Chapter VIII

Krosner Jews in the World

Many Krosner Jews reached the German and Austrian D.P. camps in the American zones of occupation. They formed small cells of former natives of Krosno and vicinity. They memorialized the day of the Krosno selection and comforted each other through this difficult period in their lives. Most of them wanted to go to Palestine but the British would not let them go there. Some wanted to go to the USA but the doors were closed. So the refugees sat in the D.P, hoping to leave Germany and Austria. Many of them joined the illegal ships like the “Exodus” and tried to reach the shores of Palestine.

The American landesmanschft of Krosno–Jedlicz was very active on behalf of the Krosner Jews who were locked in the D.P.camps. They organized financial aid, food packages and medical supplies for the Krosner and Jedliczer Jewish refugees.

 

Krosno– Korczyna Landesmanschaften in the Holy Land

The Krosno– Korczyna society was also active on behalf of their landsman. They helped the needy refugees that came to the country. They also provided guidance and help to the newcomers to the country. The Palestinian organization worked closely with the American office in coordinating some assistance projects. There were other former Krosner cells in the free world. All of these groups kept in touch with each other and tried to provide some help to the needy Jews of Krosno.

Below is a list of members that the late Baruch Munz, a native of Krosno, secretary of the Israeli landesmanschaft provided us with.

Names of Jewish survivors who signed up for membership in the Krosno–Jedlicz society in Israel following WWII. The list also includes Jews from Korczyna and the surrounding area. Baruch Munz who was the secretary of the society was kind enough to provide us with the list of members. The names were written in Yiddish letters that makes it difficult to transfer them to the Latin alphabet. Please excuse any misspellings or distortions of the names. The list does not record Krosno survivors in Israel who were not members of the society.

The list does not differentiate between Jews of Krosno who came before the war to Palestine and those that survived the Shoah or were in the Soviet Union during the war.

Letter to the members of the Krosno–Korczyna society in Israel

 

The association held annual memorial services for the Krosno-Korczyner Jews who were murdered in Belzec, Szebnie and Auschwitz–Birkenau. Social gatherings were also held. As the membership aged and members passed away, the association slowly came to a halt. Above is one of the last letters to the members of the society in Hebrew.

The letter addressed to the members of the Krosno–Korczyna society states that there would be a memorial meeting on Monday, December 19, 1977 at 6 P.M. at the “Shaltiel” hall, 82 Levinski Street in Tel Aviv, near the central bus station.

The members are asked to inform their friends of the meeting. The hall would be open at 5.P.M.

At the memorial meeting, we would decide whether to continue the annual memorial meetings. If you would not be able to attend the meeting please notify us as soon as possible. Baruch Munz, Ramat Gan. 63 Orlozoroff Street or call 03–738987

The memorial service was held on the 10 day of the month of Tevet that corresponds to December 19 in 1942. This day is referred to in Israel as the “Kaddish Day.” The Rabbinat of Israel has set this date to say the kaddish for the Shoah victims since we do not know exactly which day they perished. We do not know exactly when most of the Krosner Jews were murdered, so the memorial ceremony was held on the 10th day of the month of Tevet.

One of the projects that the society began was to ask all the members of the association to submit family names of those that perished in the Shoah. Some families complied and presented the names. Many others failed to reply or replied incomplete answers. Below is one of the better listings of the members that perished.
