SHUMSK NECROLOGY

The list of surnames below was translated by Rachel Karni from the necrology "The Martyrs of Shumsk" (list of Shumsk Jews killed in the Holocaust) in the Shumsk Yizkor Book. In the book, given names, or in some cases notations such as "children - 2," also appear; here, just the number of people listed with each surname is given. In the book, the names are alphabetized in Hebrew, while here they are alphabetized in English, more or less. Shumsk, in Ukraine, was part of Poland between World War I and World War II. The translator used spellings, often Polish, that were found in the following sources, which can be consulted for more information about people from Shumsk. 

1. Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem 
2. Polish Business Directory 1923 -- Szumsk listings 
3. Ellis Island passenger records of people from Shumsk 
4. Shumsk records (1922-1938) from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People 

When no such documentation could be found, the following sources were consulted for name spellings. 

1. Family or friend 
2. "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire" by Alexander Beider 
3. Kremenets vital records (1870-1894) made available by the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP 

The spelling sources for each surname are listed in the table below. Where there are variant spellings, they correspond in order to the sources listed. For those unfamiliar with Polish spellings, a few rules of pronunciation: Polish "c" is pronounced like English "tz." Polish "cz" is pronounced like English "ch." Polish "j" is pronounced like English "i." Polish "sz" is pronounced like English "sh." Polish "w" is pronounced like English "v." Thus, the name spelled "Kac" in Polish is equivalent to the English "Katz." Similarly, "Szmulowicz" would be written "Shmulovich" in English. 

If the spelling source is Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem, the Shumsk records from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People or "family or friend," the source refers to the same individual(s) or family as the Shumsk necrology. Names found in the other sources may or may not refer to the families in the Shumsk necrology, and in many cases this has not been determined. 

The Shumsk Yizkor Book in the original Hebrew and Yiddish is available here in both digital and printed forms via the National Yiddish Book Center. It is also available online via the New York Public Library (listed under the spelling Shimsk).

* Translator's note: Avraham Wajsberg is listed in the Shumsk Yizkor Book necrology, but other sources do not contain this surname. Wajsbrojt is not in the Yizkor Book necrology. However, Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People and Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem have material on Avraham Wajsbrojt or Weisbrot of Shumsk, his wife and two children. Translator believes the Wajsberg listing to be an error on the part of the Yizkor Book compilers.
