Patronka #hungary

Yohanan
 

I would like to thank the researchers that have sent me

private replies about PATRONKA.

I have added up some of the information:

Patronka, is a suburb of Bratislava, where used to be

an abandoned ammunition factory.

In 1938 the Jewish organizations rented the premises of the Patronka

Factory, that was no longer in operation, and used it as a shelter for Jews
refugees, mainly >from Burgenland, Austria.

The factory was used in 1939 – 1940 by the fascist Slovak government,

as a camp for the temporary detention of Jews,

who were sailing down the Danube to the Black Sea

on their way to Israel (then Palestine), during the “Illegal Alia”.

The passengers on these boats were refugees >from neighboring countries

as well as residents of Czechoslovakia.

Only some of them succeeded in reaching their goal.

My father, Josef LOEFFLER, made it on the boat “Jeppo II”

from Bratislava to Nathania, during December 1938.


from the fall of 1941, Patronka became a place that the Slovak Jews
mortally feared, since it was used as an assembly center prior to their

deportation to the east. >from Patronka, the victims were loaded into

railway cars and were sent to concentration camps,

mainly to Auschwitz and Majdanek.

My Ggranfather, Yohan LOEFFLER, was sent >from Bratislava to Patronka and
later to an unknown death camp.



The following links give more detailed information about the deportation of
the Slovak Jews:

EINZIG/EINZIGER families from Szbolcs/Zemplen and Nowy Sacz -- same family? #hungary

Hillary Einziger
 

(I'm cross-posting this to the Galicia and the Hungary lists, since it
concerns both regions.)

I'm researching the Einziger family. The earliest we've been able to
trace it back is to a Nathan Jakob EINZIGER in Nowy Sacz, Poland. We
don't have exact birth dates for many of his children, but it seems
that the oldest was born in the 1850s or so, and the youngest in 1873.
We think this is the Natan EINZIGER, born 1825, mentioned in the 1866
tax list in the Nowy Sacz yizkor book. We also know that he had a
brother or cousin named Markus (Mann) EINZIGER, born in Stary Sacz
around 1843.

There are also a few other EINZIGERs mentioned in Nowy Sacz records,
and we're not sure how they're related to Nathan and Markus. In
particular, there is a Minke EINZIGER, daughter of Wolf EINZIGER and
Blume EINHORN, who married Hersch BRUNNER, son of Abraham BRUNNER and
Ruchel KLAPHOLTZ. Minke's birth date is 1833. They only registered
their marriage in 1895, but then had several children before that.
Birth records for their children in Nowy Sacz are Matel (1867), Chaje
(1871), Marjem (1875), and Chaim (1878).

In the Hungarian database, I found a record for the 1869 Hungarian
census of a BRUNNER family in M-Laborcz: Elische BRUNNER, b. 1810;
Chaje BRUNNER nee LOWY, b. 1812; Hersch BRUNNER, b. 1833; Mina BRUNNER
nee EINZIG, b. 1835; Nathan Aron BRUNNER, b. 1860; Leibish Wolf
BRUNNER, b. 1862; and Rachel BRUNNER, b. 1865.

I think it's possible that the Hersch BRUNNER and Minke EINZIGER in
Nowy Sacz in 1867 are the same couple as the Hersch BRUNNER and Mina
EINZIG in M-Laborcz on the 1869 census. Is it possible that some of
the records on that census were taken a few years before 1869? We
have found several records of a Nathan Aron BRUNNER in Ujhely,
Zemplen, Hungary, with a comment that he was born in Nowy Sacz. We
also found a Page of Testimony in the Yad Vashem archives for the wife
of this Nathan Aron BRUNNER, Mina WEINDLING >from Krakow, which was
submitted by her niece, the daughter of one of the known children of
the Nowy Sacz BRUNNER family. (Another Einziger descendant in Israel,
Shlomit Toaf, called the woman who submitted it to see if she knew
anything else about the family, but she didn't.) There are also some
records of a Leib Wolf BRUNNER, who seems about the same age as the
Leibish Wolf BRUNNER on the Hungarian census, having children in Nowy
Sacz.

So my guess would be that these two families are, in fact, the same
people. This would mean that the EINZIGERs of Nowy Sacz and the
EINZIGs of Zemplen are probably the same family. I searched the
Polish and Hungarian databases for other EINZIGs and EINZIGERs, and
found several in that same area, as well as a group of EINZIGs around
Budapest and a group of names that could be EINZIGER around Lublin,
but we can't find a way to connect all of them to each other. Anybody
know anything more about either of these families, or have any ideas
on how to proceed >from here?

(Family lore is that the family name used to be LAUER, but I haven't
found anything to support that. I've found a few EINZIGs marrying
people with last names similar to LAUER, but that's it.)

Thank you,
Hillary Einziger

As more and more people have the FGS tested, we will learn even more

Re: Janine Sochaczewska, Bagneux Cemetery #france

I have just sent to Avraham Yehoshua Kahana 3 pictures taken by my
daughter who lives in Montrouge, as does the Goldman family. The grave
is a collective grave for Jewish foreign women who died during their
combat again the Nazi during the Occupation. The names on the tombstone
apparently have no family connection.
The back of the tombstone reads "Mutuelle de L'Union des anciens
combattants juifs 1939-1945". There is also a huge memorial in Bagneux
for the foreign Jews who volunteered to join the French Forces at the
beginning of WWII and perished.

It remains to determine : 1. is Janine's tomb an actual burial place or
just a memorial (the pebbles shown on the picture seem to show it is a
burial place) 2. is a file available at the cemetery's office, not open
at time of visit 3. if so, is it accessible to third parties or only to
the person/organisation in charge of the grave's maintenance.

I will report.

Greetings, friends.

I may have finally found my great grandmother. According to all US Census as well
as speaking with those who knew her, she used the name Pauline. According the a
ship's manifest which matches dates found, a woman named "Mascha" exists.

Is there anyway that these two names might match in the Odessa area in the mid 19th
Century, or perhaps, did she just assume a new first name when coming to America?

Thanks, in advance, for any help and or guidance
