|Information below is from an old 3x5 index-card in Jason I Alpert's files:
[Some updates, added in year 2002, are included -- Jason I Alpert]:
Anya (Mrs Zigmund) Beatus
1130 Brighton Beach Avenue
Brooklyn NY 11235
Anya (nee Ejdelman or Edelman): daughter of Szaja Ejdelman (Shaya Edelman) of Vileyka. She married Ziggie, and they emigrated to the USA before Holocaust.
Szaja Ejdelman owned a large lumber-exporting business in Vileyka. Anya remembers Jason's father, from when he worked for her father Szaja. Anya was about 14 years old when Jason's father left Vileyka, in Dec. 1926, for the USA. Szaja's wife may have been aunt of Jason's father (needs investigation).
01/20/85: Jason visited Anya and Ziggie (both lx) at above Brooklyn address. They gave Jason a copy of an English translation of a Yiddish article that was printed in the Vileiker Yizkor-Book ("Memorial Book of the Kehillah of Vileika").
This article described the travails of Ejdelman family under Soviet exile in Siberia. (Szaja died there, but the rest of family survived. In effect, the exile to Siberia saved them from extermination by the Nazis, who invaded Vilejka in 1942.)
08/18/89: TelCom with Anya. Randy Daitch was also on the line. [Note: This is the Randy Daitch of the "Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex" at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html]

On this photo, the person sitting on the floor, first from the right, is my grandfather, Lazar Zalmanowicz Kopelewicz. He was rescued from the Krasna labour camp by the Frunze regiment partisans and served with them untill the end of the war. He died in 1950 in Vieleyka.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a historian of the crimes committed by Nazi Germany in the former Soviet Union. I have just written an article on the massacres committed by an SS commando in the Belarusian town of Vileyka in July 1941. I am now searching for appropriate images and came across your website.
On the website, at http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/vileyka/vileyka.html, there is a photograph (#vil-12) that I would be interested in using for my article, which is to be published in the prestigious journal "Holocaust and Genocide Studies". Does the photograph show, as I assume, the city of Vileyka? Could you tell me in which year the photograph was taken?
According to the caption on the photograph, the copyright is owned by Tomasz Wisniewski. Would it be possible for me to receive an electronic copy of the photograph for use in my article (in high resolution, preferably as a TIF file)? I would be happy to cite your website and/or Mr Wisniewski, or whatever other information you would like.
I look forward to hearing from you.
With thanks and kind regards,

I am a descendant of the Svirsky family from Vileika, which appears on your site dedicated to the town. My family and I found the site very interesting. My mother, now 82, as a child knew some of the people who are pictured.
We wanted to ask you a few questions. First, even though we have many pictures of the family, we do not possess the images on your website. Where did you obtained them? ( most pictures are from the Vileka Yizkor book) Also, the page Svirsky several images that do not appear in it: it records 11 pictures but only five appear. Do you have the six remaining images as well?
Of course, we will be happy to help , if you're interested.
Thanks and Shana Tova,( Googled Translation was used)
