INTRO: Seeking BROCK in Mittweida #germany

Juergen Nitsche <junitsche58@...>
 

Subject: Intro- BROCK IN MITTWEIDA

I am preparing a book about "Jews in Mittweida", located in Middle Saxony,
between Leipzig and Dresden.

For this book, I am looking for information about the landlady Henriette BROCK
and her family. She was born in 1864 in Kallenezin n. Ortelsburg (East
Prussia). Her parents were Abraham BROCK and Bertha LAHRMANN. They lived
till their death in Willenberg (East Prussia).

Henriette BROCK rented out rooms for students of the Technikum in
Mittweida. She died on 7th, march 1906 in Mittweida and was buried at the
Jewish cemetery in Chemnitz.

Her sister Johanna lived also any years in Mittweida. She moved later to
Broda. Her brother Moritz Moses lived in Waldheim, located near Mittweida.

He was married with Florentine ALEXANDER. I found two other members of the
family: Israel and Sara, who lived also in Waldheim. Maybe Alexander BROCK
was a brother of Henriette. He lived in Duesseldorf, before he was deported.

I am looking for more information about the family BROCK in Middle Saxony.
All advice and information are very welcome. Thank you very much in advance!

"Germans & Jews: A Documentary Film" screening at NYC Synagogue December 13th #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

Park Avenue Synagogue in Manhattan will host a screening of "Germans &
Jews: A Documentary Film" Tuesday, December 13th followed by a
discussion with the historical consultant for the film Thorsten
Wagner. More information is at:

https://pasyn.org/lifelong-learning/adult-ed/classes/germans-jews-film

from which I've extracted the following:
" Through personal stories, "Germans & Jews" explores the country's
transformation >from silence about the Holocaust to facing it head on.
Unexpectedly, a nuanced story of reconciliation emerges."

"Thorsten Wagner was the historical consultant for Germans & Jews.
Born in Denmark, he is an Associate Professor of Modern European
History at DIS/University of Copenhagen, and the Academic Director of
the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics
(FASPE), NYC. He has written numerous publications in the fields of
modern German and European Jewish History, anti-Semitism, Holocaust
studies, cultures of memory and Israeli history and society."

I was informed of this program by a Synagogue member who invited me
to attend as a guest. If you are interested in attending please
contact the Park Avenue Synagogue via:

"The R. P. Club of Philadelphia" -- 1905 #general

Renee Steinig
 

My husband's grandfather, Isidore Steinig, is one of nine young men
pictured in a photograph taken in 1905 in Philadelphia. He was about
17 then. The photo's on ViewMate...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52270

The back of the photo is labeled "The R. P. Club of Philadelphia" and
lists H. Herman, President; Wm. Bloom, Vice President; I. S. Steinig,
Treasurer; H. Satinsky, Secretary; and members S. J. Fields, B. Gold,
H. Holfman, B. Lipowitz, Wm. Hoffman, and L. Siegel. The photographer
was Joseph R. Rappaport, 149 N. Ninth St., Philadelphia.

Has anyone ever heard of this group or any of its members?

A little more about Grandpa Izzie:

He immigrated to the United States in 1903 >from what was then Tluste,
Galicia -- now Tovste, Ukraine. He first lived in New York City with
his father and stepmother, then went to Philadelphia, where he
married Eva Katz in 1910. Their first child was born in Philadelphia
in 1911. By 1915, they were in New York, where they remained. For many
years, Izzie worked for the Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union and
family lore has it that he went to Philadelphia to help organize
workers... but since that union wasn't formed until 1914, maybe not!

Five towns named Kamienczyk, Poland are listed including one with a

Poland between the Wars. It is located 34 miles NE of Warszawa, 24 miles NW
of Wegrow and 3 miles E of Wyszkow.

RTR lists 0 record groups available for Kamienczyk, 7 record groups for
Wyszkow including BD records 1874-1892; 1894-1909 in State Archive for the
City of Warsaw Branch Archive in Pultusk, and 11 record groups for Wegrow
including BMD records 1826-1904/08 in State Archive in Siedlce.

JRI-Poland < http://jri-poland.org/index.html >

As you found, a search in JRI-Poland for town Kamienczyk records lists 12 in
Lomza, 5 in Siedlce and 20 in Warszawa Gubernia. Most of the records are
from Wyszkow and Wegrow PSAs.
Try contacting JRI-Poland's Wyszkow and Wegrow Town Leaders or Pultusk and
