"Return of the Jew: Discovering Jewish Roots and the Revival of Jewish
Life in Contemporary Poland" with Katka Reszke

Tuesday, January 21, 2014
7:45PM
Skirball Cultural Center - Magnin Auditorium
2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, 90049

Once home to the greatest Jewish community in the world, and then site
of the biggest tragedy in Jewish history, today Poland is experiencing
what some have called a "renaissance of Jewish culture."
Simultaneously, more and more Poles are discovering their Jewish roots
and beginning to seek forms of Jewish affiliation. Drawing from
personal experience and >from her research, writer/filmmaker, Katka
Reszke, will discuss the complexities involved in discovering Jewish
roots in today's Poland and of being -- or perhaps becoming -- Jewish
in unique and compelling circumstances. Her new book "Return of the
Jew: Identity Narratives of the Third Post-Holocaust Generation of
Jews in Poland," Katka gives rare -- and welcome -- voice to the actual
protagonists, Poland's "new Jews," and sets in a complex context their
unprecedented, and often poignant, quest for place, identity and
selfhood amid the brave new Jewish realities of post-communist Poland.

Katka Reszke is a writer, documentary filmmaker, photographer and
researcher in Jewish history, culture, and identity. She holds a Ph.D.
in Jewish Education >from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel,
an M.A. in Cultural Studies >from the University of Wroclaw, Poland,
and a diploma in Jewish Studies >from the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and
Jewish Studies. She has lectured on different aspects of the
Polish-Jewish experience at numerous educational and cultural
institutions in the U.S. and Europe.

This program is co-sponsored by the Consulate of the Republic of
Poland in Los Angeles. Katka will be introduced by Consul General,
Mariusz M. Brymora , the former deputy director of the Department of
Public and Cultural Diplomacy of the Polish Ministry of Foreign
Affairs . A noted English translator, his literary translations
include two short stories by Bernard Malamud. >from 1994 until 1998 he
served as a councilman and deputy mayor of his hometown Radom, Poland.

JGSLA members free, guests $5.00. More information at:
http://www.JGSLA.org or at: http://www.katkareszke.com/

The JGSLA traveling library will be available starting at 7:00PM. A
book sale and signing will be held after the lecture. No reservations
are necessary.

Dear all,

I'm wondering if any of you live in or nearby the town of Lutsk/Luck

I'm aware that the house might not be the same.

Czernowitz BMD Index Database Update #general

Daniel Horowitz <daniel@...>
 

Dear JewishGeners

Thanks to many of you that volunteer to transcribe, we finished all
the indexed BMD (and some voters and other lists) records.
The updated database is now available on the usual address
http://microtarget.com/czernowitz/CzernowitzBMDindex.htm

But this is far >from finish. We are now working on the actual records
from 1860-1894 and 1930-1941 that had no index. This is a real
treasure on the history of our ancestors.

Happy New Year 2014

Why did Maier ADLER become Albert GOLDHAMER? #general

Jack and Pat Freeman <jandp.freeman@...>
 

I have in the past 4 years or so posted to this message board a few
times requesting help with my research into the origins of Albert
GOLDHAMER, specifically the confusion I encountered when I became
aware that was not his real, or at least his original, name. Early
on I determined when he, his wife and 2 of their eventual 5 children
left Slovakia in 1902 to settle in Philadelphia. Over time I pieced
together the growth in their family and change of residence to
small-town Ontario, then to Toronto, and then to their dispersal to
various areas of Canada and the US. They are all now dead - none of
the children had children. A year ago I decided to commit my
research and findings to paper as further information, or at least
facts, seemed impossible to find. My story of the Goldhamer family
is in the JGS of Toronto library.

Part of the confusion was that other names for Albert kept coming up;
particularly in birth records of his children. The most common was a
surname of ADLER, and various first names, usually beginning with M.
It was clear that Goldhamer, although the name he used for at least
50 years, and which his children carried for all their lives, was not
his name - it was his wife's maiden name. But her origins proved to
be only slightly less obscure than his. I did, about 4 years ago,
find a record of her and 2 children, all with the surname Adler,
arriving at Ellis Island, but no record for Albert ever surfaced.

Just this past weekend based on another message board's note of
updates to searchable passenger list records, I thought I would try
again to find Albert. And there was his 1902 arrival at Ellis Island,
under the name Maya Adler, enroute to Philadelphia. And I also found
the corresponding departure record >from Hamburg, under the name Maier
Adler. All the other details confirmed my previous findings. Now I
will continue my research to try and find out his elusive birth and
marriage records and hopefully determine who his parents were. And
also, if possible, determine why the name change >from Adler to
Goldhamer in 1904.

Any suggestions as to where I might pursue research as to birth and
marriage records in today's Slovakia (Hungary in the late 1800s) would
be appreciated. The town of last residence was Batizovce (Batizfalva
in Hungarian, Batzdorf in German).
