The fate of Eva Dag #lodz #poland

meretz
 

Dear fellow researchers,
For years have I been searching information about the final fate of my
grandmother, who was incarcerated in ghetto Lodz (please see details below).
I believe I contacted most potential sources and checked all available
lists, to no avail. Still, I would be very grateful for any additional lead
or information. Recently I have been informed by the Prague Jewish community
of an organization called "Union of Lodz Prisoners",who may have some
information. Does anybody know how this organization could be connected?

*Eva DAG/ova* was deported >from Prague to ghetto Lodz (Litzmannstadt) on 3
November 1941 with transport E. Her address in Lodz was Rembrandtstrasse 10,
probably a "Wohngemeinschaft" with other Prague deportees of her transport.
My grandmother was born 24 September 1873 in Krakow, as *Eva SCHLANG*. She
spent most of her life in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia, where she married and was
known as *Eva HORNUNG/ova*.

The ghetto address is the last information we have about her. She did not
survive. The questions we have been searching answers for, are: Did *Eva
Dag* die in Lodz a "natural" death? Was she killed in Lodz? Was she sent to
die in Auschwitz or Chelmno? When did she die?
Thanks and best regards,
Uriel Meretz, Israel

Dear list members,
My great-grandfather Sally KADEN (before MEIER, *9th may 1904 in
Hannover, Germany) died between 1944 and 1945 in Auschwitz. But there
is no information about him either in the Yad Vashem database nor in
the old german "Gedenkbuch der Opfer des Nazionalsozialismus"

Does anybody have the new one and could look for me if there are any
information about Sally KADEN?

Also I'm interested if there is any information about Emma MEIER
(*1875 in Lage), Adolf MEIER (*3rd august1877 in Lage) or Salomon MEIER
(*29th june 1879 also in Lage) in this book.

Lots of thanks for every response! Friendly regards,

Matthias Walter LEVY - Hamburg to UK or USA? #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Dear GerSIGers,
I would appreciate some help in finding Matthias Walter LEVY who was born in
Hamburg on 23 Nov 1879.

His registration card (Meldekarte) records that he emigrated to London in November
1899. However, he was not recorded in the 1901 British census, and I can find no
death record.

By 1907 a warrant had been issued for his arrest. I suspect this was because he
had evaded military service which he was due to start in January 1900.

Would someone please be able to do a quick search for him
in the early US censuses? He had relatives in New York. Many thanks,

Justin Levy, Dublin, Ireland (levyduffy@eircom.net)

Announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2007 #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards to be given to non-Jewish
Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving vestiges
of former Jewish life in their local communities, including historical
records, cultural material, cemeteries and synagogues.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers
because they feel it is the right thing to do. The preservation of Jewish material
is one of the few ways in which they can respond constructively to their
country's horrible past.

We, as Jewish genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work.
This award provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize
and honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their lifetimes
to such important endeavors.

****The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2006.****

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the seventh year for such awards, which will be given in
January 2007. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an all
expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the elegant Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be described
to attendees and to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an email to:

German-Jewish Community History Council
239 Chestnut Street

or to Lother Funke, Referat Protokoll,

Why don't you go to your local Russian Jewish social centre or cafe? When I

Kiddush goblet inscription needs translating from Hebrew to #general

Beverley Davis
 

Sally Goodman posted a beautifully clear Hebrew inscription on a
family Kiddush becher and asked for a translation.

It would seem that her great-great-grandfather, the Rabbi and
Scholar, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Rekitza, was given this cup
for his 75th birthday by his "sons and daughters and their wives and
husbands" on 5 Shevat 5642, i.e. 25 January 1882. He was therefore
born on 5 Shevat 5567, i.e. 14 January 1807.
