Film Vienna's Lost Daughters #austria-czech

MPERLNY@...
 

An Austrian produced documentary entitled Vienna's Lost Daughters will
premiere next month at the Diagonale Film Festival in Graz, Austria. It is the
story of eight Viennese born women who were forced to flee Vienna in 1938/1939,
and now live in the New York metropolitan area. The film depicts their lives
in the USA, as well as their feelings towards their birthplace. The film will
be released in theaters throughout Austria, and will eventually be shown at
film festivals worldwide. More details about the film and autobiographical
sketches of the women can be found at _www.viennaslostdaughters.at_
(http://www.viennaslostdaughters.at) . The web site is in German and English.

A trailer of the film was shown on May 4, 2006, at the Letter to the Stars
memorial program at Vienna's Stephansplatz. My mother, Susanne Perl nee
Spritzer is one of the women featured in the film.

Refering to the Baden Jewish Cemetery Pictures it would be most helpful to
contact the Jewish Community of Baden on office@juedischegemeinde.at, since
the community is in hold of a complete database of the more than 2.200
buried people, that indicates date of death, place of death, country of
origin, residence, etc. The database of the Jewish Community of Vienna
(Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien) is neither complete nor does it include
further information. The location of graves through the burial places
indicates in the Kultusgemeinde data base is not possible.

We would as well be interested who has taken the pictures of the cemetery,
since the keys have not be obtained with the office of the Jewish Community
or the Hewra Kadischa Baden.

List of 1754 Prague Jews #austria-czech

Zimmer-Luedinghausen@t-online.de <Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...>
 

A few days ago Henry Wellisch wrote about an interesting article about
the 1754  fire in Prague in which large parts of the ghetto were
destroyed.

This article appeared in the "Jahrbuch der Gechichte der Juden in der
Cechoslovakischen Republik, VI Jahrgang, 1934".
In this article you can find a list of Jewish owners of destroyed
properties and the amount of their damages.

This list is a good means to compare the names of the Prague Jews you
find about 40 years later in the census of 1792/94. Some people are
still there, others already dead (or not mentioned) other again appear
under differnt names.

Anybody interested in this list should not bother to find this article
through interlibrary loan etc.
It can be found online:

Go to the following address. http://www.compactmemory.de/

Here you find not only this publication but also a lots of other
interesting jewish newspapers, journals, yearbooks etc.

Perhaps some of you alredy know this address and made already use of it.

Check it regualarly, it is updated regularly.

I would like to let you know that the February 2007 issue of Sharsheret
Hadorot (Vol.21, No.1) has just appeared.

Dr. Jeff Malka presents us with a wide range of Sephardic family names,
their various types and the changes that occurred with them in accordance to
the time and place they were used.

Dr. Michael Toben contributes on the immigration of Jews >from Eastern Europe
to London’s East End.

Professor Daniel Wagner reports on the fascinating work that a group of
Polish and Israeli volunteers are carrying out in the restoration of the
unique cemetery of his ancestral town of Zdunska Wola, Poland.

Ms. Rose Feldman describes a project that deals with Pages of Testimony that
Yad Vashem has posted on the Internet.

Mr. Israel Pickholtz delineates the new restrictions that the Ministry of
the Interior has placed on access to records vital to genealogists.

Finally the late Mark Usden wrote on Detective Work on the Dorins.
Closing this issue we have the abstracts of articles on Jewish genealogy
from around the world; the short story by Dr. Yehuda Klausner of an incident
from the rabbinic world; the column by our librarian Mrs. Harriet Kasow and
a book review on the interesting book by Dr. Edward Gelles of London.

Dear Mark,

the German Memorial Book for the Victims of the Holocaust allows
searches for birth places. So, if you, e.g. enter the German name for
Tallinn "Reval" you get 6 entries for victims with the birth place Tallinn:

BANDE, Helene (* 19.10.1884)
BAUDE, Helene (* 20.10.1884)

FRANKL, Jenny (* 08.10.1883)
LEO, Marie (* 25.12.1879)
TENNENBAUM, Lea (* 10.10.1875)

There may be more >from other places.

Let me know if you are interested in their details. with kind regards
