Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #unitedkingdom

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the
Isle of Man. This is primarily during World War II but also applies to World
War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.
In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish,
escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took over
Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family members escaped to England.
However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards as
"enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle of
Man.

To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@gmail.com

Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Hi Nancy,
I think this is a great idea!  Lord knows, I spend enough on Amazon.  When I went to the link, I got my account, but putting in JewishGen yielded a couple of state societies but not JewishGen itself.  Perhaps others will have this problem and may also benefit from more direction!

Dear df,

Have you contacted Jewish History Association of South Wales, https://jhasw2018.wixsite.com/news?  Even if they do not have the materials you need they can probably point you in the right direction.

Best,

Stolperstein #poland

Gerald and Margaret
 

Has anyone had experience of installing Stolpersteine in Poland?

My paternal grandparents, Adolf and Frieda (nee Masur) STEIN
lived in a small town, Kanth, now Katy Wroclawski, along the
railway line , 12 miles SW of Breslau, now called Wroclaw.
They were murdered in April 1942.

I would like to hear >from anyone who has applied in Poland
for permission to instal a Stolperstein - which level of
local council one should approach.

There were 4 Jewish families in this small town. I was
in contact with the daughter of Dr And Mrs Heidenfeld.
There were two others, the Jungmanns and a family who owned
a shoe shop. I would like to ask if any relatives would like
to commemorate their families.

Re: Translation of word from unknown language #yizkorbooks #bessarabia

Could it possibly be the Spanish “ferrocarril”? That means railway. Altho why they would use a Spanish word, I don’t know.

short introduction about the methodology and the sources I used. It is
certainly *not* a complete list and if I missed a surname you know
