I think that it is and absolute disgrace that the JGS in any way wants to
hold a meeting in France, one of the most insidiously anti semitic countries
in Europe.

The First Descent into Hell-Continued -Letter to a Prisoner #austria-czech

norofra@...
 

Follow the link for the latest posting in "Courage of the Spirit",
the account of Rabbi Dr. Wilhelm Weinberg, first State Rabbi of Hesse
(Frankfurt region) after the Shoah:

Letter to a Prisoner

The archivist at Brandenburg found, among the legal documents, a
personal letter to my father >from a friend of his, Oskar Gellman, dated
January 17, 1936, with an extra note by Erna, whom I assume to be his wife.
His friend not only decided to appraise him of the mundane
events of his acquaintances during the time her was in prison, but also to
entertain him and keep his spirit up. Why the wardens would have kept just
this letter, I have no clue, but the writer is so very vivid and ascerbic in
his wit, that perhaps they kept it as an example of how funny these Jews
could be. His writing verges on the Rabelaisian and he pokes sharply at his
friends and acquaintances.
It is a window on the mood of Jews in the early years of the
Hitler reign, as the Nuremberg laws were taking effect while the ultimate
horror, awaiting them was something as yet unimagineable . . .

Thanks for the k. k. Marine Report Transcription & Translation #austria-czech

James
 

I thank the handful of wonderful Austria-Czech listers who responded to
help correctly transcribe and translate the last bit of Wilhelm Mayer's
1850 k. k. Marine fitness report. I think the last bit
transcribed/translated is:

auf dem Kriegsdampfer Vulcan, eingeschifft

on the warsteamer Vulcan, embarked

I appreciate all who contributed their comments and insights.

MILLER (KAMBER), Kovno Guberniya --> Baltimore #general

Miller, John <JMILLER@...>
 

Hi,

I was hoping someone might be able to help point me in the right
direction regarding my father's family >from Russia. I have looked
for death certs and other information in ancestry.com,
familysearch.org, etc. but have turned up very little with the
exception for what was on the census. I have visited all the
gravesites in Baltimore, MD and have listed pertinent information
below. I have been told the family was >from Kovno gubernia in
Lithuania and the real family name is not MILLER, but KAMBER.
Census has them coming to United States around 1890.

George Miller , died 10/17/1920, born around 1850
Shanie Miller, died 12/14/1926 born around 1852

Parents of :
Isaac Jacob Miller , died 7/11/1952, born around 1873, wife was
Minnie Miller (died 7/9/1948)
Bessie Miller Bodek
Unknown sister

Thank you so much,

John Miller

Hello members!

I have posted a vital record to ViewMate. I would like a direct
translation of this document which is a death record for my Uncle
Joseph Ingberg. He resided in Minden, Germany but died in Hannover,
Germany. I have two links as I posted a light copy scan and a darker
scan of this same document, as I am not sure which will be easier to
read.
