Name variation, GRUNER #galicia

Joseph Hirschfield
 

Gruener is a variation of Gruner where an umlaut over the "u" would
be normally used. When an umlaut is omitted, such as in English
spellings, an "e" is adding to the spelling. Same for Roemer, which
is the same as Romer with an umlaut over the "o."

JGS of Georgia November Meeting #general

Sandi Goldsmith
 

Film: Image Before My Eyes

When: Sunday, November 12, 2006

Time: 1:30 PM
(library opens at 1:00)

Where: Cuba Genealogy Center
(at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum)
1440 Spring St. NW, Atlanta, GA

Before World War II, Poland was the largest and most important center of
Jewish creativity, scholarship, and culture in the world. Jews had lived in
Poland since the twelfth century, and in 1939, Poland's 3.5 million Jews
comprised about one-tenth of the population.

Image Before My Eyes depicts the full spectrum of Jewish life in Poland-
from remote villages and small towns to major cities, >from the traditionally
pious to the ardently secular. It shows the great range of Jewish involvement in
political and cultural movements such as bundism, Zionism, and anarchism,
and in the creation and sustenance of educational and social institutions.
Through interviews, photographs, and rare and remarkable film footage, the film
pieces together a warm and evocative portrait of Jewish life in Poland between
the wars. 90 mins.

JGSG, Breman Members: No Charge
Non-members: $5 (Please pay at the door.)

The WALDES family #austria-czech

Carole Harter <ch.harter@...>
 

I've been told that my grandmother, Rosa WALDES, and her siblings,
Anna, Max, Julius, and Ottokar were born in Linz in the late 1800s.
According to family story, the parents of these children were Sigmund and
Agnes WALDES >from what is now the Czech Republic.

Thanks to a second cousin, a grandson of Max, I know he and his wife
died in the early 1940s and are buried in Vienna. The internet has a listing
for Julius in the same cemetery. But none of our remaining family members
knows anything about this family before the early 1900s when Rosa and, a
little later, Anna came to America. How can I find information about this
family's history? Help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Meeting of Austria-Czech members in Vienna, 21 October 2006 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Thank you Ruth for your nice summary of our Austria-Czech SIG dinner in Vienna.
Saturday Oct 21st 2006 was indeed a day to remember as over 40 of us met at
Restaurant Smutny, Vienna for a great evening.

Any fears that we would find it hard to get on with each other were soon
dispelled. The guests arrived very early, >from 6pm onwards, and the last left
at about 11.30 pm - it was hard to find a slot in the conversation.

Eleanor Feitler wrote to me: {btw Eleanor and Joe won the prize for the most
relatives in the room!]: <How nice that names became "Faces"... The second
time in my life such a marvelous event occurred.">.

We all had badges so we could recognise each other. At 7pm, I went through the
entire list of guests with a brief introduction, so we all knew who was who.
Within an hour, people kept coming up to me and asking "when is our *next*
meeting?"

Traude Triebel brought along a wonderful chocolate cake with the logo
Austria-Czech SIG on the icing. Thank you Traude. After our delicious dinner,
Joe Feitler, who had left Vienna when he was a teenager never to return till
that week [he was invited back to Vienna by the Jewish Welcome service], cut
the cake, resplendent with candles, in a symbolic ceremony.

We had a short speech by Elizabeth ben David-Hindler about her rememberance
work in the Leopoldstadt. Anyone who requires details please let me know.
Barbara Kintaert was also present - you may remember she organised a plaque on
her house in the Servitengasse for the residents who were holocaust victims.
Sundry other Viennese came along too, associated with the press, MA08 {Wiener
Stadt und Landes Archiv], genealogy, anthropology or related tangentially to
Austria-Czech SIG members.

On Sunday, Herman Karplus took us on a wonderful walk through the Zentral
Friedhof Tor 1. The weather was perfect. Thank you Herman on behalf of all of
us. The one hour walk extended into a three hour ramble followed by lunch for
some of us. Here is the list of Austria-Czech SIG members who attended [some
came with husbands or wives]:

Natalie and Stefan Cantini [Austria]
Ruth Coman [UK]
Wolf-Erich Eckstein [Austria]
Joe and Eleanor Feitler [US] and family
Hanus Grab [Germany]
Heinz Hadwig [Austria]
Andreas Inhofner [Austria] [Galicia SIG]
Erika Kalkhofen-Frahne [Germany]
Herman Karplus [Austria]
Celia Male [UK]
Fred Posamentir {Austria]
Peter Rath [Austria]
Gerard Reach [France]
Charlie Roberts [UK]
Traude Triebel [Austria]

We really missed Sally Goodman [Palm Springs] who was so looking forward to
this dinner, but last minute sickness in the family caused her to cancel the
European trip. We wish all the Goodman family a speedy recovery.

And this reminds me - I still have not posted an account of our historic lunch
meeting in Herzlia in March. That was just as exciting as the Vienna dinner in
a totally different homely atmosphere of Hans Weigl's house and garden. I
really will have to write that up next.

Although we are an internet group, meeting the SIG members really does make a
big difference!
