I first emailed info@... about 3 weeks ago, I was beginning to give up hope
that they would ever reply.
I don't really know how to search Memorial.
I will post their names
Rosa Hecht (geb. Bernstein)
Proskurov (Nikolayev) Russia
I found a Rosa Hecht on Karta born 1919, but I dont think this is her. Its
possible but I'm not sure. She was from Proskurov region and from what I
understand she was picked up by the Soviets as she was fleaing her town and sent
to Frunze(Bitschika). On Karta is says Bialystok. I doubt she would be that far
My Grandfather was on a kolkhoz also near Frunze from 1939-1940
Then he was transferred and he was working on an Electricity plant, I'm assuming
a Largy (they refereed to it as a Lager)
My Grandmother was also sent to the same "Lager" where they met. I just found a
date on a Canadian gov't document that says they were married June 8th 1945 in
I have a picture taken in the "Lager" it says "Frunze 1944" on the back. I will
try to post it here.
I also have many documents (in German, which I can't read) that describes their
experience during the war, I can email it to anyone who is interested in seeing
The address is:
Informatsionniy Center MVD Kirghizskoy Respubliki
Ulitsa Frunze, 469

It's simply the Russian name for a state-owned farm.
Dan, Right away may I say that yours is not our usual search story. Your family were in USSR in 1939 ; in reality your forefathers were likely to have beenMessage 3 of 6 , Mar 1, 2011View SourceDan,
Right away may I say that yours is not our usual search story.
Your family were in USSR in 1939 ; in reality your forefathers were likely to have been there post the W W 1 and not deported like many of our members. Many Hecht families in Memorial seem to suggest that.
I would say that anything you find in Karta records is unlikely to refer to your family; perhaps some??
The region where your father worked had many families settled there, who originally came from Germany or western Poland.
I am not even sure that 'Lager' term applied to them in its true meaning; althogh there was Podgorlag in Frunze -Gulag MWD, but it was later in 1949 - 53 period and after that to some extent.
Yes, it is intersting and I would like to receive copies of notes in German to look at. Purely accademic and for any future reference .
