Polish Telephone Book - 1938

 

Bukachevtsy descendant Tomasz Kizny shares some comments, in his own words, on some of the listings in the telephone directory:

The names in the page of telephone book concerning Bukaczowce sound very familiar to me. 

Jan Cienski was a starost (community leader or elder) of Polish regional gentry; a little bit eccentric, living in a manor house in Chakhrov and possessing 600 hectares grounds.  

Henryk Landau was a land owner with an estate of 1000 hectares and a distillery in Sloboda Bukaczowiecka on the other side of Swirz river. He was a sort of magnate on the regional scale. Landau was married with a Lviv banker's daughter, an educated elegant woman. Their daughter was disabled by Heine-Medina (polio). Landau’s wife and daughter were deported to Kazakhstan with grandmother Helena and uncle Zygmunt (Tomasz's family). For some period of time they lived together in the same kolkhoz (collective farm). Afterwards they moved to Temir city (in Kazahstan) where both of them died of starvation.



Ruins of the Landau Distillery



The next name in the telephone list Mr. Jan Waligσrski – wow! He was renting an apartment on the first floor of the house of my grandparents and indeed, in his memories Uncle Zygmunt mentioned that he had a telephone at home, a great luxury in Bukaczowce, and of course an attraction for children. Mr. Waligσrski was a mayor of Bukaczowce. He was medium high, thin, with a small beard. He appeared to be unhappy all the time. His wife was ‘huge dimensions’ woman as Zygmunt described her, smoking cigarettes, a sensation for that time and place. She used to drink very strong black tea and getting brown on a beach chair placed in the balcony of Kizny’s house. Her daughter was getting brown in bikini, what was shocking oddity for uncle Zygmunt.

And eventually thanks to your research and website I learnt that telephone number of police post where my grandfather Izydor Kizny was on duty as a constable was number 3. Today I would like to call him so much to ask very many questions I did not when he was still alive."


Special thanks to Tomasz Kizny for sharing his recollections and those of his Uncle Zygmunt as well as his photographs.

This small town, near Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislow), is my maternal grandmother's  ancestral shtetl .  With this page, I wish to pay my respects to her and her family, to those I knew and those I did not, to those who came to America and to those who remained behind and perished in the Holocaust.

There is a new sign for Bukachevtsy, certainly an improvement.

I visited Bukachevtsy in May 2001 and again in June 2007.  There's not much left to tell you that Bukachevtsy once had a sizable Jewish population.  There are no Jews and practically no Jewish buildings.  Even the cemetery was largely destroyed.  The Jews of Bukachevtsy exist only in our memories.  If you have memories to share or ties to Bukachevtsy, please contact me.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 

We recently arranged to complete a fence around the cemetery and hope to have a dedication ceremony in the next year or two.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information and in contributing to this effort.

A fence around the cemetery was completed several years ago and we hope, one day, to have a dedication ceremony.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information, in running this effort and contributing to it.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 


A fence around the cemetery was completed several years ago and we hope, one day, to have a dedication ceremony.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information, in running this effort and contributing to it.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 

We recently arranged to complete a fence around the cemetery and hope to have a dedication ceremony in the next year or two.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information and in contributing to this effort.

 


This small town, near Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislow), is my maternal grandmother's  ancestral shtetl .  With this page, I wish to pay my respects to her and her family, to those I knew and those I did not, to those who came to America and to those who remained behind and perished in the Holocaust.

There is a new sign for Bukachevtsy, certainly an improvement.

I visited Bukachevtsy in May 2001 and again in June 2007.  There's not much left to tell you that Bukachevtsy once had a sizable Jewish population.  There are no Jews and practically no Jewish buildings.  Even the cemetery was largely destroyed.  The Jews of Bukachevtsy exist only in our memories.  If you have memories to share or ties to Bukachevtsy, please contact me.

There is a new sign for Bukachevtsy, certainly an improvement.

I visited Bukachevtsy in May 2001 and again in June 2007.  There's not much left to tell you that Bukachevtsy once had a sizable Jewish population.  There are no Jews and practically no Jewish buildings.  Even the cemetery was largely destroyed.  The Jews of Bukachevtsy exist only in our memories.  If you have memories to share or ties to Bukachevtsy, please contact me.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 


A fence around the cemetery was completed several years ago and we hope, one day, to have a dedication ceremony.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information, in running this effort and contributing to it.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 


A fence around the cemetery was completed several years ago and we hope, one day, to have a dedication ceremony.  Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information, in running this effort and contributing to it.

This small town, near Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislow), is my maternal grandmother's  ancestral shtetl .  With this page, I wish to pay my respects to her and her family, to those I knew and those I did not, to those who came to America and to those who remained behind and perished in the Holocaust.

There is a new sign for Bukachevtsy, certainly an improvement.

I visited Bukachevtsy in May 2001 and again in June 2007.  There's not much left to tell you that Bukachevtsy once had a sizable Jewish population.  There are no Jews and practically no Jewish buildings.  Even the cemetery was largely destroyed.  The Jews of Bukachevtsy exist only in our memories.  If you have memories to share or ties to Bukachevtsy, please contact me.
