 From: "Andrea Büchler, Rechtswissenschaftliches Institut"
: Sunday, October 21, 2007 11:32 AM

Dear Helen Livnat

 On the Webpage of the Gura Humorului Jewish Community I discovered, that  many Jews with the name "Büchler" lived in this town. My name is Andrea  Büchler and I live in Switzerland. My parents both were born in  Switzerland and are not Jewish. I do not know any relatives with a Jewish background. Now I wonder if I have Jewish roots, were my ancesters come  from and if I am somehow connected to the "Büchler" in Gora Humorului. Can  you help me?

 Thank you very much, sincerely yours

Stiftel family of Vama, Bucovina

From: Bruce STIFTEL []
Sent: Saturday, June 23, 2007 4:51 AM

I'm interested to see that you show a Stiftel surname on your list of  Gura Humorului area families. But you don't have any further details. 

My grandfather, Shmuel Stiftel (b.1866; father's name Meir Yosef) migrated to Bucovina in the 1880s from Galicia and settled in Vama where he married the former Fulia Lang (b. 1866; father: Yerochem Peshel) of Cimpolung.  They had seven children, all of whom were born in Vama: Yitzchak, Max, Morris (b.5654), Reuven (Rudolf), Mollie, Meir Yosef (Joseph, b. 1902), and Blanche (b. 1907 or 1908).  The family left Wama for Wien in 1910. All except Yitchak, Reuven and Mollie later migrated to the U.S.  Max settling in Wilmington Delaware, where he died; Morris in Brooklyn New York (d. 9 Ab 5716) (He is buried in Farmingdale, NY). Shmuel died in Brooklyn in 1944, and Fulia died in Brooklyn in 1950; Shmuel is buried in Flushing NY; Fulia in Farmingdale, NY. Joseph died in Valley Stream NY in 1985 and is buried in Farmingdale NY. Blanche died in Riverdale NY in 2004 and is buried in Farmingdale NY. Yitchak returned to Roumania and died in Bucharest during WWII.  Reuven died in Wien in 1926 and is buried in the Central Cemetary, Wien.  Mollie died in Wien in the teens.

 I would be pleased to learn of any other information pertaining to the Stiftels of Vama or the Langs of Cimpolung.  Thank you for maintaining your web site.  Baruch Stiftel

 ערב טוב אלי

ישבתי מרותקת למסך המחשב שלי, והתבוננתי בתמונות האנשים מגורה-הומורה כל הכבוד לרעיון, למוסרי התמונות, ולביצוע. אני מניחה שלכל תמונה יש גם סיפור - ארוך בודאי, מהכותרת של כל תמונה. אולי יש מקום להכניס גם את "סיפורי התמונות". למשל בתמונה של הילדים בבית הספר היהודי משנת 1920-30, מי יודע לפענח את שמות המורים? את שמות הילדים? לכתוב משהו על המוסד הזה?

כן ירבו מוסרי התמונות !

שלום מר שחר,

אני מלא הערכה על העבודה שעשית ועושה.
ברצוני להביא לידיעתך שגם משפחתי קשורה לגורה הומור.
הורי גרו במולדוביצה (הכלולה ברשימתך) בשנת 1940 כל היהודים גורשו מהכפרים והורי עברו לגור בגורה הומור.
גרנו ברחוב הראשי, קרוב ומול הכנסייה. באוקטובר 1941 גורשנו לטרנסניטריה והיינו שם בשרגורוד כי הצטרפנו
לקרובי משפחה מקימפולונג.
הייתי בגורה הומור ב-1956 וביקרתי את קרובי המשפחה שלי אברום זאנד ואישתו אדלה.
לפיכך דומני שיש לרשום את משפחתי ברשימה שלך. אני מצרף את שמות הורי ואחותי בלועזית.
במידה  ואוכל לעזור לך בצורה כל שהי נא פנה אלי ואשמח לעזור ככל שאוכל.

 Dear Mr. Schachar Eli,

Again, after a long time I'm writing to you, this time to promote your website. I was recently watching Schindler's List Movie (I have seen this movie 7 th time) and I thought about you. Very educative movie for those who want to understand the past and hope that the mankind will not repeat those mistakes.

 I'm writing to you this time to ask you if you want to create a banner (IAB Standard),
( -- see here the format we can support in our site) and we will put it in our website with no charge at all.

