Stanislawow. Alphabetical index of Jewish residents, from 1941, after the
German occupation of the town. There are 5,876 entries here, giving the
names of Jews in the town in late 1941, before the ghetto was set up at
the end of December. Originally, there were another 1,300 entries in this
file, but parts of it were removed or lost at some point after the end of the
war. In particular, surnames starting with C, N, R, U, V and Z are all
missing. Surnames with S are also missing, except for those starting with
SCH-, which are included. Years of birth and addresses in the town are
given for those listed.
- Stanislawow. Jews who were ill or injured, September 10, 1941 to
September 16, 1942. This book contains 1,298 entries, with some people
listed more than once. The age of the person and their address are given.
Also included in the book (though not indexed) are the conditions of
those listed and the rudimentary treatment provided for their condition -
in many cases simply a "Verband" (bandage, dressing).
From Ofir Kafri: Maybe it will interest you to know or maybe the Rohtyn community that there is a govermant archive in Israel that holds files containing historical and family information of Holocaust survivors who sought compensation for the Holocaust. The files sometimes also contain information from Germany. To my delight, they found files of my grandparents that contained information about the family from Rohtyn and documents from the family's history. It should be noted that files did not always survive or are found as happened in the case of my father's parents. They provide free service. Relatives of the deceased can contact them or the survivors themselves. In our case they responded quickly. I hope they behave this way regularly towards families who turn to them. I am adding links to the two government units dealing with the subject. Unfortunately the pages are in Hebrew and without an English translation. I have also added their email that can be contacted regarding archive files.
Regarding the government departments. Both units do not publish lists of people online so an independent search cannot be done. They also did not publish procedures for providing information from the archives.
As for the Department for holocaust survivors rights, i understood that they search the archive with the Israeli ID number of the survivor. In other words, he should have been an Israeli resident when he applied for compensation and the file opened. To receive the information from the archive an application must be filled out, including the details of the survivor (name, birth date etc.) and details of the person that requested the file (if it's a relative and not the survivor). I emailed them and received the files by email.
As to the Department of personal damages the process is more complex and less clear. There is no organized website. They are focused on compensation claims previously sent to Germany. As I understand it, they search the archive by name and surname, date of birth, original country and maiden name in case it is a woman. They do not ask for an Israeli ID number or citizenship information of the survivor. But apparently the survivor had to be a resident of Israel when he applied for compensation. If the survivor does not apply personally, then they seek proof that the person that requested the file is the heir of the survivor and confirmation of the survivor's death. I emailed them and they emailed the information they found back to me. During the process an employee also contacted me on the phone and tried to identify the relatives from a list he had. If I understood correctly they give information to families regardless of the contemporary citizenship of the survivor (from my experience with Israeli bureaucracy and when there are no visible procedures things can sometimes change depending on the clerk :)).
