Honoring JewishGen's Volunteers #latinamerica

bounce-2602464-772964@...
 

Dear Friends,

On June 2, we will be honoring Karen Franklin, Gary Mokotoff, and
Lance Ackerfeld, for their leadership and dedication to JewishGen.

After working with each of these individuals for years, it gives
me great pleasure to see that they will get just a small measure
of the recognition they deserve.

Please join me in honoring them and participate in JewishGen's
Spring Brunch, which be held in New York on June 2. We will
also publish a tribute journal, and I invite you to place an ad.

You can register for the brunch and/or place an ad by calling
646-437-4326, or by visiting http://www.JewishGen.org/Event

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Warren Blatt
Managing Director, JewishGen


Yizkor Book Project, April 2013 #latinamerica

bounce-2603903-772964@...
 

Shalom,

Simply amazing! These are the words that come to mind in regards the Yizkor
Book in Print Project coordinated by Joel Alpert which is presently
celebrating its second year of existence. There are now, no less than 14
books available to be purchased and in the very near future, a further two
new books will be added:

- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce,
Ukraine
- Yampol Memorial Book

My sincere thanks go out to Joel and his team for this incredible
achievement in this project thus far and look forward to seeing their next
masterpieces.

So popular is this project that we receive requests for books that have yet
to be translated which is, you'll agree, "slightly" problematic. <g> So, if
the community book you are interested in seeing printed has yet to be fully
translated, we welcome your involvement in helping to see this goal reached
and if you are interested, please feel free to contact me. We presently have
over 70 books fully translated but we also have a further 600+ book projects
in various stages of progress, so that we do have our work set out for us.

I would also like to note in this report, the great contribution of Osnat
Hazan and her team in preparing data for our Yizkor Book Main Index
database. The idea behind this database is the establishment of a searchable
database of all the people appearing in the various Yizkor Books. As you can
imagine, preparing such a database requires a great deal of dedication and
patience to go through the translations and index the proper names within
them. I understand the database will presently hold a total of 85,000
records which is a very commendable achievement and, of course, the work to
add more and more names goes on.

In general, I would like personally shake hands and thank all those many
people involved in the Yizkor Book Project whose contributions are so
important. Since I don't think I'll be able to visit you to shake all your
hands, I have continued to update the long credit list of over 400
volunteers who make the YB Project what is. This list is viewable at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/

Puzzle of Zeichner Street Solved #lodz #poland

Am 01.05.2013 16:02, schrieb Miriam:
In JewishGen's Lodz Ghetto database, relatives of my grandmother's and one
other unrelated family are listed as having their original address at
Zeichnen 10, Lodz. I cannot find this street, or any name similar to it, in
the Lodz Ghetto Streets database, or in any other source of Lodz street
names, old or new, and I tried plenty. I even tried translating the word
"zeichnen" (German for to "draw" or "sign"), into Polish ("rysowania" or
"podpisania") to see if there was any street with a similar name, but there
wasn't.

Does anyone have any idea what and/or where this street was?

Dear Miriam,

after some more research and help >from Peter Lande >from the US Holocaust
Memorial Museum (USHMM) the puzzle about this street is solved:
The house list for Muehlgasse 90 clearly shows that the LICHTENSZTAJN
family's previous residence was in the Zeichner Strasse, a small street
just outside the Lodz Ghetto's boundary, the Polish name was and is
Rysownicza, you were not so far off with your attempts to translate
"Zeichnen" into Polish!

If you go to

http://www.mapofpoland.net/Lodz,map.html

and enlarge the map sufficiently, you can see it between Lagiewnicka and
Franciszkanska. Under the German occupation you can see it as Zeichnerstr
on the official 1940 map through the link

http://bc.wimbp.lodz.pl/dlibra/doccontent?id=1100&from=PIONIER%20DLF

If you enlarge it sufficiently, you will see Zeichnerstr between
Sonnleite and Knuepferstr/Siegfriedstr.

The street register on the back of the official 1940 "Plan von
Litzmannstadt" lists the street with the coordinates H9 (that's how I
found it!)

In fact the distance between the old residence Zeichnerstrasse and the
new Ghetto residence Muehl Strasse 90 is very short (you can see it on
Google Satellite, if you enter the address Mlynarska 90), only once the
Ghetto was closed off, there was no way to reach the Zeichnerstrasse any
more, and since it was not in the Ghetto, it does not show up in the
list of Ghetto streets, and since it is a relatively small street, it is
not listed in the Lodz Streets Database either (it should be added there!).

I think the access to the 1940 official map arranged by the Polish Lodz
County Museum is very helpful!

I am glad it worked out eventually,

with kind regards
Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

In JewishGen's Lodz Ghetto database, relatives of my grandmother's and one
other unrelated family are listed as having their original address at
Zeichnen 10, Lodz. I cannot find this street, or any name similar to it, in
the Lodz Ghetto Streets database, or in any other source of Lodz street
names, old or new, and I tried plenty. I even tried translating the word
"zeichnen" (German for to "draw" or "sign"), into Polish ("rysowania" or
"podpisania") to see if there was any street with a similar name, but there
wasn't.

Does anyone have any idea what and/or where this street was?

