For a civil record less than 100 years old, can only be obtained >from the local

Or by applying to the Romanian embassy in Tel- Aviv.
But not today as it is Romanian national day, try tomorrow.

Forced labour in Reichenbach factory #hungary

gluckpast@...
 

Greetings >from England!

Prompted by Peter Absolon's posting on Markkleeberg, I should be
extremely grateful if anyone can point me towards any information
that's available on the Reichenbach factory, where I believe small
aircraft parts may have been made.

A group of fifty girls and young women >from Auschwitz, selected for
their aptitude in handling intricate components, were taken to
Reichenbach and worked there for some time before the factory was
destroyed by bombing and they were marched away, with the survivors
eventually reaching Hamburg.

With grateful thanks,

(Czech Republic) Reassembling a Lost Jewish Cemetery #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Prostejov, Czech Republic, is the location where the lost Jewish graveyard
with 2,000 tombstones were desecrated over 70 years ago and is now being
reassembled. Prostejov was home to one of the most significant Jewish
communities in Moravia. Famous residents included Rabbi Zvi Horowitz,
philosopher Edmund Husserl and author Stefen Zweig. The cemetery was used by
the local Jewish community >from 1801 to the beginning of the 20th century.
There were 1,442 local Jews in the town at the time they were taken to
Terezin concentration camp. Only 200 of the town's residents survived the
Shoah. Today less than a dozen Jews live in Prostejov.

The project started in July 2015 by publishing an announcement in the City
Hall newspaper. Responses told them where the tombstones could be found. A
small team of researchers, led by Tomas Jelinek, have been working to
reassemble the cemetery that was destroyed in World War ll. Tombstones are
being found at the entrance of a hen house, used as pavement for streets,
part of construction materials and more. Today, the cemetery is a public
park where people walk their dogs. Preserved plans of the cemetery including
inscriptions stored at the Prague Jewish Museum makes it possible to
identify to whom the found headstones belong.

Danzig Database added to JewishGen Germany and Poland Databases #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am very pleased to announce that a new database of Jewish
genealogical records >from Danzig/Gdansk has been added to both the
JewishGen Germany and Poland Databases. For details of the current
contents and special ways to search, please read the introduction at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/germany/danzig.htm. Many more
records will be added to the Danzig Database in the future based on
the work of the JewishGen Danzig/Gdansk SIG; some are nearly ready to
be added pending additional proofreading.

Briefly, the Danzig Database currently contains 17th-20th century data
including: births >from Danzig 1931-1939, Altschottland 1838-1846,
Mattenbuden 1832-1846, Weinberg 1839-1847; marriages >from Mattenbuden
1832-1846, Weinberg 1837-1847; deaths >from Mattenbuden 1832-1846;
memorbuch >from Breitgasse 1821-1878; membership lists >from Mattenbuden
1832 or 1833, Weinberg 1817-1881; businessmen >from Danzig 1687-1763;
inscriptions on communal and personal objects >from Danzig,
Altschottland, Mattenbuden, and Weinberg 1697-1935; name index from
Erwin Lichtenstein's "Die Juden der Freien Stadt Danzig unter der
Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus."

Some of this information was already on our SIG website and has been
added to the database so everything can be searched in one place.
Some entries in the database refer to additional information on the
website.

Among the records due to be added next are births >from Danzig
1905-1931 and late 18th/early 19th century censuses.

Separate >from the Danzig Database, researchers might also be
interested in a chart summarizing the online and offline locations of
Jewish vital records >from Danzig, by type and year, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/records-chart.php. For non-vital
records (e.g., surname adoption list) and other relevant resources,
see also: http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/resources.php.

The Danzig Database exists because of the cooperation of the Central
Archives for the History of the Jewish People, the Family History
Library, the Jewish Museum, and the Leo Baeck Institute (Jerusalem);
the volunteer efforts of Barbara Algaze, Tamar Amit, Angelika Boening,
Logan Kleinwaks, Zeeva Levy, and Roni Pelled; the support of Barbara
Algaze, Ralph Chayen, Mark Kalisch, Logan Kleinwaks, Gerard Salomon,
Senta Simon, and Rose Losch Speiser; and the dedication of the current
and former JewishGen team, including Warren Blatt, Joyce Field, Susan
E. King, Michael Tobias, and Avraham Groll.

Thanks to all, happy searching, and stay tuned for more announcements soon,
