Re: Who lived in the shetls? #general

Perhaps this is a silly question, but, did only Jews live in the Shetls
found using the Shetl seeker?
Shtetls (literally "small towns") were established during the colonization
period (16th and 17th centuries) of the Poland Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Shtetl had a unique character - it was not an agricultural village and was
not qualified as a town proper either due mostly to the small population.

A unique features that have characterized shtetls were their economical
activities - concentration of the merchants/trade people and the marketplace
(known as Rynek) were residents of the surrounding villages could
sell/exchange their agricultural products and the livestock, and procure
'town' items manufactured locally or imported by shtetls dwellers.

Another unique feature of a shtetl was its "neutral ground" character,
located between the Polish (Roman Catholic) and the Ukrainian or Belarusian
(Russian Orthodox or Greek Catholic) population.

Shtetls were known in Polish, Russian or Ukrainian as miasteczko,
miestiechko, mistechko and even during the interwar period of Poland (refer
to 1929 Poland Business Directory on line), miasteczko has been given an
official status as an administration unit. Other interwar Polish
administration units were: district towns, towns and parishes.

BTW, the most famous of all the Jewish shtetls, shtetl Belz, was actually a
town, not a "miasteczko".

Not all miasteczka were Jewish - there are several small places established
by the German and other colonists. Jewish shtetls were populated by other
nationalities and they were generally governed by the other than Jewish
people - in some instances (especially in Galicia) there were also Jewish
mayors.

"Shtetl" name can be a bit confusing nowadays. We are all rationally
referring to a "shtetls" as the general name of the localities were our
ancestors were originated from, even when they have been in the past
residents >from such large cities as Krakow, Lwow, Wilno or Warszawa.

ShtetlSeeker database is East and Central Europe extract >from the US BGN
(United States Board of the Geographical Names) large worldwide database.
Not all localities listed in the ShtetlSeeker had Jewish population in the
past, actually localities with known Jewish population constitute very small
portion of all places listed.

Lodz Ghetto Photos #poland #lodz

meretz
 

An exhibition of Lodz ghetto photos taken by Henryk Ross, the official Lodz
Ghetto photographer, was recently shown at the Prague Langhans gallery.
Henryk Ross took 6,000 photos during his stay in the ghetto. Prior to the
ghetto's liquidation, he succeeded to bury the negatives. Henryk Ross
survived and unearthed the negatives >from the ghetto area after the war.
The exhibition opened in Prague to commemorate the 5,000 Czech Jews sent
from Prague to the Lodz Ghetto in Poland during the Second World War. Only
227 Czech Jews survived the experience and returned to Bohemia. Many Jews
were deported to Lodz >from Vienna as well.
Please see http://www.radio.cz/en/article/62330
The Prague exhibition has already been closed on February 19, 2005, but it
was planned to travel to Amsterdam, Milan and Lodz.
Timothy Prus, the curator for the Archive of Modern Conflict in London,
which now holds the Ross photo collection, has edited a book on Ross' work,
called Lodz Ghetto Album. The photos shown in the exhibition were a
selection >from this Album.

Thank you Sylvia for drawing my/our attention to this website. Not only
did
I access the Times newspaper archives, but I also managed to get access
to
all the records on Ancestry.com via a site called Ancestry Plus which is
also listed and available! There are other useful databases available
too. I
tried to access the digital image of a biography of a distant relative
who
has an entry in Who's Who in America, but unfortunately this attempt was
not
successful. If anyone finds that it is possible to access such images,
then
please let us know. I have made some good progress in other areas,
however,
thanks to this new tool. It's a shame the offer has to end so soon!!!

Dear All,

Just in case you haven't fathomed out just HOW to take advantage of the
one
week free UK Times newspaper search, here is how to get in and search:

http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/itsbtrial

password = graphics

scroll down to Times Digital Archive link and clik on it to
search

Its great - I've found several references to family members. My only
criticism would be that the print is very small, and doesn't enlarge
well
(once saved to file).

Enjoy!

Arnold Samlan
 

Hello.I am new to this list, and wanted to introduce myself. My name is
Arnold Samlan. My grandmother, Rae (Rachel) Shenker and her sister, Jennie
Shenker immigrated >from England to Montreal in the early 1900's. Rae married Abe
Samlan, while Jennie married Hyman Altman.

There is some conjecture that Jennie and Rae might have been in an
orphanage, and came to Canada to be raised by family, but it's not completely clear.

There is also evidence that their parents were Hyman and Fannie. The only
Hyman Shenker I've found >from that period in England thus far is one listed on a
census in Lancashire.

Any help in tracking down infrormation about their British roots and their
move to Canada would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Klaus EICHENWALD or REICHER-KAMPUS #latinamerica

Drovs@t-online.de <Drovs@...>
 

For my friend I'm looking for her younger brother KLAUS EICHENWALD. In
JGFF and FTJP he's mentioned twice, but those who posted his name there
don't know anything more about him.
Klaus was born May 20th 1933 in Billerbeck/Westfalia - Germany as the
son of Siegfried Eichenwald, called Fritz, and Hilde, née Hertz. His
sister Marion was born in May 1929 in Billerbeck, too. The family
escaped for La Paz - Bolivia in February 1940. Marion saw him last in
the early fifties in La Paz. She and her husband Juan would be very very
happy to get any information about Klaus. He has probably taken the name
"REICHER-KAMPUS" or so. Who ever met Klaus Reicher-Kampus, née
Eichenwald and can tell anything about his fate?
