Shindishover Relief Dinner Dance 1945

On December 1, 1945, the Shindishover Relief, Inc. held an affair to raise funds for the landslayt back in the hometown now known as Sędziszów Małopolski.

Ruth Kreinik found a rolled-up panorama photo of the event labeled

DINNER DANCE TENDERED BY
        SHINDISHOVER RELIEF, INC.

        PYTHIAN TEMPLE. DEC 1, 1945

Ruth sent the photo which is too big for my scanner, so here it is in sections. [Click on an image to see a larger version.]













Ruth identified her parents Morris and Lillian Kreinik and also Stanley Kreinik's parents Walter and Helen in the right panel.
Kreinik Cousins Section

Maybe Walter's brother Moe Kreinik and his wife Rose are at the event.
My idea is to publicize this to the people who might be able to identify other members of this landsmanshaft.

"Izaak (Irving Taffel) immigrated in 1911 on the ss Amerika from Hamburg and joined his brother who, by then, had established himself at 400 E. 75th St in Manhattan."  Mattityahu Yarom, "You're My Cousin!!!" 2012, page 82.  Irving was at the 1941 dinner.


Below is a list of last names of people who also might be in the 1945 photo. The list has been gleaned from the Mount Hebron Cemetery listings of burials by the SENDIZOW GALICIAN society, and from searches in the JRI-Poland databases for people with links to Sedziszow.

Hello! I was looking for some information about my mom's home town, I know it as Shendishif, and lo and behold your page popped up...... that photo looked familiar, I remember it in my grandmother's house.... and lo and behold my mom and grandparents are in it, the only survivors of a large family...... Their last name, Chaim, was changed to Heyman. My grandparents, Emily and Lazar Heyman are sitting with my mom, Elizabeth Heyman Schaffer. Thank you SO Much for putting this in your blog!!! Now I have a bit more information about where their town was!

Sincerely, Marguerite Neuhaus Stamford, Conn.
