THE GUSIACKIS FROM JEDWABNE

 

Fannie (Fejga) Burack, nee Gusiacki, was born in either in Jedwabne, Russia (now Poland), to parents Fajba (Shraga Feivel) and Szjena (Sheina) Gusiacki. The family later changed their surname to Gushatsky. Fannie's parents had at least eight children--five boys and four girls. Some of them immigrated to Palestine. Others, like Fannie, came to New York. Fannie's sister Devora moved to New York and married Leo Oken. Another sister, Chana Sura, married Yitzchak Lojewski, and lived with him on a kibbutz in Israel. Her eldest brother, Mordchaj Juszk presumably died in the Shoah, never having emigrated. Fannie had two brothers who were twins (cf.), Chaim Rubin and Lejzor Wolf. Chaim immigrated to Palestine in 1926, where he married Bracha Atlasovitch three years later. They eventually moved to Perth, Australia. Chaim's brother Lejzor Wolf (who changed his name to Lou Green) moved to Massachusetts where he married Bessie Schwartz.

Another brother, Avraham Hirsh, nee Abram Gerszk, married Leah (Laitche), remained in Jedwabne and also perished with his family in the Shoah. He and his wife are listed in the Jedwabne Yizkor book as being members of the Jedwabne Fire Brigade. Lastly, her sister Shoshana, whom Fannie and her husband Sam had visited in Israel in the mid sixties, emigrated to Palestine and married Avraham Neiditz.
