Marek BRENNER (Brener) #germany

Eileen Brenner <kydebren@...>
 

I am seeking information about a great nephew of my Father, Max BRENNER
(born Itzak Mordechai ben Pelta) who remained in Poland with his parents,
Israel & Luba BRENNER. To the best of my knowledge he was born about 1933.
Toward the end of the war, at about age 11 his mother sent him in search of
other family members. He was captured and shot by the German army (perhaps SS).

The child's name was Marek BRENNER (Brener) and an estimate of the date of
death is later 1944 or 1945. I have no further information and being fluent
in neither German, Polish or Russian, I am at a loss as to what further
steps I can take to establish any details.

My Father and his immediate family emmigrated to the USA >from Wysokie in
1921. I do know that Marek had a sister Helena, who survived with a Polish
family and after the war emmigrated to Israel. Helena recently passed away.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks everyone

MODERATOR NOTE: It's pretty sure that you want a different SIG and the JewishGen
list that covers the whole world, not GerSIG. Some parts of Poland were once
in Germany, though, so I'm letting your message go. Please send replies to Ms.
Brenner via private email ** except ** if you know that Wysokie or any of the rest
of this might be on topic to the German SIG. MOD 1

Searching ZIMMERSPITZ Chaskiel Heinrich of Dresden & Lapanow #germany

Randy and Nancy Fox <jessefox7@...>
 

Dear GerSiggers,

I recently discovered >from the Gedenkbuch that my mother's cousin Chaskiel
Heinrich ZIMMERSPITZ, born 07 June 1889 in Lapanow, Bochnia District, Poland
(Galicia), lived in Dresden. He was deported >from Germany with his son
Siegried on 28 October 1938 to the border town of Zbaszyn (formerly
Bentschen), Poland.

Do any of you >from Dresden recognize the name Chaskiel Heinrich ZIMMERSPITZ
or his wife Ester Schneidel nee WALTER?

The last letter we have >from "Heinrich" was written >from 1923 >from Wadowice,
where he was stationed in the Polish army. The envelope was >from "L.
ZIMMERSPITZ" (Leopold?) of Pobiedr, a hamlet just northwest of Paszkowka
near Wadowice, Poland. With kind regards,

Nancy Fox Franklin, Tennessee, USA jessefox7@bellsouth.net

Re: Schlioma/Solomon #general

Wegner, Peter
 

My g-grandfather was Schlioma on 18th century Ukrainian records transliterated for
me by a researcher there. His name here was Solomon.
Joan Rosen

Dear Joan et al.,
I am puzzled by the spelling (or transliteration) Schlioma. One would actually
expect the "o" to come before the "i", since the pronunciation "Shloima" or
"Schloime"is a more or less standard Yiddishization for the Hebrew name Shlomo.

So, is it possible that copying errors have somehow crept in with all these
putative "Shliomas" ? Or is there something in the Ukrainian or Russian language
that would tend to corrupt "Shloima" to "Shlioma"?

Re: Kramuri was: Occupation *Kran* in Polish #general

I do not know any Polish but in Viennese, the word Kramuri means a mess. So
en-famille we used to say "so ein Kramuri" - ie such a mess. If the words Kram and
Kramuri are related, and that seems likely, the occupation could be a junk dealer,
rag and bone man etc and the transition to Viennese dialect may be via yiddish.

Dear Celia,
Kramer in German (with an umlaut over the "a") actually means a shopkeeper or
general dealer -- but i don't know if that would include junk dealers and rag-and-
bone men.

Goeie More, Skatties, on the S. African Sig,

I understand that there may have been some talk on the S. African Sig about
the OCHBERG Orphans, but if so, I missed it as I have been away a few times
in 2007. I am very interested in buying the book, which I hear is
available, and I am wondering where I could buy it. It is not in "Exclusive
Books" in Sandton.
