About Mara (Miriam) Blecher

Mara Blekher [b. c. 1938] was born to Shlema. She was a child. Prior to WWII she lived in Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine (USSR). During the war she was in Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine (USSR). Mara was murdered in Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine (USSR) at the age of 4. This information is based on a List of persecuted persons found in List of murdered from Dzerzhinsk, 1941-1943. (image 642)

Elias (the Fetter) Blejer gave testimony that Leib had three "kinder," and Mara is a fourth, but since she was born in the late 1930s, I assume that correspondence between the Blejer family in Cordoba, Argentina and their family in Romanov, Ukraine was getting difficult.

The Dzerzhinsk massacre occurs in 1941 and I assume the majority of the Blekher/Blecher/Blejer family perished then. The names of the men do not occur on the list of murdered, only the women and children. I presume that the men, if not serving in the army, were murdered separately.
