Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

Keynote speaker for IAJGS Conference #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Leaders of the 36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy
are pleased to announce that University of Washington Professor Devin E.
Naar will deliver the keynote address at the meeting in August 2016.

Dr. Naar is a brilliant scholar and a spellbinding presenter who has
received national attention for his work in Ladino language and
literature. "The Sephardic Experience in the United States" will be one
of the key topic tracks of the 2016 conference in Seattle, which has the
third largest Sephardic population in the United States after New York
and Los Angeles.

Dr. Naar is chair of the UW Sephardic Studies Program and an assistant
professor in the school's History department. He has emerged as one of
the most dynamic, charismatic young scholars of Jewish history,
particularly the Sephardic experience. The only assistant professor ever
elected to the prestigious Academic Advisory Council of the Center for
Jewish History in New York, Dr. Naar recently launched a pilot program,
"Seattle Sephardic Treasures," dedicated to preserving and disseminating
the rich cultural and linguistic traditions of Sephardic Judaism.

Presentations, panel discussions and other events at the conference,
expected to draw upwards of 1,000 attendees >from around the world, will
take in the full global sweep of the Jewish experience, including
European migrations, Jewish families in South America, Australia, South
Africa, and Israel, as well as Jews in the Western United States.

The program committee is accepting proposals for presentations, and the
December 15 deadline is approaching. You can find formation on how to
submit a proposal >from the "call for papers" link in the "program
speakers" menu on the Conference home page at www.iajgs2016.org.

Margot DAVID aka Belane ROTTMAN from Salanky, Hungary (Ukraine today) #general

Roberta Solit
 

Looking for anyone with knowledge of Margit DAVID, born in Shalanky
around 1920 to Mozes DAVID and Rosa Rappaport.
She married Bela ROTTMAN and her name appears as Belane ROTTMAN on a
deportation list found on the US Holocaust Memorial Museum's website.
The "ne" is added to the first name of the husband in Hungarian records-
this means, the wife of- or Mrs.
I was told by a family member that Margit survived the Holocaust and at
the end of the war she lived in Bratislava.

Thanks re: rail travel to western Canada #general

Roberta Sheps
 

Thanks to everyone who's sent me very welcome and detailed information about
the rail routes and location of Jewish farms in south-eastern Saskatchewan,
as well as suggestions of sources, several of which I was not aware of. And
particularly to Jehuda who's spent some effort finding me the relevant
passenger list and declaration forms on entry to Canada As usual, the forms
hold a wealth of information and further puzzles. It's clear that my
Yiddish-speaking great-grandmother and her Polish-speaking grandchildren
made it by train >from Quebec City to their destination on the prairies
without any apparent help >from any members of their already-settled family.
Amazing.
Whether they actually did go to the village they named, or some other, of
straight to Winnipeg as my mother maintained is a puzzle that I'll have to
try to solve in another way. I'm going to present everything I've learned
and the Saskatchewan puzzle to my many cousins in the hope that one of their
parents or grand-parents said anything that could have been a clue.

There's another puzzle about their journey to and in England. Their ship
from Danzig, the Moscva, apparently sailed to London, but the family sailed
to Canada >from Liverpool, which was the major port for ships >from eastern
Europe to North America. Was there a package that would have included train

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Thanks re: rail travel to western Canada #general

Roberta Sheps
 

Thanks to everyone who's sent me very welcome and detailed information about
the rail routes and location of Jewish farms in south-eastern Saskatchewan,
as well as suggestions of sources, several of which I was not aware of. And
particularly to Jehuda who's spent some effort finding me the relevant
passenger list and declaration forms on entry to Canada As usual, the forms
hold a wealth of information and further puzzles. It's clear that my
Yiddish-speaking great-grandmother and her Polish-speaking grandchildren
made it by train >from Quebec City to their destination on the prairies
without any apparent help >from any members of their already-settled family.
Amazing.
Whether they actually did go to the village they named, or some other, of
straight to Winnipeg as my mother maintained is a puzzle that I'll have to
try to solve in another way. I'm going to present everything I've learned
and the Saskatchewan puzzle to my many cousins in the hope that one of their
parents or grand-parents said anything that could have been a clue.

There's another puzzle about their journey to and in England. Their ship
from Danzig, the Moscva, apparently sailed to London, but the family sailed
to Canada >from Liverpool, which was the major port for ships >from eastern
Europe to North America. Was there a package that would have included train
travel >from London to Liverpool for 3rd class passengers travelling to North
America >from Danzig?

I've always loved mysteries.(particularly those by Dorothy L Sayers)

Thanks again,

Keynote speaker for IAJGS Conference #bessarabia

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Leaders of the 36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy
are pleased to announce that University of Washington Professor Devin E.
Naar will deliver the keynote address at the meeting in August 2016.

Dr. Naar is a brilliant scholar and a spellbinding presenter who has
received national attention for his work in Ladino language and
literature. "The Sephardic Experience in the United States" will be one
of the key topic tracks of the 2016 conference in Seattle, which has the
third largest Sephardic population in the United States after New York
and Los Angeles.

Dr. Naar is chair of the UW Sephardic Studies Program and an assistant
professor in the school's History department. He has emerged as one of
the most dynamic, charismatic young scholars of Jewish history,
particularly the Sephardic experience. The only assistant professor ever
elected to the prestigious Academic Advisory Council of the Center for
Jewish History in New York, Dr. Naar recently launched a pilot program,
"Seattle Sephardic Treasures," dedicated to preserving and disseminating
the rich cultural and linguistic traditions of Sephardic Judaism.

Presentations, panel discussions and other events at the conference,
expected to draw upwards of 1,000 attendees >from around the world, will
take in the full global sweep of the Jewish experience, including
European migrations, Jewish families in South America, Australia, South
Africa, and Israel, as well as Jews in the Western United States.

The program committee is accepting proposals for presentations, and the
December 15 deadline is approaching. You can find formation on how to
submit a proposal >from the "call for papers" link in the "program
speakers" menu on the Conference home page at www.iajgs2016.org.

its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between 1945-1970.
