Message to GombinSIG 13.5.03
Searching LUSZINSKI from Gombin, Poland
Following the broadcast in the Israeli TV of Minna's film "Back to Gombin", I received also a letter from Ziva Midan from Kibbutz Maagan Michael, whose late father was Shmuel Lushinski. He immigrated to Eretz Israel in 1929 and was a Khalutz in "Solel Bone" and later settled in Petach Tikva.
He was in the Gombin Committee in Israel and Ziva remembers many Holocaust survivors coming to their house often. She has a package of old photographs, most of them of unknown faces... Her grandfather was Sender Luszinski and her grandmother name was Yehudit Lea. She remembers her father Szmuel z"l was told by survivors that all his 3 brothers and one spouse and a daughter were murdered in the beginning of the occupation in ghetto Gombin.
She knows one cousin, Rutka, daughter of the eldest son, studied in Belgium and survived the war. Ziva is trying to locate her with the help of the Jewish Agency. Do you know of any ex Gombiner in that country? She later married and had a daughter name Nadine. The family lost contact in the early 50s.
Ziva ends her letter in what so many many of you experienced: "I now often ask my self WHY DIDN'T I ASK AND INQUIRED MY PARENTS MORE WHEN THEY WERE ALIVE???
Ishall give her Josef Lushinski's details, as she didn't know about him until she read my letter about the film "Back to Gombin" and that he is filmed in that movie. May be they are related.
Ialso attach herewith the genealogical data found in the Old Registry Book of Gombin, known as AKT 454.
Thank you for any information,
