Hi everybody,

This message is mostly for members who live in Massachussetts, New York, New Hampshire,
Vermont and who can travel to Amherst, MA to Yiddish Book Center: https://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/.

On September 16, at 2pm Yiddish Book Center will present a film "Absent"
http://support.yiddishbookcenter.org/site/Calendar?id=7761&view=Detail. It is about a place,
shteitl, village, Jewish colony called Markuleshty in Bessarabia, now it is in Republic of Moldova, and
film is about Jews who used to live in this place before the World War II, and mostly it is about present
time people who live there with wage knowledge of Holocaust. It is about why we need to preserve
our Jewish Heritage in Bessarabia/Moldova.

In 2016 Conference in Seattle Bessarabia SIG invited film producer Matthew Mishory to show this
incredible movie "Absent" - https://www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/PTM_Article.asp?id=81
I remember that we had a full auditorium and 71 minute of our full attention to "Absent", and many
hours of conversations after that.

Here is trail: https://vimeo.com/84319513 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFazKpjw0Ts

Death Certificates," at the

Hi everybody,

I just looked at the internet and found that film Absent is available now at Amazon Prime for rent
or purchase.

I think that Matthew Mishory director of the film is a member of our Bessarabia SIG Discussion group.

Matthew, if there are some other ways to get a copy of your film, please let us know.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

Seeking Davimes Family #southafrica

Andrew Monfried <monfried73@...>
 

Recently, I discovered the real name of my grandmother's family to be DAVIMES >from
revision lists on Jewishgen. It's led me to dozens of new cousins of the Davimes
family that left Joniskelis, Lithuania and is seemingly all over the world now.

For me, it also solved two important mysteries that I have inquired about in this
forum before. One of which was who the rabbi was in a picture my grandmother
kept over many years. That man was Louis Davimes (1875-1949) who according to
another cousin was the Junior Shamos at the Great Synagogue in Johannesburg. He
was also my grandmother's uncle. Now I am hoping to find descendants of his
children who I have been told are Zundel (Sonny), Bella Passman, Bessie Cramer
and a sister named Ada.

If anyone can tell me more of these people or the Davimes in South Africa, I
would be most appreciative.

Best,

Re: An Excerpt from A Book #hungary

Probably unlikely that you'll find this book anywhere in Israel unless someone
has a personal copy but you may be able to find it on-line. Check the National
Szechenyi Library catalogue at http://nektar2.oszk.hu/librivision_eng.html
The Szechenyi reportedly has a copy of all materials printed in Hungary. See
http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/tel4/contributor/P01210 for description of
collection and more information.

appear on page 215/263, not sure which or whether both.

I would appreciate any help.

My Opus is on USHMM #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow family historians,

I have been working on an extensive family history, which is now available as
a pdf on the website of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). Its current
length is 627.9 MB, so it takes a while to download. It took me 1 minute and
14 seconds to download to my computer. If you are interested in reading it,
here is the URL

http://digitalarchives.assets.ushmm.org/pdf/bib261529_001_001.pdf

or

https://tinyurl.com/TFWOpus

The Table of Contents shows those chapters that are in various states of
incompletion and not yet available (NA) on the web site.

Briefly, the material covered are: my parent's origins in Prague and Vienna,
our escape >from Europe after 20 months as refugees primarily in France, my
assimilation and education in America, my research in the last couple of decades
that has reconnected me to my family roots, and my discovery of the tragic
losses of family in the Holocaust.

I welcome any comments, critiques, errata, etc.

Cheers,

Tom Weiss

Request for help finding information on Michael ABRAHAM, nephew of Hedwig and Alfred JULIUSBURGER (Holocaust victims). #general

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Dear All,
Whilst searching for information on the JULIUSBURGER family, last
known residence, Holzmarkt Strasse 65, Berlin, I came across what
appears to be a photo of them on "The List of Deportation >from Berlin"
database section of the Yad Vashem website,(search request;
JULIUSBURGER Hedwig: photo name; p39855). I asked the correspondant
there for more information and she told me that the photo had been
posted in 2006 by a man called Michael ABRAHAM. The correspondant
indicated to me that Mr ABRAHAM is, or perhaps was, the nephew of
Hedwig JULIUSBURGER, who was born Hedwig ABRAHAM, in Allenstein,
Eastern Prussia (now Olstyn, Poland) on 3 Steptember 1897. Hedwig's
husband, Alfred JULIUSBURGER, born in Breslau, (Now Wroclaw, Poland)
on 13 November 1892 was the son of Isidor and Martha JULIUSBURGER.
This means that I have a link to these people via other, living,
members of my family.

I have no other information on Michael ABRAHAM, unfortunately. As
ever, I would be extremely grateful for help in getting into contact
with Mr ABRAHAM, or his descendants.

Best regards

Alexander WATSON
