Celia, be assured that that lovely word "Breugus" has not died out. My
parents, >from Vienna and before that >from Moravia, used it, (although my
father would have pronounced in "broiges") and even my Wife, with a
Latvian/Russian/English/Australian heritage, uses it. Strangely, I can't
find it in Leo Rosten's The Joys of Yiddish.
Oy!

The chief rabbi in Copenhagen 188-1891 was Abraham Wolff.
If you write what information you want precisely, I might be able
to help you.
The archives of the chief rabbi is extensive with all sorts of
documents (vital records, letters, articles, sermons etc. etc.)

records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen during this time,
There are some records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen,
however there was no official registration of immigrants for a very
long period, so it is not easy to research. I have a database based
on the ledgers for aid to "Russian" immigrants, so if there are some
specific names you are looking for I can look them up.

You can find naturalizations, some censuses and passenger lists
on the website of the Danish Demographic Database:
http://ddd.dda.dk/ddd_en.htm

and records concerning links to the Jewish community of Danzig.
I have not come accross any such records. There might be mention of
Jews >from Danzig somewhere in other records, but they are not listed
specifically.

The National Archives have an index to holdings of records of
the Jewish Community:
"Det Mosaiske Troessamfund i K=F8benhavn med nedlagte troessamfund
i provinsen - en arkivregistratur"
You can buy it >from the National Archives.
It contains a short history of the Jewish Community and explanation
of the holdings in the National Archives, which can be found at the
Scandinavia SIG's website:
http://www.jewishgen.org/scandinavia/resources.htm

But as mentioned above - write and tell us what you want to know, then
maybe some of us can help you.

Wertheim Department Store in Berlin #general

I have today discovered that I am very distantly related to the Wertheim
family >from Anklam who went on to start one of the largest department stores
in Berlin.

A book has recently been published about the family
Erica Fischer / Simone Ladwig-Winters

"Die Wertheims. Geschichte einer Familie"

Rowohlt Verlag, Berlin 2004

The review of the book says that the stories of great families are more than
private stories.

Brno #general

Richard Braun <rbraun1@...>
 

Our congregation received a torah >from the Czech Memorial Scrolls Trust
about 30 years ago. We only know that it is number 347, that it came from
Brno in what is today the Czech Republic, and that it was written in the
year 1900. We are looking for any information which would give us a clue as
to the name and hopefully a photo of the synagogue >from which this scroll
came, names of the Jewish community and survivors, and any other pertinent
data. A search though JewishGen, Czech Torah Network, MavenSearch, and links
from there has yielded some historical info but nothing sufficiently
specific that could relate directly to our scroll. Any help out there would
be appreciated.

Ecuadorian Passports issued by Consul Munoz Borrero in Sweden to Jews in Holland and in concentration camps during World War II #latinamerica

Seth Jacobson <seth@...>
 

Many Jews in countries occupied by the Nazis in World War II, in desperate
attempts to save their lives, tried to achieve foreign passports from
neutral countries. Some Latin American countries granted such requests and
issued such documents. In some cases these countries' consuls profited
personally >from this process.

Other diplomats issued such passports based on personal humanitarian
convictions. Yad Vashem has recognized several of these consuls as
"Righteous Among the Nations". But not all the cases are known. The
Ecuadorian Consul in Stockholm, Dr. Manuel Antonio Muñoz Borrero, issued
hundreds of passports to Jews living in Europe, responding to the initiative
of the local Rabbi Abraham Israel Jacobson.

We are trying to discover the facts about this, eventually presenting Yad
Vashem with a request that will include the appropriate documentation to
recognize Dr. Muñoz Borrero, post mortem, as a "Righteous Among the
Nations". With this purpose we are looking for testimonies of people that
have received or saved their lives thanks to these passports.

Any information connected to this chapter in Holocaust history will be
welcomed. More details on the project can be read at
