Book: Hachshara and Youth Aliyah Sweden 1933-1948 #scandinavia

Judith Diamond
 

The book 'Pa vag till Israel' was written by my uncle Emil Glu(e)ck who
was the prime mover of the Hachshara in Sweden, and
documentedtheassisted migration of Jewish youth >from Nazi Germany, the
planning and organization of their agricultural training, Jewish
education and continued migration to Palestine. It also described the
work to rehabilitate and reintegrate young Jewish survivors >from the
Polish and German concentration camps in the aftermath of thewar.  Emil
was able in later years to meet again some of the chalutzim and gives in
the book a short biography of a few of them.

The English translation 'Hachshara and Youth Aliyah in Sweden
1933-1948' has a full index of all names mentioned.
It was translated, edited and produced in In 2016 by a number of Emil's
family, for the benefit of the family, but we feel that the story, told
by those who were intimately involved, should have a wider audience. It
is now available at cost on-line >from a print-on-demand company or
elsewhere.

Ancestry Two New Records Collections From Arolesen Archives on the Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

At the 39th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, Ancestry
announced a new partnership with Arolsen Archives, formerly known as the
International Tracing Service (ITS). The partnership provided two new
Holocaust-related databases that are indexed and are free access-i.e. you do
not require a subscription to access these databases, however, you do have
to register with name, email address and password.

The two databases are:
1.Lists of Those Persecuted 1939-1947-. This collection consists of
foreigners and German persecutees in Germany between 1939-1947 who were
persecuted by public institutions, social securities and companies. The
records may also include information on those who died, including burial
information. The documents were assembled according to the Zones of
Occupation - American, British, French and Soviet - by the Allied forces
within Germany. Areas outside Germany were also recorded. These initial
records are >from the American sector. The other sectors: will be added at a
later date.

2. Passenger Lists 1946-1971-these are lists of displaced persons mostly
traveling >from a resettlement camp to a final destination-often the United
States. The collection consists of passenger lists of immigrants leaving
Germany and other European ports and airports between 1946-1971. The
majority of the immigrants listed in this collection are displaced persons -
Holocaust survivors, former concentration camp inmates and Nazi forced
laborers, as well as refugees >from Central and Eastern European countries
and some non-European countries.

Many of the immigrants listed in the collection fall outside the ITS
(International Tracing Service) mandate.

The records in this collection are organized by Resettlement Camp location
where immigrants began their journey.

The passenger list Africa, Asia and Europe, Passenger Lists of Displaced
Persons, 1946-1971 and Europe, Registration of Foreigners and German
Persecutees, 1939-1947 are predominately in German with some English.

Go to: https://www.ancestry.com/cs/alwaysremember When you find the
person you are searching, a new window opens and the record appears. Click
on the image of the record. When the image opens you can click on the tools
icon on the right to print or download. If you want to save it to your

Offering Photos / Research at Mount Zion Cemetery, Maspeth , New York #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to be heading back to Mt Zion Cemetery in Maspeth, Queens, New York and
am willing to take photos for people.

I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Mount Zion has a database where you can start with your research but be
aware while the year is always correct, their database defaults to the first day of
the month when a date is not specified or the first day of the year when a month is
not specified. So if they did not have complete data when they were entering the
person into the database you might see the date as the first or it as January 1
when your research says a different date >from the death certificate or such.
Also a lot of times the date differs >from the death certificate because the
database mostly has date of burial not date of death.

I am pretty good at finding my way around in Mount Zion but some spots can allude
even the best searcher. But still I try. Infants, babies and children are the most
difficult because a lot of times they did not have as significant stones and they
do not survive the years. Some areas of Zion also unfortunately do not have maps.

Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write with a
common name and say can you find for example Harry Cohen .... you can guess how
many there are in this cemetery. Mount Zion Cemetery has more than 210,000 burials
on its 78 acres.

If you know it is a child's grave please identify it as such when you contact me.

I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help off set the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of these
repeated searches add up on me.

I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me. As I said I have been
through Mount Zion enough to know what's possible and also some tricks on how to
locate people in the database.
