Birthday remebrances today for Stanislaw, son of Jan Tygier and Barbara Najman, who was born this day in Poland in 1913. He passed away in Harrow, London in 1983. He experienced such a lot through out his life and I can only hope that the good times eventually outweighed the bad. Happy Birthday Stanislaw.
Birthday remembrances today for Irene Tigier born this day 1910 in Piotrków Trybunalski, Lodzkie, Poland. Irene’s parents were Jan Tygier and Barbara Najman and she was the sister of Stanislaw Tygier.
As you can see her surname is spelt in a different way. Was this a clerical error? Was it an attempt to conceal her true identity? We’ll have to wait and see!
So today would have been Louis’s birthday. He was born 8th August 1908 in Birmingham, the son of Joseph Teiger and Annie Ison.
In the 1911 census we find him living at 82 Gooch Street, Birmingham with his parents and his brother Sidney. Quite a “cosmopolitan” family with Joseph his father being born in Poland, Annie his mother born in London, Sidney his brother was born in Wales whilst Louis was born in Birmingham.
Louis married Blanch Edwards in June 1935 and at this time he is already living in London and can be picked up in the Electoral Rolls 1934-1939. They had a daughter Julie in 1937.
He appeared in a newspaper story in 1947 after he was involved in a traffic accident, unfortunately with a policeman on his motorcycle! His occupation was reported as “traveller”. The case was dismissed.
Louis passed away in March 1981 and was buried 22nd March 1981 at Bushey Jewish Cemetery, Little Bushey Lane, Bushey, Herts WD23 3TP. (Section 26, Row 18, Plot 712) next to his wife Blanch.
Contact made with Jonathan Tygier who is living in London and is an architect. His father was Stanislaw Tygier, one of the last family members to make it to the UK.
With a little help from Google Translate to assist with my patchy German, some of the details are as follows:
- Birth Date (Geburstag): 10.10.1910
- Birth Place (Geburtsort): Piotrkow Trybunalski “According to Russian census of 1897, out of the total population of 30,800, Jews constituted 9,500 (around 31% percent).” (Wikipedia).
- Address (Wohnort) – not yet located
- Profession (Beruf): It appears to state something like “cook”
- Nationality (Volkstumszugeh): Pole
- “Creed” (Glaybensbek): Not sure
- Prospective State (Staatsangeh) on the 01.09.39: Poland?
- Height (Grösse)
- Form (Gestalt): Strong, Hefty or even Robust
- Complection (Gesicht): Hmmm lots of translated options – rich, plump, mellow……
- Hair (Haar): Blonde
- Eyes (Augen): Brown
- Special Marks (Besondere Kennzeichen): None
- Signature of the card holder (Unterschrift des Ausweisinhabers)
“Krzemienica” as a place in Poland seems to have four options so I am not sure which one is correct but I assume that Irene was in one of them on 12.04.1943.
A “very frighten lady” who made it out of Poland and lived in Paris.
