Typesetter SQUARENINA #austria-czech

My g-g-g-g-grandfather, Michael SQUARENINA (1774-1870), born and buried in
Nadasch [1],was a Hebrew typesetter, and worked for the famous printer
Anton Edler von Schmid in Pressburg (Bratislava, Slovakia) and in Vienna.

I recently got a report by a relative who wrote, in 1957:
"Michael was a master printer and he produced the first Hebrew Sidurim
(prayer books) known to be printed in the Austrian Empire. Speciments of
his craftsmanship, dating back to the late 18th century, and bearing his
imprint, were amongst the treasures of the library of Leipzig
(Bibliographische Institut)...."
(The end of this paragraph is missing)

Does anyone knows where else I might look for the books (besides Israeli
universities), or has a link to the catalogue (or even mailing address)
of the Leipzig Bibliographische Institut ?


Dear Tomer,

"Bibliographisches Institut" in Leipzig does not refer to a library but
to a publishing house that used to publish the official German
dictionary on German orthography, usually referred to as "Duden". After
the German separation in two Germanies the publishing house continued to
publish in the then German Democratic Republic (DDR), even though in
West Germany the "Duden" publishers had opened up a new publishing house
"Bibliographisches Institut" in Mannheim. For the duration of the German
separation these two publishing houses with the same name and two German
Duden orthography dictionaries were fighting and published their
respective version of German orthography, After reunification the West
German publishers, now called "Duden Verlag" bought up the East German
publishers, and a few weeks ago I read that the last four jobs left of
the old publishers in Leipzig were closed down.

I find it likely that the text on Michael is >from an encyclopedia that
was published by the Bibliographische Institut Leipzig at some point in
time.

I hope that helps to stop you >from continuing to look for a library in
Leipzig that never existed. Where the archives of the Leipzig archives
went is another question, but even there they would not have a specific
book of your relative.

With kind regards

Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

Pinkas HaKehillot for Latvia and Estonia #general

Joyce Field
 

We are pleased to report that Shalom Bronstein has compiled a table of contents
for the Pinkas HaKehillot volume on Latvia and Estonia. You can find it at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Pinkas_latvia/pinkas_latvia.html

The chapters (very few, you will note) which have already been translated are
highlighted in blue and by clicking on the town name you will be taken directly
to the translation.

It is our hope that the table of contents will inspire people to translate
additional chapters. Please contact me directly when you have decided on a
chapter to translate so that I can get permission >from Yad Vashem, which is
pro forma and takes only a day or two.

Latkes #poland

Sally Goodman <sbgoody@...>
 

My parents came >from Vienna. Their parents and great grandparents came
from Jaroslaw, Rzeszow, Nikolsburg and Stryj. My mother (age 91) has
no clue about my father's family but she doesn't remember anyone in her
family ever eating latkes with anything but sour cream and applesauce
except for me. I wouldn't eat sour cream or applesauce as a child so she
put sugar on my latkes to get me to eat them. To this day, I eat them
with sugar. Yummy!

The Latke Chronicles #poland

Bobbie Fromberg <velveteyes@...>
 

My mother's family came >from Mlawa, Poland and my father's was >from
Warsaw and Czestochowa. We ate latkes with TADA salt. I don't know anyone
who doesn't add a little salt to their potatoes. Sour cream or applesauce
.....feh. Just gimme some really good fried in schmaltz latkes with salt
and pepper.

BTW, if you are dieting and want the latkes but not all the grease, my
daughter in law makes them in a teflon waffle iron. Ok, so they look
like waffles, but put a little salt on them and voila, they taste like
latkes without the grease.

Re: Slobodka Yeshiva Pictures #rabbinic

Mr L Reich <lreich@...>
 

In a recent posting, with reference to the history of Slabodka/
Chevron I mentioned a work: "Hamashgiach R' Meir," a biography of
R' Meir Chadash, the Mashgiach of the Chevron Yeshivah,

I mistyped the name of the author as Mizrachi. It should have read,
"written by his daughter Rebbetsen Shulamit EZRACHI."
