Hello to all the Weiners visiting this website,
my name is Lucie Trpikova, I am 26, Czech. My mother Magda, comes from the Weiners family, orginating from Telè, Czech Republic. Telè was a part of Protektorat Boehmen und Maehren. My grandpa, Frantisek Weiner, was a son of Viktor Weiner and Marie, born Jakubcova, both from Telc. They had, as far as I know, 5 children, Viktor, Karel Frantisek, Marie and Bedøiška. Parents dindt survive the war and the holocaust, the children, with some difficulties, did. My grandpa, who was born in 1925, during the war, was in a labour camp, he escaped with a friend. He rarely talks about his memories, so I dont know many details. I know the family was huge, it lost many family mambers, some fo the died in camps, some of them might have escaped, maybe over the ocean, and may never have refound their families here in CZ. My granpa sometimes talks about his oncle,a succesful and known attorney from Prague, as he went there for holidays, and others. Some of the Weiners may have left Telc already in 19th century or in thirties, during the crisis. It would be nice to hear anything from people, who think they might be our family. My grandpa is already in his 80 and sick. I wish I could surprise him with the information. For myself, it is quite important, too. Being Weiner from one half and being partly Italian from my fathers side, having no contacts with no ancestors, I feel like I need to refind my own identity.
I wish, I could find some of family members, exchnage an information, who we are and where we live now. And wish luck to all the others looking.