Dear Miriam,

after some more research and help >from Peter Lande >from the US Holocaust
Memorial Museum (USHMM) the puzzle about this street is solved:
The house list for Muehlgasse 90 clearly shows that the LICHTENSZTAJN
family's previous residence was in the Zeichner Strasse, a small street
just outside the Lodz Ghetto's boundary, the Polish name was and is
Rysownicza, you were not so far off with your attempts to translate
"Zeichnen" into Polish!

If you go to

http://www.mapofpoland.net/Lodz,map.html

and enlarge the map sufficiently, you can see it between Lagiewnicka and
Franciszkanska. Under the German occupation you can see it as Zeichnerstr
on the official 1940 map through the link

http://bc.wimbp.lodz.pl/dlibra/doccontent?id=1100&from=PIONIER%20DLF

If you enlarge it sufficiently, you will see Zeichnerstr between
Sonnleite and Knuepferstr/Siegfriedstr.

The street register on the back of the official 1940 "Plan von
Litzmannstadt" lists the street with the coordinates H9 (that's how I
found it!)

In fact the distance between the old residence Zeichnerstrasse and the
new Ghetto residence Muehl Strasse 90 is very short (you can see it on
Google Satellite, if you enter the address Mlynarska 90), only once the
Ghetto was closed off, there was no way to reach the Zeichnerstrasse any
more, and since it was not in the Ghetto, it does not show up in the
list of Ghetto streets, and since it is a relatively small street, it is
not listed in the Lodz Streets Database either (it should be added there!).

I think the access to the 1940 official map arranged by the Polish Lodz
County Museum is very helpful!

I am glad it worked out eventually,

with kind regards
Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

Kronach Jewish Community 19th-20th century #germany

Laura Wetzler
 

Thanks to the members of this list, www.alemannia-judaica.de, and Aktionskries
www.synagoge-kronach.de, I will be performing a concert of Jewish music,
Sunday June 16 at 5pm in the historical Kronach Synagogue.

This is the very same synagogue where my great grandfather Moses WETZLER
(b. Welbhausen 1848-1923) served >from 1883-1921 as Cantor, high school
teacher, shochet, moel, and spiritual leader ( there was no local Rabbi).
He and his wife Jeannette (b. Altenkundstadt 1850-1927) raised 12 children
in Kronach.

The concert will be in honor of the former Jewish community,
and in thanks to the people who refuse to allow it to be forgotten.
Unfortunately, I do not speak German. This will be my first trip to
Germany. My father Rudi WETZLER (b. Frankfurt 1911-1989) escaped to
the US in 1934.

*** I would very happy to meet other interested Gersig researchers while
*** in Germany and learn more about the 17-19th century history of small,
*** rural Jewish communities in the Franconia region.

I will be researching in Germany June 11-26: Frankfurt (June 11-13),
Welbhausen (June 14), Kronach (June 15-17) and Altenkundstadt (June 18.
Possibly we will visit Binswangen (Moses' first position as Cantor),
Schwabach (teacher's seminary?), Wurzburg, Bamberg, and Leipzig.

Please contact me off list if interested to meet for discussion & tea?

Honoring JewishGen's Volunteers #poland #warsaw

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

Dear Friends,

On June 2, we will be honoring Karen Franklin, Gary Mokotoff, and
Lance Ackerfeld, for their leadership and dedication to JewishGen.

After working with each of these individuals for years, it gives
me great pleasure to see that they will get just a small measure
of the recognition they deserve.

Please join me in honoring them and participate in JewishGen's
Spring Brunch, which be held in New York on June 2. We will
also publish a tribute journal, and I invite you to place an ad.

You can register for the brunch and/or place an ad by calling
646-437-4326, or by visiting http://www.JewishGen.org/Event

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2013 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Simply amazing! These are the words that come to mind in regards the Yizkor
Book in Print Project coordinated by Joel Alpert which is presently
celebrating its second year of existence. There are now, no less than 14
books available to be purchased and in the very near future, a further two
new books will be added:

- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce,
Ukraine
- Yampol Memorial Book

My sincere thanks go out to Joel and his team for this incredible
achievement in this project thus far and look forward to seeing their next
masterpieces.

So popular is this project that we receive requests for books that have yet
to be translated which is, you'll agree, "slightly" problematic. <g> So, if
the community book you are interested in seeing printed has yet to be fully
translated, we welcome your involvement in helping to see this goal reached
and if you are interested, please feel free to contact me. We presently have
over 70 books fully translated but we also have a further 600+ book projects
in various stages of progress, so that we do have our work set out for us.

I would also like to note in this report, the great contribution of Osnat
Hazan and her team in preparing data for our Yizkor Book Main Index
database. The idea behind this database is the establishment of a searchable
database of all the people appearing in the various Yizkor Books. As you can
imagine, preparing such a database requires a great deal of dedication and
patience to go through the translations and index the proper names within
them. I understand the database will presently hold a total of 85,000
records which is a very commendable achievement and, of course, the work to
add more and more names goes on.

In general, I would like personally shake hands and thank all those many
people involved in the Yizkor Book Project whose contributions are so
important. Since I don't think I'll be able to visit you to shake all your
hands, I have continued to update the long credit list of over 400
volunteers who make the YB Project what is. This list is viewable at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/
