Request for help finding information on Michael ABRAHAM, nephew of Hedwig and Alfred JULIUSBURGER (Holocaust victims). #germany

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Dear All,
Whilst searching for information on the JULIUSBURGER family, last
known residence, Holzmarkt Strasse 65, Berlin, I came across what
appears to be a photo of them on "The List of Deportation >from Berlin"
database section of the YAD VASHEM website,(search request;
JULIUSBURGER Hedwig: photo name; p39855). I asked the correspondant
there for more information and she told me that the photo had been
posted in 2006 by a man called Michael ABRAHAM. The correspondant
indicated to me that Mr ABRAHAM is, or perhaps was, the nephew of
Hedwig JULIUSBURGER, who was born Hedwig ABRAHAM, in Allenstein,
Eastern Prussia (now Olstyn, Poland) on 3 Steptember 1897. Hedwig's
husband, Alfred JULIUSBURGER, born in Breslau, (Now Wroclaw, Poland)
on 13 November 1892 was the son of Isidor and Martha JULIUSBURGER.
This means that I have a link to these people via other, living,
members of my family.
I have no other information on Michael ABRAHAM, unfortunately. As
ever, I would be extremely grateful for help in getting into contact
with Mr ABRAHAM, or his descendants.

Best regards, Alexander Watson, Genas, Near Lyon France

Re: ZOREK, Erna from Breslau #germany

Hello Mike,

there are at least two databases, which are easily accessible and
searchable which both give answers to the fate of the family ZOREK from
Breslau. I'm afraid the family has perished in the Shoah.

1. the online-memory-book for victims of the Persecution of Jews under
the National Socialist Tyranny in Germany (Federal Archives of Germany)
(also with an English website)
http://www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/directory.html.de

2. and the database of Yad Vashem.

Serghei Dailiuk - guest speaker at conference in Warsaw. #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

The conference in Warsaw ended, and I would like to write several more postings to elaborate some
good moments >from Poland.

I think it was a great success for inviting Serghei Daniliuk to join us and present at the conference.
Serghei presented two lectures and also offered translation (>from Romanian and Russian) consultation.

---- Jewish Shtetl in Moldova without Jews: How the Jewish Past can be remembered.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/conferences/2018/BessarabiaKaushany.pdf

Serghei lives in Republic of Moldova, in a place, which used to be a Jewish shteitl Kaushany
with two thousand Jews living there before the war. Currently THERE IS NO SIGN OR
MONUMENT or anything dedicated to Jews in that place. Serghei found out about Jews who
used to live in the shteitl >from our website and also KehilaLinks website for Kaushany.
Now, Serghei is our 'ambassador' to that town and also to the whole Moldova. He put up an
exhibit of the Holocaust in the local school, and also teachers school children of different
ages about history of their place, people living there, Holocaust. He also discovered places
where Jewish tombstones were buried after the cemetery was destroyed. One of the terrific
finding he did is that he found evidence that Jews lived in that place in 15-16 century. That
is something we did not know and it is tremendously important. Usually 18 or possible 17
century is the time the first Jewish communities appeared in Bessarabia/Moldova.

---- Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova: Current Status and Future Projects.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/conferences/2018/BessarabiaCemeteries.pdf

We hired a number of people to photograph tombstones at the cemeteries in Rybnitsa, Tiraspol,
Kishinev, Beltsy and also... Serghei who goes to ANY place in the region we will ask him to go.
He is working on these projects for many years, and is doing a great job. He worked already in
about 30-35 cemeteries, and we plan to continue working with him to cover ALL cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova. He also found/discovered a Jewish cemetery on one of his trips, we did
not know about, and photographed it. Recently he started to organize a group of local people
to do a clearing paths, cleaning of the cemeteries in order to have access to every tombstone.

Serghei offered help in translation >from Romanian and Russian, and will continue do this in the
future. You can post your cards or documents on ViewMate and also a message to our
discussion group, and if Romanian is there, Serghei will help.

If we need in the future, we may ask Serghei to go to some institution, archives, museums to
find some specific information for us.

We need more of local historians, researchers in the region to work on our projects. to help in
our research. There are areas where only local people can do the job.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments.

Re: bessarabia digest: August 12, 2018 #bessarabia

David,

Headstones usually was used for the roads, constructions, and sometimes were
buried outside town. This is what happened in Kaushany. You can look at
the slides, when Serghei Danilijuk, our guest at the conference, found a
number of broken stones in a nearby forest.

For the Kaushany shtetle one stone was put into local museum, another was
found in a yard near house, third ? in abandon church, and forth ? somewhere
else.
I think that with the help of local people, many stones could be found. The
bodies are most likely are still in the ground.

Re: An Excerpt from A Book #hungary

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear Amit,

A check of WorldCat using the words magyarorszagi symbolikus in the title search indicates this was an annual periodical or yearbook for Hungarian Freemasons. Â That suggests your great-great-uncle was a Freemason and that the book may have some information on him. Â The bibliographical record for this periodical is extremely confusing and individual year volumes are rarely cataloged so I can't tell if it's held by a library in WorldCat. Â I suggest contacting the Hungarian National Library, which should have a full run of this periodical.

Good luck in your research.

Yours,
