Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Download the JewishGen Passover Companion 2019 #austria-czech

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community.

We are pleased to present the JewishGen Passover Companion 2019, which
contains inspirational vignettes about how Passover was observed in
various communities, along with first-hand accounts about the great
effort and personal risk (Mesirat Nefesh) Jews took to observe
Passover during the Holocaust.

As you gather around the Seder table, and tell the story of the
Exodus, we hope that this companion will have helped inspire you to
connect with previous generations, while considering your role in
preserving the history and legacy of not just your family, but the
entirety of the Jewish people.

To read it online, please click here: http://bit.ly/JewishGen2019FS
To download the file to your computer (and for printing), please click
here: http://bit.ly/JewishGenPassoverDL

Wishing you a Happy Passover and Chag Kosher V'Sameach!

Bohemian, Moravian Town Name #austria-czech

Hank Lobbenberg
 

I have a situation where the town name is obviously not correct. SALOMON
GRU(umlaut)NHUT b. 1860 in Tort Oats, Hungary.
Salomon married ROSA LAUFER b. 1862.
Can anyone give me the correct spelling of this town.
I have not been able to find Salomon's parents. It is possible that they are
in my database but so far I have not found them.

Thank you for any assistance.
