|I am not sure of everything it says above in
Russian, but from various sources, and help with the
translations, a summary of what was found in the various
documents in "Russia's Fallen" is as follows.
|A Krasilov native, Moisej Haimovich Prejgerzon, (1917-1945), a lieutenant,
who was killed in the battle on the territory of West
Poland and was buried in the local cemetery of Polish
(former German) town of Marienverder.
Prejgerzon was killed 01/28/1945; the closest
relative, to whom the Military staff sent the report of
his death, was his aunt Frima Efimovna Edelshtein, in the city
This is some history contributed by Eugenia Sheinman.
was a student of Leningrad Electronic Institute before
he got enlisted in the Red Army. Usually students had
to get Military specialty and proper training during
their learning in the Institute, after which they got
a minor officer rank. That's why (I suppose) he became
a lieutenant and a commander of a platoon. Or it might
be that he was sent to the officers' school during or
before the war. His aunt (1886-1964) was also a
Krasilov native, b. Byk (her brother was Rabbi
Chaim-Mechel Byk (or Bik) of Medzibozh (1888-1964),
who left for the USA in 1925, their sister emigrated
in 1906? became a wife of Meer Tuler / Morris Tuller
and lived in New York, where [she] passed away in
1931. I knew both Frima Efimovna and her two children
while living in Leningrad. Frima Byk's mother's maiden
name was Prejgerzon (Pregersohn).
|There are a few ways find
the "Russia's Fallen" data.
is in Russian seems to be a memorial site for the Jews
from "Russia's Fallen". I have no way of knowing if it
contains all the Jews from the complete "Russia's
Fallen" site. The picture and text above came from this
site. Steven Morse has a front end in English which
allows searching the "complete?" "Russia's Fallen" web
His front end searches the site http://www.obd-memorial.ru/
which is in Russian. One hint, if you try using these
sites. Spelling of the name is critical. On Morses site
I did a search for Preygerzon (Прейгерзон
) and found two seperate documents for Moisey. Searching
on Preigerzon (Преигерзон
) I found a third document. Since all the documentation
is in Russian (except for the deceased name) it is hard
for me to say what is unique about each document.
