Eternal Lights

A Memorial for the Souls Of Our Neighbors and Those we Remember

(Yizkor box section)

{642}

Yizkor – May we remember
The natives of Zgierz – men, women, and children who were tortured and murdered in sanctification of the Name of G-d by the German enemy and their assistants, may their names be blotted out.

May G-d remember them for good, may their souls be bound in the bonds of life, may their eternal response be under the wings of the Divine Presence with all of the holy martyrs of Israel.


For the Avenger of blood will remember them, and He will not forget the cries of the oppressed [1] .

With deep feeling, we memorialize all of the Jews of Zgierz who were cut off along with their families, without leaving anyone to remember and perpetuate their names.


{643}

In glorious memory of our teacher and rabbi
Rabbi Shlomo Yehuda Leib HaCohen of holy blessed memory, the head of the rabbinical court of Zgierz, the son of the pious Gaon Rabbi Shalom Tzvi HaCohen of blessed memory. He died in the holocaust in the year 5702.

Mrs. Feiga Berliner of blessed memory

{photo}
Feiga Berliner of blessed memory, born on the 4 th of Av 5655 (1895), died on 24 Adar I, 5719 (1959)

Fifteen years have passed from the bitter day when our dear mother Feiga of blessed memory was taken so suddenly from us. She was the wife of Rabbi Aharon David Berliner may he live long.

        When we asked our mother to rest a bit from her journey, she would say that after 120 years, it would be possible to rest; however as long as man lives on earth, he has to toil and toil, whether it be in the doing of good deeds or in other matters that the Torah commands us, with our bodies or our money.

        She would always find a “downtrodden widow” whom she could comfort and assist.

        She learned her manner of education from her father, Rabbi Binyamin Sczaranski, and from her renowned Hassidic grandfather Rabbi Nota Heisdorf of holy blessed memory, as well as from her mother-in-law the Rebbetzin of Janow of blessed memory.

        She not only succeeded in educating children, but also in educating adults. She arranged “Sabbath celebrations” for the adults. Every Sabbath, she would invite important men and women to lecture to the women about matters of Judaism, the Sabbath, etc.

        She lived with a good name, and died with a good name.

        May her memory be blessed, and may she intercede for the good for her family and the entire house of Israel.

        May her soul be bound in the bonds of everlasting life.

Perpetuated by her husband Aharon David Berliner
Her daughters Chava Stein and Hadasa Orstein

The Gornicki family – Reizel and Yosef, and their children Rivka, Asher, Paula, and Ruth.

        After the Germans captured our city, my father, sister Rivka, and brother Asher fled to Russia. After great suffering, they arrived in the city of Brisk on the Bog River. After a short period, they were exiled to Siberia, where the worked in the forests. My sister Ruth, my mother and myself remained in Zgierz. After some time, the Germans separated us. My mother and sister were expelled from the city. I succeeded in returning to Zgierz, however only for a very short period.

At the same time, the Cohen family was together with me (they were related to the Wachs family, the dentist), Tonia, Genia, and their elderly mother. We became quite close. They received small packets from Leon Cohen of France. The Cohen mother never forgot to give me something to taste.

        One day, Tonia took ill, and the situation became serious. I and another Jewish girl went to a German doctor who lived in the new houses outside of the city. We requested that he come to the sick person, whose brother in France is also a doctor. He refused and said: “Let her die!” Tonia died the next day, holding in her hand a sugar cube that her brother had sent from France. Her last word was “Leon?”

        My mother and sister spent some time with a Christian woman in some village, however my mother was captured by the Germans. My sister received an identity paper from Polish friends. It had the name of Janina Dominiak. She looked like a Pole, and succeeded in spending some time with a Christian women in the town of Kaliska. One day, she went to visit some of her friends in the ghetto. There the Germans captured her. I know this from the testimony of a Jew whom I met by chance after the war.

        The expelled me from Zgierz to Lodz. There I worked in a laundromat. When the ghetto was liquidated, the sent me in a transport to Auschwitz, then to Freiburg, and finally to Mauthausen. I was liberated in May 1945, and after a difficult illness, I traveled to Poland.

        In the interim, my sister, brother, and father returned from Russia. We felt that there was not our place. We traveled to Germany, and from there we all made our way to the Land of Israel.

        My brother Asher came to Israel as a foreign army enlistee (Gachal). He fell in the War of Independence at Ein Shemer.

Tova Bliman Honigstock of blessed memory

        The first days of 1939 already caused deep pain for the Honigstock family. Roza Honigstock, the mother of four daughters Yente, Paula, Tova and Rivka, died at age 46. The father Ber took full responsibility for the education of his two young daughters, Tova (14 years old) and Rivka (12 years old). The family had not even had a chance to recover from the tragedy of the loss of their mother when the Second World War broke out, which separated the family. Ber Honigstock fled to Lodz with Paula, Tova and Rivka. Yenta fled eastward to Russia.

        The Honigstock family lived in inhuman conditions in the Lodz ghetto. The father and Paula worked in a leather factory, Tova in shoe workshop, and Rivka took care of the home. In August 1944, when the ghetto was liquidated by the German murderers, the Honigstock family was sent to Auschwitz. Only Tova survived this death camp. After many tribulations, she was liberated from Auschwitz in May 1945. She returned to Zgierz along with other survivors, hoping for a miracle – to meet members of her family. Perhaps there would be signs of life from Yenta from far-off, freezing Siberia, as well as Paula and Rivka. However there were only false hopes. Life continued on, and one had to prepare for the future.

        Tova married Leopold Bliman in November, 1945. Even after founding her own family, she did not cut off her connection with the Zgierz natives. In particular, she kept in touch with the Fogel, Ber, Feldon, Freistadt, and Rotafel families.

        She made aliya to Israel in 1957 with her husband and two children. There were the usual difficulties of acclimatizing, however there was the hope in the heart that everything would work out. Indeed, by the beginning of the 1970s, things were looking positive toward a good future. The son finished his engineering studies, and the daughter was studying in high school. However, a sudden illness overtook her, and on December 3, 1971 (15 Kislev 5732), our dear Tova went to her eternal rest, leaving behind pain and agony in the family, who loved and respected her so much.

        The last remnant of the Honigstock family passed on.

        May her memory be blessed!

Perpetuated by her husband Leopold Bliman, son Dov of blessed memory, and daughter Irit
