Re: Shoah Foundation DVDs #general

Pamela says "these are treasures to be shared with the world".

There are also several hundred interviews with survivors that were conducted
in the 1970s at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Some are available via
the University website but as far as I know they all seem to be in Hebrew
which isn't much use to non-Hebrew speakers.

I obtained one several years ago and my brother-in-law, who lives in Israel,
and I spent hours trying to translate it into English. He found it difficult
as the interviewee's Hebrew was not too good either.

What a pity there are no English transcripts.

Hi,

Pamela Weisberger writes below about copying the DVD files and then
adding subtitles. I believe this can work, technically-speaking, but it
seems it would be far better to make copies etc. >from the uncompressed
master-archival digital recordings >from which the distributed DVDs
themselves are copied. Is the Shoah Foundation making these available (I
assume with restrictions, etc)?

These interviews are treasures to be shared with the world. It would
be a mitzvah to purchase the DVD, then have it subtitled in English,
and post it online. You could post it on a website, or perhaps a SIG

USHMM and/or Yivo once completed.

Her words are valuable, but without a translation most people will not

Searching Smoliachna Borovka #belarus

lesliegut
 

Amongst entries in the 1888 Revision List, we have found two family groups
who are noted to have lived in a place at the time called Smoliachna
Borovka. We know the family lived in close proximity to one another, so
this place must have been very near Lida. Our local researcher has
determined that another location's name was changed after this Revision List
was prepared, and since we're having difficulty locating Smoliachna Borovka,
we suspect this may also be the case. If anyone has knowledge of the
location of this town/village, please let us know. We will be visiting Lida
in June and would very much like to include it on our itinerary as it was
the last known place of residency for our g-g-grandparents. Many thanks for
your help.

Book on First State Rabbi of Hesse, Germany, after the Shoah to be released #rabbinic

Norbert Weinberg <norofra@...>
 

75 years ago, my father was a prisoner in a castle in
Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. To find out how he got there and what happened
afterwards, look for my upcoming book: Courage of the Spirit.

***Courage of the Spirit tells of one man's victory over the Nazis***

Rabbi Dr. William Weinberg becomes the first State Rabbi of the community of
Holocaust survivors in the German State of Hesse Many books have been
written of the spiritual heroism of the Jewish people as they rebuilt their
lives after the devastation wrought by Hitler's attempt to wipe out every
last Jew, but some books stand out as unique because they are written by
family members who were told those stories of heroism firsthand. Courage of
the Spirit (paperback ISBN 978-0-9846685-6-4; ebook ISBN 978-0-9887048-9-3)
is such a book. It portrays the spiritual struggle of one man during the
first half of the twentieth century -- the author's father, Rabbi Dr. William
Weinberg, who survived under Nazi and Communist tyranny to become the first
State Rabbi of the community of Holocaust survivors in the German State of
Hesse.
Rabbi Weinberg's saga serves as a tour of the ideologies and principles of
the contemporary world, but it also encompasses the movements that shape
Judaism today: Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative, as well as political
Zionism. It is a story that spans thousands of physical miles, by freight
train and on foot, >from the Galician Shtetl to cosmopolitan Vienna and
Berlin, and to Stalingrad and central Asia and back as Rabbi Weinberg kept
one step ahead of the Nazi armies. It is a story that spans the mental and
emotional journey >from the medieval Shtetl, the great empires, and the weak
democracies and totalitarian regimes that followed, and finally, to freedom.

Along the way, we meet significant figures in Rabbi Weinberg's life: Martin
Buber and Mannes Sperber, the founders of Israel's Marxist-Socialist party,
Rabbi Leo Baeck, and Albert Einstein. We are shown a window into life in a
Nazi prison and concentration camp, the day-to-day life of Jews in Nazi
Berlin, and the vagaries of survival under Stalin's totalitarian shelter.
"This book reconstructs these events >from conversations with my father, from
family notes, and >from historical documentation," says the author, Rabbi
Norbert Weinberg.
Courage of the Spirit is the first part of a trilogy. The second part will
follow the account of Irene Gottdenker, the author's mother, who openly
survived the Holocaust in the guise of a Pole of German descent and
witnessed the destruction of the Jews in Lwow and Warsaw. The third part
will examine the rebirth of Jewish life in the refugee camps in Austria and
then in the city of Frankfurt, Germany, and the environs. IndieGo Publishing
is an independent publishing firm that believes in supporting authors as the
world's primary source in promoting freedom of expression through the

David (ben Moshe of Klezk) Rabbi of Novarodok-18-19th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Around the end of the 18th cent. there was a Rabbi of Novorodok, a
certain David ben Moshe of Kletzk. He was a contemporary of Reb Chaim
of Volozhin. He wrote a book (sefer) "Galya Mesechta". I haven't
found any mention of a family name for this David or his father.

According to a yichus (pedigree) note that a greatuncle of mine wrote,
one of my ancestors was a brother of the above David.

The family line to this David, is my maternal grandfather, ABRAMOWITZ
but I am far >from sure that this was David's name (if he had one at
all). David's son-in-law a Rabbi RABINOWITZ published his FIL's
sefer.

Many years ago when I posted this message a member of this forum, an
Ogolnick (or similar name) >from Boston (or Baltimore) wrote to me that
they were descendants of Rabbi David and were very happy to hear from
me and asked for details of my family tree but I was unfortunately not
able to give them details as I have very little on my maternal
grandfather's ancestors.

I would be very happy to hear >from anyone who know of descendants of
the above Moshe of Klezk -other than David-and also >from David's
descendants who may be able to give me more information about David's
siblings.
