Yom Hashoah 2019

Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) starts this evening.  For the past three years, I have listed the names of the family members I've found who were murdered in the Holocaust.  In 2018, I listed 259 relatives.  In 2019, I am listing 367.

Every year, this list grows as I find new branches of my family--and then find that multiple members of those branches were killed somewhere between 1941 & 1945.  This year I found over 100 more people--and many other relatives whose fates are as yet unclear.

Publishing this yearly list is my one small way to make sure they are all remembered--all 367 of those currently on this list.

Front Row L-R: Yosef Wollich, Mendel Chechman, Devorah Chechman; Back Row L-R: Sara Fine Wollich, Moshe Wollich, Chaike Chechman.  All were murdered in the Holocaust

May their memories be for a blessing.  יהי זכרם ברוך.

Note:  I'm on Twitter.  Follow me (@larasgenealogy).


  1. Thank you for making them visible and for all the hard work it took to find all their stories.

  2. I don't even know what to say. Blessings.

  3. Thank you for posting this list. It is very important to share the names so they are not forgotten. Also, You turned up as an AncestryDNA match to my mother, and, from your list, I think I can see where our trees intersect.

  4. Lara, thank you for this a stark reminder. I was struck by the number of children and young adults. You have taken on a sad but necessary journey.

  5. What proof do you use to add them to your tree. I just found four whole families that were in or around the war I am still trying to find out what happen to them. What kind of information should i be trying to get so I can add them to the tree as of having been in the war or died because of it .
