BOOK CITE- New Book on Deportation to Gurs #germany

Werner Frank
 

Message >from Werner Frank

My book: "The Curse of Gurs: Way Station to Auschwitz"
is now available on Amazon in either print or eBook format.

http://www.amazon.com/Werner-L.-Frank/e/B008Y047IO/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1352322586&sr=1-2-ent

Summary of THE CURSE OF GURS: WAY STATION TO AUSCHWITZ

Gauleiters Robert Wagner and Joseph Buerckel, the German administrative
heads of the States of Baden and the Pfalz/Saar, sought to be the first to
make their territories Judenrein (free of Jews). They engineered a massive
westward expulsion of over 6,500 Jews to Camp de Gurs, located in unoccupied
Vichy France. The event became known as the Wagner-Buerckel Aktion and was
offered by the Gauleiters as their gift to the Fuehrer in October 1940.

The relocation of Jews to the Gurs internment camp became an intermediate
step after the infamous “Final Solution” was pronounced at the Wannsee
Conference in January 1942. This Nazi annihilation program triggered yet a
second round of transports that would move the incarcerated Jews >from Gurs
to the Parisian suburb of Drancy, an assembly point where the victims faced
a final deportation to the death camp of Auschwitz.

The story of this little known tragedy is told by the author who delves into
the background of the historical events that led to the Aktion. He recounts
the impact of this cataclysm on the area surrounding his boyhood residence
in Eppingen and relates the tribulations and ultimate fate encountered by
seven-hundred members of his widely located family in the State of Baden.

List of 1,000 Jews deported from Beuthen / Bytom to Auschwitz #germany

Lande
 

In May/June 1942 the Germans deported the 900-1,000 Jews resident in
Beuthen/Silesia, now Bytom, Poland, to Auschwitz. There are no known
survivors.

Some years ago I indexed the Gestapo lists of deportees and this
is available on JewishGen. However, the information on the lists was
limited to names, local addresses and date of deportation, i.e. no date or
place of birth or maiden name. Although it also had the deportation lists,
the Bundesarchiv has never included the names in the Gedenkbuch on the
grounds that without date of birth the information would be confusing.

I have gone over the lists, corrected some typos, and added, where
available, dates and places or birth as well as maiden names for 918
persons. This database will be available on JewishGen, though the timing is
not known. I have also sent the database to the Bundesarchiv with the
request that the deaths of these hitherto invisible Holocaust victims be
publicly recognized.

Rabbi KOOK, Obm #rabbinic

Sarah Lasry <srhlsr@...>
 

A number of years ago, I was informed by my late maternal grandmother,
Rachel STERN (nee LEVINE), Of Blessed Memory, who was born in Seta,
Lithuania, that we are related to Rabbi KOOK, Of Blessed Memory, born
in Lithuania, I believe, and later- after he moved to Israel, became
Chief Rabbi there (this was before 1948- he became Chief Rabbi of
Palestine.)

Unfortunately, I didn't write down any details re our relationship to
the KOOK family....

Does anybody know if the KOOK family tree is easily accessible? If so,
where?

Would anybody know what the relationship between the LEVINE and KOOK
families is?

I leave it up to the moderators if replies be sent directly to me, & or
to the mailing list here.

Please do reply if you can help; thank you in advance,

For the French-speaking people: The translation in French of the diary of Sheina Gram of Preili. #latvia

Christine Usdin
 

Dear All,
As, I think, that the short diary of Sheina Gram, a victim of the holocaust
in Preili( Latvia), has never been translated in French, I decided to
translate it >from the Russian, which had been translated >from Yiddish.

http://usdine.free.fr/sheinagram.html

If ever you have other info about Sheina Gram/ Gramm, please email me. Some
of my siblings were " Gram" >from Vishki, but may be originally >from Preili.

Best regards
Christine Usdin

Re: Expulsion of Jews from Latvia, during World War I #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Another resource for locating information on the expulsion of the Jews during
World War I is The Jewish Chronicle newspaper.

In the June 4, 1915 issue, it states that all Jews were ordered to leave within
five days and wind up their affairs >from the province of Courland and the
district of the Ust-Dvinsk fortress. Approximately, 25,000 Jews were affected
by this order and were taken beyond the Pale of Settlement. Exemptions were the
districts of Jacobstadt, Illutsk, Frederickstadt and ailing Jews of Mitau.
