Bukachevtsy Residents in the Holocaust

Bukachevtsy Natives who lived in Germany

Below you will find two lists of people born in Bukachevtsy who moved to Germany.  While we do not know the fates of all of them, we assume that they perished in the Holocaust.

Liste der jüdischen Einwohner in Deutschland im Zeitraum von 1933 bis 1945 (translates to List of Jewish Residents in Germany from 1933 to 1945

The following people, born in Bukachevtsy, are listed as residents of Germany from 1933 to 1945 on this list which was compiled by the Bundesarchiv (German Federal Archives). The list was presented to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC in February, 2009.

From a press release of the USHMM:

The list was compiled by the foundation “Remembrance, Responsibility, and Future” and the German Federal Archives. It contains information on the approximately 600,000 Jewish citizens in Germany when the Nazi Party came to power. It is the only such list available in North America and will be accessible through the Museum’s archives.

The list makes it possible for the first time to gain a nearly complete overview of the Jewish population in Germany before the Holocaust and is an important document for reconstructing Jewish history in Germany. The list was compiled in cooperation with the German Federal Archives and with the financial support of the German government

We do not know the certain fate of most of these Bukachevtsy natives.  But we have Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony for two.  Chuno Grosnas, son of Wolf Leib and Rosa, was married to Sheindel, lived in Lamberg, Westphalia, Germany (south of Hamburg) before the war and perished in Poland in 1942.  Nechemia Weissmann, son of Yehoshua and Leah, was married to Sheindel Heller, lived in Hamburg before the war and perished in Auschwitz.

The Gedenkbuch is a memorial or yiskor book for the Jews of Germany, listing almost 150,000 people.  For each victim, the book cites the last known place of residence in Germany, the birth date, the death date (if known) and circumstances of death.  

Zbaszyn, now known as Bentschen,  was a German-Polish border town.  In 1938 Germany deported over 17,000 Polish Jews to Zbaszyn but the Poles refused to allow them entry.  They stayed there in deplorable conditions for many months till the Polish government allowed them to enter the country.  There is more information on Bentschen on a site hosted by Yad Vashem and one hosted by HEART (Holocaust Education & Archive Research Team).

German Minority Census, 1939

Tracing the Past, a non-profit organization dedicated to the research and memorialization of the Holocaust, has put a searchable version of the German Minority Census on-line.  There is a great deal of useful information on those Bukachevtsy people who lived in Germany in 1939.

The German government conducted a census in May 1939 (including annexed Austria and the Sudetenland) that required the head of each household to fill out a card which indicated the Jewish background of each of the resident's four grandparents. By 1942, the cards of households with one or more residents with a Jewish grandparent marked on their card, the so-called "Minority Census," were collected and and sent to the Reich Genealogy Office.

By the 1990s the cards were in the custody of the German Federal Archives. The cards are about 87% complete, lacking only for Thüringen, the Rhine Province, the districts of Erfurt and Minden, and several districts of Bavaria. Many of the districts included are areas that are now part of Poland (such as Silesia and Pomerania) and Russia (Königsberg / Kaliningrad).

Microfilm copies of of the supplementary cards of the German "Minority Census" of 1939 are publicly available in the United States at the Family History Library of Salt Lake City, Utah; the Leo Baeck Institute in New York and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC; and a copy of the census is in Israel at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

The database contains the names of all of the people who lived in the household where one or more people had at least one Jewish grandparent. This means that there are also a number of non-Jewish individuals in the database, making it source material for finding more biographical information on non-Jewish spouses.

Of the approximately 410,000 original entries, about 275,000 (or around 67%) of the "Minority Census" are available online, searchable by family name, first name, maiden name if applicable, birth date, birth place, street address and city.

Le Mémorial de la Déportation des Juifs de France


The information below is from an online database of the "Memorial to the Jews Deported from France", available at https://stevemorse.org/france .  This valuable search engine provides access to information on the fate of the 78,000 Jews who were either deported from France or who died in camps in France under the Nazi occupation and the Vichy regime.  A search on Bukaczowce gave us this sad information.
