Thought I'd add a footnote from New Orleans. My daughter
Rachel found the Struma story somewhat by accident.
At that time she noticed the name was spelled Stoliar,
not Stolier. She told me about it and I did an internet
search and indeed was able to contact David.
My name is Alan Stolier. My grandfather Abraham
Stolier (a tailor) emigrated from the Ukraine in the
early 1900's escaping anti-Semitism. Until then I
was unaware of anyone else in the USA with this name.
Despite a lack of common origin I did contact David
by email. He was unaware at that time of any relatives
in Ukraine, and it has gone no further.
I wonder if the correct spelling is Stolier or Stoliar?
It's intriguing how we search for our roots and when
we discover even a glimmer or a slight crack in the
door, it makes us feel that our lives are just a bit
