My uncle, Mates Konigsberg, married Sara Vogel in June, 1936 in Barsingerhorn, Holland. Mates wa born in Tarnogrod, Poland. Sara was born in Cieszanow, Poland. I traced them to Palestine in August, 1936 on the ship Galil. Could not find any more information. Then, on Yad Vashem, I found Pages of Testimony put up by a Sara Visman. I believe she is my aunt. Any information about Sara Vogel would be helpful. Her parents names. Were they alive? I believe Sara had two brothers in Holland also. Are they mentioned? With much appreciation.

I KNOW THAT MATES KONIGSBERG WAS BORN ON JUNE 17, 1902. There is an error in the first translation.

Herby we come to share and confirm that Mr. Mates Konigsberg was born here meaning in Tarnogrod June 17 1906 to his parents Feivel and Maita Z. Bergeman... he is found in the books of the local Polish records, but the Polish officials don't want to release any proof for him because he deserted the from army services and therefore lost his Polish citizenship.
