Orla Synagogue #poland

<< I saw the majestic Orla synagogue and Tomy shared with me a
copy of the videotape of the inside. We were not able to get
inside at the time, and the windows are all boarded up, though I
understand they have been preserved at a separate location. I
would be particularly interested in anything you can find out about
the possibility of restoration efforts and/or historical use of this
synagogue. >>

Restoration of the Orla synagogue -- perhaps the most striking and
central building in Orla -- has been continuing. A new fence and paving
stones were completed in the last 5 years. Restoration of the Magen
David front window was completed subsequent to my visit in 2003. Next
steps are to restore the interior and to open the building for cultural
uses. A current photo is accessible through the Orla link on the Bielsk
Powiat (County) website: www.powiatbielski.pl. The website does mention
Jewish heritage in the narrative for the Town
of Bielsk, Orla and Bransk.

KOENIGSBUCH-Kindertransport-a Breakthrough #germany

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
In 2003 I became aware that my late grandfather Ascher
KOENIGSBUCH >from Brzesko(Galicia) and Krakow had a 2nd
or 3rd cousin in Hamburg whose name was Aron / Adolf
KOENIGSBUCH. At a later stage I learned that he had 2
sons who were on the Kindertransport.
With the help of the Association of Jewish Refugees in
London I managed to get their given names,birth
dates,dates of arrival to the UK and last address in
Birmingham in 1948.Due to privacy concerns they could
not disclose more though they indicated that in any
case they would not have much more than that.
The PRO provided some details about their
naturalization and Military Service and the State
Archive in Hamburg managed to track them down until
1962 in Toronto and New Jersey,including an indication
about a name change.However the 2 brothers were not
members of the Kindertransport Association and did not
participate in the 2 reunions in 1989 and 1999.
I knocked on every possible door during the last 3
years,left messages on every posible list and SIG, in
Rootsweb and others,but in vain. They left no trace.
Until last week!!I was in Doha, Qatar out of all places
where I got an email >from a young student in
Ontario, Canada. Her mother went on the Web and saw
that I am looking for them.
One of the brothers passed away a few years ago. The
other one is at the moment, for the first time since
1939, on a visit to Hamburg!!!
I am waiting for his return to close the cycle.

The moral-DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!

Now I am going to write a book about the KOENIGSBUCH saga.
And MANY MANY thanks to all of you fellow Siggers and
Genners who were on my side when I went for the hunt
to discover the remnants of the KOENIGSBUCH clan.

Moderator: Please feel free to edit as you find appropriate

The responses I have received are incredible! People are so very helpful
and have already given me lots of information I did not have. I thank each
and everyone of you for your assistance. I will encourage others to join
the SIG as well.

I was somewhat scared to post as I know very little about the Jewish faith
or that side of the HILB family. I don't ever want to say something that
offends someone, so if I do please correct me.

I recently took a Jewish Genealogy class at a commercial genealogy internet
site and the teachers there were the ones to explain the various SIGS to the
class and encourage us to post. I am so glad they pushed me to post and ask
for help as like I said it is incredible to me the amount of support I have
received in just 48 hours. I also want to thank Mr. Lowens for taking his time
to be the Moderator as this has to be a very time consuming, but rewarding job.

I will be taking another class >from the same teachers ( Schelly Talalay Dardashti
& Micha Reiseland ) and will encourage them to continue to direct their students
to JewishGen and the SIGS. [Moderator note: Schelly and Micha are friends of
JewishGen and well known to many of us. The courses they offer are for fee and
are run by a commercial genealogy company. For that reason we are limited in
how much we can write about them in JewishGen discussion groups like this one.]

Please keep that information coming and if I can help someone else, please
let me know. Sincerely,

Zayde's Birthplace: Krenzburg? #general

the Jews who came >from Dankere. He departed for the United States from
Hamburg, Germany.

His possible birthplace is listed as Krenzburg. I would appreciate
if anyone can tell where Krenzburg was located.

I have no doubt that the place of origin was Kreuzburg now called Krustpils
in Latvia. This city developed >from an very old fortification at the river
Duena (ue is an equivalent of the German sound u with two dots on it called
"u Umlaut") now Daugava river. Opposite to Kreuzburg / Krustpils on the
other bank of the river the town Jakobstadt now Jekabpils is situated.
Kreuzburg was in Livonia / Livland and Jakobstadt /Jekabpils in Courland a
situation quite different for the Jews. At the time when Jews already were
able to get permits to live in Courland, Jews were still not permitted to
settle in Livland.

