Some of you may want to visit a website that was just announced in the
latest set of messages I've received >from the EEJH mail group. This
website, using information provided by Dr. Felix A. Theilhaber, concerns
Jewish aviators who flew and fought for Germany during WW I. Dr.
Theilhaber wrote and published a book about Jewish aviators during that
war which was not well received. He later settled in Palestine. See:

http://people.sinclair.edu/thomasmartin/knights/index.htm


The presentations have notes and pictures of Willie Rosenstein, Wilhelm
Frankel Friedrich Rudenberg, Fritz Beckhardt, Berthold Guthmann, and
Immanuel Saul. This website's viewers are invited to share what they may
know about Jewish fighter pilots during the "Great War."

The site also has a link to still another relevant URL entitled "Jewish
Quandary." It concerns Jewish soldiers of the German/Austrian/Hungarian
Empires. See:

http://judischequandry.tripod.com/

from this URL one can "click" to two sub-sites, one about German Jewish
soldiers, and the other about Austro-Hungarian Jewish soldiers.

Luboml Documentary #lithuania

Eileen Douglas <faithdouglas@...>
 

Dear LitvakSiggers, For those of you who would find a documentary
showing and celebrating shtetl life intriguing to watch, I want to let
you know of several showings of our new film "Luboml:My Heart
Remembers".

/Channel 21, one of the New York television stations, will air the documentary at 10 p.m. on April 29th, which is Holocaust Remembrance Day.WLIW is viewed in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. ..and for some, I am told, on Direct TV.

The History Channel in Israel will broadcast the Luboml documentary at 7:20 p.m. on April 29th, and we take that as a great honor to be their Holocaust Remembrance presentation.

In addition, there is a screening on April 23rd in New York City as part of the Anthology Film Series. The film is shown at 6:30 at the Anthology Theater at 2nd Avenue and 2nd Street, with a Q-and-A with my partner and myself to follow.

Other broadcasts may follow in other locations. And a screening at the Cinemateque in Tel Aviv is also in the works.

Lastly, Cinema Guild is the distributor and they make arrangements for screenings and rental or sales of videos. We do not share in this revenue, but I would direct anyone who wants more information to www.cinemaguild.com.

We have had a marvelous journey to the once vibrant world of our Eastern European roots and hope all those we can watch will enjoy what we have already had the pleasure of being part of bringing to the screen.

Re: names: Zelek and Menashe #general

BRZOZA means "birch" (the tree) in Polish.

My great-grandmother's sister was married to a Zelek BRZOZA in 1893

At this point, I don't know if this was a name change or a second

My questions are:
1) What does BRZOZA mean in polish?
2) While his name could have been Zelek Menashe (or the inverse), was
this combination at all common (such as Menachem Mendel)?

Udi,

I believe that phonetically and geographically, town Radoszka at 5316

Please accept my apologies for providing misleading information.

Town identified in the text as located at 5316 1938 should read: Radoszki
(not Radoszka).

But on the other hand, my guts "talk" appeared to be correct:
*Radoska* is located less than 2 mile SE >from Radoszyce.

Bobby,

I asked some Hungarian friends to have a look at it.
It's not Hungarian. It's not Russian, nor German (as you already know).
My friends said it *might* be Serbian, but were not too sure about it.

Good luck!

P.S. Let's know when/if you find out what language it is.

JGSLA April 21 Meeting has Warren Blatt as guest Speaker #general

janmallen@...
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles (JGSLA) April 21 meeting
will feature two presentations by Warren Blatt, editor-in-chief of
JewishGen: "Introduction to JewishGen Databases" and "Jewish Given Names".

Mr. Blatt has been doing Jewish genealogical research for over 25 years;
has done extensive work with Polish and Russian records, including many
indexing projects. He is the author of the "JewishGen FAQ: Frequently
Asked Questions about Jewish Genealogy"; dozens of JewishGen InfoFiles;
"Resources for Jewish Genealogy in the Boston Area" (JGSGB, 1996); and
co-author (with Gary Mokotoff) of "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy"
(Avotaynu, 1999).

The main presentation, beginning at 7:30 p.m., is "An Introduction to
JewishGen Databases". Mr. Blatt will provide an introduction to using
JewishGen's most popular databases: the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF),
the JewishGen ShtetlSeeker; the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP),
and the JewishGen Discussion Group message archives. This session will
take you step-by-step through the process of using JewishGen's internet
databases: how to search the databases, and how to add your own data.

In addition, Mr. Blatt will do a pre-meeting presentation, beginning at
6:30 p.m., on "Jewish Given Names", to discuss: religious and secular
names, naming traditions, name relationships and transformations.

Date & Time: Monday, April 21, 2003
7:30 p.m. pre-meeting: 6:30 p.m.
