The following invitation >from the Mayor of Gdansk, Pawel Adamowicz, to
events in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Gdansk was provided by the Deputy
Directory of the Mayor's Office, Maciej Buczkowski. These events could be a
good opportunity to meet fellow Jewish Danzigers. Please share online and
offline. Mr. Buczkowski has specifically asked for help spreading the word,
because there is not much time remaining before the Mayor's visit to Israel.
If you would like the invitation as a Word document in English or Polish,
please contact me. Perhaps, someone could translate into Hebrew and share
in appropriate places (if you are going to do this, please state here to
prevent duplication of effort).

I am inquiring with Mr. Buczkowski about genealogical opportunities for
those who attend the event in Gdansk. If you think you might attend, please
tell me, in case having an estimate of numbers could help with these
inquiries or subsequent plans.

Third Gdansk Reunion, Gdansk, 21-23 May 2010

Full Invitation:

Dear Gdanskers by descent and out of fondness,
Lovers of the City of Lech Walesa and the Cradle of Solidarity,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have the honour and the pleasure to invite you to visit Gdansk in 2010 for
the Third Gdansk Reunion scheduled for 21 - 23 May next year.

Gdansk Reunion, an event organised every four years, has found its place in
the calendar of the most important European projects. The programme of the
Reunion is packed with events presenting rich cultural achievements of the
city and as such the Reunion is perceived as a platform for bringing back
the memory of the multicultural history of Gdansk and for establishing
contacts between the former citizens of Gdansk and their families.

I would like to encourage all those who feel emotional bonds with Gdansk or
were born in the city to take part in this unique Reunion. It is our
intention that the meeting of the Gdansk community should result in building
up new interpersonal bonds and strengthening of the identity of the place.

I would like to extend the invitation to visit Gdansk personally and
therefore I am visiting Israel in December this year. The primary aim of my
visit to Israel is to establish contacts with the former citizens of Gdansk
and their families. For that reason we have faced the challenge of
organising meetings with you in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

The meeting in Tel Aviv will take place at the Polish Institute and is
scheduled for 3rd December 2009 at 18:00 hours. The Polish Institute is
situated in Beit Asia, 4 Weizman St., 64-239 Tel Aviv (Phones: +972 3 696 20
53, +972 3 696 20 59, fax: +972 3 696 20 64, location map at
www.polishinstitute.org.il).

The meeting in Jerusalem will be organised on 6th December 2009 at 18:00
hours by courtesy of the Honorary Consul of Poland, Mr. Zeev Baran and will
take place at the Consulate Residence in Jerusalem at 27 Jabotinsky St.,
92-141 Jerusalem (Phone: +972-2 566-58-45, fax: +972-2 566-57-90).

The above mentioned meetings will also create a great opportunity to present
the accomplishments of contemporary Gdansk - the city of Freedom and
Solidarity, the host of the European Football Championship - EURO 2012, the
strongest candidate for the European Capital of Culture 2016, and the World
Capital of Amber. We would like to show you the city that cherishes the
memory of its multicultural and difficult past, the city where
"Solidarnosc" - the major European social movement was born leading to the
fall of communism and the birth of new Europe, and last but not least the
city of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate - Lech Walesa.

In the last two years the city of Gdansk was the venue for two very
important events promoting the memory of the Jewish community of Gdansk. In
May 2007 Gdansk hosted the Israeli Days organised to commemorate the 60
years of existence of Israel. This year we were celebrating the 70th
anniversary of Kindertransports. Gdansk founded a monument to commemorate
the Jewish children who survived the war thanks to the rail transports that
took them >from war-stricken European cities to Great Britain. Over ten
thousand children owe their lives to Kindertransports. The monument was
designed and created by a Jewish artist, Frank Meisler.

We would not be able to organise the meetings in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem were
it not for the strong support we received >from the following people:

Rabbi Michael Schudrich - Chief Rabbi of Poland,
Ms. Agnieszka Magdziak-Miszewska - Polish Ambassador in Israel,
Mr. Zeev Baran - Honorary Council of Poland in Jerusalem,
Ms. Elzbieta Frister - Director of the Polish Institute in Tel Aviv,
Mr. Michal Samet - President of the Jewish Community of Gdansk,
Ms. Ilona Cousin - President of the Polish-Jewish Association,
founders of the internet portal: www.jewishgen.org, and
Professor Grzegorz Berendt, historian and expert on the fate of the Jewish
community of Gdansk

Should you have any questions we will be happy to assist you. Mr. Maciej
Buczkowski, Deputy Director of the Mayor's Office will be your contact
person and the coordinator of the event (tel. +48 58 323 62 84, 323 62 02,
323 62 03, tel./fax +48 58 323 62 83, e-mail: m.buczkowski@gdansk.gda.pl).

Looking forward to meeting you in Israel soon and in hospitable Gdansk in
the near future,
I send you my warmest regards,

Mayor of Gdansk

MELNICK, East End of London #general

a1steve's rubbish removals <a1steve@...>
 

Dear All

In the 1901 UK census Marks and Betsy/Bessy MELNICK were
living in Mile End with their children; -
Marks 38 Betsy 30 Fanny (Dora?) 9 Rosie 8
Sarah 5 Iky (Isaac) 3 Annie 2 weeks.
They may have had two more children, Joseph born 1910 and
Jack born 1911.

Betsy may have passed away in 1914 as Bertha.
Later that year, a Marks MELNICK married Sarah TISHMAN/TISSMAN so
this may well have been a second marriage for both of them or
at least for Marks.
They had a daughter called Eva born Bethnal Green, 1916.
I've not found a marriage for Eva, only for an Eva Dora who was
born in 1910/12 and her parents were Jacob MELNICK and Matilda
POSENER/POSNER.
Perhaps Jacob was a relation of Marks who passed away in 1930 aged 64.

Please contact me on a1steve@bigpond.com with any connection.

Shlomo,

If your family roots are >from Bilicz, you should rather search
for the Stary Sambor (Old Sambor or Ir Yashan) map, not Sambor's,
as Bolich was located within Stary Sambor district.

On the other hand, Bilicz was a small village of less than 1800

born in 1910/12 and her parents were Jacob MELNICK and Matilda
POSENER/POSNER.
Perhaps Jacob was a relation of Marks who passed away in 1930 aged 64.

Dear All

In the 1901 census Marks and Betsy/Bessy MELNICK were
living in Mile End with their children; -
Marks 38 Betsy 30 Fanny (Dora?) 9 Rosie 8
Sarah 5 Iky (Isaac) 3 Annie 2 weeks.
They may have had two more children, Joseph born 1910 and
Jack born 1911.

Betsy may have passed away in 1914 as Bertha.
Later that year, a Marks MELNICK married Sarah TISHMAN/TISSMAN so
this may well have been a second marriage for both of them or
at least for Marks.
They had a daughter called Eva born Bethnal Green, 1916.
I've not found a marriage for Eva, only for an Eva Dora who was
born in 1910/12 and her parents were Jacob MELNICK and Matilda
POSENER/POSNER.
Perhaps Jacob was a relation of Marks who passed away in 1930 aged 64.
