ViewMate: German Death Notice - Translation Needed #germany

Brad Fanta <bfanta@...>
 

Hello GerSig:

I've posted a 1906 death record written in German for Heinrich POKORNY
that appeared in the Prager Tagblatt. A translation would be greatly
appreciated. It's in German Gothic script so someone who is comfortable
reading that should have no problem. It is on ViewMate here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D21617

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thanks so much! Brad Fanta Bogota, Colombia bfanta@...

Information on Rabbi Zev Zvi Forhand #germany

Norbert Weinberg <norofra@...>
 

When I was a youngster, I attended a school that my father said had been
called " Bais Yaakov" ( but not a girl's school) on the upper side of
Manhattan. I asked him years later why he sent me there, and he said that
the Principal had been involved in the shipping of weapons to Israel( then
Palestine) >from Czechoslovakia.
I have identified the school as being associated with the Heichal Moshe
Congregation (http://heichalmoshe.org/history.htm)founded by Rabbi Lev Lvi
(possibly a typo- in other places, I have seen Zev Zvi)Vorhand and still run
by his son, Rabbi Moshe Vorhand. This is the text:
"Before the war, Rabbi Vorhand was Chief Rabbi of Czechoslovakia and played
a large role in arranging illegal transport of 1500 Jews to Palestine on the
onset of the Holocaust in 1939. After being liberated >from a concentration
camp near the end of the war, he again became a great force of movement for
displaced European Jews and set out to rescue refugees by arranging for
their passports to safe residency."
I would appreciate it if anyone has more information about him. Thank you,

Rabbi Dr. Norbert Weinberg norofra@... Encino, CA

JGSLA - Jews in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Polish Republics - Thursday, Feb. 16th in Los Angeles with Kostek Gebert #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles invites you to
join us for:

"The Jews in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Polish Republics:
Discontinuity and Reinvention"

Speaker: Konstanty Gebert

Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 7:30 PM
Skirball Cultural Center ~ Magnin Auditorium
2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90049

For much of contemporary history, Poland, home to the world's,
and then Europe's, largest Jewish population, did not exist as an
independent country. The two periods of foreign occupation
separate what is known as the three Polish republics. In each
republic the Jews perceived themselves, and were treated, very
differently: as an indigenous social caste, as an alien
ethno-religious minority, and as equal citizens. The republics,
too, were fundamentally different countries, in terms of political
system, demography and borders. Furthermore, developments
in the periods of foreign occupation (the onset of modernity, the
Shoah) were crucial for Polish Jewry. In this sense one can say
that, as Poland periodically had to reinvent itself, so did Polish
Jews: with fundamental consequences for Jewish identity and fate.

Konstanty Gebert is board member of the Taube Centre for the
Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland and an international reporter
and columnist at "Gazeta Wyborcza," Poland's biggest daily. He
was a democratic opposition activist in the Seventies, when he
was also an organizer of the Jewish Flying University, and an
underground journalist in the Eighties under martial law. He is
the founder of the Polish Jewish intellectual monthly Midrasz,
and board member of Einstein Forum in Potsdam, Germany. He
has taught in Poland, Israel and the US and has written books on
the Polish democratic transformation and on French policy
toward Poland, the Yugoslav wars and the wars of Israel, Torah
commentary and post-war Polish Jewry.

Mr. Gebert will be introduced by the Honorable Joanna
Kozinska-Frybes, Consul General of the Republic of Poland in
Los Angeles.

Co-sponsored by UCLA's Center for Jewish Studies & the
Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Los Angeles.
Free to all. Traveling Library opens at 7:00 PM.

Family Mystery - ANGEL and FRANSES Family #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I have a family mystery to solve. My great-great grandfather
Moise ANGEL's youngest sister was named Mazaltov ANGEL.
Mazaltov was born in 1861 and married in 1875 in Larisa, Greece,
to Itzhak Eliahu FRANSES. I know what became of the descendants
of all his siblings except for Mazaltov. Does anyone recognize
Mazaltov's name or her husband's name?

Best Regards,

DERMAN, Bielsko Biala, Walbrzych, Poland #galicia

iris raviv <irisraviv@...>
 

Hello, Dear Colleagues.

I've just recently discovered that my mother's cousin, Jozef
DERMAN, who was believed to be perished in the Holocaust -
had survived it! He was born in 1903/1907 in Ivano-Frankivsk,
Ukraine, son of Pinkas DERMAN and Helena nee FISCHNER. I'm
now eagerly trying to find Jozef's family, as a priceless gift to
my 88 year old mom. Jozef was married to Zofia (b. 1912/1916,
daughter of Meshulam and Lea HOLDER), and before WWII they
lived in Bielsko Biala, Poland. They had a son, Marian Pawel
(b. 1947, Walbrzych, Poland). They might have left Poland
around 1950.

Any help will be much appreciated,

Yours,

Wrong Certificate of Arrival #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

I received the Naturalization papers for my step-mother's father, Max
(Mejlich) GOLDWASSER. The Certificate of Arrival has the name, Dowfey
Ribikesscha. I checked the passenger manifest (S.S. Eisenach arriving in
Baltimore, Maryland on June 9, 1913.) I think the name on the manifest is
actually Dorofy Riibikesscka. I believe Dorofy is female. The last place of
residence is not where Max lived. I don't think this could be Max.
The number on the Certificate of Arrival has the same number as Max's
Declaration of Intention. How could this be?
