About Benjamin Goldberg

Benyamin Goldberg. b. 1876 Mielec. Dealer in feathers. Once lost all his savings, due to bankrupcy of feather marchant in Paris. Then became successful. Travelled often to Russia to bring the raw material (feathers), sold these to local merchants who sorted them for export outside Poland. Lived in the middle of Mielec, not far from father Naftali. The house was made of wood, it had 3 rooms. When the family grew they added a glass closed balcony, which served as a "suka". Behind the house was a small garden with colourful flowers.(In Mielec there were no gardens or loans). Was a Chassidic Jew, yet he allowed his daughters to learn Hebrew. His daughter Chaya wrote that maybe the reason was the Pogroms in Russia and the antisemitism around them. In 1914, in the beginning of WWI, moved with the feathers business to Sceveningen, Holland with the family . Lived in a house with a big orchard.. Before 1928 received from his father $10,000 to expand the business to Berlin. Moved with his family. Lived in Schoenhauser Allee near Alexander Platz. His daughter Margot was born in 1928 in Berlin. Was in the feather business together with his brother David and their children grew up together. Went to the synagogue in Grenadir Strasse. For some reason Benjamin, his second wife and daughter Gerda were sent back to Poland. They returned to Mielec, where they were visited in 1939-1940 by their daughter Miriam. In 1943 the Germans rounded up all the Jews living in the community, locked them in the Synaguge and set the synagogue on fire.

Benjamin was burned alive with his second wife and her daughter together with many other Jews of Mielec, d. 1943.

his children were: Chaya, Miriam, Lea, Shmuel, Reuven, Tilla and Moshe.
