Lazer/Lazar Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The surname Lazer was pronounced like "lazzer" in Poland. The earliest family members were in the tiny village of Grabowiec. The family resided in Chelm, Poland prior to the Holocaust. I created a memorial website for Jewish Chelm.

According to a DNA test taken by a family member, the family origins are Spain, per the haplogroup R1b1b2. Apparently the Lazer ancestors left Spain upon Jewish expulsion and went to the Netherlands, and then made their way to Poland.

GER HASIDISM

The family was Hasidic and followed the Ger branch of Hasidic Orthodox Judaism. Avraham (Awrum) Lazer, the father of Sura Rifka (Sara Rywka), was a very righteous man, called a tzadik in the Jewish tradition. He was a merchant and possibly sold vinegar. He had dark hair, a long gray beard, and wore a long black coat and round felt hat.

LIFE IN AND OUT OF CHELM

My great-grandmother's father Zalman Czesner had red hair. He had a cooking oil production factory/company. Sura Riwka Czesner, his wife, wore a schadel (head covering) and was overweight. Both he and his wife lived up to the beginning of the Holocaust. They were likely murdered in Chelm or sent to the Belzec or Sobibor Death Camps.

Rucha Lai, the sister of Sura Rykwa, lived in Zamosc and married a man named Szlema Czesner (Chesner), the shoichet of Zamosc. He was a distant cousin of the Zalman Czesner of Chelm and originated in Horodlo. Rucha Lai was "a little woman" according to my grandmother.

NOTABLE RELATIVE

Fishel Lazer was the publisher of the newspaper in Chelm. He may be a distant relative through the Lazers from Grabowiec. Fishel was well known throughout southeast Poland. He was murdered during the Nazi bombing of Warsaw in 1944. We remember Fishel Lazar.

HOLOCAUST VICTIMS

Most of the family was murdered in the Shoah. I found a listing for a Moszek Szpic from Chelm, born May 26, 1898. He was living in Lublin and was transferred to Dachau Concentration Camp and then transferred out on Feb. 26, 1942. He is likely related to via the family Szpic from Chelm.

The Lazer family largely resided in Grabowiec and Chelm, however one of the brothers of my ancestor Sura Ruchla Lazer Czesner, Yaakov Lazer, moved to Radzyn Podlaski. These are three photos of his family. The entire family was murdered with the exception of one son who had gone to Israel prior to the war.







CHELM, POLAND

Jews began to settle in Chelm as early as the late Middle Ages, becoming the largest part of the Chelm community. To the north of the Market Square was a Jewish district that came about as early as the end of the 16th Century. In 1921, out of a total population of 23,221 there were 1,369 Orthodox Christians (Ukrainian and Belarusians), 9,492 Roman Catholics (Poles), 12,064 Jews, and 207 Lutherans (Germans). The Jewish population in 1939 was approximately 18,000.

The small synagogue was constructed from 1912-194 in Wesola Street. It was used by the Jewish community until WWII. Next to the synagogue is a Rabbi's house, built in 1914. The main synagogue was built at the end of the 16th Century and existed until WWII on the corner of Krzywa and Szkolna Streets. The old synagogue was torn down by the Germans.

Details of what occurred during the Holocaust years are available here, but much information is still unknown. A pre-war (and incorrect) property list is available here. It does not list my great-great-grandparents, who lived at Ogrodowa 7. Please visit the website of the Chelm Organization of Israel and my memorial website for Jewish Chelm.

FAMILY DESCENDANTS

The Lazer family has descendants in Israel and the United States.

SURNAME MEANINGS

The surname Lazer was a variant of Lazar. It originates from a personal name of Aramaic origin, a reduced form of the Hebrew male personal name Elazar, composed of the elements El or 'God' + azar or 'help'. The surname means "May God help him" or "God has helped" (i.e., by granting a son). I have also seen the surname spelled Lazar and Lazerow.

The surname Ajzen (Aizen) is a variant of Eisen. It's either 1) a metonymic occupational name for an ironworker or smith, from the Polish variant of the Middle High German eisen, or "iron", or 2) An ornamental name from the Yiddish cognate ayzn.

The surname Zysberg translates to "sweet mountain." The name was pronounced "Zeese-berg".
