'Breuges' #austria-czech

Charlie Roberts <charlie.roberts@...>
 

Regarding Celia's note on Breuges, this word was commonly used at home when
we grew up. My mother's family originated >from Kolomea (previously in
Poland) and then went to Vienna where she met my father before fleeing in
1938 to England. She always used this word - we understood it to mean
offended/angry. During my childhood my parents ran a restaurant in the East
End 'Roberts Restaurant' affectionately known by us as Refugees Corner (just
behind Gardiner's Corner) and not far >from the Yiddish Grand Palais Theatre.
It certainly was a popular word amongst our customers irrespective of where
they originated from.

Re: Yiddish in Czech lands -- and all over Europe - Breugus #austria-czech

Celia, be assured that that lovely word "Breugus" has not died out. My
parents, >from Vienna and before that >from Moravia, used it, (although my
father would have pronounced in "broiges") and even my Wife, with a
Latvian/Russian/English/Australian heritage, uses it. Strangely, I can't
find it in Leo Rosten's The Joys of Yiddish.
Oy!

The chief rabbi in Copenhagen 188-1891 was Abraham Wolff.
If you write what information you want precisely, I might be able
to help you.
The archives of the chief rabbi is extensive with all sorts of
documents (vital records, letters, articles, sermons etc. etc.)

records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen during this time,
There are some records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen,
however there was no official registration of immigrants for a very
long period, so it is not easy to research. I have a database based
on the ledgers for aid to "Russian" immigrants, so if there are some
specific names you are looking for I can look them up.

You can find naturalizations, some censuses and passenger lists
on the website of the Danish Demographic Database:
http://ddd.dda.dk/ddd_en.htm

and records concerning links to the Jewish community of Danzig.
I have not come accross any such records. There might be mention of
Jews >from Danzig somewhere in other records, but they are not listed
specifically.

The National Archives have an index to holdings of records of
the Jewish Community:
"Det Mosaiske Troessamfund i K=F8benhavn med nedlagte troessamfund
i provinsen - en arkivregistratur"
You can buy it >from the National Archives.
It contains a short history of the Jewish Community and explanation
of the holdings in the National Archives, which can be found at the
Scandinavia SIG's website:
http://www.jewishgen.org/scandinavia/resources.htm

But as mentioned above - write and tell us what you want to know, then
maybe some of us can help you.

Best regards

Wertheim Department Store in Berlin #general

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

I have today discovered that I am very distantly related to the Wertheim
family >from Anklam who went on to start one of the largest department stores
in Berlin.

A book has recently been published about the family
Erica Fischer / Simone Ladwig-Winters

"Die Wertheims. Geschichte einer Familie"

Rowohlt Verlag, Berlin 2004

The review of the book says that the stories of great families are more than
private stories.
