My grandparents came to the US from Dembitz before
My grandfather was Abraham Daar and his wife was Feiga Taffet.
They had three children, whose descendents now number about 25. (If
people are interested I can make a family tree.)
On the Taffet side, my
cousin Mike (Isidore) survived the camps and came to the US after the
war. He presently has a claim outstanding for the apartment building
which was owned by his father before the war.
Other Daars I have contacted include Henry Daar of Chicago whose
Grandparents also came from Dembitz, and Moishe Daar who was born in
Dembitz, and grew up in France, escaped from France during the war and
is now a psychiatrist residing in Switzerland. His daughter recently
recently married a Swede who is taking the name Daar.

My father Irving (Oizerd) Daar and his family were born in Debica and
lived there. On the death list from yivo I saw the name of his brother
Feivel Daar and family. also in the family from there were Gewirtz and
Wilner. Mendel Wilner was mentioned in an article from the Debica paper
in the articles on the web.
I was wondering if there is any more mention of any of the Daar family
from Poland. My grandfather Henich Gewirtz was born in Austria Hungary
and in l9l4 he took his family of 6 children on a trip to Poland. They
were caughtthere when the was started and escaped to london. I have a
paper that says he went to the consulate an d that he was a Austrian
There are many Daar family members in the us but noone seems to know
anything about the europeanmembers.
I would appreciate any help. If you need any more information, I can
give you more names of Daars that were of the family in Poland.
