Ciechanowers in Paris and Surroundings (cont.)

Activities of the Ciechanow Landsmanshaft in Paris in the light of announcements in the local press

The following announcements that were published in the Parisian Jewish newspapers reflect the activities of the Parisian landsmanshaftn.

Society of Ciechanow Landsleit

Because of the situation that has recently arisen on account of the steady influx of our surviving-refugee landsleit, it has been decided to form a society in Paris, “Friends of Ciechanow And Its Surroundings,” where all landsleit will be able to feel at home and will be able to benefit from direction and mutual help. At the last general meeting that took place September 28, in the presence of all Ciechanowers and the surrounding area, such as: Mlawa, Proshnitz, Makow, Schegova and Plonsk. After a friendly exchange of ideas the following were elected as a committee: President - Yosl Mlotzker; vice-president - Henekh Perlmutter; secretary -- Laibl Rosenblum; treasurer -- Yitzhak Kleinetz; auditors: Moishe Weinstock, Madame Faige Asherman, and Traister. All those interested in joining our Society can call for information to friend Mlotzker, 14 rue Martel, evenings from 8 to 10.

October 3, 1946

Attention, Ciechanowers!

In order to express our rage at the renewal of racism, particularly the pogroms on Jews in Iraq, and in order to express our desire for peace, we invite all Ciechanowers to participate in a protest meeting today, Monday, in “Mityalita.”

The Society “Friends of Ciechanow and Surroundings and Yiddish Mutual Aid

Bernard Coopershmid

This past Sunday we, “Friends of Ciechanow And surroundings,” and “Yiddish Mutual Aid” met in the Jewish cemetery Bania, where a monument was erected on the grave of the young hero, Bernard Coopershmid who, at the age of 20, was shot to death by the Germans on May 25, 1944 in the deportation from Ordesh.

A large crowd responded to both announcements.

First, friend Zilberman spoke as president of the Society “Yiddish Mutual Aid.” He was followed by M. Mlotzker, president of the “Society of Ciechanowers and Surroundings.” He reminded us of the cause for which the young Bernard had given his life, and called upon those assembled to unite against the new dangers that hang over us.

Finally friend Yitzhak Kleinitz spoke, making a strong appeal, saying that one of the ways of honoring the memory of young Bernard is to provide for the surviving children of deported and murdered Jews.

On the spot there was collected, in the name of both societies, 8,280 francs for the summer camps of the Central Children's Commission.
