FOUR JEWISH WWII MILITARY VICTIMS

 

from the new Russian military memorial database, which can be found at http://www.obd-memorial.ru/

The researcher Steve Morse has added an English interface at: http://stevemorse.org/russian/ussrmil.html

It includes 34 names of WWII victims from Mazeikiai, 4 of whom were Jewish:

No. 11 Michael Lempert, son of Isaac (Infantry Brig. 249) (*)

No. 13 Shmuel Shochat, son of Chaim (Infantry Brig. 249)

No. 29 Shmuel Levin, son of Semen (Shimon?) (Infantry Brig. 249)

No. 30 Shmuel Peires, son of Isaac (Brig. 156)

(*) Same names with identical birth and death dates are included in the Hebrew language book: The road to Victory Jewish soldiers of the 16th Lithuanian Division 1942-45). Unit name/no. and place of death are mentioned, as well.

For each name in the list there is a link to an original document, possibly with additional details.

All four served with the 16th Lith. Division (the "Jewish Division").

BLESSED BE THEIR MEMORY. BLESSED BE THEIR SOULS.
