searching for Warsaw cousins with 37 year old addresses #general

alan radack <alrack@...>
 

I learned >from >from my mother, Sophie (Koenigsberg) Radack that
she was related to the Wodzislawsky family >from Warsaw, Poland. Most
likely the relationship was through her mother’s family - the
Rzepkowicz’s also of Warsaw. Three Wodzislawska daughters. Helena
(Wodzislawska) Goren and Anya (Wodzislawska) Touroff and Marja
(Wodzislawska) Batavia had emigrated to the US.

A fourth daughter had not. She had converted to Roman Catholicism,
married and had 2 children (born between 1900 and 1910) and had survived
WW2.

One of the children became a physician and both had moved to Paris after
1945. Anya (Wodzislawska) Touroff’s daughter Eleanor Glueck had
became an important researcher and academic in the field of crime and
juvenile delinquency and when she passed on, her papers ,personal
and professional, were given to the Harvard University School of
Law.Through the courtesy of the Law School Library-Manuscript
Collection I was able to examine these papers this Spring and found
some references to Eleanor’s cousins ( who are probably Christian
descendants of the fourth Wodzislawska daughter) in a 1969 letter
to a Dr. Batavia. In this letter there was mention of a gift of
Eleanor’s extensive writings and reference materials to the Polish
Academy of Science in 1969 in honor of her mother Anja (Wodzislawska)
Touroff. Another letter indicated that a Mme. Stefa Djiumbenska of
Wanda,of Warsaw was a cousin who could be consulted in some way.

Cousins listed in the first letter were:

Miss Anjia Olszewska @ 17 Machnaki St., M30A, Warsaw 22
Dr.Kryptina Roszkowska, 5-A Katowicka St., Warsaw 33

Has anyone suggestions as to how I can find these cousins or their
descendants so that I might learn more of their family history .
Thanks!

Jewish Gen ID #169578
Searching: Nathan Nucum SPOLENSKY

Born 1885 Kherson, Russia, the family then resided in Novamirigrod, Russia.
Shatel is now called Novomyrhorod, Ukraine. The records I have copies of, are
his (Naturalizations Papers) stating he had left Southampton, England and
arrived New York City 1904 .at age 19, listed as a carpenter

To save all interested individuals who wish to help my search, and to save them
a great deal of their time and effort.

Note I have been searching my dad’s records for a long time, and at this point
accrued a great many documented copies of the history of his life in New York
until his demise. What I need desperately to complete his history record, is his
1904 ships manifest into New York City.

David Pinski's "Lamentations" #yiddish

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I have put online the prose poem "Lamentations" written by one of the
world's foremost Yiddish playwrights, the late David Pinski. In the July
1943 edition of the "American Mercury" magazine, Pinski delivered a striking
yet poignant message about the Holocaut that had befallen so many in Europe,
at a time when it was said that the United States had no knowledge of what
was happening in Europe.
The direct link to the poem is

SITE CITE - www.jgbs.org - Bavarian Schwabia database #germany

Alan Ehrlich
 

I'd like to draw the attention of gersigers to the recently opened "Jewish
Genealogy in Bavarian Swabia" Web site:

www.jgbs.org

As the name indicates, it serves Jewish genealogists with roots in Bavarian
Swabia, and in particular the cities/towns of Altenstadt, Augsburg,
Binswangen, Buttenwiesen, Ederheim, Fellheim, Fischach, Guenzburg,
Hainsfarth, Harburg, Huerben [u umlaut] -Krumbach, Ichenhausen, Kleinerdlingen,
Kriegshaber-Augsburg, Memmingen, Monchsdeggingen [o umlaut],Nordlingen [o umlaut]
Oettingen, Osterberg, Pfersee-Augsburg, Steinhart, Steppach and Wallerstein.

To date - thanks to data generously transcribed by Rolf Hofmann - a growing
interactive online database of 7179 historical Birth, Marriage, Death and/or
Circumcision records is provided for the locations: Ederheim, Hainsfarth,
Huerben-Krumbach, Kleinerdlingen, Moenchsdeggingen, Steinhart and Wallerstein.

Additionally, work by volunteers is continuing and further records/locations
currently or soon will be transcribed and added to the database.

The site also provides an online forum open all who are researching their Jewish
ancestors in these regions, as well as other useful information and links.

The entire "operation" is volunteer based; and access to everything
(databases, forum, etc.) is free of charge.

