Perechyn Family Photos

To be inclusive, we contacted all of the Perechyn researchers with an e-mail address listed in JewishGen (as of 16 October 2012).
We asked each person contacted for family photographs or anything else to make the Perechyn shtetl web pages in JewishGen's
KehilaLinks more interesting for all current and future researchers. Our sincere appreciation is expressed to all who responded.

Below, you will find photos of families that once lived in Perechyn.
In most cases, the photos you see survived the Holocaust only because they were mailed to relatives in the United States and elsewhere.

Left to right: unknown, unknown, unknown, Ilona KLEIN (b. 1910 in Puspokladany), unknown, unknown and unknown.

Ilona's mother, Hermina KLEIN (née KUNSZTLER), was born in Perechyn c. 1886. Ilona and her sisters and mother may have lived in Perechyn in 1917-18 after Russia pulled out of the war, and invasion by Romania looked likely to affect Debrecen, where they lived at the time. Ilona's grandparents David and Regina (née SUSZHOLCZ) KUNSZTLER, both from Hanusovce nad Toplou, lived in Perechyn from approximately 1871 until their deaths in 1927, and had five other children in addition to Hermina. David KUNSZTLER was an innkeeper in Perechyn. Descendants of Hermina and her siblings, who emigrated from Hungary between 1900 and 1937, live in Canada, Israel and the United States.
