JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Nasielsk - 1938 films online #general


D. Kurtz <dlkurtz@...>
 

Did your family live in Nasielsk, Poland? In 1938 my paternal grandparents David
and Liza/Lena Saltzman Kurtz traveled to Nasielsk (his town of birth) and elsewhere
in Western Europe, with their friends Louis and Rose Lillian Cohen Malina, and
Louis' sister Essie Malina Diamond (widow of David's maternal uncle Dave Diamond).
My grandfather shot 16mm films in black & white and in color. These films have been
donated to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and are available for viewing online as
part of the Steven Spielberg Film and Video Archive. They can be viewed at the link
below or search the Archive catalog for "Kurtz" or "Nasielsk."

The films include people (lots of faces, especially children), streets/street
scenes, and buildings. We are very interested in hearing >from anyone who is
familiar with Nasielsk and recognizes anything in these films - Please contact me
