There is a new research center that opened recently in Wurzburg, German to
assist in the search for Jewish roots in Germany. The "Ephraim Gustav
Hoenlein Genealogy Project" is designed to help Jews of Germanic descent
trace their origins, and is a joint project of the Ronald S. Lauder Fdtn and
the Jewish community of Wurzburg.
The Center is named for Ephraim Hoenlein who fled Nazi Germany with his
family and immigrated to America.
The Lauder Fdtn has been active in Wurzburg for three years; Rabbi Binjamin
Krauss is director of the foundation's Frankfurt Center. The focus of the
new center is to build connections with the past; Lauder programs in Germany
have previously focused on building a new generation of Jews with knowledge
The Center will accept donations >from people who wish to use its sservices,
e.g. simple inquiries to requests for help in fixing up certain places or in
creating a family tree.
Archivist Michael Schneeberger will oversee the work of the new center.
Queries will be processed through the Lauder office in Frankfurt, at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 011 494 69 7137 460, or fax at 011 49 69
