New York Times Travel Section "On the Way to Auschwitz I Found 'Heil Hitler' Signs for Sale" #germany

JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

Encounters with aiti-semitism during family history travel in Europe,
especially Poland, are described in this current New York Times article.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/27/travel/poland-holocaust-trip.html

"I was traveling through Germany and Poland with the Fellowships at
Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics, a program that looks
at the role of journalists, lawyers, doctors, business people and
religious leaders in the Holocaust. Following several days of study in
Berlin and Krakow, we had spent the morning exploring Kazimierz before
a drive to Auschwitz and Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and death
camps. A few of us were grabbing lunch for the road when we noticed
the "Heil Hitler" signs for sale and, keeping with the themes of our
trip, began debating the ethical questions they raised."

Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 ["Germany" not mentioned] #germany

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 #unitedkingdom

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
January:

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during

Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MOD. NOTE: Please note especially the references below to four Galician
towns: Przemysl, Poland, and Kolomyya, Ozeryany, and Radekhiv, Ukraine.]

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an example,
I recently received a number of messages >from people interested in
taking on the coordination of some of our "coordinator-less" Yizkor Book
projects, to help move them forward. If you would like to know more
about the coordination of a particular Yizkor book, please feel free to
contact me and I will explain what is involved.

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they
were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.

- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print Project
has published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community of
Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520-page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities
of Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
January:

We have added in 8 new entries:

Re: Location of Kovno Gubernia #general

Judith Singer
 

Hello -- it is easy to find a map of Kovno Guvernia, for example on
JewishGen at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/LithuaniaRegions.htm ,
but it doesn't seem >from the rest of your question that the map will
be very helpful. That map includes only the few largest shtetls.

JewishGen's shtetl map at
kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/vabalninkas/Shtetl_Map_files/widget0_markup.html
might be more useful, but even that does not contain all the dorfs
(villages that contained only a few Jewish families, too small to be
shtetls), and again, I'm not sure that will provide what you are
looking for.

There is no map of all the cemeteries in Kovno Gubernia and many
(probably most) of the ones that once existed are no longer there. The
Maceva site at www.litvak-cemetery.info/ estimates that in pre-war
Lithuania there were between 200 - 240 Jewish cemeteries. Some have
simply fallen to the ravages of age with no one to care for the
gravestones. In some cases, buildings were erected on top of old
cemetery sites. Most disturbingly, in several cases, gravestones were
taken >from cemeteries and used as paving blocks or building materials.

Some localities have begun efforts to reclaim gravestones and
refurbish Jewish cemeteries. However, the JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry on JewishGen includes listings for only 6,044 burials
in 35 cemeteries in Kovno Gubernia. Since the Jewish population of
Kovno Gubernia in 1897 was 212,666, you can see that hundreds of
thousands of graves have been lost or destroyed. Searching for
cemeteries is not likely to be the best method for finding information.

If you write again with more specific information, there are probably
people in this group who can offer more helpful suggestions.

Good luck - Judith Singer

I'm trying to find a grave in Lithuania and wanted to know where Kovno gubernia
would be located so that I could find a cemetery in the appropriate area. I have
no information other than Kovno Gubernia and do not know the Shetel the family
lived in.
