NOTES FROM MY MEETING
WITH ZLATA-ZINA EISENBERG
96 YEARS OLD
The meeting took a place
on January 12, 2002
in Beer Sheba, Israel.
Zlata EISENBERG was born in 1906 in Radomyshl
and lived there until 1930. Then she moved to Kiev. When W.W.II began,
she was evacuated to Saratov region of Russia. In 1947 she came back to
Radomyshl. In 1995 she immigrated to Israel. Today she is 96. In circle of
her family she is called Zina.
Zlata told me about my great
grandfather Elya ZAYEZDNY. Until the
Revolution he owned printing and publishing house, bookshop. He had
published a newspaper. After the Revolution he published only evening
news during a short time. Local Ukrainian labors were working in the
she have recognized Elya’s son Leib ZAYEZDNY, who was working at the
father’s bookshop. She told that Leib was helping his father in the
business. She remembers as she was buying notepads there. On the photo
she also recognized Elya’s daughter Rosa and her husband Haskel
MARGOVSKY. She remembers them very well. Haskel’s parents owned
manufactory shop. Other family of MARGOVSKYs was worked for Haskel’s
She also remembers a location
of the house and the business of the
ZAYEZDNYs. Their house was on the corner of Pochtovaya (Lenin
street – in Soviet period) and Prisutsvennaya (19 Parts’yezd
street – in Soviet period). She recalled that one of Elya’s
daughters was a dentist, graduated from the Institute. She didn’t
know her name. (This fact wasn’t known to our family – I guess,
Zlata have confused the facts.)
Zlata also explained how
to find Elya’s burial place. It is
situated on the left side of the cemetery, near the grave of
her Uncle Meishe KOTOVSKY.
She told that Lesya, nee
BELORUSETS, my great grandmother, was
very beautiful woman. Among members of BELORUSETS family she
recollected Shiml BELORUSETS, two his sons Sheilik and Izya
(who served for "Che-Ka") and his gibbous daughter. Perhaps
they were related to Lesya.
Zlata reminded Yankel ZAYEZDNY,
the brother of Elya. Yankel was a cabman (“izvozchik”). He owned
a pair (“parakonnaya”). She doesn’t know other ZAYEZDNYs in
Radomyshl. Yankel had daughters. Eldest one was Nechama,
she was known in the town, lived on the corner house near
the market, other daughter’s name Zlata doesn’t remember.
Yankel had also a few sons, who were cabmen too. Last one
Iosif worked in Radomyshl as a cabman. Zlata doesn’t know
anything about children of Iosif because in 1930 she left
Radomyshl. Iosif was working in Radomyshl long time. He was
preparing fruit and vegetables. He rented some gardens.
Two sisters of Zlata had
immigrated to America before Bolshevik
Revolution. They were married. Probably, they changed their
surnames from EISENBERG to BERG and WEIS.
