The missing grave of Chaja KARTIGANER who died in 1940

Chaja Chaya KARTIGANER/ KARTAGINER/ KARTYGANER/ KARTAGANER  was born in Ulanow, probably between 1860 - 1870. 

She was married to Moshe ROSENMUND. He died before the war.

Among their children was the son Dovid Dawid KARTIGANER. He was married to Frajdel Fradel  Freidel KELCZ from Lubaczow. They lived in Lubaczow with their four children Samuel Moses, Zelda,  Mendel (Cheskel)  and Meszl.

In the autumn of 1939, Chaja Chaya  was staying with her son's family in Lubaczow. 

In the beginning of 1940 Chaja died in Lubaczow and was buried there. 

The location of Chaja’s grave in Lubaczow is unknown.

Dovid Dawid, his wife Frajdel Fradel and their four children hid in the forests around Lubaczow. 

They were discovered by the Germans and shot, either in 1944 or in the spring of 1945. 

When and where exactly this happened is unknown.

In memory of Chaja Chaya  KARTIGANER  who died in 1940 in Lubaczow and of her son from Lubaczow, Dovid Dawid  Kartiganer, and his wife Fraidel Kartiganer nee Kelcz, and their young children Shmuel Moshe / Samuel Moses,  Zelda, Mendel Cheskel (Yecheskel), and Meshele Meszel who were murdered  by the Nazis in 1944 or 1945 while hiding around Lubaczow.

A tragedy for the TEMPELMAN family

Earlier I have mentioned  that so many people died in Lubaczow under WWI. Was it disease or because of of the war? I do not know.

One couple, Samuel and Cypra TEMPELMAN, lived in Krowica. 
Samuel TEMPELMAN , born ca 1874, was the son of Liepa TEMPELMAN and Zysla Suessla nee ROSENFELD. 
Samuel's wife, CYPRA, born ca 1883,  was the daughter of Samuel SCHNECK and Lieba nee KORN.
They may have married around 1901, when Cypra was 18 years old.

They had at least three children:
Leibisch TEMPELMAN born ca 1902
Mincza TEMPELMAN born ca 1912
Selda TEMPELMAN born ca 1914

Perhaps additional children born between 1903 to 1911?

Through the Lubaczow Death Register, we see the deaths of four of these family members in 1915:
First three year old Mincza died, and then one year old Selda.
After her two daughters had died, the mother Cypra died, 32 years old.
In the same year, the son Leibisch, 13 years old, died.

Four years later, in 1919, the father, Samuel TEMPELMAN, 45 years old , died. 

His grave has been located on Row 27, Grave 15.

In the future it would be important to photograph that gravestone and read the text.
