ANNA BOKSNER AND CHILDREN
Poland
cir bef 1920

Anna Boksner, with her children Rebecca, Edith and Rose

 

from Abe Bucksner, son of Anna Boksner:
"My father came from Wierzbnik and it was my understanding that he ran away from home to escape having to enter the yeshiva. I had heard that his family was wealthy, and once he left home he had no relationship with them. As you must know, names are difficult to always interpret correctly, but his name was Philip (Fishel) Bucksner.  The last name was spelled variously like Boksner or Buksner but we were named Bucksner here in United States. He married my mother Anna (Chana, pictured above) in Lodz, and there the three girls were born. There is a question as to my mother's maiden name. She was the daughter of a widow and a widower with many step-siblings, and she had only the one brother Max (Motel) Green. The Wierzbnik-Starachowice (Yizkor) Book contained the names of many members of my father's family in Hebrew, and I was able to names were Yosef, Ita, Moshe, David, Shlomo, Dov, Yeheshua, and Rachael. All perished at Treblinka.  I do have information that my mother's father's name was Joseph Greenberg, so that was probably her maiden name. My father left Poland to escape the war draft and my mother suffered until he was able to bring her to the United States in 1920."
