Lithuanian Expulsion #lithuania

clare15905@...
 

My father's family was expelled >from Anycsciai(Anixt) during WWI and
they traveled toward Tashkent. While travelling through the Russian
city of Penza, my grandmother Zelda Ita Levin Klor contracted cholera
and died. Several years ago, I was able to receive a copy of her death
certificate.

The family eventually returned to Lithuania and in 1932, they all
emigrated to Cordoba, Argentina. My father, Abraham (Klor) Clare,
emigrated to the US in 1912 and never saw his family again.

Further to my prior posting about the WWI period, there are found many
interesting facts in the press regarding the expulsion of the Jews during
WWI. For one, the Jews were given very little time to depart. It ranged
from two to twelve hours and, in one case, that of the town of Tilichany,
Belarus, the Jews were given only ten minutes.

Not only were there commentaries in the press, particularly the Jewish
press, on the expulsion of the Jews, but also the treatment of the Russian
Jews who were in Germany at the time of the War and the treatment of the
Russian Jews in various towns invaded by German troups.

Many comments made during WWI by Jews were that the Germans treated the Jews
so well that they did not envision how negatively they would be treated
during WWII.

The Press gives a somewhat different impression in various areas such as
Kalish where atrocities were perpetrated by the German army of occupation
under the command of Major Preisker with the shooting of the visiting Chief
Rabbi of Dobrzetz among other things. There were also stories >from Germany
itself where Russian Jews were mistreated. In addition, Jews fled >from such
towns as Keltzi, Petrokoff, Plotzk, and Seradz, in order to avoid the German
habit of extracting large amounts of money >from the Jewish population they
found.

Of those Russian Jews who were held in Germany, a number managed to escape
to nearby countries such as Switzland, Italy, Denmark, Belgium and Holland,
and >from there returned safely to Russia. An example is Dr. Henry B.
Sliosberg, the leading Jewish advocate in Russia, who managed to return to
Russia after being mistreated in Germany. He later left Russia in 1920
after the War and settled in Paris.

There were also Jews >from other countries such as England who were stuck in
Germany at the outbreak of the War, but managed to get out. One such
example, was Rabbi I.J. Yoffee, minister of the Manchester Central
Synagogue, who was a naturalized citizen, originally >from Lithuania. He was
able to return home safely to England after many adventures.

BRZESKO Poland- A New Digitalized Book #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

While googling my maternal surname KONIGSBUCH(this is
how it spells without the umlaut) and Brzesko I
discovered a 5 volume book called "Kronika Miasta
Brzeska 1385-1944" written by Jan Burlikowski(1912-1997).

Further search disclosed under "konigsbuch brzesko
fragmenty" a chapter about the Jewish victims in WW2
(it is a 19 pages document).Further digging disclosed
that the book is digitalized in both printed book format
(item 144) and typed manuscript format (item 145).
http://www.mbc.malopolska.pl/dlibra/editionindex?startint=142&dirids=1

There are big differences between the book format
where the Jewish names start on image 121 and the
typewritten version and the google 19 pages version.
I presume that Logan Kleinwaks will be able to sort it
out.

In any case the lists disclose quite a lot and I even
discovered a member of my tribe I was not aware of.

Remembering Robert ADLER, {Vienna 4 Dec 1913- Idaho, 15 Feb 2007} #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

We do have a "Wall of Fame" on our website which has not been updated for a
long time. Surely, here is a worthy candidate - a man whose invention we use
every day - the TV remote control?

Robert ADLER who died in February 2007 in Idaho, was born in Vienna in 1913 and
emigrated to the UK and then the USA: http://tinyurl.com/2ctk6j

http://www.zenith.com/sub_about/about_adler.html

He was reputed to have said: "People ask me all the time "Don't you feel guilty
for it?' And I say that's ridiculous, It seems reasonable and rational to
control the TV >from where you normally sit and watch television."

I have an ADLER line missing >from my family tree. My gt-gt-grandfather's sister
is referred to in correspondence only as Schwester ADLER nee BIACH.
I know there was a daughter called Leni ADLER (Helene?) as she is mentioned in
her uncle Leon BIACH´s will - but that is as far as I have got. Leni ADLER was
probably born in the 1830s in Pressburg, and I assume moved to Vienna. Did she
have other siblings? I have no idea. Those early Pressburg records are missing.


I keep looking out for ADLER links - I suppose that is akin to looking for the
remote control.

I recently came across in some of my old notes, the Obit. March,1993,
for a Yetta MARCUS SMILOWITZ of Yassi Romania. She was married to
Morris Smilowtiz. She had two sons in West Orange NJ, Bernard and
Herbert and a daughter, Dr.Rita NEWMAN of Short Hills, NJ. The reason
for my inquiry has more to do with her husband's family. My Paternal
GGF was Berel SMILOWITZ >from the Yassi area in Romania. I was wondering
if anyone knows of any connection or has any information on Yetta

Bernard KLEIN/KLAIN born +/- 1880 in Romania or Poland #romania

isabela rafalovici <isabela.rafalovici@...>
 

I am very anxious to research my grandfather's family but have very little
information to go on. I'm hoping that perhaps something will sound familiar
to someone or someone might have some suggestions as to how to proceed.

