About Marcus Lazer Kreinik

Ida Kreinik Friedlander reports: My dad Marcus was also from Sendishove (phonetic of Sędziszów) in Southern Poland. He was born around 1915. He was rounded up by the Nazi's and put on a train to concentration camp. He escaped and made it to Russia where he was exiled to Siberia. (After he served time in a Russian prison for lack of proper papers [escape from Nazi's in Poland without passport].) There he met and married a Russian national from Leningrad by the name of Irena who had been a nurse during the siege of Leningrad. My sister Helena and I were born in Siberia in 1944 and 46 respectively. We left Russia when I was 3 months old and returned to Poland but they again began to kill Jews so we again escaped this time to Sweden. My father had 3 brothers Morris and Manny who came to New York before the Germans invaded Poland. He also had another brother named Joseph who survived in Poland by hiding in the woods and serving with the resistance. He later went to Toronto Canada. My father also had a sister I believe who was named Helena. Hopefully this information will strike a responsive chord and will help identify some of our missing relatives.====== MARCUS KREINIK 127-28-6061 May 14, 1913 May 1, 1971 57 years Read more: http://www.faqs.org/people-search/kreinik/#ixzz2JfPerZjU

Ruth Kreinik, Feb 2013: "OK, here's my story:
I'm not sure of the date but it was some time in the mid-1990's, during the tenure of Mayor Giuliani. He had organized a commemoration (of what, I don't recall) at Ellis Island and had his staff scout around the city for people who came here through Ellis Island during a particular time period. My mother was one of four people chosen to attend the event at Ellis Island and be on a panel (the Mayor's office arranged for them to be picked up and returned home by limousines, she was so excited). Two men and two women (Lillian one of them) on the panel were asked just to tell a little bit about their lives and also coming over from the Old Country. Unfortunately I couldn't take the time off from work and Herb & Betty didn't make the trip from wherever they were living at the time.

Anyway, the event made the local New York City news and also an article in the Daily News (I no longer have the article and photo). A few weeks later I was visiting Lillian in Brighton Beach when she showed me that she had received a package in the mail that day. Together we opened it to find a note and a gift from the second woman on the panel who turned out to be Judith Lieber, the very successful handbag designer. In the short time they were together Mrs. Lieber decided she liked my mom and sent her a lovely note along with a stunning evening bag that my mother promptly gave to me. It was such a wonderful show of generosity by Mrs. Lieber for no reason at all.

It's too bad I no longer have the news article. I did Google the event recently but didn't come up with anything."

Art Friedlander, Feb 2013: "Dear David : Ida reminds me that I actually filled out an application to list Ida's family at the Ellis Island Memorial even though they came to the USA via airplane [you sent us the manefest]. We have never seen the listing and are not sure that it is the same one that you refer to in this email. .... Dear David ; On the second try we were able to open the Ellis Island photo and assume the name on plaque results from our efforts a number of years ago. I cannot tell you how much this means to us for we had not seen it before."
