Re: "Kristallnacht" #germany

Renate Rosenau <RenateRosenau@...>
 

In connection with this discussion about "Kristallnacht" I would like to
draw your attention to the fact that the term "Kristallnacht" was a Nazi
term meant to expose the Jews to ridicule. Avoiding further use of Nazi
terms the alternatives are:
use of quotation marks "Kristallnacht", or Novemberprogrom or
Reichspogromnacht.

records for Snowicz, Poland -- 1920s (was: More recent Birth and Marriage records) #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Belinda Dishon asked about interwar records for Snowicz -- then in
Poland, now in Ukraine -- and Phyllis Kramer suggested that the town
may now be Snovichi, Ukraine, at 4944/2456.

I agree that Snovichi is probably the place. Gesher Galicia's Galician
Town Locator, at https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/,
lists Snowicz, which was in the Zloczow Jewish district, and Snovichi
is about five miles >from Zolochev (once Zloczow).

Which brings me to a question I've always wondered about:

Once Galicia became Poland after World War I, where were the Jewish
records of small villages filed? Were vital events still recorded in
designated larger towns or were they recorded in each village's civil
records office?

**If** Snowicz's Jewish records were still kept in Zloczow between the
World Wars, see Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots database
(http://www.rtrfoundation.org/search.php) for Zolochev records.
According to RTR, Zolochev birth and marriage records for the 1920s
are here:

Trestina (Trzcianne) cemetery restoration #poland

David Brostoff
 

To all those interested in Trestina (Pol. Trzcianne),

The Jewish cemetery in Trzcianne (Trestina), northwest of Bialystok, is
in a state of deep decay, not having been maintained since the Nazis
destroyed most of the town in 1941.

Many of us with Trestina roots have ancestors and relatives who are
buried there.

A project to restore the cemetery has been started by Trestina
descendants, in partnership with the Foundation for the Preservation of
Jewish Heritage in Poland (FODZ) <https://fodz.pl/?d=1&l=en>, the
Polish government entity that owns the cemetery and much of the communal
Jewish property in Poland.

The project has also received the support of the chief rabbi of Poland,
Michael Schudrich.

To learn more, please contact me directly, or visit the project's web
page at <https://jewishheritagepoland.org/trzcianne.html>.

Thank you,

Life in the Havana, Cuba, Jewish community from 1928 to 1942 to be described in Nov. 19, 2017, talk for Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois #general

Martin Fischer
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017

Meeting time: 12:30-3:30 p.m.; presentation time: 2 p.m.

Place: Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

2 p.m. program: "My Mother's Life in Cuba: In Her Own Words"

Speaker: Martin Fischer

"My Mother's Life in Cuba: In Her Own Words" is the topic of a talk planned by
genealogist Martin Fischer for the Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, meeting of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Illinois. Fischer's presentation, based on his mother's
25-page memoir about life in the Havana Jewish community >from 1928 to 1942, will
begin at 2 p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

The JGSI genealogy research library and help desk will open at 12:30 p.m. For
more information, see https://jgsi.org/event-2635116 or phone 312-666-0100.

Fischer will present excerpts >from the memoir written by his mother, Chana Anita
Levik Fischer (1921-2007), who, in the wake of the turmoil of the Russian
Revolution, was conceived in Russia, born in Poland, grew up and was educated in
Cuba; and got married, raised a family and had a career in the United States.

After briefly summarizing Chana's earliest years, Fischer will focus on the
period >from 1928 to 1942, when she and her parents, Abraham and Dweire Levik,
struggled to adjust and make a living in Havana, Cuba. Despite a promising
business venture begun by Abraham shortly after their arrival in Havana, the
family was soon to become victims of the worldwide Great Depression and
eventually came to depend on friends for support and the local Jewish community
for employment.

Although language differences, status as a foreigner and a life in and out of
poverty created obstacles, Chana Levik managed to gain a valuable education in
Cuba. She attended a free public technical high school, which prepared her well
for a career later in life as a laboratory technician at Jewish Hospital in St.
Louis, Missouri.

Martin Fischer, vice president of publicity for the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Illinois, is also a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists,
International Society of Family History Writers and Editors, and St. Louis
Genealogical Society. He has been doing genealogy research since the 1970s and
has an extensive family history website at martinfischer.webs.com .

He recently won a first place award for excellence in writing >from the
International Society of Family History Writers and Editors for "How the
Gogolinsky Family of Warsaw Became the Barney Family of St. Louis," an article
published in Avotaynu: The International Review of Jewish Genealogy, Spring 2016.

Sara Lea Nussbaum Weinreb #poland

Milton Koch
 

I have been able to locate some history about the birth and death,
of Sara Lea Nussbaum Weinreb, which occurred in Israel, in 1986.
She is buried in Holon.
My quest is to locate any living family members.
Sara Lea was born in Baranow, Galicia in 1898. Her mother was
Chuan/Hanan (?)
My maternal grandfather, Gustav Nussbaum, was also born in Baranow, in
1869. His parents were Abraham and Ruchel, however.
I wonder if they are not related by parentage siblings. I do not know of
how many Nussbaum families might have lived in Baranow at that time.
I would like to find any descendants of Sara Lea, in order to get more
family names, dates and history.

Thank you.