 Additionally I would like to ask you if you have materials (in English) about Jewish History in Gura Humorului so we can translate them and publish in our website under your name. We thought of a title "Know your town history" or something like that. An article /month from you I think will keep the people interested instead of give them all in one shot.

If you are interested in this please respond to my email and I will make all the possibility to insert a blog in my website or to create a section in Gura Humorului about Jewish Community around the world who has roots in our town.

Dear Mr Schachar

 I found on your web site cemetary listing the name Chaim Hochstatt. My  grandfather Josef Hochstadt (sometimes Hochstaedt) was from Czernowitz, he was born in 1890. His father was Lieb Hochstadt, an accountant, and his mother was  Rachel  Turtel (Turtle?).Therewere two sisters Janet and Rosa, one perished during the holocaust, the other survived.  She was living in the Ukraine the the 1960's, I know nothing else about her. I know nothing about my grandfathers grand-parents other than that one of them had a farm near Czernowitz. Does any one of your members know anything about theHochstadt family or have they ever heard of Turtel's. My grandmother's family, Brenners and Peretzs  from Itcani had quite a few survivors, but I know noext to nothing about my grandfather's life.  He never talked about his past.  Now it i getting to the point where there is no one left to ask questions of

Thanks again for posting my HEIER & ZEIGER family info on your website.  I just recently learned that Moses Zeiger, the jeweler listed in community records, was the brother of my grandfather, Isidor Zeiger.  Moses was the son of Michael ZEIGER & Yetta HEIER.  I don’t know when he was born or when he died (though I suspect he was likely buried there – he did not immigrate to the USA as his brothers and sisters did).

When you get a moment, please include him in your list of residents.

Hello! I’d like to add and clarify a bit of info about the Heier and Weber families that lived in Gura Humorului:

1.  Izchak Heier (already listed) was born Jan 18, 1897 and died on Jan 1, 1986.  He is the son of David Heier & Malka Weber

2.  Malka Heier (already listed) is the wife of David Heier (already listed).  Her maiden name is Weber and her father was Nathan Weber.  You have her mother listed as Bessie Weber, but none of my research has confirmed this.  If you have any source that mentions Bessie as her mother, please let me know – I’d be very interested! 

3.  Nathan Heier (already listed) was my great-great grandfather and HE was married to Bessie Weber.  In addition to his two sons already listed (Abram & Samuel Heier), he had a daughter:  Yetta Heier.  She was born Dec 5, 1870 and died Dec 4, 1943.  She was my great-grandmother and definitely lived in Gura Humorului.  Her following family members were also either born in Gura Humorului or lived there for a significant part of their youth before immigrating to New York City.  Please include their names in your database too! 

Michael Zeiger               born 1868                      died Aug 27, 1946          husband of Yetta Heier

Nathan Zeiger                born Nov 13, 1890          died Nov 4, 1966            son of Michael Zeiger & Yetta Heier

Clara Zeiger                   born July 16, 1896          died Feb 20, 1978          daughter of Michael Zeiger & Yetta Heier

Mary (Miriam) Zeiger      born 1900                      died June 5, 1960           daughter of Michael Zeiger & Yetta Heier

Lotti (Leah) Zeiger          born 1902                      died Apr 27, 1962           daughter of Michael Zeiger & Yetta Heier

Isidior (Israel) Zeiger       born Jan 7, 1903            died May 30, 1967         son of Michael Zeiger & Yetta Heier 

Once again, the above names were not all born in Gura Humorului, nor did they die there, but they were all definitely residents of town at some point between 1896 and 1922. They are my grandparents, aunts and uncles. 

Thank you! Jonathan Levine

I am searching on the net for many years and this is probably the first information that I am seeing that can be closer from my needs.Let me tell you the history and see if you can help me in any way.My grandfather’s name was Bernardo Rosenthal (in portugues). He come to Brazil around 1915/1930. He was born in Romania (as his passport). He died in Brazil in 1984. We know that his parents died in his city and he come with a cousin that toke the way to United States at that time. I have to informations. One is this picture that I am sending to you that you can find the name of the city (Campulung Moldovenesc) that is very close from Gura Humorului. At the other hand we always listen that he was from Rascani (At my research I found it that is a city in Moldavia, now Transnitria). The reason that I am asking your help is because I also now that my grandfather’s father name was Yitzhak and I saw at the residents list a name Yitzhak Rosenthal. 


  1. Do you have any information about this Yitzhak Rosenthal?
  2. Do you think is possible to be the same person?
  3. At your experience, Can my grandfather born in Rascani and have this picture in his things?

