Belarus.

The Losz family >from Svisloch. Ezekial Losz died 1919 in Svisloch. His
son was Maishe, born 23 march 1888. Maishe immigrated 1921 to Montreal,
Canada.

Abraham Katznelson (later Landsberg) was >from Bobruisk, born c.1859 and
emigrated 1893/4 to North America. He married Rivka Fox, born 21 Dec 1863
Bobruisk, daughter of Leib Wolf Fox.

areas, then please do get in touch!

Irena Sendler's List #poland

Mariannah <mariannah@...>
 

Hello,

I wonder if any of you knows if there is a place where the list of children
saved by Mrs Sendler and her partners is being kept today? Or maybe a copy?
Yad Vashem? Washington? New York? Anywhere?

I know that Slovakia is not directly part of this Sig, but many of us have a
connection to Slovakia, which has been part of Austria-Hungary.
In this connection I found a database of Slovakian cemeteries - according to
the saying containing some 73000 names
http://www.cemetery.sk/

Further following Czech database similar to that of Jewishgen can be useful:

WW1 German-language newspaper sources #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Anyone seriously studying the participation of Jews in WW1 and the effect of
the War on Jewish communities on Europe, must really learn German and many
other languages too. An excellent starting point is this website for about 100
German-language Jewish newspapers on line - totally free:
http://www.compactmemory.de/

For example *Judische Korrespondenz* - even if you do not speak German you can
pick up the gist and place/family names - was a weekly paper devoted to Jewish
interests published in Vienna 1915 -1920. It then turns into the Judische
Presse.

Most of the many German-language Jewish newspapers listed on the left-hand side
published in the period 1914-1918 have extensive coverage of WW1. I have come
across gallantry lists as well as lists of wounded and fallen soldiers.

It is a matter of searching, *when/if ever* you have little else to do but sit
at the computer and browse. Remember to write down the newspaper, date and page
number though - I often browse and *find*, but never write them down as there
is no direct relevance to me at the time!

I zapped at random now and found this fascinating edition >from Berlin
Judische Rundschau Jahrgang 1915 Band Heft 4 (22.1.1915)

On page 4 [actually p. 28 of the newspaper] Oesterreiche-Ungarn's Zionisten in
Felde [ie Zionist in the fields of War] - lots of names here of gallantry
medals, injured and fallen soldiers >from Moravia, Vienna, Budapest, Bukowina
etc - eg Robert ZWEIG >from Prossnitz and Sportsmen >from Vienna Otto REISS;
Fritz Wagner; Otto MUTZ were all killed.

These newspapers are a veritable goldmine for historians, genealogists, on
religious matters, zionism etc ie anyone interested in the enormously wide
scope they cover. They are unfortunately not searchable - you have to read
them!

The above issue for example also has the obituaries of Carl GOLDMARK [Vienna]
and Narcisse LEVEN {Paris] on p 5.

Dear Signers

Firstly - thank you very well for your replays, councils and messages
regarding the cemetery in Trebic. Some of you claimed, my description is a
little confused.

So more simply now:

Do you think, it is dignified, reverent and halachic kosher to take a
matzewa (nevertheless we don't know which place it loosed from) on some
another grave (where could lye the bones of another departed) ?


Thanks (with regards)

Based on my experience, neither one has been satisfactory enough (for more

Please take a look at the photograph at

His name is Moshe GROSSMAN and his wife Brauna. I was told he was a
Dean or Chief Rabbi of a Rabbinical School in Kishinev. He would
have been alive in the 1800s (his children were probably born around
the 1850s) Would there be any information on him because he was a
dean? How would I find out information.

Please respond to me directly at wexler1980@yahoo.com

In all likelihood this is Nowy Dwor (or Nowydwor or Nowodwor). There
are many places in Poland with this name. The name means "new court"
in Polish, and, as you can imagine, many new developments near an
existing city/town were given this name.
