About Rabbi Chaim Nachman Biszkowicz

בישקוביץ, חיים נחמן Rabbi Chaim Nachman Biszkowicz. He was Bialystok's government appointed rabbi, was a Yeshiva teacher, and held Jewish religious services. Most of the family were taken by the Russians to Siberia during WWII, where he died in old age March 14, 1943 and was buried in Altajskoje, Altai Krai, Russia. He became vegetarian in Siberia because the meat was not kosher. He wrote books in Hebrew.

There are variations seen to his name in records including in the Russian record as Bishkovitz, Ḥayim Naḥman Bishḳoṿits. He is also referred to as Chaim Nachman ben Jankiel Gersh since his father was Rabbi Ya'akov Zwi "Jankiel Girsz" Hacohen Biszkowicz. In Hebrew his name is seen as ביסקוביץ ' (Biskovich), ביסקוביץ (Biskowitz). He also used Nachman Biszkowicz without the Chaim and from Polish Nachmana Hakohena z Byszkowicz, rabina and his signature Z Rabin Ch. N. Biszkowicz.

NOTE: Chaim Nachman Ben-Yaakov Zvi Hacohen Biskovic Although there is a record showing he was born in Stawisko, I believe that is a typographical error. All his siblings were born in Stawiski and his mother was from there. His birth is shown here as Stawiski. NOTE: Yad Vashem has a mistaken report from a neighbor that Rabbi Chaim Nachman died in Bialystok. They had been taken at night by train to Siberia. This is incorrect - http://jew.gendrevo.ru/v.php?id=341250
