dear Danzigers,
I have been researching for some time for the hospital records of Arpad
LOSCH, born 1897 in Budapest. He was a patient at the hospital in
Kocoborowo, Poland in (suburb of Gdansk) 1939. He was my father.
Starting Sept. 22,1939, as the war actives were going on they started to
take out with trucks,patients under escort of the SS with the the pretext
of transfering patients and those needing care to other hospitals.
First men, then women and children to the SZPREGAWSKIE FORERST where they
were murdered, shot to death. Also in this forest were thousands of people
from Gdansk who were arrested by the nazis and shot. All were buried in
mass graves.

On the 22 july,1941, 500 patients were taken by train to Arsdorf, Pirna
Sonnenstein in Saksony where they were killed in gas chambers very soon
afterwards. The number of patients who remained were constantly
dercreasing . mortality; the main reason was hunger. Polish patients were
given minimal rations of food.

The documents concerning the transport of these persons were sent to
Berlin. I've been VERY unsuccessful in locating these records.

In Oct,2002, my husband and I traveled to Gdansk, to the SZPEGAWSKIE FOREST.
The cab driver knew exactly where to take us. As we reached a clearing
there is a large old sign .(in need of repair that states in 3 languages)"
HERE IN SZPEGAWSKI,THE NAZIS EXTERMINATED AROUND 6 THOUSAND POLISH AND
JEWISH INHABITANTS OF STAROGARD GDANSKI AND ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD THE VICTIMS

PIASNICA,SZPEGAWSK IS THE LARGEST CEMENTARY OF THE NAZSI GENOCIDE VICTIMS IN
POMORZE."

On this trip we also visited the National city archives, I had Emailed them
prior. No luck for what I was looking for. Some of the old city records
are now kept in Gydia. The office is about to close for the day and I
persuaded them to make a formal request >from Gydia archives if they had
records for ARPAD Losch. About 1 year later they responded that they did
not have the records that i was seeking.

I hope this inf. helps you in your search.

Hello Danzigers,

I have reason to believe >from family lore that my great grandfather
Froim LANGUS son of Srol and Bejla DANOWSKY was living in Gdansk around
the time WW2 broke out. Prior to that, he lived both in Rajgrod and
Grajewo, Poland (Lomza Gubernia) as well as Przerosl or Filipow (Suwalki
Gub).
He would have been about 60+ years old. Froim's wife was Dwejra GABELMAN
daughter of Eliasz and Ruchel FAJNTUCH. She died well before the war.

I was told Froim tried to leave Gdansk, but was too late and in fact sent
a
postcard to the family in Cleveland, Ohio that said, "sorry I will miss the
wedding, but it's too late to come." That was code, because there was no
wedding and he was letting the family know it was impossible to leave
Europe.
He was not heard >from again, so it's assumed he was murdered in the Shoah.
I'm hoping a member of my family will have a copy of this postcard, but so
far no luck finding it.

I read with interest Logan Kleinwaks email in this SIG about the Gdansk
Pinkas HaKehillot. He mentioned there were about 395 Jews who were
deported >from Danzig to the "General Government" and 200 inhabitants of
old age homes who were deported to Theresienstadt.

My question to the group is whether there is a list published anywhere
about
the 200 inhabitants of the old age homes; the name of the homes; the 395
Jews who were deported and details about their transport to
Theresienstadt.

I'm also curious why they would have been sent to Theresiendstadt, given
it's a lot further away than Auschwitz or Treblinka.

Thank you,

Emanuel LASKER - mathematician and chess world champion #germany

isak@bm.technion.ac.il
 

Dear GerSig members
I am trying to establish the genealogy of 2 of the LASKER family,
Emanuel LASKER (1868-1941), the mathematician and chess world champion
and of Edward LASKER (1885-1976), an American and world chess master.
Emanuel Lasker was born in Berlinchen (now Barlinek in Poland) to the
cantor Adolf Lasker. He was the brother-in-law of the Elsa
LASKER-SCHUELER. Edward was born I think in Breslau, and emigrated to
the US after WWI. Both of them, and also Eduard LASKER (1829-1884), the
Prussian politician, were presumably descendants of Meir HENDLIS,
son-in-law of Itzik Goldes of Lask. The early genealogy of the
descendants of Itzik Goldes is described in the book "Ir Lask
Ve'Chachameiha" by Pinchas Zelig Gliksman. So far I could not find the
exact lineage of Emanuel and Edward LASKER. There is a book: Helmut
Lasker and Rabbi M. Oppenheim, "Darstellende Genealogie der Familie
Laser", Berlin ?(probably 1930s), Leo Baeck Institute, New York, which I
have never seen. However, I do not think that it contains any
information concerning these two Laskers (Emanuel and Edward). Does
anybody have any idea where else I could look for more info ?

