Lost in the Shoah
A listing of those who were deported to Treblinka and sacrificed to the hatred of the Nazi destroyers and their sympathizers.
Because the list was compiled mostly in German, I've kept their orthography to keep a sense of what the names sounded like to the Germans.
Third son of Rabbi Elias Cassorla. Presumed to have perished in the Shoah with all his descendants.
An entry (#1784) in the deportation register of 1943 appears to be of his family.
[Rabbi] Schelomo Elijau - m. Miriam
He was born Aug 10 1879ce; she Dec 10 1901ce.
Also captured at the same time, at their Monastir address Herzegovacka 42, the following offspring:
- David, b. Aug 27 1917ce
- Mois, b. May 20 1921ce
- Donna, b. Dec 5 1923ce
- Jakov, b. Jun 27 1927ce -- a tailor
- Avram, b. Jun 25 1929ce
- Rebekka, b. Apr 20 1934ce
- Haim, b. Mar 16 1936ce
- Wida, b. Sep 17 1940ce
- *Sol - m. *[??] Toledano
The second child of Haham Bohor Haim, Sol and her family are presumed to have perished at the hands of the Nazis.
Although one piece of family lore has it that Sol and her family lived in Skopje, and may have emigrated to Palestine from there, it is possible that she may not have gotten out in time--if her husband went ahead.
Her husband's family name was Toledano or Todelano; they lived in his hometown, Skopje.
The deportation rolls of 1943 from Skopje contain no Toledanos, but quite a few Todelanos, including this possible reference to her. (#6516)A certain Sol (b. March 1, 1906ce), wife of Juda--a seamstress--living with her three children at Str. 118, Nr. 24 among the household of her brother-in-law David Isak Todelano
- Isak (b. Nov 13, 1928ce),
It's known that at the time the family left Monastir, in 1930ce, Sol had a son.
- Stella (b. Jan 23, 1931ce)
- Jakov (b. April 4,1934ce)
Sol and her children were arrested along with David's entire family (mother, wife and children), and all were deported together.
- Schua Mosche (Yeshua ben Moshe) - m. Dona
Believed to be the father of Rabbi Mo´se Cassorla, later of Paris, France.
Listed as #1794, arrested at their home, Zar Krum 12 Yeshua, his wife and four children.
Yeshua is listed as having been born in 1879ce, and Dona in 1887ce. Thus they would have been about 64 and 56 years old, respectively at the time of their arrest and deportation.
- Dschak born 1919ce.
It's hard to tell what this name might have been. It could be a German or Bulgarian soldier's attempt to write a French name like Jacques. It was pretty common for educated jews in Monastir at that time to identify strongly with French, if they had been educated at the Alliance.
- Avram born 1922ce. Listed as a tailor.
- Josef born 1925ce. Listed as a tailor.
- Isak born 1927ce. Listed as a "flicker".
Oddly, Isak is listed as "Isak Josef" (Isak ben Yosef), as though he belonged to a different family, and was perhaps only living with this family
