my book #hungary

g_hirsch@...
 

Dear H-SIG-ers
Some of you might be interested in my Book of Bekescsaba. In 2011 it was published in German "Als 14-jaehriger durch Auschwitz-Birkenau", two years later 2013 Â in Hungarian "Bekescsaba, Auschwitz-Birkenau, retur" and in 2018 followed by the English version "Bekescsaba - Auschwitz-Birkenau and back. The German and English versions are available by amazon.com and by amazon.de. Here is the editorial revue >from amazon.com .

Gabor Hirsch was born into a Neolog-Jewish family in Bekescsaba in 1929, where he spent the early years of his childhood. On June 29/1944/ at the age of 15 GÃ¥bor Hirsch was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Hungarian authorities, along with 2,000 other Jews of his hometown, including his mother, grandmother, aunt, and cousins. More than one hundred of the deported children were killed in the gas chambers upon arrival. Gabor Hirsch was among the few who were considered qualified to work and thus remained imprisoned in Birkenau until the liberation.
The book Gabor Hirsch set out to write is not a traditional memoir. Rather, it is a detailed and meticulously researched history of the life of the Jewish people in BÊkÊscsaba before and during the Holocaust. Supported by painstakingly pieced together sources including documents, newspaper articles, and transport lists >from numerous different archives, as well as testimonies of other survivors, Hirsch succeeds in piecing together a mosaic of local history previously skimmed over by historical researchers. In a unique way, the historical background is interwoven with scenes of personal remembrance, including selections on the high religious holidays in the Gypsycamp and the last months of his mother's life.

All the best

Koenigsberg and East Prussia #lithuania

Salinger Ralph
 

Dr. Ruth Leiserowitz and her husband Michael are doing incredible things in
Kaliningrad [once Koeningsburg] collecting the Jewish memory of this area.
So many Lithuanian Jews either had links or passed through here.
If any of your family had links with Koeningsburg or towns and villages
there that were once in East Prussia please can you contact them at their
website
http://www.judeninostpreussen.de/front_content.php?idcat=203

Or to Michael at mleiserowitz@leiserowitz.de

Ruth is a historical researcher had has donated Lithuanian material she has
discovered to Litvak SIG so perhaps we can help them in return.

With many thanks

U.S. naturalizations covering spouses #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. I've posted a while back about a great-great-grandfather
of mine about whom I've got good U.S. records in certain respects
(censuses 1910-1940, marriage certificate, children's birth
certificates, death certificate...) but have had a heck of a time
finding other records.

One such record has been his naturalization. I've found that for
probably every other family branch, but not him. He was a successful
construction businessman in Newark and was in the U.S. for decades.
It's hard to imagine that he was never naturalized. I also had a heck
of a time finding records about him or his second wife and her
daughter apart >from the 1940 census.

The other night, I finally saw a record come up Ancestry for that
second wife's 1936 naturalization with various bits of info to plug
into Ancestry, how exciting! It even provides her spouse's--my
great-great-grandfather's--information as to when he supposedly
arrived in the U.S.

It occurred to me--is it possible that *this* is actually his
naturalization as well, covered by his wife? Interestingly, Henry is
indicated as being naturalized already in the 1910 and 1920 censuses,
but is indicated as being "alien" in the 1930 census! (Yes, I realize
that specifics provided on the censuses should be taken with grains of
salt.)

So his wife's 1936 naturalization notes her husband and when he
arrived (I'm still having trouble finding him in arrival records via
Ancestry--various other Henry Gottliebs of course come up, I'm not
confident that any are he), but there's nothing that suggests that
he's already a citizen or not.

Help?

(Her naturalization is under her married name of Jenny Gottlieb,
naturalization formalized 1936. She was born in Vienna in 1883,
arrived in NYC in 1909. Spouse is my great-great-grandfather Henry
Gottlieb. They live in Newark at this time--he'd been there for
decades, living in NYC around the turn of the century. His birth year
is given here as 1879, though over the decades I found records
indicated a 10-year range of his year of birth, >from 1874-1884, oy.
This says that he arrived in NYC on March 12, 1896, supposedly...!)

(Netherlands) Europe's Drought Results in Gravestones Visible that Were Hidden Previously #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Europe is having a prolonged heatwave and drought this summer. As a result
it has exposed buried gravestones, and the historic Beth Haim Portuguese
(Sephardic) Jewish cemetery at Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, located near
Amsterdam is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the Netherlands. The cemetery was
founded in 1614 and includes over 27,500 burials. The drought exposed stones
that had sunken over centuries which now have become visible.
