it was probably right where it is today! :-) (there's an old joke
about a man who claims to have been born in austria, grew up in
czechoslovakia, and now lives in the ukraine - and never left his
villlage.)

a good website to look up place names >from "greater hungary" is
transindex (http://sebok2.adatbank.transindex.ro/), which has exactly
one hit for "hrabkov", namely harapko in saros megye, in the presov
(eperjes) district of present-day slovakia. (not czech rep.) two
other good resources for genealogical geography are bogardi.com,
which has two gazetteers (1882 and 1913) plus a surname lookup in the
1891 trade directory. the 1882 gazetteer has a possible alternate
spelling of hrabko' in the siroka district (seat eperjes), by the way.

google search for "harapko jewish" found the following message, >from
the slovak-roots discussion group, listing the lds films for hrabkov:

Hrabkov is a village name in Slovak language today, SÃros is a county name
in Hungarian before WWII. The former Hungarian name of Hrabkov is Harapkó.
The former Saros county until 1918 is today Preťov District (okres Preťov in
Slovak) in eastern Slovakia. Šariť is the slovak form of Såros. Coordinates
of Hrabkov: 48°58�N 21°01�E You can use the very useful database on the
Hungarian site of JewishGen: Methods and Maps.

"sosze" would be pronounced "shoh-seh", which i'm not familiar with,

For what it's worth, over the past two years, I have looked at
literally thousands of digital photos of original 19th Century birth
records for the Maramaros megye records project
(www.MaramarosJewishRecords.com); Maramaros megye was formerly in far
northeastern Hungary, but the area is today split up between
sub-Carpathian Ukraine and northern Romania. And I couldn't help
noticing that the given name "Shoshana" was apparently quite common in
the county. The name was rendered on the original birth records as
"Szose", "Szosze", "Sosze", "Sose", "Szoszje", "Sosi", and similar
variants. At least one or two ended up being referred to as "Zsofia"
in much later records. But none of the birth records explicitly
listed the name as "Shoshana" though, even though this was generally a
very religiously observant area.

Not entirely unrelated, I also have a wonderful fourteen-month-old
baby named Sasha Emily, whose Hebrew name is Shoshana Esther. :-)

JGSLA- March 13th - The Pianist of Willesden Lane & For the Sake of the Children #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Please join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles at our next program:

Tuesday, March 13, 2012 ~ 7:30PM Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Irmas Campus
11661 W. Olympic Boulevard , Los Angeles CA 90064

Sneak Preview: "The Pianist of Willesden Lane & "For the Sake of the Children:
Letters Between Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr."

Mona Golabek, celebrated American pianist and author, will offer a brief preview of
the upcoming world premiere of her one woman show, "The Pianist of Willesden Lane,"
opening on April 17 at the Geffen Playhouse. This is the true story of pianist
Lisa Jura, who traveled to London through the Kindertransport to escape Nazi
persecution on the eve of WWII. Set in Vienna in 1938 and London during the
Blitzkrieg, "The Pianist of Willesden Lane" tells the story of this young, Jewish
pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert
hall, but with the issuing of new ordinances under the Nazi regime, everything for
Lisa changes, except for her love of music and the pursuit of her dream. Featuring
some of the world's most beloved piano music played live, "The Pianist of Willesden
Lane" is performer Mona Golabek's true family story, chronicling hope, survival and
how through our darkest times, music has the power to help us survive. Ms. Golabek
will perform a few selections by Debussy, Chopin, and Scribian.

Ms. Golabek is an author, recording artist, radio host and internationally
acclaimed concert pianist. Ms. Golabek was taught by her mother, Lisa Jura, who,
along with Lisa's mother Malka, is the subject of Ms. Golabek's book,The Children
Of Willesden Lane. The work of Ms. Golabek and her sister, the late concert pianist
Renee Golabek-Kaye, has been inspired by the words their grandmother uttered
to her daughter at the Vienna train station as Lisa boarded the Kindertransport
for safety in London at the outset of World War II. Hold on to your music, Malka
told her, It will be your best friend. A Grammy nominee, Ms. Golabek has been the
recipient of numerous awards, including the Avery Fisher Prize and the People's
Award of the International Chopin Competition. She has appeared in concert at the
Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, Royal Festival Hall and with major orchestras
and conductors worldwide.

"For the Sake of the Children: Letters Between Otto Frank and Nathan Straus, Jr."

Joan Adler, Executive Director of the Straus Historical Society, Inc.and author of
the new book For the Sake of the Children will share with us the fascinating story
of the 2007 discovery of letters written in 1941 between Otto Frank and Nathan
Straus, Jr. revealing that Otto Frank recognized the danger his family faced and
was anxious to leave Amsterdam. Nathan Straus Jr., was Otto's roommate at
Heidelberg University and remained his lifelong friend. In 1941, when these
letters were written, Nathan Straus Jr. was the director of the United States
Housing Administration in President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's administration.
These newly discovered letters expand our knowledge about that relationship and
give us greater insight into this tragic era in history.

Joan Adler is the historian for the Straus family, the family that owned R. H.
Macys for almost 100 years. It is also the family of Isidor and Ida Straus
who died in the Titanic disaster. Joan began working with the family in 1990 when
she was hired to help get their personal papers out of the Macys archives after a
bitter leveraged buy-out. Once that project was completed, she had more than
100,000 pieces of paper no one has seen, some for close to 200 years. She organized
them, had the Old German translated into English, and began writing about their
contents. Each revelation brought with it a new area to research. Although not
formally trained as an historian, genealogist, archivist, author or publisher,
Joan now wears all of these hats. She is thrilled to share her stories about this
amazing family through the semiannual newsletters and the books she has authored
and in her speaking engagements.

No reservations necessary. JGSLA members are free. Guests $5.00 Refreshments will
be served. Our traveling library will be available at 7:00PM. For more

sometimes very strong.

Even for people living in Paris or coming >from Alsace, Lorraine, sometimes Germany

Ncamber92@...
 

I received information >from Yad Yashem that my uncle, Alter Klaz was born
in Puysir, Lith. I have looked at all the shetls listed in the Litvaksig 14
district research groups and my maps of Lithuania with no success. Help!!
Could Puysir be the Yeddish name??

Translation of "Jewish Cities, Towns, and Villages" by Kagan #lithuania

Jeff Kronenberg <jeffkronenberg@...>
 

Dear Litvak SIG:

I am looking for translation of several sections of the book, "Jewish
Cities, Towns, and Villages in Lithuania" (Yidishe Shtet, shtethlekh
un dorfishe yishuvim in Lite: biz 1918: historish-biografishe skitses)
by Beryl Kagan, New York, 1991.

The sections I am interested in are: Subacius p319-320. Seduva p. 559-565,
Panevezys p. 363-382, Raseiniai p. 525-545. The book is published in
Yiddish, and several sections are translated into English on JewishGen.org:
www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/yidishe_shtet/yidishe_shtet.html , but not those
listed above. Please advise if these sections have been translated by
anyone, or if there is an interest to share cost of having them translated.

When completed, they'll be made available to everyone by putting them
on the JewishGen Yiskor book project

Thank you. Hananya Kronenberg jeffkronenberg@yahoo.com
