From privatbeamter to Branntwein #austria-czech

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow members of Austria-Czech,

I have followed with great interest the discussion of
"privatbeamter." Thanks to Celia's well-known persistence and the
contributions of many others, we have all learned a great deal of the
subtleties. I should point out that I found the term both in
meldezettel (residence records) and in annual address books (Lehmann)
used as one word or two. In the address books, the word is
abbreviated as Priv. Bmt. as if it were two words. So I am not sure
which usage predominated.

But, I have a new puzzle. My great grandmother's occupation
is listed as "Branntwein Berschl." There seems to be a centered dot
between the two words and the second word is clearly an abbreviation.
Branntwein means a fortified wine, spirit, or brandy. But, what does
that second abbreviation mean?

Once again, many thanks for your thoughts,

Tom Weiss

Just learned that there is a book >from 1936 which
lists alphabetically and geogrphically all the holders
of checking accounts (individuals and institutions)
with the PKO Bank.The title is:
Spis Wlascicieli Kont Czekowych W Pocztowej Kasie

I don't know whether the Library of Congress has a copy.
Found there my maternal grandfather's business address

Chanowitz, Bohemia? #austria-czech

rutabegatree@...
 

I today received a copy of a 1878 Hamburg manifest that gives my KOHN
gggg-grandparents' town of origin as Chanowitz or Hanowitz, Bohemia.
ShtetlSeeker gives a lot of possible alternatives for this town name, and
I don't know what options might be more correct than others.
I believe that Aaron might have been a brother of Herman Kohn, whose
family hailed >from Teresov, so possibly "Chanowitz" was somewhere
nearby to Teresov.

Can anyone help me out with any likely locations that I should look at?

Thanks!

Rabbi named Azriel and his wife Pesa from Ariogala #lithuania

Paul Gordon <flash@...>
 

I've been trying to track down the family of a Litvak rabbi named Azriel
(surname and patronymic unknown), who was married to Pesa (daughter of
Leyb and Chyene) of Ariogala in the mid-1800s. Pesa would likely have
been born in Ariogala in the 1820s-1840s. I know that Azriel died in
New York, probably in the late 1800s or early 1900s. I would guess that
he was living there at the time, and that he had brought his wife and
children with him. However, that is only conjecture.

I'd appreciate hearing >from any other Litvak researchers who have come
across a family meeting this description in their research.

With a little detective work, I've found a family that might be "my"
Azriel and Pesa.

First, I found an 1858 birth record in Ariogala for a baby born to
Azriel (son of Rubin) and Pesa. There was no surname listed. Because
Pesa's patronymic was not included in the record, I can't be sure if
this is "my" Azriel and Pesa. However, the baby's name was Chyene,
which was "my" Pesa's mother's name.

I next searched the Russian Revision and Family Lists for a family
headed by an Azriel (son of Rubin), a wife Pesa, and a daughter Chyene
born around 1858. I found just such a family in the 1874 Family List
for Kedainiai, with the surname VOLPERT. The daughter was named Chyene
Rifka instead of just Chyene, but that was the only difference.

I contacted other VOLPERT / Kedainiai researchers listed on the JGFF,
but I found no one connected to this family.

If anyone knows anything about this VOLPERT family, please contact me.

Rosenthal's book about the Pogroms #ukraine

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

I hope I am not repeating something that was posted. A friend of mine just
found one volulme of a series by Eliezer David Rosental in 1927 in Hebrew
called the Scroll of the Massacre.
This is volume two - covering places whose names start with "gimmel" through
"zion".
Beside the descriptions there are lists of names of those murdered and their
age.
I checked the library catalogue for the institutions of higher learning here
in Israel.
Volune one can be found in the David Yellin College, which I believe is in
Jerusalem. It covers letter "aleph" and "beit".
There is one in the Levinsky College outside of Tel-Aviv but it doesn't say
which volume.
There is another institution YDL that might have more volumes. There is no
link to that specific library. It states that the volumes were printed
between 1927-1929.
At the National Library in Jerusalem - there are the first three volumes.
In library BBR - they have volumes through 1931. But it seems that the links
to the individual libraries aren't working, so I can figure out which
institution this is.
I have no way of telling how many volumes there are at this point.
I think this would be a wonderful project for the Ukraine SIG, but I myself
can not undertake it at the present.
If the SIG is interested in undertaking transliterating and posting these
lists, I will gladly scan the lists >from the volume I have.

Reunion of First Cousins After 67 Years #galicia

Dear Genners and Siggers,
My late father Leon Rosner(1903-1999) >from Krakow lost
all his siblings(and their offspring)during WW2: a
brother and 4 sisters. He barely spoke about them and
we never knew their given names or married names.
In June 2004 I found on JRI-PL names of 2 Rosner
persons(Abraham and Hanna) >from Krakow whose parents
had the same given names as my grandparents.I assumed
that they were my father's siblings.It gave the
sister's married name and I rather quickly found out
that she had a son, Reuven Orschutzer(b.1925 in
Krakow) who survived and lives in Israel.
Last December I checked the Yad Vashem PoTs which went
on the Internet .There were 355 pages of "Rosner and
Krakow".On page 324 I got a testimony which was filled
in the US in 1980 by Rudolph(Reuven) Rosner(b. 1920 in
Berlin and returned with his parents to Krakow in
1933).He is the son of Abraham.With the help of the
Genners I found him in Florida.
Rudy Rosner came today to Jerusalem and I organized a
reunion between him and our other first cousin.They
have not seen each other since 1938!!!! and were sure
that the other perished as well(I was born in 1948
so of course they had no idea about my existence).
The Mayor of Jerusalem, Uri Polanski,who greeted last
year's IAJGS Conference was present at the reunion.
After a year of search I have 2 first cousins!!!
I'll continue the search for the other members of my
father's family.
It would not have been possible without the Internet.

