Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland #general

Lande
 

The International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen has put on its public
website an alphabetical index to its holdings of Reichsvereinigung der Juden
in Deutschland (RJD) registration cards. This includes images of each card.
Go to https://digitalcollections.its-arolsen.org/01020401.

The RJD was established in 1939 as a compulsory Gestapo supervised
surveillance tool to register all Jews resident in Germany. Up to now
access to the these cards held at ITS was only available at the USHMM, Yad
Vashem and the Bundesarchiv, so this is a major step forward. In addition
to name, each card includes such valuable information as date and place of
birth, maiden name, address and, often, names of other family members. In
most cases the fate of each individual is given, e.g. deported, emigrated,
or died within Germany.

This database can only be searched by family name, so that if you wish to
search by maiden name or place of birth you may want to go to the Steve
Morse website, under Holocaust Roof Organization, where a partial but
growing list of names appears and where broader searches are possible.

Celia Male #austria-czech

Hello Everyone - I was saddened to read that we have lost a fine member of our SIG.
I had written the following note to Simon Male (not knowing he is Celia's son):

Hello Simon Male,

I was sorry to read that Celia had died. She was one of my favorite contributors
to the Austria/Czech SIG. Although I had never met her, she was personal and
generous in her contributions and amazingly knowledgeable. I do appreciate to
this day her cheerful helpfulness and will remember her fondly.

May her memory serve as a blessing.
Amira Kohn Trattner

Simon wrote back that he is so happy to know that his mother was so helpful to me
and to other members of the SIG.

I want to add my condolences to Celia's family. She was an amazing
researcher and helped me massively in the early days of my family history
research. I first came across her postings in this SIG and later was able to
meet her in London on a visit there many years ago. I had allowed an hour to
talk to her and another UK researcher and we met at a beautiful gallery in a
stunning stone building with a large courtyard in London which housed the
Royal Chemistry Society and a few others. I've forgotten its name but I was
so thrilled as I'd studied chemistry at Sydney university and in my studies
came across many famous chemists who'd been members of that important
organisation.
Celia and I really got on well and I ended up abandoning my plans to visit
the gallery after meeting her. We must have talked for more than three hours
and it was a wonderful opportunity to hear >from her about her research and
her enormous knowledge of the field.
I think it was not long after that she had her stroke and so stopped posting
and we lost contact.
Is there some way our SIG could honour her? I think she really deserves to
be remembered.

(Germany) Nazi-Looted Art In Private Collections--New Law Helps Fund Efforts To Return to Original Owners #germany

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Trying to return Nazi-stolen art to the families of the original owners has
been traditionally funded for German museums and libraries and not private
individuals and collectors.

The German government announced it will begin subsidizing the private
collectors' attempts to return the art to the families of the original
owners. The government is funding this at 3.4
Euros, about $3.6 million USD.

The fund will help the current generation of owners find out how the
art objects came into their family. Under German law the descendants
of the original Jewish owners must rely on the good will of the private
collectors. Museums, however are bound by international principles
which require them to reach "just and fair solutions." There are
also statute of limitations that some current holders of stolen art rely
upon to prevent return of the stolen Nazi-era artworks.

The German Lost Art Foundation reviews applications >from art owners seeking
assistance and grants awards as high as $320,000. What precipitated the
German government to act now was the 2013 discovery of the art horde in
Cornelius Gurlitt's Munich apartment -that was amassed by a Nazi era
dealer- Gurlitt's father.
Today's generation is finding some family artwork was looted by the
previous generation and want to return it to the families of the original
owners. To read more about this see:

SITE CITE - Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland -1939 German Jewish registration cards on line #germany

Lande
 

The International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen has put on its public
website an alphabetical index to its holdings of Reichsvereingung der Juden
in Deutschland (RJD) registration cards. This even includes images of each
card. Go to:

https://digitalcollections.its-arolsen.org/01020401

The RJD was established in 1939 and all Jews resident in Germany were
required to register - though many avoided doing so.

Up to now access to these cards had only been available at the USHMM,
Yad Vashem and at the Bundesarchiv, so this is a very useful step forward.

In addition to name, each card often contains valuable information such
as date and place of birth, maiden name, address and even the names of
other family names. In most cases the fate of each individual is given,
e,g. deported, emigrated, died within Germany.

The database can only be searched by family name, so if you wish to search
by place of birth or maiden name you may wish to go to Steve Morse's website
under Holocaust Roof Organization where a partial but growing list of RJD
names appears and where such searches are possible.
