I would be very interested in this as well.
Members may be also interested in the recent issue of Cahiers de l'Histoire
de la Shoah, dealing with the Judenraete, ghetto by ghetto. Obviously, Lodz
takes a "prominent" position here.

A journalist, author, teacher, and researcher in Lodz, Joanna Podolska, is
actively involved in writing about the history of Jews in her city. She has
already authored or contributed to a number of publications on this topic.
She is looking for follow-up information about two people who worked with
RUMKOWSKI in the Lodz Ghetto.

Dora FUCHS was secretary to RUMKOWSKI. A great deal is known about her.
She moved to Israel after the war. Is she still alive? How can she be
contacted?

Estera DAUM, born 1918, was steno-typist and second secretary to Rumkowski.
Rumor has it that she also survived the ghetto and camps, but this has not
been confirmed. Does anyone have information about her?

Thanks.

Handwriting in KONITZ/EHRENFEST marriage document, Vienna, 1857 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I wrote last week: " It is rare to see anything detailed on the internet about
the Sephardic community of Vienna, yet they had a very special status. Their
vital records are now available through Family History Centres, but as I have
never looked at them, I have no idea how easy they are to interpret. Jews who
were under the suzerainty of the Sultan had permission to reside in Vienna long
before the Jews of the Habsburg Empire could settle there after the revolution
of 1848. Indeed, looking at the names of some of the Jewish Turkish citizens, I
wonder if these were not Jews who had taken on the citizenship with the express
purpose of living freely in Vienna.

I just found a document {dated 3 Sept 1857, Vienna} for sale on the
best-known auction site on the internet ... which refers to granting the
marriage permission between Markus KONITZ - trader/businessman >from Jassy,
Romania {dob abt 1826} and Rosalie EHRENFEST {dob abt 1837}. This marriage is
sanctioned by the Turkish consulate in Vienna."

I forgot to mention that this record {dated 1857} was in normal "Roman" script
and not in the usual Kurrent we see on many of the Vienna records including
those >from the IKG. I do not know if this was usual with Sephardic records in
Vienna or this was a "one-off". It certainly it made it much easier to read.

rabbi Lazar POLAK #austria-czech

Micheline GUTMANN
 

I seize the opportunity of the discussion about a POLLAK family
to introduce my research about another POLA(L)K family which
is my husband's one.

The rabbi Lazar (Lazur, Leyser) POLAK arrived to Gent, Belgium, soon
after the French Revolution, and the Toleranzpatent of Joseph II.

He was the son of a Philip POLAK (original given name?) born about 1763
and he came >from Koenigswarte, CZ. He was the first rabbi of the little
Jewish community there. He married, I don't know where, Rosalie David born
about 1780 Frankfurt-am-Main, and they had six children in Gent before he
died in 1808.

She was expecting the seventh, a son called Philip who died the same
year.

Could it be possible to find something more for this place at that time?
Thank you for your help.

Any chance he was married to an Ida, with children Norman, Meyer, Stanley

Kane County, Illinois. This Nathan was born around 1877 in Russia and was
a men's clothier.

There's a death certificate for a Norman Breen who died in Dec. 1945 in
the Illinois death records database so the certificate itself should be
available on microfilm. Perhaps that would give his birthdate and

German-Jewish Given Names [that don't seem Jewish] #germany

Daniel Sachs <sachsmd@...>
 

It has always piqued my curiosity that German Jews did
not give their sons certain Teutonic names like
Detlev, Dietrich, Reinhold, Reinhard, Lutz, Uwe, etc.
but certain other names like Rudolph, Erich and Heinz
were acceptable. Was there a list of verboten names,
or a list of acceptable names?

I remember reading also that the names Siegfried and
Sigmund and Wolfgang, although undoubtedly Teutonic,
were so often used in naming Jewish boys that
Christian parents shied away >from them as too Jewish.
Is that right?

Daniel Sachs Bethesda, Maryland, USA sachsmd@yahoo.com

MODERATOR NOTE: Name questions often generate a lot of chatter in this
forum, much of it far off the topic of genealogy research. If find this
inquiry interesting, however. Perhaps the fact that I was given the name of
a famous Naval officer and a beloved Pontiff, neither of them Jewish, has
something to do with that.

I would like to allow more discussion than usual this time but we will
*** not *** post messages about individual Jewish relatives with
"Teutonic" names unless there is a documented and instructive
explanation. JPL / MOD1

Is this Abraham LEVIK's Russian swimming award? #general

Martin Fischer
 

My maternal grandfather, Abraham LEVIK (1877-1957) of Kiyev, Ukraine, is
reputed to have won a river swimming competition and received an award >from
the czarina of Russia.

I have posted close-up photos on ViewMate of a piece of jewelry that seems
to have Russian letters on the front and two dates (October 2, 1905 and
October 2, 1910) on the back.

Is this a swimming award that might have been presented to my grandfather by
the czar's wife, or does it have anything to do with his service in the Russian
army in the Russo-Japanese war?

What do the letters on the front signify? What do the numbers on the back signify?
Could they indicate he won the swimming competition twice, or could they indicate
the years of his military service?

I realize that this is not exactly a genealogy question, but we are interested in
learning whether that story about my grandfather's athletic achievement might be
validated by this piece of jewelry.

I would be interested in hearing >from experts on the history of the Russian royal
family who might be able to verify that the Russian letters on the front might
verify that it was presented by the czarina. Was there a tradition of river
swimming competitions in czarist Russia, in Kiyev or elsewhere? Was there some
particular significance to October 2 in the history of Russia?
