as those in Poland and Germany, but they were where the Romanian government deported their Jewish population. Michael and his siblings survived the camp, but his parents, his uncle and his grandfather starved to death during their imprisonment, giving whatever food they had to the children. In this video clip, Michael talks about his experience in Transnistria during the war - click on the play button to watch the interview.



Another fascinating and tragic resource is the Yizkor book prepared by surviving family members of the town of Goniondz, in Poland (where my Treszczanski ancestors lived). The book was published by the "Committee of Goniondz Association in USA and in Israel" in 1960. Interestingly, one of the contributing authors and editors from Israel was a Treszczanski - Fischl, who changed his last name to Yitzchaky in memory of his father Itzhak who died in the holocaust (Fischl is my half second cousin, once removed). Furthermore, the US Editor was I. Ben-Meir Treszczanski (although I do not know if and how he was related to me).

The JewishGen Web site has put much of the book online in translated form - click here to read more. The passages about the final days of the Jewish Community are especially powerful.

Two members of one branch of the Rothschild family from Gunzenhausen, Germany were in the camps and were subsequently able to emigrate. Shoah victim Benno Kellerman's first cousin once removed Karl Rothschild was in Dachau before making it to England, and Karl's son Max was in Buchenwald before escaping to Holland, where he spent two years in an attic room during the war. Both eventually resettled in the United States.

Karl was my half third cousin, twice removed - our common ancestor Kalman Lob Kolonymous Rothschild was his great-great grandfather, and my great-great-great-great grandfather. The story of Karl Rothschild's home at Banhofstrasse 35 in Gunzenhausen, his family's experiences during the war, and the story of his mother's home at Marktplatz 40 were all well documented as part of a project for students at a Gunzenhausen junior high school. The students at Stephani-Gunzenhausen Volksschule did an incredible job of research, not only by work in their own town but through interviews with survivors and descendants around the world!
