Expulsion of Jews from Galician front lines to Russia-1915 #galicia

Barb & Howard
 

The Rohatyn Yiskor Book briefly states that some 575 adult Jewish males
were suddenly arrested in the spring of 1915 as suspected German spies
and marched off for detention within Russia. They were held for some time
in Chembar (now known as Belitsky) which was in Penza Provence; then
eventually sent back as far as Ternopol where they were further detained
until 1917 until a smaller group of those who had not by then perished
were allowed to return to Rohatyn.

Seeking more details about these times and circumstances deportations
from the front lines of battle during WW I.

Gesher Galicia IAJGS Conference Suggestions #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Dear Galitzianers:

The annual Gesher Galicia meeting -- an opportunity for our research
community to gather and for us to update you on news of our organization
-- will take place on Monday, July 16th at the IAJGS conference in Salt
Lake City this summer. It will be preceded by our luncheon and be
followed by town and region birds-of-a-feather gatherings, and programs
of special interest to Galitzianers.

Since we in the planning stages, this is the perfect opportunity for you
to make suggestions on the topics and lectures you'd like to see. All
ideas are welcomed, including specific speakers you want to recommend.
If you've attended past conferences or regional meetings, let us know what
you liked best...and what you wished we might have done differently.

Any town and region historians/coordinators, let me know if you plan to
attend and want to schedule a BOF gathering so we can plan accordingly.

I am also coordinating another Jewish film festival for this conference,
so if you know of any new films (documentary or fiction) that would be
of interest to our audience, please provide the specifics. If there were
films you think bear repeating, let me know as well.

The conference will devote the entire afternoon of Monday, July 16th
(>from 12N - 5PM) to Galician programming, if this helps in planning your
schedule.

Please send your suggestions privately to me at:

I look forward to hearing >from you!

Share your JRI-Poland breakthrough story! #galicia

Catherine Youngren
 

Dear friends:

I am one of the hundreds of researchers that owe so much to JRI-Poland
as a result of several research breakthroughs that would not have been
possible without the online indices and Excel Files.

I realized that I have never told JRI-Poland how their wonderful work
directly contributed to reconnecting living members of various family
branches that had been lost to one another for decades, as well as
tracing my family back six generations, discovering my ancestral
villages. Over the years, many of you also have had success stories as
a result of the JRI-Poland database, and if you were one of the
hundreds of researchers whose contributions helped index records >from
your town >from the Excel files.

I'm asking you to write to me now to let JRI-Poland know what the
effect of their efforts has been on your life and your research. I am
volunteering to collect your emails and letters in order to present
JRI-Poland with a package that will be a testament to everyone about
the importance of the work JRI-Poland has and is doing for us and for
future generations.

I am interested in receiving all stories, but especially stories that
relate to how the JRI-Poland database and data in an Excel file helped:

* Holocaust survivors to reunite with other family members or
branches of their family. What were the reactions of survivors about
getting information about their ancestors?

* Former hidden children to gain information about their real identity.

* Scholars or other researchers trying to reconstitute information
about destroyed communities.

* Researchers discovering branches of their family they had thought
destroyed but are now in Australia, South America, Israel, etc.

* Find other family members that your immediate family had lost track
of because of the war (i.e. did an entry in the database help you make
the connection?)

* To build a family tree for medical or genetic reasons?

* In the pursuit of academic work i.e. articles for publication,
thesis topics

I look forward to hearing >from you.