Any help will be greatly acknowledged

Israel and Hannah STERN, Cincinnati, 1880 #germany

Johanna Voss <joh@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I need your help.
I am searching for Israel STERN and his family, who emigrated to the
United States some time between 1852 and 1857.
Now I found a record of the United States Census of 1880 , where a
Israel STERN appears, who might be the one, I am looking for.

This is what I found in the record:

Israel STERN, born 1824 in Germany (birthdate matches)
Hannah STERN, born 1842 in Germany (name of his wife is different, but
perhaps his 1st wife died.)
children:
Kauffman STERN, born 1854 in Germany (name of son matches; he also is
to old to be Hannahs son)
Isabelle STERN born 1861, Ohio
Josephine STERN born 1864, Indiana
Chas STERN born 1868, Ohio
Louis STERN born 1874, Ohio
Eddie STERN born 1877, Ohio

In 1880 the family lived in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio

This is what I know about "my" Israel STERN:

Israel STERN, born February- 10-1824 in Stammheim/ Hesse
son of Kaufmann and Jachet STERN

married Betta Meier (Meyer) born 1834 in Altenstadt/Hesse
children: Kaufmann, born 1853 in Altenstadt - Saara, born 1857 in Altenstadt

Israel STERN probably was a butcher

about his emigration I have two contradictory informations:
1. He and his family emigrated in 1852
2. They moved away in 1857

Does anybody of you know something about this STERN family or is
related to them?
Or can help me to find out more about the family in Cinncinati?
I will be grateful for any advice or information. Kind regards,

Johanna Voss Florstadt /Hesse, Germany

Searching for: STERN, CASSEL, BECKER, HESSENBERGER, KAHN, REISS and
others >from Stammheim and Staden /Hesse
I am working on a publication about the Jewish families of this two villages.

INTRO- researching VALFER - Friesenheim,Germany #germany

Leia Jaffa <leiajaffa@...>
 

Hello GerSig
I have been doing genealogy research for about 5 years, but I am still a bit
of a novice, particularly with the Internet.
I live in London. With the help of family members and oral history, I have
traced my maternal ancestors - GEISMAR, Breisach; WEIL ,Kippenheim
BRAUNSCHWEIG-BECK, Loerrach, and with the help of the wonderful Werner Frank,
have linked into his family tree going back to the Maharam of Rothenburg.

However, I have not been so fortunate with my paternal ancestors.
My paternal grandmother was Bertha SCHMIDT >from Mannheim(1872-1949).
My paternal grandfather Isaac VALFER(1865-1940) and his family were wine
manufacturers and merchants in Gengenbach, Baden,but my ggrandfather Jakob
Hirsch Zvi VALFER originated >from Friesenheim, Baden.

Jakob HirschVALFER is buried in the cemetery in Offenburg,Baden,(d.o.b.
1837? d.o.d 1904) where it states that his wife was Hannchen Bloch. His
Hebrew name is given as Jakob Zvi ben Ahorn (sic) Arie. I assume that Ahorn
Arie VALFER is buried in Schmieheim cemetery, and would have been born
around 1807.

My grandfather had several brothers and sisters, Anna,Sophie, Ludwig, Adolf
and Sigmund. I am in contact with 3 branches of the family, but cannot trace
a 4th branch , and would like to make contact with them. They emigrated to
Johannesburg in South Africa. My father's cousin Lina (Linnchen) VALFER
married a WEIS or WEISS, she had a daughter Fanny who married a BORMANN in
Johannesburg in 1947.

I have been unable to trace any further information about my gggrandfather
and his family history.

The family names that I am researching are: GEISMAR , Breisach; WEIL, Kippenheim;
BECK , Loerrach; BLOCH, Kirchen;
but particularly VALFER, Gengenbach and Friesenheim; SCHMIDT , Mannheim

Any help with the information I am searching for would be gratefully appreciated.
Best wishes

Finding a death Certificate #general

LAWRENCE RUBIN
 

I'm tying to find my GGF Morris Rubin's death certificate. born: abt
1865 -(8)
He lived in NYC, was listed in the 1920 Fed census but not in the 1930
census. He may have been listed in a city directory in 1925. I checked the
on line NYC death index but none matched - the only 2 that were close (I
have DC copies in my possession but it is not my relative).

He may have died outside the city limits? maybe another state? who knows.
Please advise what steps I can take to find his death certificate and
eventually find where is is buried?

many thanks,
