I am searching for information on any of my relatives who may have survived the Shoah. I am also interested in knowing how and where they perished in the Holocaust.

My parents, of blessed memory were both survivors of the Holocaust.

My mother, Rachel Rosenberg, maiden name Frankel, came from Slomnicki, a town near Cracow. She was born May 5, 1914. Her parents, Jacob and Bluma Frankel owned a leather factory in Cracow. They had four other children: Frimit, Chana, Chaim and Alter. They were all married and presumably some had children. Rachel was originally sent to the Nazi factory, Plassau/Krakowa and liberated from the work camp, Skazyskokarmiene Werk C. No information was ever found on what happened to the members of her family. She was the only known survivor.
My father, Jacob Rosenberg, was born September 14, 1910. His family lived in the town of Wrozdislaw, Poland. His parents were Berish and Feigel Miriam. Berish was married twice. His first wife was Malka Szlanski and they had two children : Rivka (Regina) and David. Regina, (my father’s stepsister), survived with her daughter Maria and son in law Fred Devinki. Berish and Feigel Miriam, his second wife, had four children: my father, Jacob, and his siblings Hinda, Bluma and Yehudit. My father, Jacob, was married before the war. His first wife and two children died in the Holocaust. We have no information about anyone in his family. It is known that the Jews of Wrozdislaw were sent to Treblinka. A few remaining Jews were sent to Sandomierz. My father was in Auschwitz.

My parents married in Regensberg, Germany after the war and I was born in a DP camp. Eventually they joined the only known survivor, my father stepsister, Regina Braun in Kansas City, Missouri.

Please send any information to: Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
