David Mink
 

On behalf of the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, we
are extremely pleased to announce that the distinguished French priest,
author, and humanitarian, Father Patrick Desbois, will be the keynote
speaker at the opening session in Philadelphia, Sunday, August 2, 2009. His
speech will be, "The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest's Journey to Uncover the
Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 million Jews," which is also the title of his
book.

The grandson of a deportee to the Nazi Rawa Ruska forced-labor Camp in
Ukraine, Father Desbois is best known for his work in searching for and
uncovering mass graves in Ukraine and for his book, "The Holocaust by
Bullets."

"My book is an act of prevention of future acts of genocide," Desbois said.
Winner of the B'nai B'rith International Award for Outstanding Contribution
to Relations with the Jewish People, Father Desbois is secretary to the
French Conference of Bishops for Relations with Judaism, advisor to the
Cardinal-Archbishop of Leon and advisor to the Vatican on the Jewish
Religion. Father Desbois is the president of Yahad in Unum
(www.yahadinunum.org), whose mission is to increase knowledge and
cooperation between Catholic and Jews.

Commenting on Father Desbois, Conference Co-Chair David Mink said, "We are
extremely pleased to have Father Desbois speak at our conference. He has
performed selfless acts of kindness for the many people of Jewish heritage
who trace their ancestry to Eastern Europe and have not been able to record
the death of loved ones on their family tree."

The Conference in Philadelphia, August 2-7, 2009, will include programs
featuring archivists, researchers and genealogists >from around the world.
For more information, visit www.Philly2009.org.

Registration for the Conference and the Hotel are now open.

Hope to see you all in Philadelphia this summer.

FORELL of Glatz, Silesia; Holleschau, Moravia and Vienna #germany

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I am often in quandary when it comes to cross-SIG postings, but when I
researched this FORELL tombstone in Holleschau, Moravia:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/1845370456/

I found it was a rare name and mercifully there were few holocaust victims
listed on Yad Vashem. I have added links under the tombstone picture.

I checked the FTJP and JGFF and message archives and found four Ger-SIG
messages in 1998-2001 >from Vivian Salama about her Glatz/Klodzko {Silesian}
FORELL relatives. They are obviously the ones listed in the FTJP and JGFF.

re Glatz/Klodzko: there was obviously a pretty close relationship with Bohemia
noted here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_of_Glatz
Moravia is not mentioned, but I think we can assume Moravia also came into
the picture.

I do wonder now if this Moravian family came >from Silesia or perhaps the
Silesian family came >from Moravia? Migration between the two territories
was quite common.

If anyone can decipher the Hebrew on the tombstone, we might learn more.
Eleven years may be a long time to wait for a link, but perhaps, at last,
here is a clue, however tenuous, for Vivian [btw I am not related!].

German Residenten List #germany

Lande
 

On February 25 the German Government will turn over to the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum its Residenten Liste (database) containing the
names of about 550,000 Jews who were resident in Germany prior to the Nazi
regime. This database, which had previously been given to Yad Vashem,
includes name, date and place of birth and fate (e.g. emigration, death in
the Holocaust, etc.) to the extent known. It is far more extensive than the
German Gedenkbuch (Memorial Book) which listed about 125,000 German Jews who
had perished in the Holocaust, since it is estimated that about 80 percent
of Jews resident in Germany prior to Hitler did not perish in the Holocaust.

Procedures for access at the USHMM to the new database will be established
and announced. Due to German privacy laws this material may not be placed
on the web.

Re: Which arrondissements for streets in Paris? #france

A book concerning the story of the streets of
Paris says that Rue Ste Croix de la Bretonnerie
is the oldest street in Paris (1270). It first
name was "rue de Lagny" or "rue de la
Grande-Bretonnerie". It became "rue
Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie" in 1314. Rue
Oberkampf : in the middle of 18th century part of
it was named "chemin de Mesnil-Maudan" or
"Menil-Mautemps" ; another part was named "rueChapus";
a third part was named "rue de la Roulette", and a last part
"rue de la Haute-Borne". These three streets merged and
became only one in 1806 that was named rue de Menilmontant,
and it became rue d'Oberkampf in 1864
