SCHWARZSCHILD #general

Genealicej@...
 

I am looking for the SCHWARZSCHILD family contained in the book Juden
in Hochheim by Franz LUSCHBERGER published in 1988.

The SCHWARZSCHILD family lived in Massenheim, part of Hochheim, near
Frankfurt am Main.

Unfortunately, because of gaps in the records, I do not know what the
connection is between Moses SCHWARZSCHILD, the husband of my great
grandfather's sister, Mina STERN, and Gustav, Julius and Ludwig
SCHWARZSCHILD, a generation following them.

Moses, son of Gumbrich and Feilchen KEHRMANN, was born on March 7 1835
and died in 1921. His brothers were Samuel born on February 21 1847,
Manuel born on May 2 1851, Adolf born on September 28 1859 and Abraham
born on July 24 1862.

Their father, Gumbrich was the son of Moses Mendel SCHWARZSCHILD who
apparently received a "letter of safe conduct" for Massenheim in 1791.
I don't know if the letter came >from Frankfurt. Feilchen KEHRMANN,
his wife, died in Massenheim on January 25 1836.

Mina STERN >from Heppenheim an der Bergstrasse married his eldest son
the butcher Moses in 1876. Mina's father, Feist, >from Heppenheim was
also a master butcher.

Gustav, Julius and Ludwig all fought in the First World War. Gustav,
born in 1883, won an Iron Cross. Julius, born in 1888, died during the
war a hero. And Ludwig born 1895 was the only Jewish U-boat commander
in the German army.

Gustav married Julianne LOEWENSTEIN >from Nordenstadt. They had a son
Kurt born in 1914 and a daughter Alma in 1918. They took over as owners
of Moses SCHWARZSCHILD's butcher's shop in 1920.

I only have one other possible clue, although it may prove to be nothing.
In the late 19th century there was a large meat packing firm called
SCHWARZSCHILD and SULZBERGER which had a huge plant in Kansas City,
Missouri. The name was later changed to S&S and then it was taken over
by WILSON & Co.

Apparently the SCHWARSCHILD, Joseph, disappeared off the scene in 1902.

I would be very grateful if anyone has any information on this
SCHWARZSCHILD family.

American Jewish Historical Society has some of the archives for the
Baron Hirsch Foundation.

He also funded a colony in the southern most part of Brazil. I have
an index of some of the families who were brought over to start a

My great-grandfather was buried in a section run by the Baron Hirsch
organization in New York. Is there anyway to locate records of those
that he helped....especially like where some of these people actually
originated from. In all the records that we've obtained so far, they
only say the empire of Russia as point of origin.

Also, I remember seeing a lot of turn of the century photos in a book,
I can't remember the name, of students that attended a school or schools
that he opened for the emigrants.

DUBETSKY, NAJMAN, NAJMARK families of Kobrin #belarus

Martin Miller <millerm@...>
 

Those of you with Kobrin connections and web access please have a look
at a photo on my web site at http://web.syr.edu/~millerm/zadiebw.jpg.

This picture was taken during my grandfather's visit to Kobrin in 1932.
His name was Osher DUBETSKY, however in the US he was known as Sam DUBIN.
His mother was Sarah Rifka GOLUBOVITCH. Two sisters remained in Kobrin
with their husbands.

My grandfather is in the center of the picture with his mother to the
right.

At the left is his sister Pesha Chaya NAJMAN and her husband, whose
first name is not known. At the right is sister Maram Itke NAJMARK
and her husband Yankel. There are five children in the family group. The two boys in the window were neighbors. Both sisters were pregnant at the time the picture was taken. One had twins. So there were at least eight children between the two, who were my mother's first cousins.

No one in the family knows the names of these children. All are
presumed to have perished in the Holocaust. I am hoping that someone
will recognize one or more of the folks in the picture. Or does anyone
know a former resident of Kobrin that could identify them?
