Re: Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

Further to Peter's reply with regard to Zavod and Kol...

My NADWORNY name is beyond uncommon among Jews. My family came >from
Odessa. All the non-Jews with the name come >from Poland or northern
Ukraine as do the very few other Jewish families with the name
(it's an occupational title meaning someone who worked on or managed
an estate).

I have always reasoned that the family started off in Poland and
emigrated to Odessa. But then again as Jews commonly were hired to
manage Polish nobles' estates my family could be independent of others
Jewish families with the name. I think you have to follow all
possibilities. The name also refers to "court" like court chancellor
in Russia. But often online presence of the name is on Polish sites
discussing fantasy sci-fi books!

And family mythology (stories everyone insists are true but no one
can prove)can send you off on wild goose chases.My relatives didn't
know about non-Jewish NADWORNYs back in the day--and somehow the story
got to circulating in my family that my gf had been a philanderer
and had children with a Catholic woman but left her and so there was
a Catholic branch of the family!! Not true but we all believed it
(I actually met a member of that Catholic family who had converted
to Judaism! Life is interesting).

HOROWITZ bakers #general

mpcamitta@...
 

Dear genners,
I am wondering if any of you can help with this question. Of my great
uncle Leibe BASSEIN, it was said in an obituary that he was born into a
family of bakers. His father, Betsalal, also a cantor in Minsk, worked
in a relative's bakery and was known in Minsk for his excellent matzoh.
In the U.S., Betsalel also worked in a relation's bakery. I am
wondering if that bakery might have been a HOROWITZ bakery in Minsk
and in the U.S., as in HOROWITZ-MARGARETEN.
Sincerely,
Miriam Camitta

Seeking AQUENIN/BURDO in France #general

A S Goldberg
 

Anna AQUENIN (nee BURDO) was living in Pontoise (France) in May 1991 when
she submitted Holocaust Victim testimonies to Yad Vashem. I would very much
like to contact her or her immediate family - I have no idea if she is still
alive. A French White Pages search for Aquenin in Pontoise produces a
blank. Can anyone, please, help me?

Please respond direct to me at alancomm@netmedia.net.il.
Thank you

Alan... A Google search on Bukovina (Bukowina) will tell you more than you
ever wanted to know about this part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. As
regards Artur Kolnik, the painter and jiddishist, he was born April 06, 1890
in Stanislawow, Galicia, lived in Czernowitz, Bukovina between 1918 and
1931, and died in Paris, France in 1972,

See the Czernowitz-L website at http://members.shaw.ca/czernowitz/ that's

I have been researching Bukovina and am a bit confused - was it/is it a
general area, like a district, or were there several villages and shtetls
as per Mapquest called Bukovina - or both? Which, if any, were inhabited by
Jews, specifically the painter Artur Kolnik?

Yom ha Shoah and VE Day Concerts in the UK - May 2005 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Sadly we have few, if any, SIG members in the {UK}
Midlands. Nevertheless, I am sure we all wish our
member Jacqueline Bowen Cole every success with her
two concerts this week entitled "Homage to Szymon
Laks":

Beth Shalom Holocaust Memorial Centre in Nottingham at
7.15pm on Thursday 5 May, 2005

Adrian Boult Hall, Birmingham Conservatoire in
association with Birmingham City Council and
Representative Council of Birmingham and Midland
Jewry, Sunday 8 May 2005 at 7.30pm

Jewish ex-servicemen in Birmingham West Midlands
will benefit >from the concerts.

For the full programme, please see "Events" in:

http://www.viktorullmannfoundation.org.uk/

Jacqueline is a tireless exponent of the music of
composers who suffered in the holocaust, especially
Viktor Ullmann. She founded the Viktor Ullmann
Foundation UK in 2002. Its purpose is to honour,
celebrate and remember the life, courage and genius of
the composer and pupil of Arnold Schoenberg, and his
fellow artists and musicians in the Theresienstadt
(Terezín) ghetto. This will be achieved through
concerts, festivals, cabaret, lectures, Holocaust
education and film.

The Familianten law; one more thing #austria-czech

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

In the Gold book on Moravia there is also a very interesting and informative
article on Moravian Jewry by Dr. Theodor Haas, entitled Statistical
Observation on the Jewish Population of Moravia in the Past and Present. In
this article Dr. Haas discusses also the introduction of the family law by
Emperor Karl VI, and states the following:

Thus, according to a court rescript of Emperor Karl VI, dated July 31, 1725,
the admission of Jews in places were they were not resident was punishable
by a fine of 1000 Ducats, and it established the highest number
[Hoechstzahl] of "systematised" [ "systematisierten"] families at 5106.
With a court decree dated Sept. 25, 1726 and made known on Oct. 24, 1726 the
marrying [Verehelichung] of Jews was only permitted, insofar that only the
eldest son after the death of the father could enter into a valid marriage
and in this way after the death of his father received his "family site"
["Familienstelle"].

Frankly I did not know that the eldest son in the family could get married
only after the death of his father and I was quite shocked to read this.
I assume the Jews of the day found ways to get around this.

VM6004/5/6:Translations from German or Yiddish #austria-czech

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I hope you will be kind enough to help with a translation >from 2
postcards sent to Vienna in 1916. I'm not sure whether the language is
German or Yiddish. The back of one of the postcards may be neither of
those languages.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6004 is the back of a postcard sent
in 1916 >from Oscar Singer in Gleichenberg to Clara Singer in Vienna.


http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6005 is the front of that postcard.
There is writing across the top that I hope is sufficiently legible for
translation. The photo is of Oscar's two daughters, Helena and Mathilda.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6006 is the back of a second
poscard sent by Lusia Singer in Gleichenberg to Clara Singer in Vienna.

Is anyone familiar enough with Vienna to know where Wehlistrasse 220/12
would be located?

Does anyone know of or recognize any of these folks? I believe they were
summering in Gleichenberg, but lived in Drogobych.

Thank you all in advance for your generous assistance.
