In 2010, my wife, Toba, and I along with our guide, Julius Muller from
Prague, visited several towns in the Klatovy District, Bohemia,
Czech. The following document: https://tinyurl.com/bohemiatrip2010th
contains a guidebook prepared by Julius, photos >from the cemeteries in the
district and more. Please feel free to share. My families in this district were Blochs
and Ecksteins. My father's mother came >from these families.

I am sharing now because of work I just engaged in with folks in some of these towns.
I have just made modifications to several Geni projects in this district. I welcome comments
on any of this, especially the gravestones. A number of them are labeled in lower left corner,
thanks to Howard Lesser.

translation query from a colleague posted by helen epstein #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

I am a retired journalist (WSJ/NYT/II mag) researching a possible
book on the persons responsible for causing Hungary to defy the Nazis
in early July 1944 by ceasing deportations to Auschwitz of the
Jewish community of Budapest. One of the links is the role played by
Jaromir Kopecky, the Czec official in Switzerland representing his
government in exile. I have copies of about 50 telegrams/notes to and
from him during May/June, 1944 that came >from the archives of Vad
Yashem and the goverrnments of Germany and Czechoslovaki. Most are in
the Czech languages/some in German.

Initially, i just need to have a translator share with me the date and
subject of the communications for me to determine if one or more would
be significant.
If so, I would then ask for a translation.

Ideally, it would be best to meet with the translator to quickly
review each document for its relevance. I could also send scans of the
docs and then talk by phone. As a retired ex journalist, I am on a
limited budget and do not have a sponsor for this research. But i
could pay $100 or so for the first phase of quick review and then $25
per doc (usually one page or 1 1/2 ) for a full translation of those
that seem helpful. Happy to discuss further with anyone who wants to
email me at fredbleak270@gmail.com

Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths of Jewish Religion Communities from the years 1784–1949 #austria-czech

Tony Hausner
 

As many of you know, Badatelna has records of the Jewish communities in the
Czech lands >from 1784-1949. Perhaps even additional years. I believe
Lenka Matusikova who was with the archives at the time had
much to do with putting this toegether. Daniela Torsh was kind enough
to point me to the following website to learn what this means I think
Randy Schoenberg also had a lot to do with arranging Lenka's work on this.

See http://www.nacr.cz/en/fondy-a-pomucky/digitalni-badatelna/matriky/


I share this as I did not know where to look and I suspect others will not
either.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2018 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

We have added in three new books:

Looking for Oskar HAHN death date #austria-czech

Gary Mokotoff
 

Looking for a friend's maternal grand-father Oskar HAHN death date and where
he is buried in Prague, Czechoslovakia. He was born in Pilsen (now Plsen)
on March 3,1876, son of Alois & Sofie HAHN, nee Liebstein. He married Emma
Fleishmann on March 23,1910 in Karlsbad (now Karlovy Vary).

He is supposed to have died either end of January or early February 1939 in
Prague, last residency, just before his children, my friend's parents,
escaped to Holland where they arrived on February 17.
