Polish Grandfather - POW
I came across your
wonderful website after finding out about the book "The Forgotten Holocaust".
As a child of a Polish survivor, I have long been curious about my family.
Only my grandmother and her six children made it to the USA after being
liberated from a camp. My grandfather had been a Polish POW and the family
didn't find out about him until after they had already moved to the USA.
He stayed in Poland. I am interested in finding out more of my family's
story and to find any relatives who might be in Poland. email@example.com
Seeking Victims of Antimalarial Medications
Dear Mrs Schwartz,
I was interested to read your web pages documenting atrocities committed
during the second world war in Nazi concentration camps. In particular,
my interest is in finding information regarding the use of unwilling victims
to perfect antimalarial medications. Although, some information has surfaced
more recently, which is cited in my recent review [which I can send if
you are interested], I would be interested to hear from you regarding
anyone who has first hand knowledge or documentation that is not commonly
available. Naturally, I am aware of the Nuremberg data but there seems
to be little documentation on those experimented upon, especially polish
Clergy at Dachau. Since I am an amateur historian but full time researcher
in malaria medications I am interested in publicizing the plight of these
unwilling victims that led to the perfection of antimalarial medications
that are now used by millions but unknowingly taken for granted. My suspicion
is that many of them were Russian or Polish nationals. In any event, I
would be interested to hear from you, Kind Regards, Dr Fyaz M. D. Ismail

I would be most grateful
for anyone who has recollections of my father's family in Warsaw, before
World War II. My paternal grandparents were LEON AND RACHEL Bursztejn;
their four children were Izrael (my father), Nison, Anna, and Sara Lena.
They lived on Nowolipki Street, very near a hospital operated by Polish
Protestants, and near a German-owned pharmacy called Siep. My grandfather,
Leon, operated a wholesale food imports business.Nancy Agnew - 7applesatcharter.net

Zahl, Zahle, Sahl, Sahle, Zaal?
years of geneological research has established my European Jewish lineage
is as below. But now we have hit the wall. It is likely records were lost
during the numerous wars between 1805 and 1947. I have contacted a Zahl
still living in Poland, but he has less record than we do & can make no
documented family link. He states the family name has variously been translated
phonetically into english as: Zahl, Zahle, Sahl, Sahle, Zaal, Saal, Zaale
& Saale. Also, how would this family name origionally appear in Hebrew.

names are as follows: My father's name was Kopel Krasowki My mother's

My husband is still
trying to find if any of his family survived the camps. Their names were
Kopel, Zelda, Chana, Cutka, Wolfe,Tola. These were his family names. All
were Krasowski. They lived in Bedzin. We have been told that Chana was

but with no story as to where these pictures were taken. All were sent
out from the ghetto in 1943, except my brother who went to the labour
camp. After my husband was liberated he looked all over the camps in Germany

my great grand father's family was jewish. I am trying to find more informations
about the "Gaillard" family migrating in the island of Haiti.
The only thing so far that i know is that they came from France. The last

but i'm not sure. If you could be of any help, please do contact me at:
Bella Gross Balassa and children, Paul, Rozsie and Klari -
I would like to know
what happened to my great-grandmother, Bella Gross Balassa, and her son,
Paul, and daughters, Rozsie and Klari. Paul was captured by the Gestapo
and never seen again. He helped many Jews escape out of Hungary before
he was captured himself. Bella and her daughters were boarded onto trains
in Budapest to be sent to work camps and never seen again. My great-grandmother
was already elderly by then, and my great-aunts must have been in their
mid to late thirties. As far as I know they were not Jewish, but had dark
hair and eyes which I inherited. I was always told by my Grandfather that
I looked just like my great-grandmother, Bella. My grandfather, Dr.
Leslie (Laszlo) Balassa, who went to Vienna University in the
twenties and earned his degree in Chemistry, had already emigrated to
the U.S., in the early thirties. One little girl of my great uncle, Paul
Balassa, was born in a concentration camp, Klari, and later emigrated
from Budapest to Paris, France, with her prodigy pianist son, my second
cousin, Nicholas Balassa Zsivkov, who we have also now lost contact with
but who I believe is still in France. But I am most concerned about the
fates of my great-grandmother, Bella Gross Balassa, and great Aunts, Rozsie,
and Klari, and what happened to them and if there is any accounting anywhere
as to their fates.Thank you for reading the story of my family and please
contact me if you know of any means for finding out more about what may
have happened to them, through the Hungarian government or otherwise.

Anna Rebincatova - Born in Sanok in Poland - May 26, 1926
I am looking for information about my grandmother's family.
Her name was Anna Rebinçatova, she was born in Sanok in Poland on the
26th of May, 1926. She was deported to a German labour camp either in
1939 or 1940. Following the war, she was transported/rehomed (?) in the
Czech Republic. I have not had any luck as yet with the Polish authorities
in finding a birth certificate at least. According to my mother, my grandmother
was Catholic, but we have no way of verifying this. I have also not been
able to find out when she arrived the Czech Republic. She married Ivan
Lipcej from Lwow. I have not been able to find out anything about her
husband and my mother does not know anything at all. My grandmother was
very reluctant to talk about her past, and told my mother that some things
are best forgotten. I am trying to find out anything I can about my grandmother's
family so I can at least pass something of our family onto my 2 children.
If anyone has any advice or information I would be very grateful.
