JewishGen Mourns with the Community #unitedkingdom

Avraham Groll
 

More light. More life.

These are the words borne on the emblem of the Tree of Life * Or
L'Simcha Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA. They stand for that Jewish
community's daily mission and work, mode of worship, hope for the
world, and rallying cry.

This Shabbat morning, the Tree of Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation
suffered an anti-Semitic act of terror in which eleven people were
murdered, and many more people were hurt in ways apparent and deep.

The community of JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish Heritage -- A
Living Memorial to the Holocaust mourn those who were lost. We offer
support to those hurt and grieving and wish a full recovery for those
congregants and police officers injured.

We stand by a Jewish community whose sense of security was shattered
in a sacred space. In doing this, we take up the words of the Tree of
Life * Or L'Simcha Congregation itself. May these words guide all of
us in our responsibility to repair our world. More light. More life.

Re: Prague police prison camps (Rais-School?) #austria-czech

Barbara_Elkeles@...
 

Dear Martin,

thank you for your quick answer. I was aware of Raisova Skola as internment
camp for Germans after liberation >from NS-occupation and of its terrible
conditions.

But there is an early file of Berlin magistrate where Hans Schayer applied
for help as a victim of Nazi-terror starting in October 1945, only 5 months
after liberation. In a form >from Oct 6, 1945 is written that he was
imprisoned at Prague Baysta scola (???) >from 19.08.1944 to 12.05.1945.

The file contains also a document of the Military Commando, Prague,
internment, Rais-school, Prague XII street of marshal Stalin >from Prague,
may 12th 1945
"Name: Hans Schayer, born Berlin Jun 3 1891, responsible: Berlin, living
Prague, Manesgasse 28 is dismissed >from interment today. Reason: fully
Jewish nationality"
That was only 4 days after capitulation and 3 days after invasion of the red
army.
Do you know when the internment camp at Raisova Skola was opened after
liberation >from Nazi occupation? I once read that former Police-prisons from
Nazi-occupation later were used as internment camps. Is it possible, that
this was also true for Raisova Skola?

Thank you again for your help

Another Discussion Group: "Jews in the Military?" #austria-czech

Madeleine Isenberg
 

An open letter to all:

from reading/responding to messages in discussion groups and observing
(e.g., ViewMate) photos of people in uniforms, at a minimum, I believe
JewishGen has a research gap that needs to be filled with another
topical Special Interest Group (SIG) and an associated discussion
group, focused on Jews who served in the world's militaries.

Many served with distinction and deserve to have their stories told
and their accomplishments memorialized. If not conscripted into
service, reasons for enlistment varied: Some joined their nation's
armed forces in search of adventure, others to escape poverty, flee
failed relationships, avoid servitude and even incarceration. Many
were patriots, some were rogues, all were conscious that to be a Jew
among gentiles on the battle carried with it risks often made worse by
the specter of antisemitism. Whatever the case, military service is,
and always has been, an essential part of the Jewish family story.
Wherever in the world your family members served, capturing this
dimension of their lives is a responsibility we all share as
genealogists. Let us honor their heroism and their sacrifices by
chronicling their names and recognizing their contributions to both
the Jewish heritage and the legacy of the nations they served.

While JewishGen has JOWBR that might record just an end of life event
(mostly Americans in the military, at this time); and sections of
Yizkor books might mention a few who fought; and KehilaLinks pages
might include a few stories, there is no consolidated topical group
that can serve as a focal point for research, data acquisition and
information sharing!

If you are interested in participating in the
creation/development/maintenance of this new enterprise, please
contact me, Madeleine Isenberg, at: mrizbiz@gmail.com. I would be
grateful if you could get back to me by November 16, 2018, with your
reactions. The results should help JewishGen's management consider the
viability of such an enhancement to its offerings.
