Book Description
David, Betsy, and Sammy Berman were nine, six, and four years old in
May 1943 when the U.S. Army sent their father, Dr. Reuben Berman, to
Europe. Over the next two and a half years, the
The Berman family letters;
children regularly gathered around their mother, Isabel, in their
Minneapolis home while she typed exactly what they wanted to say to
their father. This collection of more than 340 letters, selected from
more than a thousand exchanged by the Berman family via V-mail,
captures the anxiety and loss that children experienced when their
fathers left for war. "Letters were a key to winning the Second World
War. This extraordinary book views the war from the perspective of
three children who composed hundreds of letters to their father
stationed in Europe. Dear Poppa tells not only of the children's
wartime toys, movies, and radio shows, but also their participation in
paper drives, victory gardens, and war bond campaigns, their dreams
and nightmares, and their deep longing for Poppa's safe return. His
letters home are in this volume, too, making more poignant the role of
letters as morale-builders in wartime."-William M. Tuttle, Jr., author
of Daddy's Gone to War
About the Author
Ruth Berman, too young to write to Poppa during wartime, collected and
transcribed her siblings' and parents' letters for publication.

Greetings, Eilat.
I'm not sure if we've written before.  A distant cousin of mine sent to you the message below in late 202.  I'm not sure what communication followed.  My interest is in the Yechezkel Berman referenced below.  He was my great-grandfather for whom I was named.
We know almost nothing about his life except that he was born with the surname of Lioznov.  He was later adopted by the Berman family, who were friends and possibly distant cousins, to lessen the chance of his being conscripted into the Russian army.  We know he married Chaya Nichamchin and they lived and raised their children listed below in Druja.

I've not successfully worked my way through the burial database mentioned in the noted below.
Do you have any records of Yechezkel Berman ne Lioznov?  Do you have any suggestions for obtaining additional information?  I've not had much luck searching the databases at Jewishgen, etc.
I would be most grateful for any assistance you could provide.

Best regards,
Ed Rappaport

Hi Eilat:
 
I am researching the Nichamchin family of Druya, Disna, Vilna. Chaia (1870-1937), daughter of Isaiah, married Yechezkel Meir Berman (1870-1929), son of Baruch. I found his grave in Volozhin in the jewishgen burial database and on your site under a forum discussing a group who cleaned the graves. They had 8 children, Joseph, Shana, Bertha, Hodda, Manya, Vera, Leah and David. I saw the photos of the Berman family on your site. I can’t tell if this is the same family or not. I am trying to find the link from Chaia to the rest of my family which is all listed on the revisionist lists of Druya, but I can’t find an Isaiah with a daughter Chaya. I have traced my family back to Itsyk Nikhamchin, with sons Iosel (b 1802) and Zysko (b 1810). Any info that you have would be helpful.
 
Thank you,
 
Lainey

Dear Eilat,

Thank you very much for sharing this information (and pardon my typo of 2002 for 2012).

Perhaps some day I'll be able to connect my great-grandfather to someone on that list and/or to one of the Druya Bermans.

Ed
