Re: Felix NUSSBAUM - thank you! #germany

Irene Newhouse
 

Felix Nussbaum's immediate family were all Holocaust victims, as was an
uncle and much of his family, save two sisters, Auguste Moses-NUSSBAUM
& Shulamith (Sofie) Yaari NUSSBAUM, both of whom settled in Israel,
one in the vicinity of Engedi. They were heavily involved in creation
of the Felix NUSSBAUM Museum in Osnabrueck. NUSSBAUM had turned over
many of his works to a dentist, Dr. Grosfils, who did not want to let
go of them, although he had not stored them properly & many were in bad shape.

It took 9 years of legal wrangling before Belgian courts recognized the
sisters as NUSSBAUM's heirs and ordered the works turned over to them.

An art auction site lists one NUSSBAUM painting sold recently as being
inherited in a family VAN DYKE; NUSSBAUM's mother's maiden name (though
not necessarily spelled that way).

It's possible that the person my relative visited was a relative on that side.
She's happy with the information I was able to find for her, with the help
of GerSIG members. I've thanked everyone individually, I think. Thanks again!

choice of a room with a king or two double beds:

All accommodations offer:

movie channels, and in-room pay movies
* Plush Grand Bed
* Individual climate control, convenience outlets

* Video messages, video account review, video checkout

Drawing to be held during the first week of February.

To register, follow the link at http://dc2011.org/

Don't miss out on the opportunity to attend great lectures by
top-notch speakers on topics of interest to genealogists. We are
making a concentrated effort to attract fresh lectures on
subjects that have not been previously addressed. Programs at the
hotel conference center by the staff of the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum, National Archives, and Library of
Congress. Evening program and a great Vendor Showcase.

There will be a variety of workshops, include a special track of
workshops and classes for beginners, as well as sessions for

one of our two computer classrooms - PC or Mac.

The Resource Room will abound with books, maps and 40 computers
(PC and Mac) for research. We will have links on the computers to
two dozen databases that are normally fee-based, but for the
conference, you will be able to use them for free.

We anticipate record-setting attendance, and that means more
potential "cousins" and lots of networking.

JOWBR; Lodz New Jewish Cemetery #lodz #poland

Ellen Mains <dranyen@...>
 

In response to Zev Scarson's questions (and for general
information):

Concerning the new Jewish cemetery, I was notified about a month
ago by the Foundation for preserving the memory of the Lodz Jews
(Fundacja Monumentum Iudaicum Lodzense) about the cemetery's new
website. It is www.JewishLodzCemetery.org. (Although one can
select the English version, not everything has been fully
translated.) If you click on "Plan" you will see a diagram of the
cemetery and a key with 4 colors. >from my limited Polish, the
blue areas are male, the pink are female, the green are children,
and the orange are mixed. The Roman numerals are also listed in
these colored blocks, so one can get an idea of the specific
location.

Having been to the cemetery and had some contact with this
Foundation (which tries to fund the care of the cemetery), I can
say it would be extremely unlikely for them, at least at this
time, to be able to provide images of inscriptions or any other
such personalized help. They were badly in need of funds simply
to maintain and help prevent further deterioration (due to
moisture, plant overgrowth, etc.) to what exists and asked me to
spread this message. It was also rare, if not impossible, to be
able to communicate in English, as the Director speaks no English
and may or may not have someone available to translate.

When I travel there again, I would consider the possibility of
trying to locate and photograph a few headstones, as my
grandfather is buried there.(Since I don't read Hebrew or Yiddish,
I will need to find someone in Poland who can accompany me -- it
will take some arranging but is not impossble.)

Re: 2011 Gesher Galicia Renewal Reminder! CORRECTION #galicia

to the Gesher Galicia list, in part:

<< Dear Galitzianers....young and old, near and far...
It's time to ring in the new year by renewing your Gesher Galicia
membership for 2011 if you haven't done so already.
Membership renewal letters were sent out many weeks ago, so if you
forgot to renew or can't find the letter, you can renew online and/or
find instructions on mail renewal by clicking this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/galicia/join_gg.html >>

IMPORTANT (to me, at any rate): If you are already a member but have
mislaid your renewal letter PLEASE DO NOT USE the on-line membership
form at the above web address. Doing that simply makes unnecessary
work for me as I try to reconcile what you write on that form with the
information already in our database. Send me a note and I'll email you a
PDF copy of your current renewal letter, which you can mark up with
corrections and additions as needed.

<< For Galitzianers who are new to this discussion group, perhaps you
don't realize that Gesher Galicia is dues-paying organization. While
subscribing to this list-serve is free, if you choose to join us your dues
entitle you to receive our scholarly quarterly journal, "The Galitzianer" -
available via electronic or paper subscription. Your dues also support
our research projects, regional meetings and IAJGS conference
programming. This year they will also support the re-design of our
website, with an upcoming "members only" section, which will entitle
you to access images of maps and land records and new indexes. >>

We welcome all new members to the dues-paying organization and
anyone wishing to join should indeed go to the URL listed by Pamela
above to obtain a membership form and instruction on how to join.

Renewing and new members should send in their forms SOON as I will
be closing the next edition of the Gesher Galicia Family Finder to
changes no later than the end of January. Of course, you can join or
renew at most any time, but doing so now will ensure your inclusion in
the next edition of the Gesher Galicia Family Finder.

If all goes according to plan, this will be the LAST TIME the Gesher
Galicia Family Finder is issued as a printed book.

<< In 2011 we will also be launching our online "Gesher Galicia Family
Finder" so you can search for other members researching towns and
surnames shared with you, with the ability to update your information
on a constant basis. There will also be a variety of special "member only"
features available in the coming year, so don't delay to renew, re-join (if
you've let your membership lapse) or re-energize your Galician research. >>

MUNSTER from 1906 directory #galicia

Yohanan
 

I wonder if I can get some help in understanding the following
entry for my great uncle, Meszulim MUNSTER, in the 1906 Galicia
Industry directory (from: http://genealogyindexer.org). One entry,
image 278 (d170) >from "Malopolska Genealogical Society", is:
"Munster Meszulim, drz. bud. li. Kolbuszowa fp. w m.)."
The second entry, image 539 (d212) >from "Krosnienska Digital
Library", is: "Munster Meszulim, drz. bud. h. Kolbuszowa (p. w m.)."
I know about him that he had a forest farm and was a wood
supplier, but I did not know that he had a business in Kolbuszowa.

Army Uniform Identification Request #galicia

Brian Blitz
 

Please let me know if you can identify the army uniform in the
following Viewmate image, taken around 1945. I had thought it
may be a Red Army uniform, but have been told it was not:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17592>

My grandfather, Munio/Moritz HEIMBERGER (not pictured), >from
Vienna, served as a medic in the Russian Army during WWII. He
fled Vienna to Brno, Czechoslovakia, where he had family, then
fled to Russia when the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia. He ended
up in Tashkent, joined the Red Army, and was involved in the
battle of Stalingrad. His unit was in Lvov (Lemberg) in April-May
1945. Thank you in advance.
