SITE CITE - Massbach and Poppenlauer sites #germany


Elizabeth Levy <ealevygen@...>
 

Dear Gersig Friends,

I have just been notified by a wonderful German man, Mr. Reinhard Klopf,
that he has put a site on the web with information about the Massbach,
Bavaria Jewish community. There is general information about the Jewish
community and a number of people listed who lived there. The site is in
German.

For those interested in the area of Massbach, the site is
www.massbacher-juden.de.

Reinhard lives in Poppenlauer and has also made a webpage about the Jews of
Poppenlauer and put out a detailed book "Juden in Poppenlauer" which
contains all the archival material found in the local archive on the Jews of
Poppenlauer. He sent me a copy because my Friedmann ancestors lived there.
It was a very small Jewish community but other names listed include:


GRUENEBAUM, GRUENBAUM
HEINEMANN
HIRSCH
KREMER, KRAEMER
KLAU
REIS
WEIL

I am happy to help out anyone with questions about these families however, I
would prefer not to get "wildcard" requests. If you know that your family
with these names lived in Poppenlauer, I will happily copy what I have for
you. (My apologies but I am very busy these days!) I have asked Reinhard
to allow me to provide a copy for the Central Archives for the History of
the Jewish People in Jerusalem and he happily agreed so a copy is now
available there as well.

If you visit www.reinhardklopf.de you can find information on the
Poppenlauer Jewish community as well. Best regards to all,

Elizabeth Levy Mevassaret Zion, Israel <ealevygen@...>
