A phone call to an official at the Haifa Hevra Kadisha revealed the following:

A Miriam WARSCHAUER died on 7 Jan 1948 and is buried
at Haifa's Old Cemetery "Hof haCarmel" (where also MY parents are buried).
Her father's name was Chaim.

Note: Miriam is the Hebrew version of Maria.

New Ukraine Secret Service database eases info search
January 25, 2009

KIEV, Ukraine (JTA) -- The Ukrainian Secret Service opened a
database to simplify access to materials stored in its archives.

The Ukrainian Secret Service Information Center, which includes a
digital archives center, was launched last week in Odessa.

Odessa Jewish community leaders told JTA they appreciate the
opening of the center, which gives them access to archival
documents that shed light on the operations of the KGB and
liberation movements in Ukraine, Zionist and Hehalutz organization
activities in the 1920s and 1930s, dissident movements, and
materials concerning the Holocaust and Jewish underground
activities in the Soviet Union.

The Odessa Jewish community appreciates free access to important
archive materials concerning Jewish activities in the former USSR
and believes that declassification and conversion of archive
materials into digital form will help to clarify many pages of
Jewish history and to strengthen Jewish identification, Berl
Kapulkin, an Odessa Jewish community official, told JTA.

Digital archives centers have opened in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa.

The working groups head, Dr. Volodymyr Vyatrovych, an adviser to
the chairman of the Ukrainian Secret Service, said an array of
materials covering the Holocaust in Ukraine will soon be made
available at the center. Vyatrovych has proposed that the Odessa
Jewish community use such materials for a future Holocaust museum.

Documents at the digital archives center have been arranged
according to topics. They include Holocaust; Holodomor, or Great
Famine; Repression in Ukraine; and Movement of Dissidents. The
archives also provide access to a large number of photos,
scientific journals and books, and the digital versions of
exhibitions and presentations.

Subject: BLUMENTHAL, Help with marriage, TB and divorce
From: A G <mollyblum@...>
Date: Sat, 24 Jan 2009 08:00:29 -0500
X-Message-Number: 1


Hello,

I ran into another conundrum while researching the BLUMENTHAL side of my
tree. My ggrandfather David BLUMENTHAL supposedly married my
grandmother Rebecca SCHOENBERG around 1896 in Rochester, NY after she
arrived >from Kuzmin Ukraine at age 19 for an arranged marriage. David's
1st (maybe 2nd) wife supposedly died and he had 4 small children to care
for. Rebecca went on to give birth to 4 more girls- one being my
grandmother Molly BLUMENTHAL in 1905. The problem is that I received
his former wife's death certificate (her name was also Mollie (Malka)
nee GRYNGRAS/GRINGRAS/GREENGRASS) except that she did not die until
1903!! Her cause of death was TB and she died in a house a few houses
down >from where David lived with Rebecca.

My questions are:

Would it have been strange to name your daughter with a new wife after
your deceased wife?

* If the wife were truly dead, then it wouldn't have been
particularly peculiar. Perhaps a bit inconsiderate of the new wife
though.

Does anyone know if there was an "out" so to speak if your wife was ill
with TB, in order to marry someone else? Was divorce the only option?

* Pretty much, yes. Bigamy has been frowned on post Solomon... You
should check with the beit din (rabbinical court) about whether or not
TB would qualify a person for a sefer k'ritut (scroll of cutting off),
commonly known as a get (Jewish divorce). Divorces are permitted for any
reason or no reason, -- for just cause. One such cause is "loathsome
disease." But whether TB (or consumption as it was then known) would
fall under this category, I don't know.

* The get could be obtained by the husband without his wife's
consent. However, the get would also require him to pay substantial
sums to her (in accordance with the ketubot) and might also require him
to pay for her care as he probably did.

How contagious was TB? I know of a Sanitorium in Rochester that has
long been closed.

* TB was and still is, unfortunately, a very contagious disease and
easily spread in close quarters. When Ellis Island was opened in 1892,
consumption was one of the conditions that could preclude entry into the
U.S.

* It was also a very fashionable disease of the 1890's, if you can
believe this. People thought that women looked their best shortly
before they died of the disease; that writers had a flash of brilliance
before their deaths, etc. Shtetl-lore linked TB with vampirism, since
the victim coughed up blood and people with whom they were close
mysteriously caught it and began to seem drained of their blood, as
well.