My grandfather Bernard KLEIN/KLAIN was probably born about 1880. There is
some question as to whether he was born in Romania or Poland. According to
my mother, he spoke Polish with his sisters (whose names are unknown).
Bernard died before 1946 in Bucharest.

Bernard married Rebecca Unknown (daughter of Shimon) (born 1883) and they
had the following children: Dona (born 1909); Anikutza; Leonte Miculea;
Risti and Rasela/Rachel (born 1914). The children were all born in
Bucharest. My grandparents had a laundry at 37 Sfintii Apostoli St. in
Bucharest.

Bernard's son Leon/Leonte Miculea KLEIN/KLAIN was married in Romania to
Virginica Romanovski (an artist-operetta). They were divorced and he later
married (or lived with) Lily Unknown. They lived in the States; first (I
think) in Ohio and then in Washington, DC. I have not been able to find any
records for him.

This is the extent of the information I have. If anything sounds familiar
to someone or if anyone has any suggestions as to how to proceed, I would
greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

Thank you very much for your time.

Searching for KINSBRUNNER and WEISKOPFT info #austria-czech

Leanna Shuster <lunarcleo@...>
 

Hello-

I have recently started doing more extensive research into my family
past. Now that I'm up against some roadblocks back in the European
genealogy, I'm hoping that someone on in the SIG will have some
suggestions of how I can proceed.

My paternal grandfather, Adolf KINSBRUNNER was born in Vienna in 1913.
He escaped over the Alps and ended up eventually in California, where
he changed the family name to KINSEY when he opened his own business,
after a stint back in Europe with the U.S. Army.

His mother Rosa/Rose WEISKOPFT was born in Saaz, Czechoslovakia in
1883 (we don't have a specific date). We're lucky enough to know that
her parents were Adolph WEISKOPFT and and Sophie SLEISCHEL, but the
only dates or places associated with that couple is Adolph's death in
1911 and their marriage in 1880 (places unknown).

Rosa was apparently one of six siblings: herself, Mina, Elsa, Adele,
Willy, and Fritz. Willy's family ended up in Israel and Fritz's went
to South America. It's believed that Elsa was a Shoah victim, but I
have no proof of that. I know nothing about the other siblings and
have no life cycle date information for any of the siblings other than
Rosa.

One of my frustrations is that I cannot find Rosa's death records.
She made it to the USA after the war and died in Connecticut on
October 29, 1946, according to family records. I have been unable to
find official records of her death or burial through ancestry.com, the
JOWBR, or other resources. I have tried searching under KINSBRUNNER,
WEISKOPFT, spelling variations of both, and even KINSEY (although I
don't have any reason to believe that she changed her name when her
son did). I would love to know where her grave site is.

Adolf's father was Chaim Solomon KINSBRUNNER. His family history is
much less known than that of his wife. We know that he was injured in
WWI and that caused something traumatic that made my grandfather not
want to open up about his father's side of the family. After my
grandfather passed away, my parents found Chaim's WWI dogtags, which
list his birth in 1876 in Pheodoresti, Romania. I have located
(online) his grave site in Vienna (ZENTRALFRIEDHOF IV. TOR, Group 17,
Row 6, Grave 50.). He died in Vienna in 1929. I hope to someday make
it to Vienna in person to visit and photograph this site.

This is where my info ends on my great-grandfather. I have no idea
who his parents were or where his siblings (assuming he had them)
ended up. There are several other Kinsbrunner listings in the same
cemetery, but I'm not sure how to go about determining if they might
be related.

If anyone recognizes any of these names or has suggestions on how I
might continue, I would love to get any feedback possible.

Grudziadz.Felsen and Husum #germany

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

I am researching family >from Grudziadz. Great grandmother Elizabeth
was Jewish but she married out in a Church Otto BURMANN or BUURMAN.
She had to renounce her Judaism to marry in Church.

In 1909 Grudziadz was called Graudenz, and was part of the German
province of West Prussia. Her daughter Eva Ruth was born in Grudziadz
about 24/7/1909 and also married out. Her surname was KEDING.
Eva Ruth BURMANN died and was buried in Flensburg on 19/12/1963.
Flensburg as I understand it was in Denmark and then in Germany.
The family have had no luck in finding her grave.

Eva Ruth BURMANN gave birth to Sigrid Marie KEDING in Husum in Germany
22/1/1941. Sigrid married David BROWN who was not Jewish on 27/12/73
in London. They had a daughter Lena Ruth BROWN born in London on 27/12/1973.

I have no expertise in German Genealogy and would appreciate any
