JewishGen.org and The Museum of the Jewish People Announce A Strategic Partnership #austria-czech

Groll, Avraham
 

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / NEW YORK, NY -- JewishGen.org and The Museum of the
Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot announced a strategic partnership today,
bringing together two of the Jewish world's most iconic names for
innovation in advancing online genealogy and identity exploration.
The partnership envisions the that the family tree collections held by
both parties, accounting for nearly 20,000 trees in total, will be
completely accessible to visitors of both JewishGen.org and The Museum
of the Jewish People. Beginning in the late Fall 2018, researchers will
be provided with unprecedented access to vital Jewish family history
information that is available in no other facility. This new search
platform will dramatically increase the likelihood that researchers will
find information they are seeking.

Avraham Groll, Director of JewishGen.org, stated, "JewishGen is committed
to doing everything we can to provide the highest quality of access to
records, information, and tools that researchers can utilize in their
quest to connect with relatives, discover their unique family history,
and understand what it means to be part of the Jewish people. Our new
partnership with The Museum of the Jewish People will help us achieve
this goal, by eliminating the need to spend time or financial resources
searching multiple facilities. For JewishGen, connecting with the Museum
of the Jewish People comes during a stage of significant growth >from both
an archival and technological perspective, and as we set ambitious
strategic priorities for the years to come, I believe that this new
relationship will herald continued opportunities for our organizations to
collaborate on behalf of the entirety of the Jewish people."

"Too often we see organizations cajoling for space and prominence, when
they should be aligning. The treasures that JewishGen and the Museum of
the Jewish People have each built up over the decades are invaluable and
irreplaceable, and it’s a privilege to be able to re-make that
connection, through technology and partnership building," said Dan Tadmor,
CEO of The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot.

For the Museum, connecting its Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center
with JewishGen comes during the final development stages of its new "Open
Databases Project," due for launch later this year. The system will
integrate each of the Museum’s five separate databases together with
outside archives >from partners such as JewishGen, allowing users to
curate their own personalized library of Jewish life, drawing on
genealogy, community, photography, music and film.

What's more, through an open API and an enhanced data upload function,
both developers and personal users can further enrich the archives at any
point, by uploading their own institutional, personal and family content,
creating a shared, online repository for centuries of Jewish life and
culture.

Seeking Descendant of Amalie GRONNER #austria-czech

yo_sam2077@...
 

I have a copy of a death announcement for Amalie GRONNER, nee Safarik, who
died 16 June, 1957. She predeceased her husband, my great-uncle Leopold GRONNER.
Among survivors listed were her daughter Gertrude Thueringer, son-in-law Ernst
Thueringer, and grandson Gerhard GRONNER.

Assuming that Gehard GRONNER may still be alive, does anyone know how I could
track him down?

I live in the USA.

Thank you, Amnon GRONNER

Reflecting On The Work Of JewishGen #austria-czech

Groll, Avraham
 

04/09/2018
24 Nissan 5778

Dear JewishGen Family,

This week presents meaningful opportunities to reflect on the significance
of JewishGen's purpose, work, and values.

Today marks 50 years since the funeral of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
the tireless champion for human rights. On December 11, 1966, Dr. King
delivered a powerful speech in support of the oppressed Jews of the Soviet
Union. His message bears remembering:
"... [Jews in the Soviet Union] may not be physically murdered as they were
in Nazi Germany, [but] they are facing every day a kind of spiritual and
cultural genocide. Individual Jews may be in the main physically and
economically secure in Russia, but the absence of opportunity to associate
as Jews in the enjoyment of Jewish culture and religious experience becomes
a severe limitation upon the individual.

"These deprivations are a part of a person's emotional and intellectual
life. They determine whether he is fulfilled as a human being ... When you
are written out of history as a people, when you are given no choice but to
accept the majority culture, you are denied an aspect of your own identity
... Ultimately, you suffer a corrosion of your self-understanding and your
self-respect."

(The entire speech can be read here: https://tinyurl.com/y964kncp)
[original URL: http://www.beliefnet.com/news/2000/01/negroes-can-well-understand-king-in-his-own-words.aspx#6iMcFUzK1A4XMBYW.99]

As you know, Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) begins at nightfall on
Wednesday evening, April 11. In the State of Israel (which will soon
celebrate its 70th birthday), a siren will be blown at nightfall and then
again the next morning -- uniting men, women and children in silent
reflection of the catastrophe which ended less than 75 years ago.

Here in NYC, the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the
Holocaust (of which JewishGen.org is an affiliate) hosts a series of
commemorations, and provides multiple opportunities for people of all ages,
from all walks of life, to internalize the loss, and to take meaningful
steps to preserve our collective Jewish history and legacy for the future.

Yesterday, nearly 3,000 people attended the Museum's Annual Gathering of
Remembrance. Speaking to a diverse audience, which included a large number
of Holocaust Survivors, Museum President & CEO Mr. Michael Glickman
articulated not only the reason for establishing the Museum, but also what
motivates its continued purpose. He stated, in part:
"Commemorations like the Annual Gathering of Remembrance are powerful
because they demand our presence, our attention, and most of all, our
togetherness. They challenge us to think of how we carry not only our
personal, individual histories, but also the history of our people. The
weight of this history can feel like a burden, but when the burden is
shared, it becomes an important lesson in what we mean to each other ...
When a survivor tells her story, she reasserts the very humanity and
dignity that the Nazis attempted to destroy."
(The entire speech can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/263766364)

These thoughts and sentiments motivate the staff and volunteers at
JewishGen on a daily basis. We take heed of Dr. King's words so many
decades ago, and of Mr. Glickman's just yesterday. We are not content
merely connecting researchers with ancestral information -- our sacred
work revolves around our ability to transmit the legacy of the Jewish
people in a way that will ensure its preservation for future generations.

As we continue to participate in Holocaust Commemorative programming, I
thank you for being part of the JewishGen.org family, and for supporting
our critical work.

This is a newly released card >from the Stutthof Concentration Camp.
I'm interested in knowing what the following words mean. They are:
Stand; Wehnort; durch and in KL. Also, I would appreciate a translation
of what is written after Wehnort, Religion, and durch. Knowing a small
bit of German I was able to figure out some of the more obvious.
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.
