Remembering the Vanished Kehillos



22 Sivan is the Yohrtzeit of my family's hometown in Hungary, Sajoszentpeter, a suburb of Miskolc. A few days earlier the Nazis rounded up the Jews and deported them all to Auschwitz. My choshu've grandmother, a"h, would fast that day till the end of her life, and she lost only siblings, not even her parents! Her parents had passed away years before and she was raised by an older Sister, Malka, hy"D. This picture shows the wedding of my grandmothers' parents, Moshe and Tzipporah Glick, in Sajosentpeter, in 1902. I don't know who the distinguished looking man in the center is, I wish I did. Most of these people probably never made it out of Auschwitz either, although I know some who did, and even one who only recently died.

Are the people from Klimowitz Satmarer chassidm ?

Hirshel Tzig said...

Schneur is one of the "Lubavitch for White Russians Only" group....

Schneur what's wrong with East Ukraine and Lita? Are they not Lubavitch enough . . . :-)

"Schneur is one of the "Lubavitch for White Russians Only" group...."
Now that's an absolutely marvellous idea- seeing as how no other ethnic group within the Jewish community has managed to single-handedly create so much damage, I also think that Rooskies should be quarantined in a sect like Lubavitch, who have little to no connection with the general orthodox community.
In that spirit I'll have to agree with 'mottel': we don't need Ukrainians or, most of all, Litwankers either.

This is the Tzig's father. I was born in "Szentpeter" or Sempeter as my mother a"h would call it. There were those who would deliberately mispronounce the names of the cities. I am very interested to know who you and your families are. Although I left as a small child I do know some of the remaining people from there.

Trying to trace the Sender family. Two sisters married two Wiezner brothers from Szentpeter. What's interesting is that the the Sender girls mother is a Glick, and they are related somehow to R' Gedalia Glick Zt"l.
Does anyone know anything about this?
Thanks

Just saw this request by the Tzig's father. We are einiklach of the Gruenfeld family- Rabbi Moshe Yehuda Gruenfeld from Rimasecz Slovakia (or something similar). My Bobbe Klein ob"m was a Gruenfeld and her brother R' Moshe Chaim b'R' Yehoshua Zelig was a famous poisek.

My grandmother was a cousin to the Wiesners

one of the children in the wedding picture is a Wiesner who passed away probably as late as 2002. Bela Wiesner (male)

Now I hear that Reb Gedalia Glick may be a zeide.
