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.

188. 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 Medicinal Chemistry Research Group, School of Pharmacy & Biomolecular sciences. Liverpool John Moores University, Byrom Street, Liverpool L3 3AF, United Kingdom, Europe. fyaz.ismail at

The last time I heard they were in Bedzin until 1943 in the ghetto. There names are as follows: My father's name was Kopel Krasowki My mother's name was Zelda My sister's name was Chana Krasowski and she had a son 2 or 3 years old whose name was Moniak.

My brother's name was Wolf Krasowski and was taken away to the slave labour camps in 1940 or 1941.

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 the last to leave from the ghetto. She had a young son by the name of Moishe. We were mailed a picture of my sister Chana and a cousin Rachel, 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 and went to Poland in search, but had to escape because there was a progom in Kelce in 1946.

176. Bella Gross Balassa and children, Paul, Rozsie and Klari - Hungary
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. Alicia Balassa-Clark Vancouver, WA

175. 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.
