On the 71st Anniversary Of the Liberation Of Jews From Auschwitz And Other Murder Camps, I Remember The Life Of...

My distant cousin Antoni Andrulewicz (אנתוני בן יוחנן הכוהן אנדרולוביץ, ז''ל והי''ד).









When I was doing more family research, I found out about him (and found this picture) and read about the horrid circumstances of his death.

According to what Ogrodywspomnien.pl cited, he was "arrested" (read "kidnapped"), "held hostage in the Suwalki prison" for almost three months, and murdered by asphyxiation with other victims of a "mass execution" (read, quite frankly, "mass lynching"), and put into a mass grave at the murder site.

Remember that not all Sho'ah victims fit the profile of the oft-described Sho'ah victim—and certainly, not all lived to be victims whom became liberated survivors. Because he was a ben Anusim, he (like other bnei Anusim in Non-Hispanic Europe) got overlooked (despite that Anusim and bnei Anusim were not only in Iberia and not only during the Spanish Inquisition).

As has been said, ****** didn't care whether Jews were Rabbinical, Karaite, or Non-Rabbinical and Non-Karaite Jews; and many continue to leave millions of those whom were counted for murder out of the count of those whom are to be remembered ("[B]ut for Thy sake are we killed all the day; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.").

Even 71 years later, only 6-11 Million victims of the Sho'ah (not counting the gentile ones) are counted and remembered for a blessing; and Stalin, despite that he had his equivalent of a "Final Solution", is remembered as part of the Yalta Three whom led the armed forces that liberated Jews from Auschwitz and other murder ("concentration") camps (and lets be clear: the "concentration" camps were not designed to be anything but murder camps).

Even 71 years later, then, Israel is still not fully liberated from the Nazis—how can Israel be fully liberated when his murdered sons and daughters are still not fully counted and what he endured in, e.g., murder camps is minimized?

לעולם לא שיכחו; לעולם לא שוב!


 "Andrulewicz" and variants thereof originated with "Andrulevičius" (especially "Andrulevičus") in Stakliškės (as I was told on Polish Forums). However, we also have Sephardi or Mizrachi roots, as two of our cousins were named "Kasis" (not "Kasis" as in "spit" or "Kazys" as in "Kazimierz", since that was a later renaming). As far as I can tell perAncestry.com and other sites, then, "Kasis" probably comes from "Casis", which comes with "Qisis" or "Qasis". 

As far, BTW, as why the various branches were all over the place in terms of not speaking to each other, etc., I do not know. I do know, though, that, e.g., the Andrelewitz branch in Vilna probably was done with most of us long before my branch became Anusim (Rochla bas Gitla was among the Vilna branch). 

As far as the Vil'gel'm Andrulevich branch, we last had contact with them roughly about when Great-Granddad was born in Cuman (now Tsuman), since Vil'gel'm lived in Buzhanka near Zvenigorodka (now Zvenyhorodka). Whether it was before Great-Granddad was born or after he was, I don't know. 

I've had to figure out quite a bit of this through inference, etc.. Ultimately, nonetheless, it won't change that I'm a bat-Anusim whom has a duty to make sure that even distant relatives who were Sho'ah victims aren't forgotten.

Parts 1-3 of My Stage32 Submission

Part One Of My Stage32 Writer's Submission

You know what? For lack of better termage, screw it--it may not be creative, but I'm going to write down the real story with the real names for Stage 32--and so what if I get sued? Truth is a lot more interesting than fiction; and in this case, could be turned into something creative--like a movie based on it.

Here's the real story--real names, real everything. The Foczkos, my dad's maternal grandmother's maternal family--in other words, Greg Czarnecki's maternal grandmother (Marysia "Mary" Elizabeth Rusnak Gaydos)'s family--to begin with them--are Khazar-Levitical Jews. In other words, we're part of the 52% of Ashkenazi Levites that had a Khazar patriarch incorporated into our Levitical lines at some points--my cousin Kevin Fosko (who has an Americanized version of "Foczko"--as my great-great-grandmother, Julia Fosko Rusnak, did) took a DNA test and found the R1a1a1 marker and got hits in Germany, Slovakia, Denmark, and (particularly where Foczkos with the exact spelling of the surname that we used have been) Poland.

There was a triangle that the Foczkos were part of once we moved from Khazaria to Russia, to Poland: the triangle was Warsaw, Lodz, and Radom. We got kicked out of that triangle and moved to Zlata Idka, Slovakia (then Aranyida, Hungary) in about 1776--we converted, we were Anusim, and (for lack of better termage) that was a no-no. Why we were Anusim, I don't know. Anyway, we were Anusim--and in many respects, still are--even the Messianics among us (myself included) have many Anusim among us (Well, I'm not one of them--I'm openly a Messianic Jew, though I didn't know that I'm Jewish for a long time.).

By the way, if you don't believe me, go look up "Foczko", "Focko", etc. on JewishGen.org, FamilySearch.org, Ancestry.com, and wherever else--I (along with Kevin, among others; but Kevin and I for the most part) have done the homework. I should've mentioned Khazaria.com, too, while I'm at it--how much do I have to cite to not get sued, by the way (I hate the MLA, by the way--there is nothing new under the sun! Isn't basic citation or attribution enough?)?

Part Two Of My Stage32 Writer's Submission

This story just keeps writing itself. This morning, I found out that Kevin went behind my back and complained to my mom that I'm misrepresenting him and the DNA results, and he's going to write a "registered letter to genealogy" (whatever that means) or something like that. I am still waiting for e-mail responses back at the time of this writing (or rather, writing down--since I'm basically just writing down my family story). To summarize the e-mails and make a long story short, nonetheless, I told him that I am not returning or advocating a return to Khazarate, Levitical, or other Non-Messianic Judaism--for example, to (and here's where the ADL comes after me) pedophiliac metzitzah b'peh--basically, fellatio performed on a circumcised child as an excuse to suck the blood from his wound (if you don't believe me, go look it up for yourself--I've read and researched about it). As one Jews for Jesus forum user once said, the Talmud is a wicked book--and I am not advocating returning to that.

