Re: EBENSTEIN Searching for Missing Marriage in Vienna #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Evelyn Filippi of NY asked: "How do Jewish people get married if it is not in a
Shul in Vienna, without it being recorded?

My grandfather Moses Sternklar EBENSTEIN remarried in Vienna to a woman
named Ana sometime after 1936. They both perished in Treblinka where they were
listed as married. I would like to know her name and any info I could find out
about her and I never could find any thing. Thanks to Wolf Eckstein .... I have
all the info of everybody else in my family including marriage and death
information and the marriage of my Grandfather to my Grandmother and my
parents' marriage."

The answer to the first part is: Yes, of course people can get married without
the involvement of the synagogue and the marriage will be registered in the
civil register. As this tragic couple were deported in 1942, I presume they
married at the Standesamt [Registrar's office] between 1 Aug 1938 and date of
deportation. Before 1. August 1938 they could still have registered their
marriage at the IKG Vienna and >from what I know of this family, I am sure they
would have had a religious ceremony. As Evelyn did not find an entry at the
IKG, the marriage most probably took place after 1 Aug 1938. The problem now is
when and where did they have their civil ceremony?

Daniela Torsh >from Sydney has answered quite correctly that a query sent to the
Meldearchiv at the Wiener Stadt und Landesarchiv should yield some information.
However this query has to be phrased carefully as the Meldearchiv will have to
do a backward search starting at the last address quoted at deportation {Wien
2, Schmelzgasse 6 Laden} till they find the arrival of Anna on the scene,
living together with Moses. This will give a clue as to when they married.

Alternatively, if Evelyn has the family address at the time of death of her
grandmother, she can ask for a forwards search for Moses >from this date till
Anna appears as his new wife. Based on the address, she can find out which was
the nearest Standesamt at which they presumably married. At this point, I
become hazy as I have never had to do this. We know Anna's dob is 21/05/1890
[yad vashem] and on Evelyn's POT for Moses I note the name PACHMAN, with a
query, as a possible maiden name for Anna.

The address given at deportation looks as if it is the family shop. I am not
too clear about this as the word "Laden" appears. I researched Moses's first
wife [Evelyn's grandmother] and found this on JOWBR: Address: 1200,
Klosterneuburgerstr. 62, Comments: Grabst., Einf., Deckpl. 9.6.1972

Please note the words Grabst. [tombstone] and Deckpl. and a date of
construction - equivalent to Stephanie Weiner's *Platte* yesterday. But we have
the greatest boon of JOWBR - now we have another address >from which we can
progress our research in the archives.

Here is a photograph of the grave before and after - wonderful clearance work
of Traude Triebel in 2006, and you can actually see the *Platte*

http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/667475689/
http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/667475933/

You can see on the tombstone, Evelyn's grandmother is called Beile but on the
database she has her German name Bertha and she died at the AKh - ie
Allgemeines Krankenhaus, Wien 1090:

EBENSTEIN, Bertha 1090, Akh 03-Jun-1936
T4 Group: 21 Row: 11 Grave: 42

With all this data, Evelyn should be successful in getting closer to the facts
of her grandfather Moses EBENSTEIN's second marriage. I would present both
addresses, with dates 1936 and 1942, to the Meldearchiv, to help them in their
search. Good luck, Evelyn.

Celia Male, London UK.


Footnote: both these EBENSTEIN photographs are included in my FLICKR sets.
Moses is recorded in the recently-expanded Holocaust Memorial - public and
private set, I will be writing about shortly - see as a preview before my
posting:

Austrian Newspaper Online (ANNO): Die Neue Frei Presse - 1864 - 1937 #austria-czech

Alex Calzareth
 

Last year Celia Male posted a message >from the ANNO team stating that
the Neue Freie Presse would be put online during the summer of 2008.
This newspaper is now available for the years 1864 to 1937 on the
AustriaN Newspaper Online web site at
http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?aid=nfp.

I have already been able to find more than a dozen obituaries for
members of my family. To find which newspaper edition to search in
first get the date of death and/or burial >from the Vienna Jewish
Community web site at http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en.
The obituaries usually appear within one to two days of the date of
death. I did however find one obituary about a week after the death as
the individual had died in Karlsbad and was buried in the
Zentralfriedhof in Vienna.

As you may know, the ANNO web site also has the Prager Tagblatt
available, but only for the years 1908 - 1937, with some gaps. If
you're looking for an obituary for someone who lived in Bohemia or
Moravia and died before 1908 it may be worth checking the Neue Freie
Presse. My 3rd great-grandfather, Iganz Hahn, was a grain trader who
lived in Budweis for most of his life. He died on 10 March 1894 and
his obituary was placed in the Neue Freie Presse on 11 March 1894. I
also found an obituary for his brother-in-law, David C. Fuerth, who
died on 23 November 1906 in Schuettenhofen (Susice).

ANNO has a good layout. Once you click on a particular date you're
able to see an overview of all the pages in the paper that day. From
there you can easily pick out the pages with obituaries and see if the
name you're looking for is there.

Neue Freie Presse is now online - Editor and owner Moriz BENEDIKT #germany

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

When Stephanie Weiner of San Diego asked GerSIG members yesterday for a private
translation of the obituary notice of Josef H. DOMBERGER >from Drohobycz,
Galicia >from the Neue Frei Presse she was, to my great amusement, totally
unaware of the momentous event she was revealing. She wrote to GerSIG as she
wanted to give the Austria-Czech members a rest, but ironically this was the
news we all wanted to hear and had been waiting impatiently for over the years.

I knew that the Neue Freie Presse [NFP] was due to be digitised but had not
checked for a while; now we know it is there for all to read and peruse. It is
wonderful news for genealogists, as this Viennese newspaper "Neue Freie Presse"
1864-1939, with its hundreds of Partezettel {Obituary notices} is now on-line
at at ANNO: Austrian Newspapers Online - http://anno.onb.ac.at/

see: http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?aid=nfp

If you know the date of death of the person you are looking for, please look at
the newspaper edition nearest that date, for the Partezettel - see for example
17 June p.17 1916 for a bumper number of Partezettel. Stephanie's revealed
many family members she was not aware of.

The editor, and eventually the owner, of the paper was the famous and
controversial Moriz BENEDIKT, a Jew, who was born on 27 May 1848 in
Krasice/Kwassitz, Moravia and died in Vienna on 18.3.1920 - see

http://aeiou.iicm.tugraz.at/aeiou.encyclop.b/b287076.htm

Look at the NFP edition of 19 March 1920 to see the Partezettel on the front
page with a long editorial.

Karl KRAUS, the satirist editor of Die Fackel had a running battle with Moriz
BENEDIKT see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Kraus

Read this about the CANETTI family and Moriz's son Dr Ernst BENEDIKT:

When you google the legendary Moriz {or Moritz} BENEDIKT, the editor of the
NFP, he is very hard to find - but you find a medical doppelganger. Some
newspaper editors' fame, like their products, are obviously ephemeral in the
eyes of 21st century English-language search engines.

Schottlaender'sches Stift, Breslau (Wroclaw) [An institution] #germany

Eckart Grossmann <ec.grossmann@...>
 

Dear friends,
I am fruitless looking for the "Schottlaender'sche Stift", Kirschallee 35 I,
Breslau (now: Wisniowa, al., Wroclaw, Poland). It was a Jewish institution
probably for invalid men. My great-uncle Salo Grossmann was an "Insasse"
(inmate) about 1916 for a long time. Many thanks for a tip.
