Re: Origin of the surname SABA #general

Felice Zadra <felice.zadra@...>
 

Dear Danilo, many Jewish people will tell
you that saba,in Jewish, means grandfather,
and that Saba is a Jewish name. Also, I
would like to tell you that Saba is present
in Italy, in particular in the eastern part,
beyond Venice. What I think is really
important, too, is that Umberto Saba was a
poet, born in Trieste under the Austro-
Hungarian Empire and he won the Nobel Price.
I remember his fantastic lectures at the TV,
when I was a child, about in 1963.

Re: Internment on the Isle of Man #general

Gunther-Steinberg-PV@...
 

Shortly after Britain declared war on Germany in September 1939, all men of
German and Austrian birth were interned, with most or all being sent to the
Isle of Man. Within a short period, those of prime military age, 18-30-35,
were shipped overseas for internment, some to Canada some to Australia.
The British felt they had little time to find out who was an enemy alien
and who was a pro-British immigrant for some time there after. The older
immigrants, mostly German and Austrian Jews were released after background
checks, and went back to their work, when possible. However, if they had
been employed in a defense industry, they were forced to find alternate
employment. Many of the younger ones who were not sent to overseas
internment, and those that became old enough to serve, ended up in the
Pioneer Corps in Britain.

Does anyone have any information about German Jews living in England during
WWII who were interned on the Isle of Man because they were enemy aliens.
My father, Gerhard Rosenstein, spent some time there.

Itka and Cyprysia #general

Jay Cohen
 

Long shot maybe -- but worth asking --

Are the names Itka and Cyprysia related?
Could they be the same person?

My context is trying to connect up a 1839 Suwalki/Lomza marriage record
(Cyprysia) to a 1893 Rajgrod death record of a man born in 1840 who is
possibly her son. The death record, however, records her name as Itka.

Japanese Army Uniform ID; Japanese and Russian text on Russo-Japanese War Photo #general

Steve Cohen <scohen@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners:

Viewmate 1129 and 1130 are the front and back sides of a photograph our
family has in possession. My great-great-uncle was a soldier in the
Russo-Japanese War, was captured, and supposedly treated better by the
Japanese than by the Czar's army. He eventually returned to what is now
Belarus and then America in 1907.

We believe this photo may be of his Japanese captor.

Can anyone identify the regiment, rank, and anything else about the
Japanese officer pictured here?

The text on the back is in VM1130, in Russian and Japanese.

Can anyone offer a transliteration and translation of both the Russian and
Japanese handwriting, and the Japanese stamp?

I suspect that the Russian is a transliteration of (some of) the Japanese,
but my Russian handwriting ability is not what I would like.

Military Uniform ID #lithuania

Richard Allen Avner <a-avner@...>
 

If you are familiar with military uniforms worn during the period from
1900 to 1910 by those fulfilling their military obligation in the region
including present-day Lithuania, please look at the ViewMate picture at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1132.html

Can you provide any information on what type of unit the person wearing
such a uniform might have served in and what his rank might have been?
The uniform is mostly black on black so few details are present in the
ViewMate copy. The original shows enough detail to indicate that he is
armed with a sword and a pistol (the lanyard on the pistol is looped
around his neck).

Please respond directly to me at a-avner@uiuc.edu

Thanks!