Pzremysl / Sanok massacres September 1939 #galicia

Mark Salik <mark.salik@...>
 

Shalom,



I am looking for information about the massacres that took place in Przemysl
and Sanok areas in September 1939 at the start of the Nazi occupation. My
father's brother, Mendel Salik, was one of a group of about 25 Jews >from
Sanok that was killed near Ustrzyki Dolne. However, other massacres took
place in the Przemysl region in which an estimated 600 Jews were murdered. I
have very little information about these massacres. They are mentioned at
the following links but I would very much like to find out more and to know
if the different execution sites are recorded somewhere.

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Przemysl/murdered.shtml

http://www.deathcamps.org/occupation/przemysl%20ghetto.html



My father, David Salik, was sent >from Sanok to the western Polish front in
the very first days of September 1939, aged 25 years old. The Polish defence
was a disaster with cavalry fighting tanks and they were quickly made
prisoner. Many escaped quickly and my father was able to make his way back
to his home town Sanok which had been occupied by the Germans in the
meantime.

His parents were orthodox Jews and his father had suffered an anti-Semitic
attack. He was wearing a headscarf to cover where his beard had been cut
off. My father learned that his brother Mendel, 4 years his younger, had
been called up to join the army some days after he had left. It seems that a
radio announcement was made for the young men to go to a certain destination
but together with a group of 25 Jews >from Sanok he was killed near Ustrzyki
Dolne (at the time under German occupation but to be left to the Russians
some days later), on a small hill according to my father. My father has
always said that the massacre was conducted by Ukrainians but it would seem
to me that it was Nazi organised though undoubtedly with active Ukrainian
participation. My father says that this massacre was reported in the local
newspaper although they mistakenly gave his name. His parents were therefore
again grieved to learn that it was Mendel that had been killed.

Because of the obvious danger to their lives, his parents arranged for David
to be smuggled across the San river to Lesko, under Russian control, to stay
with other family members. He was able to travel to Ustrzyki Dolne where
makeshift burial graves were being guarded by an orthodox Jew. My father was
able to identify some garments including a sweater >from his brother. He was
later also able to travel to Przemysl to visit other family before returning
to Lesko. His stay in Lesko was terminated early in 1940 I think when the
"Polish refugees" were transported to work camps in Siberia. >from there,
some years later, my father was able to join a Polish regiment of the
British army and fought in 1944 in the Battle of Arnhem.



David Salik returned to visit his home town in 1989 and also went to
Ustrzyki Dolne to look for his brother's grave. He found nothing. However, I
recently found out through Jewish Gen burial database that Mendel Salik has
a grave in Przemysl cemetery and I was able to visit in May 2005
(http://perso.wanadoo.fr/mark-ds/poland/przemyslcem). The identified victims
of different massacres had been transferred to Przemysl cemetery in the
1950's and the memorial to the September 1939 massacres has recently been
restored by Frederic Salzburg of the Poland Jewish Cemeteries Restoration
Project. The memorial plaque reads:



ON September 17, 18 and 19 in the year 1939, barbarian nazis murdered 102
jews who are resting here. may they be at peace and their names forever
honored.

NB This list seems to have been transcribed with somewhat different spelling
from those on the original plaques: for example "Majer Beer", "Jozef Arem".
Also there are original plaques which are not listed on the new memorial
plaque: for example "Samuel M. Lowenta" died 7.9.39, "Leib Kastner", died
7.9.39, perhaps because they relate to massacres at a different date.

NB This list seems to have been transcribed with somewhat different spelling
from those on the original plaques: for example "Majer Beer", "Jozef Arem".
Also there are original plaques which are not listed on the new memorial
plaque: for example "Samuel M. Lowenta" died 7.9.39, "Leib Kastner", died
7.9.39, perhaps because they relate to massacres at a different date.


Re: Naming a newborn after a sibling who died earlier #galicia

Dear Genners and Galicianers,
I would like to thank all you who responded either
privately or via the different lists to my query. I
got more than 20 answers and I believe that it is my
humble duty to summarize them for the sake of all of
us.The Jewishgen archives contain some references to
this issue but the responsa I got are more focused.
Almost all those who responded were acquainted with
this phenomenon/practice and came across it,however
they differ in their iterpretation.
Few made the comment that because of the bad fortune
people would refrain >from renaming a newborn after a
sibling who died earlier.
However, the majority of those who responded made the
comment that traditionally a newborn was named after a
relative who passed away. It was a Mitzvah to do it.
If a baby who carried this name died,they would name
the next one after the same relative,sometimes addind
an additional name or a "kinui".
Whatever the reasoning,the net result is that one
finds in the same household successive children with
the same given name!!! More important,it is not a
mistake of the registering clerk and it should not
cofuse us.
I hope it helps.
