Dear Mr. Reisenbach, [sic]

Thank you for your past communications about Markowa and Kanczuga. You might recall that Rosalind is the granddaughter of a 1911 emigrant from Kanczuga, Wolf Goldmann. Our family of four went to Poland in June, and went out from Krakow one day with a guide to see the two towns. We were able to get some vital records of interest about Goldmann relatives at the Kanczuga town office. We visited the Kanczuga cemetery, and went over to Markowa at the end of our day to see the new monument to the Ulmas and their fellow victims.

Here is a picture of the 2004 monument. You are welcome to post it on your web page if you would like.

We are now in touch with your correspondent Mr. Szypytma. We are trying to determine whether the Goldmann women killed with the Ulmas were related to Wolf Goldmann's relatives who lived in Markowa. They were said to be daughters of Chaim Goldmann, and we discovered in Kanczuga records a Chaim Goldmann in Markowa who married Wolf Goldmann's sister in 1904. Wolf's uncle and aunt Baruch and Resli (or Dresla, her surname Muller or Hirsch) Goldmann also lived in Markowa and ran an inn there. If you know of any possible source of further information about Markowa Goldmanns, we would be interested.

 

Thank you again for sharing your family story and your pictures online.

 

Best wishes to you and your family,

Rosalind Ramsey-Goldman and Glenn Ramsey
