I just can't believe this..., but I'm almost sure that this man is my grandfather's brother. I'm from Uruguay, and my grandfather, Yudelis Krut Yakubson, came here in 1928. I've always wanted to know about our family in Dusetos, but I knew it was a sad story for him to remember, so I didn't insist on that too much. But, before dying, my grandpha left me some info about his father, Abram Sabsi Krutas; his mother, Yenta Yakubson; his sister, Susana Krut; and his brother, Isaac Krut. That were the names he gave to me... This is very important to me, because I would love to know more about my family in Lithuania, or whereever survivors could be. Do you think you can help me with that? I have some pics that my granpha took to Uruguay, and something their family wrote him in 1929, when he was here. And comparing one of my pics, and this one, I can say that this man is MY FAMILY! Thank you so much for your attention. Hug.

In memory of Frida Kligman: Thanks for the photo. The woman that raised my Baba(her step mother) was living in in Novo Selitzia, Bessarabia prior to the war. My Baba died when I was 2 years old. I inherited a photo of her step mother but knew nothing else of her other then the photo and documents indicating she was living in Novo Selitzia before the war . Then I found her name on a list of victims of the Holocaust that perished during the war. The records indicate that she was deported from Novo Selitzia to Transinistra and through the Jewishgen web site I learned that the residents of Novo Selitizia that survived the initial murders were all sent to Secureni. Thousands were killed in Secureni and others buried alive. Only 200 of the of the original 3,000 plus Jews of Novo Selitzia returned after the war. I think this photo gives me a little piece of closure to the story of the woman who raised my Baba.

In 1938, with the prospects of war likely, the family of Isaac Mokotow was already in Palestine. Isaac and his daughter Bronka went back to Przedecz, Poland, to sell their family business. The mother and son remained in Palestine. The war started in September, 1939, and Isaac and Bronka could not escape. They eventually went to the Warsaw ghetto where they were united with Isaac's other daughter, Bluma, her husband Heniek and their child Galila. Whiie in the ghetto, Bronka befriended a Christian boy who was willing to smuggle her out of the ghetto. She refused to abandon her father. All perished in the Holocaust, most likely at Treblinka. Much of this story is documented in the Przedecz yizkor book written by the son, Moshe Mokotow.
