Book on the Transport from Duesseldorf to the Lodz Ghetto #lodz #poland

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear all,

After announcing the CD with the biographies of the one Duesseldorf
transport to the Lodz Ghetto on October 26, 1941, I now have the data
for the book.

Genger, Angela and Jakobs, Hildegard (eds.): Duesseldorf / Getto
Litzmannstadt. 1941. Essen: Klartext Verlag, 2010. 434 pages. ISBN
978-3-8375-0236-7. Euro price 29,95.

The large-size book is beautifully printed and contains excellent
reproductions of many original documents (work ID cards, registration
forms, family pictures etc. >from the Lodz State Museum, the USHMM and
many other sources), excerpts of original biographies of many events in
the ghetto, recollections of survivors, letters and postcards sent or
impounded etc.) and articles on the various stages of the ghetto events
and particularly what happened to the Duesseldorf transport and how they
organized their life in the ghetto as a group collective. It is
highlighted that the identification of some of transport members was
only possible through the number of their bread ration card. There is a
list of all the transport members with their fate (but without their
biographies that are on the CD), a list of all the 193 deaths within the
ghetto and a list of the 151 members who were alive in 1944/45.

There is no name index, but I am still willing to answer any questions
relating to this book or the CD with the biographies.

With kind regards, Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

Seeking Hildegard LAZANSKY of Prague #general

Dan <doren@...>
 

I am trying to track down the fate of a family cousin: Hildegard (Hilda)
LAZANSKY, born 1885, in Prague (Praha), to Dr. Leopold LAZANSKY and Hermine
(née POLLAK) Lazansky. Hildegard's brother Walter LAZANSKY-WURM lived in
Prague (Karolinenthal), Czech Republic prior to his being killed during the
Shoah. I have struck out with finding reference to her among the Prager
Tagblatt death notices and the Yad Vashem database.
Any leads would be immensely appreciated.

Thank you kindly,

Ruth's question is interesting. Those with known Jewish origins tend to look

Jewish and then wondering how on earth our families picked up less obvious

of a Jewish sounding family name >from the west of England that research is a
little less straightforward.

Naming patterns throughout Europe tend to occur with frequency, and where
one finds that a large number of families have the same family name that can
be as much a cultural issue as it may be a familial or ethnic one. Looking
at the name in that way, the Isaacs of the West Country might be Jewish but
it rather more likely that they take their last name >from their West Country
locale. The Brythonic (in this context Cornish) word for corn place/field is
'Izzick' or 'Usek', which evolved into Isaac. So, for instance, this naming
evolution applies to the ancient Cornish village 'Port Isaac' - which was
originally 'Porthusek' or a port for corn. So my guess is that Ruth Marler's
ancestors were of Celtic origin...but as for the name Marler - that's
another story :-).

The name ISAAC does seem to be concentrated along the south coast
Hampshire, Dorset and a lot in Devon.
---

ISAAC is a very common name in England and Wales, used to a large extent
by Christian non-confomist denominations - along with MOSES, ABRAHAM, etc.
At the 1911 Census of England and Wales, there were over 5,000 people
names ISAAC.

While I am not aware of marriage records for Rakov, I am aware of the

I have a possible lead on a woman listed in the 1930 NY census in Queens as
an inmate at the Dr. Combes Sanitarium for mental and nervous diseases. Has
anyone heard of this sanitarium and where the records might be? I know it
was private and housed about 50 people. It was in existence >from the 1890s
until at least 1935. In 1930, it was on Northern Blvd., Queens. I believe
it was owned at that time by a Dr. Abbott Carson Combes, Jr.
