After researching them for years, I've found no records at all

According to Polish archives only available records for Tarnobrzeg are
located in Kielce Government Archives branch of Sandomierz.

Survived records cover only births events for years 1889 to 1901 and
1903 to 1911.

This is probably the reason that you can't obtain Polish era documents.

[...] So could BROD and BROTMAN be the same name? Or were the records

Well it could, however:

BROD probably means someone >from one of the many places called Brod,
as Brod is a common Slavic toponym, meaning "ford" [= a shallow place with
good footing, where a river or stream may be crossed by wading, riding or
driving]. <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brod>

BROTMAN, imho, would be Yiddish for "bread-man",
so a baker or seller of bread.

Not quite the same, isn't it.

grateful to all the volunteers who have come forward to assist us thus far.
We are also very fortunate to have some former committee members re-joining
the group who are sharing their experience and vast knowledge of Latvian
resources with us. I will be chairing the group and look forward to working

The origin of BRANSPIZ family #general

gabi.rule@...
 

Hello everyone,

We're trying to trace the origins of the Jewish family name BRANSPIZ.
We (me and my friend who holds this family name) know so far that they
lived a decent time in Ukraine (in the 20th century), before some of
them immigrated to Israel, but their German first names (we are
talking about names like Adolf, that are clearly not Ukrainian) and
their knowledge of the German language (and also Yiddish, of course),
and their German physical appearance - really confuses us.
I tried to search for this family name in the JewishGen website, and
all I found was a family name that looks like Branspiz but a little
bit different than it in its spelling, in Romania. But clearly, they
don't come >from Romania. My friend, her father and her grandfather
(who were Branspiz family members) were all born in Ukraine.
Unfortunately we know nothing about the parents of her grandfather and
so on. The thing is that it seems that the family name is very rare.
We know for sure that the family name is written exactly like that:
Branspiz (because her grandfather was a red army soldier in WWII and
we found a little bit information about him on the web in a Jewish
memorial book, and the family name was written like I've mentioned,
and in addition my friend's passport also shows that the spelling is
correct).
It should be noted, that my friend remembers clearly that her father's
Ukrainian passport showed that he was a German in the Nationality
section.

Any suggestions on how do we find the origins of this "lost" Jewish
family name? We are interested in finding where this family came from,
before they arrived to Ukraine.

Thank for your attention.

Regards,

Gavriel Yadgarov

Stolpersteine for non-Jews ? #germany

Herbert Kaufmann <kauf33@...>
 

Hello colleagues,

I recently came across a photo of a Stolperstein for Klaus Bonhoeffer
outside his residence in Charlottenburg. It has his year of birth, that he
was in the resistance, and his dates of arrest, sentencing and execution.
He was an older brother of the famous Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor
and thinker who was involved in plots to kill Hitler.

I did not know that there are Stolpersteine commemorating non-Jews. Are
there any for other anti-Nazi Germans or for gay or Gypsy victims?
