Mitzvah opportunity: Photograph Max SCHER gravesite #general

Rita Margolies <b4kids@...>
 

I have been trying to track down my pgf's family, Max SCHER, for a long time
now with little success. It would be useful if I had a picture of his stone
so I could at least have his Hebrew name and the Hebrew name of his father.
He is buried at New Montiefore Cemetery, Pinelawn, in Babylon, New York. The
recipt I have says he is in Macpelah Reserve, Sec. 6, Block 6, Row 3 Grave
8R.

If someone can do me the favor of photographing his gravestone or at least
sending me a copy of the information on it, I would be very grateful. I live
in Seattle, and a trip to NYC, never mind Suffolk County, is not feasible
for some time.

TIA

German reparations #general

Moshe Goldwaser <mauh2o@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I know this question is not exactly a genealogical one, but I also know
that at least one person in this group would know in what direction to
steer me.
I recently found a "lost" mother of a distant cousin. This Jewish woman,
at the age of 16, came to the States >from Germany at the very end of
1938. Her parents and sister perished at the hands of the Nazis. When
she found out that her entire family perished, she went into a severe
depression and ended up for the next 50 years in a series of mental
institutions. Her parents had a large estate in Germany. Can anyone in
the group direct me towards an attorney in the New York City or Phoenix,
AZ area, who would specialize and handle a claim for reparations >from
Germany on behalf of this 78 year old woman.

Please get back to me privately.

Hi,

Holocaust Martyrs #hungary

Stephen SCHMIDEG <stephen@...>
 

Dear Friends

On our Gyor community website http://netfind.simplenet.com/gyor we have made some considerable
changes to the original Holocaust martyr list. The list which has over 3,000 names now includes
such details as date and place of birth, maiden name for married women and mother's maiden name.
The last piece of information is particularly useful as the coverage of the database now takes in
greater Hungary.

The list also covers the small towns surrounding Gyor and there is also a listing of child martyrs.

The list has been prepared by Sandor Lonyai >from Budapest, who has devoted five years to compiling
the data and he is still busy expanding it.

The one limitation of the list is that we have had problems converting some of the Hungarian
letters, but we are working on rectifying the problem and also translating some of the headings.
However, if you know your Hungarian alphabet and place names, you should have no problems
deciphering it.

Regardless of our concern about the "Protocols" we need to limit the topic

Warren Blatt has informed me of the following and I pass it

Warren writes:
Both Amazon and B&N *ARE* selling the original "Protocols"
(translations of the original, put out by hate groups).

Specifically, see:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0685175073/qid=954232427/sr=1-3/104-5

The difference is the B&N has classified this book under "Antisemitism"
and "Hate Literature", while Amazon had classified it under "Jews" and
"Politics and Government" until today. Just within the past few hours,
Amazon put up a disclaimer stating "Amazon.com does not endorse the views
expressed in this book or those in the publisher's book description", and
changes the classification to "Anti-Semitism" and "Controversial
Knowledge", but it does continue to sell it.

Thank you Warren. I went back to both sites and they are very different
than what I saw when I simply entered Protocols of the Elders of Zion in
the search field.

In any event, no matter how we feel personally, mounting a campaign to
force bookstores to take books off their shelves, is not our role.

Received this >from a friend: For all of you who sent the Barnes & Noble
boycott email. Also after this is the email that I sent to this friend
earlier.

To all those that I had e-mailed the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion",
looks like it was a false alarm. See below:

<< Barnes & Noble.com Statement
Regarding "PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION"
March 22, 2000

In recent weeks some Barnes & Noble.com customers have expressed concern
about the classification of a book titled "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"
on our Web site, and certain accompanying reviews. Many reports have
erroneously stated that this title is classified on our site as "Judaica."
In fact, this book has no such classification. However, >from time to time
Barnes & Noble.com receives copies of the book >from out-of-print dealers who
classify it as "Jew" or "Judaica," but we remove these classifications as
soon as possible and notify the dealers in questions that this is wholly
inappropriate. In addition, the reviews in question have been removed from
the site after careful review by our editors.

Barnes & Noble.com has worked closely with members of the Jewish community
to correct the misinformation regarding this issue. Below, reproduced with
his permission, is a statement of support >from Rabbi Eric A. Silver of
Temple Beth David in Cheshire, Conn. We thank Rabbi Silver for his
assistance in this matter:

"At no time did any anti-Semitic intent color Barnes and
Noble's actions in this matter, and in fact, I think they are to be
absolutely believed on this score. This company carries many books, and
each book has its adherents and its detractors. The company's initial
response to me was to cite First Amendment freedoms, and indicate that they
would carry even controversial books. I would be the first to agree with
that position....

A bit of clarification is in order: very often a book is
classified by its distributor, and Barnes and Noble simply accepts the
classification. An out of print version of "Protocols" that carries the
label "Judaica" will be classified that way on the Internet.... That's a far
cry >from malice. Similarly, if it finds its way onto a shelf in a retail
store, there are obvious reasons why the manager would place it in the
Judaica area. The title itself is misleading, and pity the poor store
manager who obviously doesn't have the time to read every single book in the
store.

I think we're done with this issue, and in the best possible
way. Please-don't boycott Barnes and Noble. They don't deserve it. They
are honest book merchants who go out of their way to provide the reading
public with the best in books and service. At no time in any of this was
there even a scintilla of malicious intent. Occasionally even a good
company will slip up, but once B&N became aware of the book's true nature,
they acted with alacrity. The fake review was pulled, and the book is being
appropriately identified. I want to commend Barnes and Noble for cleaning
up their own act, and I also want to commend the many of you out there who
have taken the time to let B&N know of your concern. More than anything
else, it proves that this is a company that listens to its customers, and
that's what good business is all about."

I have received this email >from numerous sources and have refused to
circulate it as I do not believe in censorship. Along with "The Protocols
of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion" there is also a book "A Lie
and a Libel: A History of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion" which is
also carried by B & N. At my B&N (in Ventura), the first book is not in
stock and cannot be ordered and second one is also not in stock but can be
ordered. I have not bothered to look up to see if they carry books about
the KKK under Black Literature (if there is such a category) or under
African-American Literature. The wonderful thing about living in the USA is
freedom - what the upcoming holiday of Pesach is all about.

Records from Vilnius #lithuania

Hildy Sanders <hksanders@...>
 

Yesterday the reply came >from Vilnius, and I couldn't wait to open the
letter! I had sent my request to the State Archives last summer, and I
received a list of over 50 records.

I would like some LitvakSiggers who have already ordered records to give
some advice to me. First of all, what does "You can book the copies
without translation..." mean? Is this just a photocopy of the record?
If you have already received photocopies, would you please tell me if
the quality is clear enough to be read? If one has a model of the
standard form, and the English translation, that was used for that type
of record, can one then understand the record >from the photocopy?

Thanks for your help.

Yesterday the reply came >from Vilnius, and I couldn't wait to open the
letter! I had sent my request to the State Archives last summer, and I
received a list of over 50 records.

I would like some LitvakSiggers who have already ordered records to give
some advice to me. First of all, what does "You can book the copies
without translation..." mean? Is this just a photocopy of the record?
