Terry SAX; Louisville, KY --> California; 1937 to present #general

Tim Baker <tbaker@...>
 

Searching for Terry SAX, born 1937 in Louisville, Kentucky, to
David and Margaret (GAIL) SAX. The family later moved to
California where the parents passed away in Los Angeles,
Margaret in 1956 and David possibly in 1973. I have a phone
number >from that period for Terry SAX in San Diego, but nothing
since then. Unsure if she married -- she could have a different
last name now. She would be the first cousin of the late (?) Leon
NUDELMAN and Morris NUDELMAN of Los Angeles.

At the present time, the Historical Archive is eleven (11) months behind on
research requests. Please wait four more months before asking for a status
report. Bear in mind that if everyone requested a status report, and Galina
responded, the archive would get about 20 months behind instead of eleven.
She cannot respond to your queries and also do research at the same time.
All of us would like to receive records as soon as possible. However,
patience is needed as otherwise, the wait will become even longer.

Searching Mozes Blumenberg from Tyczyn #poland

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

Mozes Blumenberg was born in Tyczyn, Poland in February of 1920. By
the late 30s, he had gotten to Israel, where he remained until at
least 1945. We do not know if he stayed there or left >from Russia,
or where he might have eventually settled. He is my grandfather's
nephew, and we are trying to find him. Despite the fact that he was
located, he never answered my grandfather's letter nor did he ever
send him a letter. He had at least two siblings, Rachela, born 1923,
and Zofia born 1925. There may have been other siblings, as well.
His parents were Hene (Eisen) Blumenberg and Jonas Blumenberg, both
born in 1890. He had an Uncle Mozes who was one of the over nine
hundred passengers who were taken >from Italy to Oswego NY in 1944.
He had a half aunt Ruchel in Paris and a half-uncle who lived in
Nagyvarad, Hungary (Oradea, Romania) whose name is unknown. His
grandparents were Schewa and Chaim Iram.

If anyone has any information on this man or family, please email
me privately.

Kupishok: For Eternal Memory - DVD Available #rabbinic

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

This is a one-time posting regarding the availability of a new DVD
entitled "Kupishok: For Eternal Memory" which is available through
the Brandeis University National Center for Jewish Film:

http://www.brandeis.edu/jewishfilm/Catalogue/films/Kupishok.html

The film which runs 60 minutes and costs $18 plus shipping and
handling, recreates the July 13, 2005 dedication of the Kupiskis Wall
of Memory Holocaust Memorial in Kupiskis, Lithuania. The Wall,
located in what was the former main synagogue of Kupiskis and now
public library, is the first memorial in Lithuania to list those
killed and their ages.

The participants in the film, who ranged >from age 8 to 87 and who came
from America, Australia, the United Kingdom, Israel, Lithuania, and
South Africa, shared a special and binding heritage in this small
shtetl whose Jewish population was destroyed in the summer of 1941.

The destruction of the community was truly made personal as those who
participated in the ceremonies, both Jewish and Lithuanian, saw the
vast array of over 824 names before them, just regular people, men,
women and children, of all ages, an entire group of people, gone
forever. One had only to go outside the former synagogue where the
Wall was located and look in the central square to see the stores and
homes where this community once was based, or go to Synagogue Street
and see where many lived, to know what a loss had occurred.

Hearing huge numbers in the millions of those killed in the Holocaust
numbs one as one participant stated, but actually seeing those numbers
made real with names and ages is horrifying, especially when they are
your family, friends and neighbors.

For those of you who have connections to Kupiskis and wish to learn
more about the trip there and the shtetl, please go to the Kupiskis
ShtetLink Site:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kupiskis/memmain.htm

I hope you will take advantage of the availability of this film which
is dedicated to Norman Meyer, the trip's leader, who passed away
shortly after the completion of the trip.

Dear Fellow Genners

Like many other people, I have belonged to this digest for a number of
years and belong to a number of different groups and therefore receive
a great deal of genealogical e-mail.

I can read through many more posting much quicker when they are
paragraphed and the points that participants are trying to make then
stand out more easily.

Also, please leave a space between the last sentence of the posting and
the persons name, so that also stands out much clearer.
