P r e f a c e


Welcome to my Web site!

 I have built this home page in order to conserve the memory of the Jewish community of Giraltovce.

There were born my ancestors and myself too.

From the community of 351 people before the Holocaust only 60 succeeded to survive.


My dear parents Maria and Isidor Lichtenstein(Lana)

Very few of them were able to recall names and other details. 60 years passed since that community, like many - many others was almost completely destroyed.

Most of the names I have collected in the archives of Yad Vashem and by interviewing all those, who still were able to help to recall all the names.
