Jewish Orphans in Ansbach #general

Fritz Neubauer
 

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung of January 27./28, 2001 (published in Munich)
printed an article on how >from January 1946 to April 1949 about 350 Jewish
orphans, mostly >from Hungary, spent three years in a former sanatorium
with the name Strueth (with umlaut) on the outskirts of the Bavarian city
of Ansbach. Their trip to Israel had been held up by the ban on
immigration and the Americans found this former hospital for them. The
inhabitants were 6 to 18 years old at the time. The only names mentioned
in the article are Eli Scharz, Jehuda Moskovits and Yosef Ben-Porat as
teachers. Anybody interested is welcome to contact me.

"Neighbors , the destruction of a Jewish Community" now- available #latinamerica

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

The book you've been hearing about, reading about, talking about
....originally published in Polish, soon to be released in English, is now
available on the JewishGenMALL at a discounted pre-publication price of
$18.95 plus shipping and handling.

Jan Gross' "Neighbors", is the chilling tale of one summer day in 1941
when half the Polish town of Jedwabne murdered the other half. 1,600
Jewish men, women and children murdered not by the Nazis as many believed,
(and as many would have the world continue to believe) but by their Polish
neighbors who destroyed all but seven of the town's Jews.

The author puts together a shocking and brutal story >from eyewitness
accounts remembered well by locals but forgotten by history. His
investigation reads like a detective story, putting truth to the often told
lie.

"Neighbors, the Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne" will be
available in April, but because of expected interest the JewishGenMALL is
accepting advance orders.

Jews in Catholic records #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Oh, how I wish that Jews were indeed listed in the Catholic vital
records. The Mormon holdings include Catholic records >from many
Galician districts but, alas, I have combed each of them for some
hopeful signs and found nothing. Please do not rush out and re-do this
very tedious task. There were Jewish records in Przemysl.....it appears
that the Catholic Church set up a separate registration process for
Jews. The actual records are on Catholic forms but they seem to have
been in separate volumes. Thus, if the Mormons did film them (which
they have not done to date), the records would be listed under Poland,
"Vital Records, Jewish." I have also seen early death records for the
town of Tyczyn near Rzeszow which are housed in the Lviv Archives. These
early records are somewhat terse, giving very little useful information
apart >from the name, age at death and cause of death.

Rather, I think that the missing Jewish records pre-1877 suggest that
Catholics didn't really want the responsibility for registering Jews and
chose not to bother with it in most districts. Krakow will always be an
exception in any discussion because for much of the Galician period,
Krakow was a city-state and often followed a path for obtaining
information that was particular to that city. Even after Krakow was
absorbed by Austria, the city was not fully integrated into Galician
ways.

Departure Point from Brody - Anshell's Inn #ukraine

haflo <haflo@...>
 

With regard to Brody as a central point in the exodus of Jews >from the
Russian Empire -
When my grandfather made his "exit" >from Cherkassy, Kiev, arrangements were
made by the “Paris Committee” which sent the boat tickets to the “Russian
Committee” in St. Petersburg. The whole family travelled to Brody via
Radomysl in order to see him off. They were to pick up the boat tickets
from an agent in Brod, and proceed to Antwerp via Vienna (?). All of them
stayed at Anshell’s Inn on the main street of Brody.

Has anyone ever heard any mention of "Anshell's Inn" before? Is there any
possibility that it still exists, or, if not, are records ever kept of old
inns? Who were the owners? I'd appreciate any information that might help
to shed more light about this place. Did emigrants usually stop over there,
or is there a possibility that the owners were personally connected to my
family in some way?

Hag Sameach,

I'm new here, so I'm trying to find my ancestors in Vitebsk. That is very

MODERATOR NOTE: Here are some basic JewishGen resources to
help the search. First, read Warren Blatt's JewishGen FAQ at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/faq.html>. Next, take a
look at JewishGen InfoFiles about Belarus at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/#Belarus>. The Belarus
SIG <http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/> has information that
will be helpful and they have a separate Discussion Group which
you can subscribe to at <http://www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs.htm>.
And lastly, enter your family surnames and ancestral towns on the
JewishGen Family Finder at <http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/>. This
lets all people searching the same names and/or towns to locate you.

Searching for information on Olga (nee FRANKL) KASTNER b.1917 & her little son Oskar? #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

Would anybody have information on Olga (née FRANKL) KASTNER & her son
Oskar: b: 01 November 1917 Duernback, district Oberwart, Burgenland
(E. of Vienna), Austria?

She married Gustav "Gus" KASTNER, on Oct. 25, 1936, in Vienna, Austria.

They had a son Oskar Kastner, who was born on August 30, 1936, in Vienna.

Records show that, in 1936, this family was living at:
2nd District, Praterstrasse, Vienna

Gustav worked in a (grocery?) store in Vienna at that time.

In 1938, when Hitler overran Austria, Gustav was deported to Dachau,
along with his brother Max Kastner. They were later released, and both
came to Montreal, Canada.

Records show the following details on Olga & Oskar, after 1938:

19 February 1941 Olga & Oskar (both living at Schreigasse , Wien 2)
were deported to the Kielce, Poland, Ghetto.
(The Kielce Ghetto was liquidated & most inhabitants sent to Treblinka,
between Aug. 20-24, 1942.)

Gustav's daughter, >from his 2nd marriage (in Canada), would be grateful
to have more information on the brother, whom she never knew - Oskar,
and on his mother, as well. Plus any further information on Gustav.

Please contact me, if you can help her:
