LIPOVITZ in KIEV #ukraine

Paul Prescott
 

Hi everyone,
when I placed my last message in July this year I was grateful to
receive a number of replies offering me advice and if I forgot to
thank anyone personally I would like to thank you very much now.

One of the replies I received informed me that there is in fact
a place in Kiev Gubernia called LIPOVITZ. Does anyone have any
information about LIPOVITZ in Kiev or know where I might find
any information about this place, as although I have done searches
I am unable to find any information?

Thank you all in advance
Kind Regards,
Sue Prescott,

On the Jewish Geneal. site, there is a section for DNA of Jews to test
their American Indian ancestry. The reason is that Jews >from the
Siberian and other areas are related to people who migrated into N.
America and became known as Amer. Indians. I had a DNA test by
DNAtribes.com and came up with American Indian, specifically, Ojebwe who
are part of the Chipawa nation and pinpointed in Minnesota. Many Jewish
family have Asian blood and features. I also came up with Italian,
French, S. E. Asian and Korean and Japanese. The Japanese and I think
it's the Finn's or Norwegians have their own DNA markers so if one comes
up with those, you're it! I also have other mixtures. Ghengis Khan
alone went through Europe like water through a goose. Plus, even in the
Mideast, which I came up with Syrian, Asians, blacks, and others were
intermingled with Jews/Hebrews. Many early Jewish men, merchants, to
France, in the Marseilles region, prior to even Jesus's birth, were
located in those areas and took gentile wives. After 7 years, the
period when Judaism states that slaves must be released by their Jewish
masters, the men married the women and converted them. I also came up
with high Ashkenazy genes. Remember, there were a lot of Jews in
Greece and Turkey. And, there were many converts >from Judaism to Islam
under threat of death. There were also thousands of Romans who converted
to Judaism until the Pope stopped it.

I recently watch the National Geographic Family Tree special and they
took DNA >from people in Coney Island, NY or Queens and one they took
from was a Turkish man. It turned out he was mostly Ashkenazy Jewish
and he was not pleased. Attaturk, the founder of modern day Turkey is
said to have been >from a Sephardic Jewish family.

the kids didn't want to play ball with him because they thought
he was Korean and didn't speak English.

I've tried googling the history of the Jewish community in Turkey,

about Arthur Koestler's theory ...

Re: Auschwitz tattoo numbers photography project #hungary

g_hirsch@...
 

I am somewhat late with my respond, I was hindered because of my knee surgery.

The project to collect pictures of the Auschwitz tattoos are not so new.
In October 1995 some survivor in Switzerland decided to found an organization
"Kontaktstelle fuer Ueberlebende des Holocaust". A German artist heard >from our
2nd meeting and asked us if we would allow to take fotos of our tattoos. Some of
us were against the project, but may be about 15 were willing. The artist, Beata
Passow collected several others tattoos too. One of her exhibitions was held in
Dachau, probably in 1997 and an other was in October 13. 1999 - January 16. 2000
in "MAK Center for art and architecture" West Hollywood with the title "Numbers by
Beata Passow".

Four of her pictures taken in our meeting is also on the front and the last page of
the book written by Revital Ludewig-Kedmi, Miriam Victory Spiegel and Silvie Tyrangiel
"Das Trauma des Holocaust zwischen Psychologie und Geschichte".

In the püublication "Hefte von Auschwitz 20" there is a list with numbers of twins,
triplets and dwarfs, with their names and some dates and "Auschwitz Chronicle" from
Danuta Czech mentions the numbers distributed on a certain dates, in general
without any details. ITS / Arolsen documents contains also the camp numbers.

Dear H-siggers,

Some of you might have seen me with two badges at the 29th IAJGS
Conference.
One was the Philly2009 badge and the other one had a photograph of an arm
bearing a number. The latter was to promote awareness in a new project.
Gabriella Y. Karin, a sculptor and Holocaust survivor (and my aunt), began
this project because she realized that there is no visual catalogue that
identifies the survivors of Auschwitz.