* As to sanitoriums -- they were the treatment of choice in the late
1800's. In 1854, Hermann Brehmer proposed the idea that tuberculosis
was indeed a curable disease, and the introduction of the sanatorium
cure provided the first big step toward treatment for tuberculosis. The
measures available to doctors previously had been pretty limited.
Improving social and sanitary conditions and ensuring adequate nutrition
were all that could be done to strengthen the body's defenses against TB
bacteria. Sanatoriums provided a dual function: They isolated the sick
(the source of infection) >from the general population, and they forced
the patients to rest (as well as eat healthy foods and live a regimented
hospital life), thus assisting the healing process. Now we have
antibiotics, and x-rays that can track the ameliorative process. They
didn't have that in the 1890's.

No one discussed our family history and now I am wondering if it was
because he was married to 2 women at the same time/ and or threw his
wife with TB out and brought Rebecca over >from the UKraine.

* The "overlap" as you nicely put it would probably constitute
bigamy in the civil legal system, but if your ancestor obtained a get,
he would have felt that he had handled things appropriately. Remember,
most of our ancestors weren't particularly familiar with the American
way of life and the civil requirements. And if he had married his first
wife in Europe in a religious ceremony and obtained a religious divorce,
he wouldn't have felt it necessary to do anything more.

Truly puzzling?

* Actually, I don't think it's particularly puzzling. It's a sad
case of a man who had four little girls to care for, and a wife that he
probably loved but whom he recognized was dying. He could not have an
unmarried woman in his home, and probably couldn't afford a servant.
What was he to do? I'd almost be willing to bet that his rabbi suggested
the solution! In the long run, it was humane and caring. I would
suggest that Rebecca knew of the situation, but chose not to discuss it
with the children. There are many situations in my own family history
where the people involved knew what was occurring, but chose to keep the
matter private during their livetimes.

Best wishes,

Searching for family of Eugene KRAUSZ / MONROE (professor - languages) #france

John V <jvlachos@...>
 

Hi All,

Eugene was born on 7/10/1904 , 10-July-1904 , 10-7-1904 , 10/7/1904 in a
city named Deta (Deta (Hungarian: Detta, German: Detta) is a town in Timis
County in Banat, western Romania. The Banat area is sometimes considered to
be part of the Transylvania region.) which in 1904 was part of Hungary. It
later became part of Romania, and continues to be so today. Euegen had two
known brothers. His father's first name ISIDOR (or possibly: ISIDORE or
ISIDORO or TEODORO or TEODOR (in English: Theodore) and his mother's maiden
name was SIDONIA (could be her first name and name may have been translated
into Spanish). Eugene Krausz was a highly intelligent man, capable of
speaking seven langages which lead him later to teach foreign languages. He
earned a master's degree >from the University of Budapest. Eugene upon World
War II, fled his country after his brother was shot by the Nazis. His
brother had wrote anti-nazi material and death was the consequence - he was
shot in the family's backyard. It is interesting to note that Eugene helped
many families escape capture by the Nazi's. It has been mentioned in the
family he may have participated in some network to help these families.

Knowing that he may face a similar fate - Eugene decided to leave the
country to escape the persecution of the Jews. [Note: While I find it to be
highly probable that Eugene was indeed Jewish - This isn't confirmed, nor
have I found any evidence deeming so). He changed his last name to Monroe
(possibly to avoid drawing attention to himself while escaping?) He traveled
to France and England (UK) and lived briefly in each country. He may have
traveled to other countries as well.

He later decided to move to Cuba sometime between 1940-1948 - (we assume
perhaps because he wasn't able to enter the US) - where he became a
professor at the University Of Havana. Eugene was also member of the
Masonic Lodge of Havana. He married Idia (shown below) on 12/17/1949 and had
a daughter Beatriz who was born on 7/7/1951.

Eugene's Brother Pedro (Spanish for Peter) also moved to Cuba but may have
died of old age. He had a son named George (Jorge) Krausz who may still be
living in Cuba or somewhere else - we are looking for him.

With Cuba becoming politically unstable - A decision was made to move to
America in the 1960's. Beatriz was able to come to America with her mother
Idia. However, Eugene died in a surgery shortly before their departure.

This page was created in the hopes of finding lost family and ancestors.
Eugene's brother was lost in contact over the years and it is not known if
he ever made it to the US or if his children (George) did. Nor is it known
if Eugene had any other siblings who may have survived the Holocaust.

Eugene may have had another family as some of Idia's papers refer to him
being divorced in her marriage certificate. If you suspect you may have a
connection to this person or anyone mentioned here, please contact me.
