Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

Researching Hugo NOWAK #austria-czech

Robert Fraser
 

Hi all -

I'm trying to fill in a few plot holes in my family tree.
There are many, but here is one.

Hugo Nowak was one of four children of Moritz Nowak (my
great-grandfather) and his second wife Amalia (Wolf) Nowak.
We know nothing about him, except that he was born on 25
August 1874 in Vienna. He had a brother Oskar (my
grandfather), and two sisters Ida and Ernestine. The latter
died young, and Ida is believed to been murdered in the Am
Steinhof mental home.

My mother, a grand-daughter of Moritz, never met her Uncle
Hugo. So all we know is what she was told by the family.
Apparently he was an actor, married an actress and died away
from Vienna. Not much to go on.
I've checked some of the usual sources. Genteam.at shows his
birth in 1874 and also shows a Hugo Nowak being married in
1922, which might or might not be him.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

BUECHLER, DIAMANT of Filakovo; BREUER of Lucenec, Slovakia #austria-czech

Alyson Breuer
 

Dear Genners:


Thanks to the heroic research of USHMM I have a little more
information on the Hungarian BREUERs of Lucenec, Slovakia, in
particular on Laszlo/Ladislav DIAMANT, the uncle by marriage of my
husband. He was a pharmacist and met a brutal end in 1944, executed
in Hungary with a group of physicians and pharmacists of whose
enforced labor detail he was a member. The upside is that the names
of his parents and birthplace emerged >from the fog: Lorenz Vavro
DIAMANT and Theresia BUECHLER of Fulek/Filakovo, Slovakia, a small
town not far >from Lucenec (HQ for the only BREUERs we can be sure of).
He married Maria BREUER, my husband=E2=80=99s aunt and was the pharmacist o=
f
record in the pharmacy there owned by her father, Otto BREUER.
[Interestingly, a plaque announces that the same building on the main
square has been in continuous use as a pharmacy since 1732!]


However, in following the trail, I came across a Rabbi Dr
Shemuel/Sandor/Alexander BUECHLER, b.1869, who later moved from
Filakovo to Keszthely and met the same fate at Auschwitz as his Jewish
congregation. But given that he merits an entry in Wikipedia and the
small size of the Jewish community in Filakovo, I cannot help but
speculate that Theresia must have been related (sister, cousin?),
since she and her husband would have been born roughly around the same
time as he (1870).


My present question is this: does anyone else know of this
Rabbi/historian/educator or his family? It would be terrific if
Lorenz Vavro DIAMANT=E2=80=99s name also rang a bell and I look forward to
hearing some =E2=80=93 any -- news=E2=80=A6 Slovakia in general requires p=
atience and
my progress with anyone there is at a standstill.


Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this family!

San Francisco, Sunday, November 15, 2015: San Francisco's Own Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico #general

San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society

Topic:
San Francisco's Own Norton I, Emperor of the United States
and Protector of Mexico
Speaker: Emperor Norton (Joseph AMSTER)

Sunday, November 15, 2015
Rhoda Goldman Plaza
2180 Post Street, San Francisco 94115

Program begins 1:30 p.m.

A Jewish businessman originally >from England and South Africa, Joshua
Abraham Norton arrived in San Francisco in 1849 with $40,000, which
after some shrewd investing increased to $250,000 (about $3 million
today). After losing his fortune to a bad rice investment, Norton
disappeared, returning to San Francisco in 1859 and declaring himself
Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico. In any
other city, he would have been dismissed as a madman, but the people
of San Francisco embraced his reign.

Amster, a displaced journalist with an acting background, wanted to
create a walking tour with a twist, offering his patrons a unique
experience. "I decided early on that I wanted to do my tour in
character and researched the historical figures >from San Francisco's
past," says Amster. "The more I read about Emperor Norton, the more
fascinated I became with him." After completing his research,
Amster took on the character of Emperor Norton, complete with
uniform, beard, and plumed top hat.

Coffee and tea will be served. Meetings are free and everyone
interested is welcome to attend. For more information visit

Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

six Galician regional maps 1804~1919 on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

We've just posted to the Gesher Galicia Map Room six (!) historical
maps of Galicia, dating >from 1804 to 1919 and documenting the
evolution of the province >from several perspectives.

Liechtenstern Map of the Two Galicias 1804
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-liechtenstern-1804/
Reisser Map of East and West Galicia 1805
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-reisser-1805/
These first two maps were made during the brief life of West Galicia
as an Austrian province, before it was lost to the Duchy of Warsaw
and then to Congress Poland. West Galicia was a large territory which
began on the eastern outskirts of Warsaw and covered much of what
is today eastern Poland, including Lublin and Radom. If you had
family in this region around the turn of the 19th century, they were
part of New Galicia.

Marieni Map of Galicia & Lodomeria 1833
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-lodomeria-marieni-1833/
Created for an Italian atlas set, this map was adpated >from a
Viennese original and partly translated into Italian >from the
Polish- and German-language town and district names. In addition
to showing boundaries and the head towns of both political and
religious administrations, the partial translations result in some
interesting language mash-ups such as "Vecchio Miasto" and "Nuovo
Sandec".

Weiland Map of Galicia and Bukovina 1832
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-bukovina-weiland-1832/
Raffelsperger Map of Galicia and Bukovina 1846
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-bukovina-raffelsperger-1846/
European map-making in the first half of the 19th century focused
on geographic accuracy and clarity. These maps are excellent
examples of the art and science of cartography in Germany and
Austria in years of delicate political stability, before mid-century
European revolutions forced an internal review and adjustment of
imperial authority, and an expansion of autonomy in Galicia. Both of
these maps document the historical area and the population of
Galicia, at just under 5 million people of very mixed cultures.

Malopolska and Bukovina Map 1919
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-malopolska-1919/
World War I ripped Europe apart, and the reassembly was slow and
painful. This map by an unknown author describes the district
borders of "Little Poland" even while the ownership of former Galicia
was still in military and diplomatic dispute between Poland and
Ukraine. Although several international councils would eventually
award Galicia to Poland, it would not be long before an even larger
war would tear all of this apart again.
