Yiddish romantic novelist, a friend of I. L. Peretz and Izak Meyer Dick. He d. 1933

arrived in South Africa in the early 1880s with her husband Marcus Glueck who was

-h- in Chicago which is written several times on the manifest. There is also
a crossed -t- in Detroit.

Seeking contact information for KIRSCHEN #galicia

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Good morning.

I am hoping someone out there can help me locate contact info
for Fischel KIRSCHEN or his descendants.

When I last spoke with Fischel (exchanging information about the
marriage connection between our Rohatyn families), was about 10
years ago, and he was then living in Israel.

Fischel was born in Rohatyn, the son of Mina KIRSCHEN (nee
LIEBLING) and Abraham KIRSCHEN.

Fischel left Yad Vashem testimony for his parents and many
others who perished in the Rohatyn ghetto or, like his father,
in Belzec.

Any and all leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and kind regards,

Jewish Archive found in Iraq and brought to the United States in 2003 is now

and cases to hold Torah scrolls; a Jewish religious book published in 1568;
50 copies of a children's primer in Hebrew and Arabic; books in Arabic and
English, books printed in Baghdad, Warsaw and Venice - the lost heritage of
what was once one of the largest Jewish communities in the Middle East,
dating to the 6th century B.C.

Research University of Antwerp / Jewish Museum of Deportation and Resistance Mechelen #general

Liesbeth Vantorre <liesbeth.vantorre@...>
 

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

I am a researcher at the University of Antwerp and a temporary staff
member of the Jewish Museum of Deportation and Resistance in Mechelen,
a city located between Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium. The present
museum is situated in the building which was previously known as the
Kazerne Dossin. It was here that, in 1942, the Nazis established
SS-Sammellager Mecheln. This place was the departure point for a
deportation without return. In the years between 1942 and 1944, 24.916
Jews and 351 Gypsies were transported to the camps in the east.
The museum has a nice collection of photographs, personalia, and
information about the deportees, but the exhibition space is rather
small. For that reason, a new museum is being built on the opposite
side of the 'Kazerne Dossin', after the example of other Jewish
museums in Europe (Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, London,..). In this
museum the very particular Belgian war situation will be highlighted.
I am responsible for the audiovisual material, more specifically, for
the film material. Next to films about occupied Belgium, the everyday
life during the occupation, actions of the occupying forces, actions
of paramilitary organisations with nazi sympathies, I also looking
for amateur 'home movies', made by Jews who lived in Belgium during
the 1930s and 1940s. The main audience of the museum will be children
and teenagers (12 - 18 years old), and we want to show them that
Jewish people in Belgium had lives like they have themselves: they
went to school, had parties, celebrated birthdays, learned how to walk
and talk, had fun with their brothers, sisters, parents and friends.
That is the kind of material I am looking for: films that depict the
everyday and religious life of Jewish families who lived in Belgium
between 1933 and 1945. In the Netherlands, a lot of this kind of
material has been restored and preserved, so I am almost certain that
there must be similar material for Belgium. Antwerp and Brussels had
very large Jewish communities. Do you have such material, or do you
know people who might have this kind of films? Please contact me. Of
course the staff of the Jewish Museum of Deportation and Resistance
will handle the film material and the owners with the greatest care
possible.

Thank you very much in advance,
Yours sincerely,

Liesbeth Vantorre

Missing "J" in German Passports #general

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Yesterday I wrote about this and that "5 October 1938 all Jewish passports
were declared not guilty in Germany."

An attentive Genner asked about the word "guilty". It should be "not valid".
Sorry for the mistake.

As a P.S. to Jan's messages:
Harold Rhode was an exciting guest speaker at a JGSPBC Florida meeting quite a few
years ago, presenting slides of his experience in the rescue of the Jewish archival
documents in Iraq. Prior to being our guest, several of our members had heard him
lecture at the IAJGS Conference, where we were mesmerized by the content of his
presentation!

USCIS Genealogy Program #general

Hank Mishkoff
 

I just discovered that the USCIS (United State Citizenship and Immigration
Services)runs what they call a fee-for-service genealogy program at
http://www.uscis.gov/genealogy

Basically, you can pay them $20 for an "index search" in which they'll let you know
what documents they have, and then you can order each document for anywhere >from
$20 to $35. They seem to have about a three-month backlog, which I suspect will
grow as the service becomes more popular.
