Sarah ABRAMS and Sam COHEN #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Anyone a descendant of Sarah (ABRAMS) and/or Sam COHEN who married in
Boston on June 24, 1903? Sam was a divorcee when he married Sarah. My
guess is that it was a first marriage for her.

I am looking for a scan or high quality picture of the town map
contained in the Yizkor book for Teleneshti :

The online map uploaded to the Yizkor Book Translation Database is of
poor quality. I am collecting and translating into English all
available maps for the towns of Bessarabia. As completed, they are
being uploaded to the Map Section of the Bessarabia Sig website. If
you have a copy of this book and can help, please contact me

whether Weydekamp's family name is Jews descendent?
No. However you cannot take a surname to show descendence, you need to know the
ancestors.

i have checked it in JewishGen database and i just got the similiar surnames
results
A [Dutch] Jew can have any surname, only common Jewish names give a hint, and just
that. Especially during the French Napoleontic occupation, some typically jewish
names were adopted by non-jews.

such as Weide, Kamp, Wedekamp, etc.
Usually "van der Weide", "van der Kamp", btw.

It's been a long long time since I needed to turn to JewishGen for my research.
But as before, the response was incredibly helpful. This time in my search for the
Nachmann's and the Joseph's, I was just as amazed at the wonderful and enthusiastic
replies that I received as I had been in the past. So thank you JewishGen and
thanks to each and every one of you who jumped in so willingly and came up with
the information I needed.and more.
Gratefully,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

There were no good choices for Jews after Germany and the Soviet Union signed the
Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of 1939 that carved up Poland, Lithuania and other
countries into spheres of influence. (A main German aim in the pact was the
"nonaggression" agreement between the two countries that allowed Germany to turn
its attention to other targets - until Hitler ended it by attacking Soviet
positions in Poland). As Germany tightened its grip on Poland, many Polish Jews
sought refuge in Soviet-occupied Lithuania. Among them were the Drucker brothers
who found themselves "lost, wet, hungry and exhausted" along the Polish-Lithuanian
border. That was only the start of their hardships, according to "Residence in
Siberia," a chapter >from the Yizkor book of Jordanow in southern Poland, 30 miles
south of Krakow. First they were betrayed by a farmer at the border and turned over
to the Soviets who detained them in prison and then condemned them to three years
forced labor. After what seemed like a "never-ending" trip of many weeks in railway
cars with barred windows, they arrived at a camp where lack of food, lack of
medicine and harsh weather caused many prisoners to be sick and physically drained
by the hard work. This is the story of the Druckers' ordeal and that of those who
suffered along with them, and how they learned to cope and survive..

Since May 1945 some of the elementsary schools in Prague became centers
for DP / returnees >from the camps. That could be the case also for the
school of J.V.Rais (named after a Czech writer) located at Vinohradska
street today (earlier Foche's street, then Schwerin street during nazi

Searching: Lilli (Lily), daughter of Emma (nee Krause) and Otto Heller #austria-czech

tomnavon@...
 

Dear friends and colleagues,

As part of my research about Otto Heller (1897-1945), the Austrian
communist of Jewish origin, I am looking for a contact with his only
daughter Lilli, or any of her descendants or relatives.

Lilli (or Lily) was born probably in the late 1920's. In the late
1930's she was in exile in France together with her parents. In 1943
Otto was deported to Auschwitz, and Lilli with her mother Emma to
Ravensbrueck (a women concentration camp in Germany). Otto did not
survive, but Lilli and Emma were liberated and came back to live in
Paris.

Since the information about Heller is scarce - any connection to the
family could be very helpful.

Please pass this message over to anyone that might have any idea how
to reach Lilli or other relatives.

If you have any information that could lead to Lilli, or another
relative - please contact me through tomnavon@gmail.com

Gratefully,
Tom Navon
