The Latvia Birth database does not have listings for the years prior to 1872/3. Is
there somewhere else I can access earlier births?
Thank you for your suggestions.

Connection between ZACKHEIM and descendants of R'Chaim of Volozhin? #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In our family research we are pretty "closed" on the fact that the
Rabbi Mordechai of Pinsk during the mid 19th cent. mentioned in my
gguncle's diary as his mother's relative was R' Mordechai ZACKHEIM .
As I posted before, though we don't know what his mother (Sarah
Hinde)'s maiden name was we do believe she was a direct descendant of
R' Chaim of Volozhin (or at least connected to his family somehow).

Would anybody have any information if and how the ZACKHEIM and the Volozhin
families are connected. I know that Mordechai studied at the Volozhin Yeshiva.

My great great grandmother, Sarah Hinde was married to Shlomo KANTOR of
Karlin/Pinsk (not Chassidic). Shlomo, besides owning a grocery store, was the
Chazan/Kantor of the Synagogue of Karlin. It could very well be that his family
name came >from his profession (and not necessarily >from a previous ancestor).

I should mention that my gguncle (mentioned above) was well known Israeli pioneer
Chaim Dov KANTOR of Zichron Yacov and moshava Shfeya in Eretz Yisrael (Palestine).

New Book by SIG List Member: The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

Dear Friends,

I'm writing to announce the publication of The Long Half-Lives of Love
and Trauma, available in paper and as an ebook >from Amazon all over
the world. The Czech translation will be published by IRENE Press in
the fall of 2018.

Written before the #MeToo Movement burst into international
consciousness, this memoir tracks the consequences of sexual
harassment, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse over the
lifetime of a successful American journalist and author who grew up in
the Czech exile community of New York City.

This memoir is the third of a non-fiction trilogy, following Children
of the Holocaust: Conversations with Sons and Daughters of Survivors
(Putnam, 1979) and Where She Came From: A Daughter's Search for Her
Mother's History (Little, Brown, 1997), both widely translated.

Advance praise for The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma

"This book invents its own genre. Eminent journalist Helen Epstein
suspects sexual abuse in her childhood and investigates with the full
arsenal of what is available to her as an adult: the literature on
trauma and false memory; the tools of psychoanalysis as well as a
sophisticated understanding of its limitations; the toolkits of an
historian and ethnographer. And access to a key witness... That rare
story in which everyone becomes more human and multi-dimensional as it
unfolds." Sherry Turkle, author of Reclaiming Conversation: The Power
of Talk in a Digital Age

"In this poignant, vividly written and fearlessly frank memoir, Helen
Epstein probes, with sensitivity and insight, the multi-layered
ambiguities of love, intimate relationships, and post-Holocaust
American lives. More than a chronicle of events, this is a true labor
of memory, in which the story of the body is inseparable >from the
narrative of the self." Eva Hoffman, author of Lost in Translation

"In midlife, well settled in marriage and motherhood, Epstein is
impelled to revisit the legacy of her childhood. As she risks both her
own sanity and the relationships she holds most dear, Epstein
illustrates the complex moral and psychological effects of trauma, and
the gritty process of recovery." Judith Herman, M.D., author of Trauma
and Recovery

"Helen Epstein's career has been devoted to tracking how political and
cultural history penetrates family life over generations. Her books
have been models of investigation. This new memoir plants an even
deeper stake into the search through personal trauma... This is heroic
writing, and belongs in the canon of accounts of mothers and
daughters, of wounds lost in the depth of childhood, and the valiant
determination of a woman to live in uncertainty with grace." Patricia
Hampl, author of I Could Tell You Stories

"In this riveting book, Helen Epstein probes the dark corners of her
childhood with sensitivity and remarkable candor. This memoir reads
like a detective story and asks questions that affect us all: how does
our sexual nature get formed or deformed, and how can it change?
Unflinching writing." Anne Karpf, author of The War After: Living with
the Holocaust

I hope you will read it and leave your review on the Amazon Page.


Best for a Peaceful and Meaningful 2018,

Helen

ITS files at US Holocaust Museum #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

A few years ago I noted that the digitized ITS files were available to
the public at the US Holocaust Museum and that I'd found a lot of
information searching them. Today I discovered the Holocaust Museum
now has a web page that makes it possible to request searches of the
ITS files. (https://www.ushmm.org/remember/the-holocaust-survivors-and-victims-resource-center/international-tracing-service).
For all I know this has been around for a while, but I haven't seen it
mentioned here. The service is provided by volunteers and I have no
idea what the turnaround time is.

Additionally, I thought it might be useful to describe some things
I've found in the ITS file that you cannot usually find other ways
(e.g. via holocaust.cz):

* Information on Jews who were married to gentiles and allowed to live
in Prague. The Nazis kept a residence card for many (all?) of these
Jews, listing their families and residences and work assignments.
They are part of the so-called Theresienstadt card file in the ITS
records -- the same information used to generate the initial data in
holocaust.cz -- but for some reason these residence cards were not
included in the information put on-line.

* Information for Jews who died in Czechoslovakia during the war but
where not sent to Theresienstadt. Also in the Theresienstadt card
file, there are occasional index cards noting that someone died, with
their date and place of death. Often a good way to find out what
happened to an elderly/infirm relative who died before they could be
deported to Theresienstadt. Furthermore, since most vital records
post 1939 are missing, this card may be the only record of someone's
death.

* Requests to the ITS >from survivors requesting confirmation that they
were victims for various legal actions. This often gives you a
postwar address for the survivor.

* Requests to the ITS >from spouses, siblings and other relatives
seeking to trace a victim/survivor. Again, typically gives you a
postwar address for a family member.

Thanks!
