Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

Belarus Meeting and SIG Luncheon #belarus

david.feldman@...
 

During the IAJGS 2018 Conference taking place in Warsaw, Poland, our annual
Belarus SIG meeting and luncheon will be on Thursday, August 9th. The SIG
meeting will start at 10:30am and the luncheon will start at 12:00. For our
luncheon speaker we are pleased to have independent filmmaker Sharon Rennert
speak at our luncheon on "A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to Belarus: A
Tale of Self Discovery in Spite of a Stubborn Grandmother."

Her grandfather was Holocaust hero Tuvia Bielski. When Ms. Rennert
originally set out to discover her family history as a descendant of the
Bielski Partisans, she approached the topic as an objective journalist. She
was not prepared, however, for the struggle she had getting her grandmother
to share her stories or the emotions that would be stirred up for both of
them.

As she got deeper into her research, and found herself standing on the land
of her grandfather's birthplace in Novogrudok, Belarus, Sharon could no
longer deny that she was more than just a researcher. She was part of this
history too and felt connected in a way that she had never experienced
before. This presentation details Ms. Rennert's journey retracing her
grandparents' footsteps throughout Belarus and the reflections that ignited
her passion for family genealogy.

If you haven't already signed up for the luncheon at noon on Thursday,
August 9, you won't want to miss out. Space is limited, and the price is
only $32 a seat. Sample >from a dairy-free, non-Kosher buffet with chicken
and vegetarian dishes, or order a pre-packaged kosher chicken or kosher
vegetarian plate.

To register for the luncheon, go to the Attendee Service Center
https://www.iajgs2018.org/asc_login.cfm. Sign in with the Email address you
used for registration and the password >from your confirmation message. On
the Welcome page, click Update Your Info, then click Edit and continue
through the registration form. On the Meal Events page, make your
selections and continue through to payment and confirmation.

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) - A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have anything to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

- Monor, Hungary (Bound by Fate: In Memory of the Jewish Community of
Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

New researcher (though longtime follower of Gesher Galicia) asking for advice #galicia

David Levine
 

Hi everyone

I am longtime follower and supporter of Gesher Galicia.

I have not researched as much as I would have liked because a search
of the site (and JewishGen) shows little in terms of leads for search.

In the hopes that this great group has some advice, my question is this:

My maternal grandmother's family came >from the following two towns:
- Rozniatow in Dolina administrative district
- Solotwina in Bohorodczany administrative district
It does not seem that records for these two towns survived the war or
the aftermath. I do not see them listed in any of the sources on
Gesher Galicia or JewishGen. I have information that my grandmother
provided but have not been able to confirm it or add to it.

I know there is a Solotwina cemetery project.

Beyond that would anyone have any advice on where to look for Jewish
records?

Here are the details I know >from grandmother Gertrude WEINSTEIN:

Mother's Mother (my grandmother):
- Gertrude WEINSTEIN born Feb 20 1906 in Rosulna, Galicia, near
Solotwina, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC approx 1921 with her mother and siblings, after
World War 1. Spent first part of war in Galicia, then as a refugee in
Olomuc, Moravia. Traveled to NYC via Warsaw, Berlin,
Rotterdam/Hamburg (?).
--
Parents of Gertrude (my great grandparents)
- Zelig WEINSTEIN born approx 1880 in Solotwina, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC approx 1910 - 1914, unable to bring family before war
-Elsie FRISCH born approx 1880 in Rozniatow, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC after war with my grandmother (see above)
--
Parents of Zelig (my great great grandparents):
- Rabbia Aaron WEINSTEN born approx 1855 in Solotwina, Galicia
- Esther SHOTENFELD born approx 1855 in Solotwina, Galicia

Parents of Elsie (my great great grandparents):
- Meschulim FRISCH born approx 1830 in Rozniatow, Galicia
- Ethel SCHINDLER born approx 1830 in Rozniatow, Galicia
--
Parents of Meschulim (my great great great grandparents)
- Baruch FRISCH born approx 1805 in Rozniatow, Galicia
- XXX HILMAN born approx 1805 in Rozniatow, Galicia

Parents of Ethel (my great great great grandparents)
- Avrum SCHINDLER born approx 1805 in Rozniatow, Galicia
- Sarah JUNGERMAN born approx 1805 in Rozniatow, Galicia

Thank You

to the JewishGen Family Finder -- https://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.asp

It does not seem that records for these two towns survived the war or
the aftermath. I do not see them listed in any of the sources on
Gesher Galicia or JewishGen. I have information that my grandmother
provided but have not been able to confirm it or add to it.

I know there is a Solotwina cemetery project.

Beyond that would anyone have any advice on where to look for Jewish
records?

Here are the details I know >from grandmother Gertrude WEINSTEIN:

Mother's Mother (my grandmother):
- Gertrude WEINSTEIN born Feb 20 1906 in Rosulna, Galicia, near
Solotwina, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC approx 1921 with her mother and siblings, after
World War 1. Spent first part of war in Galicia, then as a refugee in
Olomuc, Moravia. Traveled to NYC via Warsaw, Berlin,
Rotterdam/Hamburg (?).
--
Parents of Gertrude (my great grandparents)
- Zelig WEINSTEIN born approx 1880 in Solotwina, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC approx 1910 - 1914, unable to bring family before war
-Elsie FRISCH born approx 1880 in Rozniatow, Galicia
Immigrated to NYC after war with my grandmother (see above)
--

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.

- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.

- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) - A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are works in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable in
Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this would be
assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.

- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep
and further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

- Monor, Hungary
(Bound by Fate: In Memory of the Jewish Community of Monor)
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

We have added in 7 new entries:

Yizkor Book for Monor, Hungary #hungary

jel
 

Lance Ackerfeld just announced the addition of the book "Bound by Fate"
to the Yizkor Book Project.

"Bound By Fate" was written by a group of survivors to commemorate the
Jewish Community of Monor, Hungary, which was purged of all Jews during
the Holocaust. No trace of the Jewish community exists today -- no
memorials, plaques, or Stolpersteine.

This book is the result of 15 years of dedicated research by a small
group of Monor survivors, and contains, among other things, a list of
victims, a list of known survivors scattered throughout the world,
testimonies, and several family trees. A Hungarian hard copy version was
published in 2016, followed by an English translation in 2018.

At the wishes of the compilers and publisher, this book is not for sale.
It's purpose is to inform researchers, and will be distributed only to
organizations, libraries, and academic institutions with an interest in
Jewish studies.

I have digitized both the Hungarian and English versions (212pp. and
184pp., respectively) in PDF and Word formats. Each is fully searchable,
with photographs, and can be sent as an e-mail attachment to individuals
who would like to have a copy for their own research. If you want to
receive a copy (at no charge), please contact me at <
lipmanson@comcast.net>  . Indicate which language version you want, and
the format. If no preference is given, you will receive the English
version as a PDF attachment.
