Regarding other Langsams in Israel, interestingly enough the head of Yad Vashem, Avner Shalev, is really a Langsam. You will note that Shalev is the Hebraicized translation of the name Langsam. I don't think, however, that he is into the family tree thing. Best regards, Dov Rubin ______________________________________________________ From: Irena.email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Sun, 3 Feb 2002 11:34:29 +0200 Good morning, As promised, I talked to Avner Shalev about your web site. He is very interested in your work, but says that due to his heavy workload at Yad Vashem, he neglected dealing with his own family history. He will do his best to find some time to answer you in detail. Meanwhile he wishes you all the best and congratulates you on the work you have done so far.

Cc: email@example.com, Dear Director, Thank you for your warm words and kind support. Perhaps you can assist me in a somewhat selfish request. Dr. Avner Shalav is a LANGSAM descendant, that was his family name. I have contacted him and his secretary (Irena Steinfeldt) countless times, but can not seem to get any information. Does Dr. Shalav have any siblings or relatives I can speak to instead? I do not need to find this out from him. Like Yad >Vashem, I have the desire to perpetuate my family, especially those that perished in the Holocaust. I can not understand why someone in his position would not share a similar attitude. As someone devoted to commemorating our heritage, perhaps you can prevail upon him to answer three short questions: * father's name * his grandfather's name * what city his grandfather was from Thanks again, Moishe Miller ______________________________________________________ At 05:59 PM 1/8/04 +0200, firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: Hi Moshe, At last!

My mother, Yafa, was born in 1907 in Pprzeworsk Poland. Yakov Langsam was married again to Sima Felner. They lived in Dembow Poland. When my mother ,Yafa, was 12 , she was sent to live in Germany. In the end of 1933 she left Germany and came to Israel in January 1934. I am sorry not to know much about my family. our parents did not talk too much about it. Hope to here from you.