I would like also to congratulate you for your work on your website. Is a really good site which reflect in every aspect  Jewish Community from Gura Humorului. I have same vague  memories, since I was 4 years old related with a Jewish person  from Gura Humorului. When I was 4 years old my father took me to one man who name was Shapira (I don’t know if I wrote correctly) who was a pianist near Public Library – If I recall correct. – to learn piano. Well it wasn’t my destiny to learn piano, but to do literature. J

I keep tracking the changes you make on the web page and since I found some Jewish personalities posted (I think by you)  on Wikipedia I would like to ask you  if you know a great person – maybe Shapira? – in your Community to be added in our site. We have (currently under revision) a section called: Great Persons From Gura Humorului – people who changed, influenced or brought GH in the attention of public, and I want to add someone from Jewish Community. My first thought was on Shapira, but if you know another person suitable  to our category and if you are kind, please send us some personal dates, work a.s.o to be published. You can send it in English if is ok for you and we will translate it into Romanian. 

I hope also into a collaboration with you for promoting Gura Humorului.

It has been several months since I visited the Gura Humora web site and I am pleased to see the new information and appearance of the site. I have not found the link for letters, though, therefore I am using your e-mail address I have had from previous communication.

I have not yet sent you the information I promised about my father, grandparents and other family members and friends, but I hope to do that soon, together with my photos and stories from my October 2005 short trip to Gura Humora.  

Visiting Gura Humora of which I've heard so much from my late father, I understood the special connection people have with this beautiful, quiet and airy town. I was sorry I didn't visit it long time ago, as things are changing, my family's former house is no longer there in the developing town center, and the flour mills my grandpa operated were no where to find. The local people and officials seem very supportive, welcome Jewish visitors and proud of the planned restoration of the synagogue. Yet no Jewish memorial is to be found in the general museum.

 I just found this web site and it is very exciting.You have done a great job with it. My name is Jacob Tsabar. I was born in Israel and immigrated to the USA. My father, Michael Tsabar (Salzberger) was born in Gura Humurlui in 1912. In 1925 his parent and him immigrated to Israel where they joined his two older siblings, Dr. Mordechai (Moti) Salzberger who lived with his family in Jerusalem, and Pinchas Salzberger who lived with his family in Haifa. My father established and managed "OHM Electrical Works, Ltd."in Haifa's Bay (the first manufacturer of washing machines - "Kal-Li" in Israel). He passed away in1974, at age 62, in Haifa. My mother, Lya Tsabar (Salzberger, nee' Schieber), passed away this year.She was born in Dorna in 1921.

I did not see any reference to my father's family (Salzberger) in the site or in any of the linked names' lists. Is there a way to append the listing?

By the way - Walter Schapira, who is mentioned as one of the contributors to the site, is a cousin of my father (my fraternal grandmother is from the Schapira family).

הרקע שבחרתם, אינו נוח לקריאה. המילים שמודפסות לא קריאות בגלל שהרקע מחוספס.

צריך לקחת בחשבון שאתר מסוג זה פונה לאוכלוסיה די מבוגרת שיש לה מגבלות ראיה מטבע הדברים.

כדאי מאוד למצוא פתרון לרקע, להרגיע אותו קצת. שיהיה חלק. אולי זה פחות יפה - אבל יותר יעיל ובריא.

Just dropped by your site, since there was a link from the Bukovina Society. Thought that I might point out that the software used to create the list of Gura Humorului Residents is Microsoft Explorer spedific. If you call up the site using Mozilla, or Netscape (and presumeably, any MacIntosh software) the tables do not display correctly. For those of us who stay away from Microsoft products because of the built-in Virus and Pop-Up Ad problems, this is rather frustrating to find sites that are
created to only function using Microsoft's software.

My family came from Schwarztahl, which is about 20 Km south of Gura
Humora, they left in 1909. I visited in 2000. Beautiful place.

My mother's sister, Enna, her husband Gerschon and son Abi (Chaim) Haiman or Heiman are also not there. Does Mr. Iurgrau have a e-mail address?

We believe that your website constitutes an important resource of the Jewish life in Romania(as we also believe that it required a great effort in making it) and we are convinced that it will be highly regarded by many people.
Therefore, we wish to support your initiative by adding a link to your website on the Romanian Jewish Heritage website, the section FEDROM > Data about cemeteries and monuments.
We kindly invite you to check if the link works appropriately and to confirm that.