To make a longer story short, I first found out that I am Jewish in 2008 or thereabouts (if not 2008--from what I remember, I joined Ancestry.com on March 12, 2008--as Ancestry.com indicates--to research whether or not I'm Jewish). Forget the Foczkos for a minute, by the way--in other words, don't literally forget them but hold on to them for later, because I'll come back to them. I remembered when my dad used to call me "Nicole Charnetski", had already come across The Complete Jewish Bible by 2006, and was getting into the Jewish roots of my Christian faith. I had also typed in "jewsforjesus.com" or something like that for (what I thought was) a joke, and so began my journey into finding out that my great-granddad Anthony Czarnecki--if nobody else, or at least he (since I at the time, as far as I remember, wasn't really or at all thinking about if anyone else)--was Jewish.

What pops up later but a copy of Julian Czarnecki's death certificate (which Kevin did generously provide for me, by the way)? The death certificate had the names "Czarnecki" and "Danilowicz".

By the way, I'm not using other people's family and civil documents to make up stories like my dad and granddad did--I promise.

To be continued.

Part Three Of My Stage32 Writer's Submission

For a lack of better termage and since someone in Brooklyn searched, I'll get one of the sensitive chapters (maybe the most-sensitive chapter) over with.


   


I did not find out that Great-Grandma Gaydos was a kapo until much later. I watch my Feeedjit (for Blogger) stats, by the way--so if you are who I think you are (i.e., Ally Shumack or one of the other Rusnaks in New York) and you haven't been following what I've been writing, you're in for a surprise about your cousin, or your grandaunt (if you're my great-grandaunt Agnes Rusnak Shumack's granddaughter or grandson), or whoever she (that is, Great-Grandma Gaydos) is to you--that is, in relation to you.

By the way, I may be jumping back and forth here, but this all connects--and will help you understand why my grandma Joan Czarnecki (nee Gaydos) married Jack Czarnecki. To begin, who else would marry a Crypto Jew but a Crypto Jew (with few exceptions, though--might I add--Anusim did stick together and still stick together)? Who else, also, would marry a Crypto Jew who was good at hiding secrets? I'll obviously get back to Great-Granddad Czarnecki and the Czarneckis in a minute, by the way.

Meanwhile and anyway, I'd give Dr. MaryAnn Gaydos (Grandma's surviving-oldest sister at present) credit for making up such a clever story if the situation for which it was made up wasn't as serious as it was. I have to begin with Dr. Gaydos' story because it'll show you how full of secrets and (for a lack of better termage) crap my family is.

Dr. Gaydos claimed that after the war (according to Kevin, though I've recalled during the war), relatives wrote to Great-Grandma Gaydos asking for money. Great-Grandma Gaydos, according to her daughter, then stopped writing. She, however (and as Kevin reminded me that Dr. Gaydos had stated), sent food.

To make the true story short, records on YadVashem.org (which I found while searching to see if any relatives were mentioned or noted on Yad Vashem's website)--so to speak--poke holes right in Dr. Gaydos' story. Now, is it traumatic for a 10-12-year-child to deal with her mother being a kapo? Yes. Does that excuse the cover-up for her mother years later? No, it does not.

The story (as I figured out on my own and through contacting a relative-in-law's grandnephew) is this: Great-Grandma Gaydos had Non-Messianic Jewish relatives in Kosice, Slovakia (then part of Hungary and then Czechoslovakia) who reached out to their Anusi relative as a final resort--after all, they realized that they had stayed in Europe for far too long and should have made (but regrettably did not make) aliyah or another type of exit from Europe (which, long story short, Tibor Geza Rusznyak eventually did--and after he survived the Holocaust, and by coming to Ohio and understandably never contacting our side of the family for the rest of his life).

They, like all other Orthodox P'rushi ("Rabbinate") Jews, were done with the Gyorgy Rusznak ("Gyorgy Kvetkovits"--in other words, Great-Great-Granddad Rusnak's paternal granddad)'s side of the family--with shiva having been sat for him (that is, Gyorgy "Gyorgy Kvetkovits" Rusznak) years ago. However, sinceTalmud Bavli states that one may break a mitzvah to save a life, they obviously broke the shiva-set boundary to save their own lives and their families' lives by reaching out to an Anusi relative.

What was at least one smuggled dollar to get Vilmosz Rusznak, Zoli Grinfeld (Vilmosz's brother in law), and their families out of Europe? What was reaching out to Jewish relatives as a (supposedly-) Jesus-believing Jew? What was helping family and exposing one's self as a Jew?

To Great-Grandma Gaydos, it was everything--and she stopped writing to Vilmosz, Zoli, and the rest of the family in Kosice--and that's how she became akapo. By the way, I now understand the remark that Mom told me that Grandma had once made to her during a conversation about sponsoring needy children--that is, "You keep your money in your own country."

If you think that what Great-Grandma Gaydos did to Vilmosz, Zoli, and their families hit then-10-to-12-year-old MaryAnn, just imagine how it hit then 6-to-8-year-old Joan--and it must continue to hit the self-proclaimed Czechslovakian-American Catholic years later. By the way, Claims Conference Records on JewishGen.org indicate that Vilmosz survived after all. However, neither such evidence nor any other evidence indicates that Zoli and his family did--in fact, the evidences indicates the contrary. Also by the way, one of the Rusznak-Grinfeld children (Sandor) was MaryAnn's age at the time that he was murdered (The other child, Miklosz, was only 10.).
