Questions about German reparation fund for forced laborers #hungary

Sara Wenger <sara_wenger@...>
 

In Haaretz there was an article today entitled:
"70,000 survivors to get 2,556 euros in reparations" 
http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/spages/443435.html
 
Does anyone know how to get more information about
this fund and who is entitled to the reparations?
 
My late father was a holocaust survivor who never
collected any reparations out of principle (so he
said). However I later found out that he had had to
change his name and identity to enter Canada after the
war and logic would say that he actually couldn't
apply for reparation for fear of being deported.
 
Through my genealogical search I have found huge
families that I never knew a thing about and it has
started to embroil me as to how their estates and
business were stolen and my father never received any
compensation whatsoever. Above and beyond that, he/we
actually suffered financially through the years and
could have really used the money.
 
So my question is - is there any fund that I can claim
as an heir to a Holocaust survivor? (He was Hungarian
and deported to Auschwitz as a teenager) Any
compensation that I can claim would not touch what was
stolen >from my father but it might help to vindicate
to some extent the irreplacable loss.

The Statistical Bureau (Statisztikai Hivatal) has the results of the
censuses of Hungary (including Budapest). I believe data is available
for 1941. The individual sheets for individuals, if they survived, are
probably stored by them or their library/archives. Write them.

Info request on Jewish Olomouc #general

Aaron Zelcer <azelcer@...>
 

Shalom,

This message is a bit off-topic, but I hope you will bear with us. We
will be visiting Olomouc for several days (July 8th-12th) on occasion
of a scientific meeting, and we are looking for information on Jewish
activities and Jewish monuments in the city and surrounding region. We
don't have ancestors in the area, and our interest is not religious,
but rather historical and cultural. We will be grateful if you could
provide some source of information (web sites, addresses, etc.)

Thanks in advance,

Re: Processing at Castle Garden #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

On Fri, 25 Jun 2004 14:56:35 UTC, sdriller@nyc.rr.com (Stew Driller) opined:

Does anyone know about or have a reference to the actual
processing procedure at Castle Garden.

Where did the boats land? How were immigrants conveyed to
Castle Garden? Was there any type of security? Are there
interior photos photographs of Castle Garden during the period
it was the immigration center? Were there medical exams?

There are dozens of books with such information about Ellis
Island, but I don't recall seeing similar references for
Castle Garden.

Thanks.

Your questions, and many more, can be answered very simply by doing a Google
search for "Castly Garden" (with the quotation marks, so that the two words
are understood as a sequence).

If you do not know how to do this, it is really very simple and intuitive --
and is by far the most valuable resource on the Web: The URL of Google is:
http://www.google.com

My search just now returned 19,600 hits! Not all of these are appropriate,
and some are duplicates. Still, there are plenty of links that are very much
to the point of your questions.

Google is your friend, and can make your use of the Internet much more
productive.
