Gombin-Gostynin Trip, May 17-22, 2019 #general

 

On May 17-22, 2019, a group of descendants of the Jews of Gombin and Gostynin will
visit the two towns and the Chelmno Extermination camp in order to commemorate the

Jews in 1942. The visit will include tours of Gombin and Gostynin, meetings with

DANNENBERG descendants #general

Mark Michaels
 

I am looking to find the birth place of an Adolph Dannenberg I have a
photograph of Adolph with wife and two children.

All the information below is deduced >from census records but appear to
be for the correct Adolph Dannenberg.

b. 1868c who arrived in USA 1885 and was naturalised. Lived in Chicago, Cook; with
wife variously Amelia, Emilia and Emily. 2 children Milton b. 1898c and Sadie
b. 1896c.

Milton married either Bertha and had a son Robert or married Hazel and
had a son Jack b. 1929.

Sadie married Louis or Lewis Kahn and had a daughter Jean A Kahn.

My wife is descended >from Barnett Dannenberg in UK but we do not know
their place of origin: census entries give variously Russia, Poland
and Germany. UK family legend says Riga however that could well mean via Riga.

Jewish-Polish-German realms of memory. A triple neighbourhood - Berlin April/19 #germany

Yvonne Stern
 

Conference in Berlin, April 15,.2019, Berlin at the

Zentrum fuer Historische Forschung der Polnischen Akademie der
Wissenschaften Berlin
(Center for Historical Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences Berlin)

The exploration of multilateral Jewish-Polish-German relations is
crucial for the reading and understanding of the deeper content of
European culture. In order for this reading to be correct, it is
necessary to distinguish and take into account several overlapping
perspectives: the inner- Jewish and the external one, resulting >from the
perception of the Jewish world by non-Jews and vice versa. The long-term
continuity and development of the Ashkenazic Diaspora tradition and the
interruption of this continuity caused by the Holocaust are reflected in
the asymmetry between the Jewish and non-Jewish memory cultures.
Recalling the key contents and threads of this "interrupted" tradition
and memory is the most important goal of the conference.

The methodology of the project rests on the concept of lieu
de m=C3=A9moire
(Pierre Nora, Hagen Schulze, Etienne Fran=C3=A7ois), which overlaps
with the notion of ha-makom (a place - singular, in Hebrew) rooted in Jewish
tradition. Its key position in Jewish culture developed >from the need to
maintain cultural continuity in the context of the diaspora, and the
concomitant variability of references to geographic locations.
Consequently, the ha-mekomot (the plural form) have become shared realms
of memory, places of reference and recollection, realms of departure,
and of return. Because of this, Jewish culture and tradition is
primarily a culture of memory. For the Jewish community and diaspora,
memory and realms of memory, as well as ways of commemorating are vital
instances of shared reference.

Diverting >from national historiographies, we expect the research
presented during the conference to define anew the relationship
between the three communities mentioned above, and to rest on two
research perspectives: the Beziehungsgeschichte or the 'history of
mutual relations', and 'history of the second degree', i.e., studies on
cultures of memory. Such point of view emphasizes the multilateral
influences between the different communities. The interaction can take
place both between nations/peoples and nation-states and between
entities that are regional, religious, class or gender in nature.

An interesting focal point is the history of particular realms of memory
(e.g. concepts and ideas, events, people and places).We are also
interested in tracing the process how they developed, evolved and
changed their meaning in all three cultures. The fundamental questions
to be answered would be: How did they emerge and how did they merge into
Polish and German cultural spaces? What forms did they take and how
were/are they manifested? Finally, we would like to define their current
place in the memory of all three cultures. Possible examples of such
common realms of memory would be: Polin, shtetl, Ashkenaz, Golem, the
Eternal Jew, Alilat Dam, the Messiah. However, we are open to individual
proposals of Jewish-Polish-German realms of memory.

We would like to invite to participate in our conference scholars of
broadly understood humanities: i.e. history, art history, literature and
linguistics (Hebrew, Yiddish, German, Polish), cultural sciences, gender
studies, Jewish studies, etc. The research questions do not require to
be chronologically confined.

Please submit your paper proposals as abstracts (250 words) in English
along with a short academic CV until April 15th, 2019, to:
malgorzata.stolarska-fronia@cbh.pan.pl,
phone: + 49 30 486 285 58.

The conference will be held in English (no translation provided), and is
preliminarily scheduled for Septemebr 4th-5th, 2019.

four new historical maps of Galicia now on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

Four new and beautiful historical maps of the Kingdom of Galicia are
now on the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/

These maps span 1775 to 1872, including one of the earliest maps in
our collection, a very early road map >from 1820, and some of the best
map designs we've seen. The four maps on our site are all thanks to
Areta Kovalska and her Forgotten Galicia blog site, which featured
them among many other maps of Galicia in a special post one year ago:

http://forgottengalicia.com/historical-maps-of-galicia-1775-1918/

Regular users of GG's Map Room will recognize many of the maps in
the Forgotten Galicia list, but the research behind the post found
several maps we had not discovered, including the four we processed
for our own recent post.

Once you are on the Forgotten Galicia site, if this is your first visit you
really owe it to yourself to browse the well-curated collection of articles,
which report on Areta's research into multicultural Galician history
including the physical traces of Galician art and industrial works still to
be found in today's cities and towns, >from monumental architecture to
fragments of tiles and paint. Already seven years in development, and
covering language, music, art, and literature, the site works much like
the ghost signs it features - revealing the layers of history visible in the
modern sights. We hope you enjoy Forgotten Galicia and find it as
useful as we do; it makes a great companion on a real or virtual visit to
Galicia today.

The four new maps are:

One of the earliest kingdom-wide maps in our collection, this 1775
administrative map by Gussefeld is colorful and detailed, making it an
important reference >from the first years of Austrian rule:

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-gussefeld-1775/

An 1820 road map of the kingdom, by Johann Blaim of the imperial
roads and bridges administration, showing road types and quality along
with selected administrative points, schools and centers of religion, and
both natural and man-made resources:

A map of the full kingdom made by Weiland in 1849 - a revised version
of an earlier Weiland map in our collection:

intended for use in schools in the kingdom:
