Mark,

Have you tried the archives of the Kansas City Star for mention of these
families? Or have you found out whether there was a Jewish newspaper there
at the time?

Can someone help me identify the town where this Yeshiva was in

Holocaust Lists: Polish Jews after World War II #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

This week, I visited the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, Ohio USA
(http://huc.edu/aja/) in search of Holocaust lists of Jews born in Poland.
I discovered that they have a huge collection of lists, including many that
I believe are held nowhere else. Here are just a few of the lists in their
collection:

Very detailed lists of Polish survivors in Sweden, with indication of
relatives overseas (document D56n5):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/SurvSwe.jpg

Polish survivors (especially children) who were in Iran after the war
(document D56n9):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/Iran.jpg

Telegrams sent to Jews in Poland during World War II (including "my" towns
of Radomsko and Czestochowa; documents H277n2):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/TelegCzesto.jpg
http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/Cables.jpg

Survivors at many different camps (document D56n1):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/SurvList.jpg

Witnesses contacted by the World Jewish Archives for potential testimony for
war crimes (document C203n6):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/Witness.jpg

Survivor lists for many cities in Poland, including Czestochowa (document
D55n5):

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0311.AJA/SurvCzesto.jpg

Radio broadcasts within Poland, showing survivors trying to communicate with
family (document H277n2):

Polish survivors in the USSR after the war (document H277n7):

Perhaps some of these document will be of interest to readers.

Lithuanian teacher asks help re: Jews from Dotnuva #lithuania

David Hoffman <DBH12345@...>
 

Dear Fellow Litvaks,

Mr. Rytas Tamasuskas, a Lithuanian teacher, has written to the LitvakSIG
asking for help in collecting material about the Jews of Dotnuva and
Slapaberze in the Kedainiai Region, for a project for his secondary
school and an article for a local newspaper. Mr. Tamasuskas is an
experienced researcher who has documented Lithuanian history, customs,
language and folklore over the past 22 years in more than 200 papers and
publications. He has written a manuscript for a book, "In the Land of
Dotnuva"; and in 2000 he received a prize for local folklore studies in
Kedainiai. He is included in "Who's Who in Kaunas County" and his work
is on the Internet (in Lithuanian). His current project is entitled,
"Own and/or Strangers: Neighbors, Lithuanians and the Jews."

The project is partially financed by the Foundation for Educational
Change and the International Commission for the Evaluation of the Crimes
of the Nazi and Soviet Occupation Regime in Lithuania, and he is
collaborating with Arnus Vaicekauskas of the Department of Ethnology and
Folklore of the Vytautas Magnus University, and Roza Bieliauskiene of
the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum in Vilnius.

He has already interviewed local people >from Dotnuva and Slapaberze
about Jewish life and customs, and says, "There are various
nationalities and religions in Dotnuva and around it. [In] Making
acquaintance with the Jews' national community and culture and mode of
life I try to foster their memory and tolerance. I want to accumulate
writings, documents and recollections about the Jews in Dotnuva."

Mr. Tamasuskas hopes to hear >from those whose ancestors are >from this
area, and can also handle short texts in Russian, German and Yiddish and
is assisted by a fellow teacher with English translations.

In response to my questions, he indicated that materials gathered in the
project would be made available to be used by Jewish genealogists for
research and for inclusion on shtetlinks and personal family history
webpages.

Contact him by email at rt@xxx.lt <mailto:rt@xxx.lt> and his address is
Rytas Tamasaukas, Jaunimo 2, Akedemija Secondary School, LT-58053,
Lithuania/Lietuva.

To my question, "Can anybody help me identify an image of an

several
kind list members >from Australia to Israel have confirmed that
this was the
Cathedral Road, synagogue. In the words of one:

"....the [print] is the Cathedral Road Shul in Canton, Cardiff.
It
was closed in the 80's but the facade was kept and incorporated
into a block
of offices for lawyers.
You now enter an office complex through the front arch which
bears the

All that's needed now is to pin down exactly the dates from
building to
redevelopment, another writer said the end was after 1986.