Finally, registration is required. Although it may now be possible to
register directly at the site, when I first visited there, online
registration was disabled; and a user name/password had to be requested
from: membership@jgbs.org Best regards to all,

Alan Ehrlich Geneva, Switzerland <alan.ehrlich@ehrlich-online.com>

MODERATOR NOTES: Our system does not understand letters in your email that are
not part of the standard USA English computer alphabet. If you include
accent marks such as the "umlaut" your text will probably be garbled when
it is seen by our readers.

It is usual to add the letter "e" after the accented vowel to replace the
accent mark. However, this may make it hard to find the subject word using
the Archive Search engine.

Moderator has changed some of the above town names accordingly.

For best results we ask you to treat important German words including the umlaut
mark this way:

Moenchsdeggingen / Monchsdeggingen [o umlaut]

This will insure that your text is not garbled and also that the word will
be found by anyone searching the archives for either spelling.

You should keep this in mind when searching data bases for names and town names.
If you use an "exact spelling" search, you would not find Moenchsdeggingen
in a search for Monchsdeggingen, and vice versa. In the early days of my own
research I often missed data entries for my Lowenstein [o umlaut] ancestors
because they were alphabetized as Loewenstein. Be careful with printed indexes
also. Especially in German books, you may have to look for both spellings. MOD

Re: Visiting Theresienstadt #austria-czech

Daniel Kester <djkester@...>
 

The moderator had asked why (in my post >from yesterday) I referred to
Theresienstadt as a "ghetto" rather than as a "concentration camp".
Interesting question. I have seen it referred to in both ways. I
guess that I would classify Theresienstadt in the same category as
the Warsaw Ghetto or the Lodz Ghetto: a place where Jews were forced
to live before being sent to the death camps. A place where the Nazis
could have control of the Jewish population, but where the goal of
the Nazis was neither immediate extermination nor slave labor, but
simply a place to house the Jews separate >from the non-Jewish
population (as were the medieval ghettos).

The fact that Theresienstadt was an existing town with existing buildings
into which the Jews were put (like Warsaw and Lodz) rather than an
artifically created camp of barracks, differentiates it >from other
concentration camps. However, if a concentration camp is defined as
a place where large groups of people are imprisoned due to who they
are (rather than for what they have done), Theresienstadt is
definitely a concentration camp. But then Warsaw and Lodz would also
be concentration camps (although I have never seen them referred to
that way). A difference is that in Warsaw and Lodz a large part of
the population came >from Warsaw or Lodz. But later, both of those
ghettos also received a large amount of people >from surrounding towns
and villages, as the Polish countryside was cleared of Jews. I guess
that the characteristics of Theresienstadt fall somewhere between the
characteristics of the "Ghettos" (Warsaw, Lodz, etc.) and the
"concentration camps" such as Dachau, Buchenwald, etc., leading to
both terms being used to describe it.

How the different camps are referred to is of more than just
linguistic interest. The general population doesn't realize that out
of the hundreds of Nazi concentration camps, only 6-8 were death
camps (extermination camps) with the specific purpose of killing the
prisoners soon after their arrival. This confusion is put to use by
Holocaust deniers. They point to the non-death camps like Dachau or
Buchenwald, show that Jews were not systematically murdered there,
but rather died >from disease, hunger, and hard labor, and conclude
that the mass extermination did not happen.

Daniel Kester's essay on his visit to Terezin could not have come at a
better time. In less than 3 weeks we leave for Berlin, Prague (and Terezin),
Mikulov, Brno, Lednice and Vienna, Hollabrunn, Kittsee and Mistelbach.

Thank you, Daniel, for your brilliant, informative, well-organized,
easy-to-follow summary of your trip to Terezin. I have printed it and shall
take it with me.

I would like to suggest you also send your posting to the Austria-Czech SIG
<austriaczech@lyris.jewishgen.org> [Only SIG members can post messages to
a SIG list. Mr. Kester would have to be an Austriaczech SIG subscriber to post
his essay. I agree that it should be posted to that list. MODERATOR]

The purpose of our trip is to visit the cities and towns where my ancestors
came from, to walk the streets they lived on, to pray in the (remaining)
synagogues they worshipped in, to pay our respects at their graves (those
still standing) and to meet the descendants of my gggg grandfather I never
knew existed until I "found" them six months ago.

When we return, I hope I can be as eloquent as Daniel in summarizing the
interesting aspects of our trip that might benefit our SIG.
