About Shoshana Rose Goldberg

Shoshana Rose Nussbaum Goldberg, b. Mielec ~1900. She was a few years older than Karl (and the friend of Chaya Kireshenbaum, born 1897). Was the daughter of the well-known Rav Nissan Nusselbaum. He was a fanatic and Ruth heard that he used to put beans in his shoes to suffer. She was the friend of Chaya Goldberg (later Kirschenbaum) She and her sisters Malka and Sara, and her friend Chaya, studied Hebrew in secret. First she learned Hebrew with her friend Reisel Friedman from Volkovsky's letters, and for fear of her father kept the letters on her body. They were careful when they prepared their homework. When their father the Rabbi, who was opposed to the zionist idea, found out he was angry, burned her copybooks and ordered her to marry a "yeshiva bucher". Her brothers did not go to school, but learned Torah from a yeshiva bucher. He also taught them secular studies. Chaya Goldberg Kirshenbaum joined Rosa-Shoshana and Reizel. At that time, while the boys learned Torah, the girls were sent to secondary schools and learned modern literature.

At the age of 16, about the middle of the war, after her mother had died and her father married a second wife, Shoshana took her mother's jewels and ran off to Vienna together with her sisters to their relatives, the Strom family. It is possible that they stayed at their aunt. Malka, her sister was a member of the Shomer Hazair, maybe Shoshana was a member too. Malka and Sarah later returned to their family. Malka learned agriculture and immigrated to Israel in ~1924 with a certificate of an agronom (she had been to the “hachshara” in Stochova camp). She settled in kibbutz Genigar.After the WWI. Shoshana stayed in the famous "communa" in Vienna with Meir Yaari and Dolek Horowitz. In 1919 Shoshana immigrated to Israel (her sisters arrived later) she was maybe in kibbutz Kineret, where she helped build a road. (Bitanyia?) Chaya mentions in her booklet that "the sisters Rosa and Sarah Nussboim immigrated to Israel, and that they were the first immigrants from Mielec to Israel". In 1922 she graduated the first class of nurses in Hadassa and was sent to Kibbutz Deganya A. (Malka Eliav has her photo at the graduation). In early 1923 she was attacked by an Arab near Deganya. The Arab was caught and put in prison. He escaped and was recaptured. His trial took place in 23 Octover 1923. In the trial she shot him and killed him with a gun. She was "smuggled" to Germany and joined her family in Berlin. There she met her husband Karl. When Hitler's influence grew she decided to make alyia, "with or without her husband". (1933) But he was finally convinced to join her. They came with a certificate sent by sister Sarah.They had a flat near Dizzengoff Square, not far from David and Sara.Shoshana immigrated as a newcomer and was now called Shoshana Goldberg, so no connection was made between her and Rosa Nussbaum. Shoshana used to visit Chaya Kirshenbaum every Saturday. She was a chain-smoker, but did not smole at Chaya's. In Israel she was a captain in the army and opened clinics, then a senior nurse in Kupat Cholim. She was also head nurse at the port authority of Tel-Aviv (1936-1939), then went back to work in Kupaat Cholim. She died in her 60's in 1963. This story was revealed to the family in Malka Carmieli's funeral in Genigar by a woman from Deganya.(or by a woman from Genigar bamed Bracha). Malka's son Micha Carmieli lived in Genigar.They said that the story was told by the journalist Uri Keissari in a newspaper that was published for a few years. (1926?)
