Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Do you recognize these people? #lithuania

Martha Forsyth
 

I have posted some old photos on ViewMate, and am hoping someone can
help me identify the people depicted. (I suspect that the first three
are my great-grandmother and great-aunt - if that's the proper term -
but the only thing I can guess is that their name might have been
TILESHEVSKY/TELESHEVSKY - since my grandmother's name was reported to us
as TILESHEFSKY.) Although the first three photos were taken in
Ekaterinoslav, my grandparents were born in Gomel and Cherykaw. And
there was a lot of joking in the family about being Littvaks, so I'm
bringing them to the attention of people in the Litvak SIG.

The last two photos were taken by Mandelkern in New York, and I have no
way to tell where in Russia they might have been from.

You can see the photos here:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. I
also have images of the backs of these photos; so let me know if you
would like to see them (please do this on ViewMate and make sure I know
how to reach you).

All-Galicia Database [Subject provided by Moderator.] #galicia

Henryk Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

Hi,

In All Galicia database (the new search engine), two new fields are
recorded: House number and Congregational Family number. The
old database did not show that. Does anybody know the meaning
of that? What do they represent? If two records show the same
house number / Family Congregational Number does that mean
the people are related?

Thanks for any help,

Erich LOEWE (1889, Breslau - 1981, Neuilly) #germany

Stephen Falk <sfalk81162@...>
 

I am looking for the family descended >from Erich LOEWE who was born in
Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland) in 1889, was a lawyer in Berlin,
fled to France in 1933, and died in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France in 1981.
He was the son of Ludwig LOEWE and Jenny WALZER.

Erich had a daughter born in Paris in 1933. That daughter had a son
and daughter; the daughter born in New York in 1962.

I am hoping to learn more about this LOEWE family:

(a) to see if I can find out whether Ludwig LOEWE was the same Ludwig
LOEWE who was the son of Isaac LOEWE (ca.1813-1889) and Minna
FRIEDLAENDER, and whether this Minna FRIEDLAENDER was the same person
as my first cousin 5 times removed (Minna FRIEDLAENDER, b.1818,
daughter of Gerson FRIEDLAENDER and Charlotte COHN of Rosenberg, Upper
Silesia (Olesno, Poland)); and

(b) because Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) decision reports seem to
suggest that an incorrect family relationship was validated regarding
the family of this Erich LOEWE. Happy New Year. Best regards,

Stephen Falk, Wayne, PA, USA sfalk81162@...

Food packages to Terezin #austria-czech

Robert Fraser asks:
Recently translated postcards sent >from Terezin to Vienna in
1943-4 indicate receipt of foodstuffs posted to the camp by
relatives - flour, sugar, even herrings in wine sauce.

I have a letter >from a cousin of my grandmother Yetti Schroetter,
which documents the food packages he sent her while she was in
Theresienstadt and contains her responses and thanks. He survived the
war in Vienna, but she perished in July of 1944.

Re Robert Fraser's report on good parcels to Terezin:

My grandfather's sister, Ernestina Aufrichtig Kahn, was deported >from Vienna
to Terezin with her husband Rudolf. Her brother, Josef Aufrichtig, regularly
sent parcels of food to her, as well as his brother Franz in another camp. I
have a large collection of postcards >from Theres to Josef thanking him for
these items, together with Josef's receipts for packages he had sent. The
receipts far outweigh the number of postcards received in return. My family
has always believed that only some of the food parcels actually got through
- those that did, being part of the SS propaganda to dispel reports of
atrocities.

What we have established, however, is that several of Ernestina's postcards
were held back and then franked many, many weeks after they had been
written. Some had been censored - including one in which she mentioned her
husband by name when writing to tell Josef of his death. The name Rudolf had
been erased and "Liebe Mann" substituted. One postcard >from her was cruelly
date-stamped seven weeks after she had been despatched >from Terezin to
Auschwitz and gassed.

Nothing could ever convince me that the SS had anything other than ulterior
motives when selectively permitting food parcels to get through.
