I believe that 1917 was the first opportunity that Jews had to become officers

also the first time that they were allowed entrance into the military academies.
Actually, Joseph Trumpeldor, the hero of Tel Hai, received his St. George order
awarded for his bravery in Russo-Japan war and officer commission in 1906.

In a year 1917 with abdication of Nicolas II, Russian Empire has ceased to exist,
and Jew in a new Russia could become a supreme commander of the Red Army, as Lev
Trotsky did.

New Holocaust-period records on the All Galicia Database #general

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition to the All Galicia
Database of two important sets of Holocaust records. This database is
free and available to all, at: http://search.geshergalicia.org

1. Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies. Rzeszow State
Archive, Fond 881, Sygn. 1 (791 records)
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe. The records are in a
single file, divided into volumes with town names, which appear to
refer to the places where the testimonies were gathered. The people
named in the records, though, came >from a wide range of localities in
the Debica area. Each testimony is signed by two witnesses.

In indexing these records, we have extracted the following information:
Names of person, names of parents, town of origin, date of testimony
(where given), reported date of death, reported place of death,
reported cause of death, and the names (where the signatures are
legible) of the two people signing the form of testimony.

The reported places of death include:
Bagienica (near Dabrowa), Baranowa, Belzec, Biala Podlaska, Biecz,
Biesiadka, Bochnia, Borki, Borki Nizinskie, Borowa, Brzezany,
Brzostek, Chorzelow, Chrzastow, Czermin, Dabrowa, Debica, Deborzyn,
Debowa (near Jodlowa), Dubienka, Dukla, Dulabka, Dulcza, Frysztak,
Gebiczyn, Gliwice, Golce, Gorlice, Gorzejowa, Grabiny, Halbow, Horbow,
Hrubieszow, Janow, Jarocin, Jaslo, Jastrzebia, Jawiszow, Jaworze,
Jaworze Gorne, Jazwiny, Jedlicze, Jodlowa, Kamienica, Kamionka
Strumilowa, Kolaczyce, Kozlow (near Debica), Krajowice (Jaslo),
Krakow, Krakow-Plaszow, Krzeszow, Lubaczow, Lubaczowa, Lwow, Lysakow,
Majdanek, Miedzyrzec, Mielec, Nadworna, Nagoszyn, Nizna Laka,
Oleszyce, Olpiny, Opacionka, Oswiecim [Auschwitz], Padew, Parkosz,
Pilznionka, Pilzno, Plaszow, Podborze, Podleszany, Polaniec, Przeclaw,
Przeczyca (Jodlowa), Pustkow, Radomysl Wielke, Rawa Ruska, Ropczyce,

Tarnobrzeg, Tarnow, Ulanow, Wiewiorka, Wlodawa, Wojslaw, Wola Lubecka,
Wolka Tanewska, Zagorze, Zaklikow, and Zdziary.

2. Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943 (133 records)
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that
Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation., sometimes in duplicate or triplicate. The people
named include doctors, dentists, dental technicians, nurses, midwives,
radiologists, cosmeticians, medical students and others.

All these forms were completed in eastern Galician towns. Yad Vashem
holds a set of 2,001 questionnaires of the same type, also from
eastern Galicia, which were indexed for JewishGen some ten years ago
and are described and can be searched on JewishGen's web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/holocaust/0132_polish_medical_questionnaires.html
(MODERATOR: http://tinyurl.com/jy9bfza )

The records Gesher Galicia has now transcribed consist of 121
questionnaires held in the Przemysl State Archive (Fond 154, IGW102,
Sygn. 31-33) and 12 questionnaires >from AGAD, Warsaw (Fond 424, Sygn.
9, 13, 17, 64, 97 and 179).

Gesher Galicia has fully indexed these records, extracting the
following information:
Names of person, date and place of birth, place of residence and
street address, marital status, occupation, institution and town of
practice, spouse's name and date of birth, children's names and
ages/dates of birth, names of grandparents [not the parents], date of
professional examination, and period and place of studies.

The places of birth include:
Bajkowce, Biala (Silesia), Bolechow, Brody, Brzezany, Brzozow,
Buczacz, Budzanow, Czortkow, Czortkow-Wygnanka, Czyszki, Dabrowice,
Dawidow, Dolina, Drohobycz, Graz, Grzymalow, Jaroslaw, Jezierna,
Kalisz, Kalusz, Kolonice, Korzec, Kozowa, Krakow, Krystynopol,
Lezajsk, Lodz, Lwow, Mielec, Mogilany, Monasterzec, Nadworna, Neumarkt
(Nowy Targ), Nosow, Piotrkow, Podhajce, Podwoloczyska, Przemysl,
Rohatyn, Rozniatow, Rzeszow, Sanok, Serwery, Sieniawa, Skalat,

Warsaw, Wojnilow, Wygnanka, Zakliczyn, Zalanow, Zalozce, Zamosc,

New 1862 Medical Spas Map of Galicia and Bukovina #galicia

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

Feel you could use a little health boost and relaxation? Sometimes
your ancestors felt the same way, and we're here to help: we've just
posted an 1862 map of medical spas in Galicia and Bukovina on the
Gesher Galicia Map Room:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/special/galicia-medical-spas-1862/

With well over a hundred spa locations categorized eight ways based
on plants, salts and other minerals, oils, and hot springs, there's
plenty to choose from. A good first choice would be Iwonicz-Zdroj,
one of the oldest spas in the region and secluded in the Beskid Niski
hills; Virtual Shtetl calls it "the favorite Jewish spa":
http://bit.ly/29AYhOY

Gesher Galicia purchased this interesting map at auction, then
digitized and assembled it for you >from membership dues and
general fund donations. Many of you had family who went to one or
more of these spas for holidays or treatment; now you can learn more
about them!

To commemorate his 92nd Birthday last Friday, Harold Pollins has
provided JCR-UK with yet a further superbly researched and annotated
article, this time on the "Jews of Dewsbury" (which can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/dewsbury/Jews_of_Dewsbury.htm)

Harold has also considerably expanded his extracts of press reports
relating to the Dewsbury Jewish Community. These can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/dewsbury/jc.htm.
The document now contains nearly 150 separate press extracts >from 1885 to 2005.
JCR-UK now includes extracts of press reports for over 70 different
communities, throughout the UK, all extracted and compiled by Harold.

Another extremely interesting article recently provided by Harold and
posted to JCR-UK is "Herbert Martin James Loewe in Oxford" (which can
be viewed at http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/oxford_articles/Loewe_in_Oxford.htm),
which is part of his Oxford series of articles and which was first
published in the Jewish Journal of Sociology.

We wish Harold a (slightly belated) very happy birthday and again
thank Harold for all his contributions to JCR-UK over the years. We
look forward to receiving many more articles >from him.

Do you have any data or material on any Jewish community or
congregation, past or present, anywhere in the British Isles? These
may take the form of, for example, corrections or updates to existing
material; photographs; articles and histories; copies of press
reports; personal reminisces; copies of brochures or other communal
publications or pamphlets, useful links or publications; lists of
ministers, communal officers or members. Almost anything goes that may
be of interest to present day or future researchers. If you have items
of this nature that you would like to see preserved for posterity on
the JCR-UK website, please contacts me at the email below.