The little town Dankere now Gostini situated on the same bank and rather
close to Kreuzburg belonged at that time to the Vitebsk gubernia and was
accessible for Jews at that time. Jews and their families lived in Dankere
but during working days spent their time in Livland to return home at night.
Hence Dankere at that time housed an appreciable number of Jews.

In a forest about 3-5 km >from Dankere developed an old and rather big Jewish
cemetery. It was the closest place to Dankere Jews were permitted to bury
their relatives. Since the holocaust there are no Jews in Dankere. Last
summer under the guidance of a German priest Klaus-Peter Rex >from Wuelfrath,
Germany a group of school children >from Germany, Netherlands and Austria
worked hard to clean and restore as far as possible the neglected and
damaged cemetery. His group together with Latvian pupils >from a nearby town
Plavinas did a formidable work I was able to admire being invited to the
impressive opening ceremony at the end of their work.

Genners,

It's as though Steve Morse and all the angels who work
with him in providing filters and other assistance
when we work with the many different databases have
read my mind!

Just on Sunday, I thought - 'I wonder when will we be
able to look for a bride on the [not yet complete but
still really terrifc] Brides' Index at the Italian
Genealogical Group web-site and then cross-reference
the groom with the click of the mouse?'

Well, they HAVE done it. It was available this
morning. Today I learned who the mysterious, name
illegibly scribbled on a sheet, seemingly-seaworthy
Malty Pascoe really was - just Matthew [or Matty]
Pascow [probably once Pascowitz] who married my
father's cousin in Brooklyn in May of 1934.

Kudos to Steve and his team once again!

"Story of a Czech Water Polo Player/Officer/Jew" Mar. 16 in San Francisco #general

Jrbaston
 

Although Jewish athletes played a major role in competitive sports at
the start of the twentieth century, they do not always occupy a
significant place in Jewish memory or research.

On Thursday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Library
in San Francisco, Helen Epstein, author of "Children of the Holocaust"
and "Where She Came From: A Daughter's Search for her Mother's
History," turns her focus on her father, Czech Olympic athlete Kurt Epstein.

Drawing on her research >from historical sources as well as interviews
with other Central European athletes, Epstein sketches the life of her
father and his generation of Jewish sportsmen and women in the period
between the two World Wars.

Born in Prague in 1947, Helen Epstein, the daughter of Holocaust
survivors, grew up in New York City and studied musicology at Hebrew
University in Jerusalem.

The Jewish Community Library is located at 1835 Ellis Street, San
Francisco. There is free parking in the building on Pierce Street between
Ellis and Eddy Streets. Helen Epstein's appearance is co-sponsored by
the Holocaust Center of Northern California and the Northern California
Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. The event -- like all programs at the Library
-- is free.

Dear Dave,

I am delighted to see that someone has had the time,
energy, and dedication, to make the trip. There are
two resources for genealogical research regarding
Danzig/Gdansk. The national Polish archives, which
are on the internet, and through which one can hire
researchers. On the other hand, the Mormon Church
(LDS) has already filmed all these records, and they
are on file in Salt Lake city. The Mormons have a
'Family History Center' at each of their temples all
over the world, and they are open to all. The staff
encourage each visitor, and assist in the research as
well as can be expected of non-professional
genealogical researchers. Each of the filmed records
are indexed and that index is available on the
internet as well, the only problem is that all the
records are either in polish, german, yiddish, hebrew,
russian or latin.. and in the handscript of the
17th/18th century.

Have a go.. Don Jaffa

If you follow the link "znajdziesz tez tutaj" above the photos,
you will find another website with information about this cemetery,
including the following names >from legible gravestones:

Israel Levy ALDERANDE (1860)
Aron CASPER (1870)
Wilhelmine COHN (1855)
Alexander and Anna DEUTSCHLAND (1872)
Heymann Beer FURSTENBERG
Hedwig GOLDSTEIN (19th c.)
Alexander GOTTSCHALLE (1855)
Simon Aron LEVY (1855)
Gustav LIEPMAN (1872)
Maria LOEWENSTIEN (1856)
Sara PARADIES (1867)
Golde ROSENSTEIN (1854)
Joseph STEIN (1856)
Mendel WEISSLACH (1872)

I presume, but am not certain, that the dates refer to burial.

In the archives of the united Danzig Jewish Community and its
"precursor" communities at the Central Archives for the History
of the Jewish People are cemetery registers, death registers, and
documents >from the burial societies. See the online inventory
mentioned in the Resources section of our SIG website for further
details.

There are also, apparently, cemetery records and photographs of
gravestones on Family History Library (Mormon) microfilms (details

they are.
