Baron Hugo WATTMANN #galicia

I would appreciate suggestions >from anyone on this list on how to determine
whether Wattmann Family archives exist and if so where they are located.
Baron Hugo Wattman was the owner of a small (Galician) village I am
researching, Stary Dzikow. This I learned >from the 1929 Polish Business
Directory. A relative of mine, Leibush Just who lived between about 1840
and the early 1900s worked for Wattmann. I've looked through Gayle Riley's
references and did not find Wattmann mentioned. I googled the Wattmann name
and found under titled Polish nobility the hyphenated name,
Wattmann-Maelcamp--Beaulieu. The name is also linked to a famous Austrian
surgeon who lived between 1780 and 1860. All tips are most welcome.

Szeged Hungary - girls' business school graduation photo 1928-29 #general

Susan Fifer <suef@...>
 

I recently purchased a graduation photo of a girls' business/commercial
school in Szeged, Hungary dated 1928-29. This would have made the dates of
birth for the girls around 1910. About half the names seem Jewish. A full
list is below. I have scanned the photo and am happy to email a copy (say
whether you want the 700k version or the 2MB version) to anyone who thinks
they might have a relative on the photo. Please don't ask for any more
information about the individuals or the school as I don't have anything and
am not researching my own family in Hungary.

Livia ROKACH - Looking for her Relatives #general

N. Rosenberg <rose4@...>
 

I have in my possession three original photos of Livia ROKACH that I would
like to pass on to her family.

Livia Rokach was the daughter of Esther (daughter of Chaya and Yeshayahu
EPSTEIN) and Israel ROKACH (son of Rachel and Shimon). Her father Israel
ROKACH was Mayor of Tel Aviv >from 1936 - 1952 and Minister of Interior under
Prime Minister Moshe Sharett. She was a journalist and a reporter for Israel
Radio, in Italy.

In the early 1980s, Livia Rokach translated excerpts >from Moshe Sharett's
diary and inserted them into her book: "Israel's Sacred Terrorism ". This
was an extremely provocative book which has been widely used as propaganda
by Palestinian activists. Livia Rokach was found dead in her Rome hotel room
in the 1980's.

If you are a family member of Livia Rokach and are interested in the photos,
please write to me.

Re: French spelling of towns in Russia #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Vselyub (or Wsielub) is certainly the right spelling for "Cheloupe",
which is a very near French pronunciation of that name. One has to
remind that in those days, there were no birth certificate to show
when people arrived in the French camp of Drancy, and those who had
to write down the names of the arriving new inmates had to write it
how they heard it, as they could. Moreover, many people who arrived
didn't even know how to read or write.

Richard,

Vselyub was known in Polish as Wsielub, pron. [vsheh loob], hence French
Cheloupe.

Russian capital Peterburg (St Petersburg) was renamed at the begining of WWI
to Petrograd (Russian for town of Peter) due to the wartime antiGerman
sentiments.

(Similarly, during same period, Canadian town Berlin (located in Ontario
Province) was renamed Kitchener).

BTW, Petrograd was again renamed Leningrad, shortly after Lenin's death in
1924, and again re-re-re named to St (Saint) Petersburg few years ago.

Any help with the two towns spelling and location would be great.
"Petrograd" (same spelling in English) is another name for St.
Petersburg.

Re: French spelling of towns in Russia #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

In 1914, the name Saint Petersbourg was supposed
to be too much German and became Petrograd. In
1924, in memory of Lenine who just died,
Petrograd was named Leningrad.

Concerning Abraham LEVIN, yes, indeed, his name
appears on some list of deportation, as born in
"Cheloupe" (Russia) on 3 July 1896, died on
9 March 1943 in Lublin-Maidanek (Poland). Bu I
could'nt find his name in the "Memorial of Jews
deported >from France", by Serge Klarsfeld. It may
be mean that there are some errors in the
details. It seems that name "Cheloupe" doens't
appear anywhere else. I may be wrong. I'm going
to search again.

Emile LEVINE (with an "E") was born in LENINGRAD
on 7 November 1921. He was deported to Auschwitz
on 23 September 1942 with the Convoy #36.
