Gruenthal hard labour camp, near Breslau #general

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello,
I have been searching for information about a forced labour camp to the east
of Breslau (now Wroclaw, Poland) called Gruenthal. I have definite
information >from ITS replies that my great-grandfather, Georg STERNBERG, was
sent there at some point during the war, I think that this might have been
the case for his two sons Karl-Georg and Guenther too.

I have not been able to find mention of this place on internet, I've tried
different search methods, I cannot even establish whether it was part of the
Gross-Rosen complex or simply defensive earthworks to try to stop the
on-coming Soviet Army. Any information about this place that anyone might be
able to pass on would be very valuable to me.

Many thanks

best regards

Re: Klein/Kline Research #hungary

I almost positive I have found the town/village where Ignatz Klein 1864-1934 (aka Kline) was >from in Hungary. I located his application for Naturalization to become a US citizen. He listed his town as BAKOS-ER HUNGARY. I found the location in Borsod Abauj Zemplen Meghe/county. The location: latitude: 48.08333 N---and the Longitude is 21.25 E.

It is 108.3 miles ENE of Budapest. Also, the shape name for the Gazetteer is BAKOSER.

On further research it appears the village name must have changed to Miskolc (It's very confusing!) However, I want to confirm this village or area as to where Ignatz Klein/Kline was from. He changed his name >from Klein to Kline when he came to the US in 1882.

To all Jenners---is there anyone who might know more about this town/village and also where I might find the county/meghe records for further research? Like so many novice genealogists I don't know where to go next. I would like to find if there might be any Klein family or ancestors in this area or thereabouts and if they survived after WWII. Thanks so much. Donna Kline

Hungarian Cadastral Maps now online #hungary

Ruben Weiser
 

Hi

Besides the Transcarpathian cadastral maps now online in mapire .
There are also cadastral maps for most of the other counties in Hungary
including owners lists.
the maps are not for all the towns.
See web page http://archivportal.arcanum.hu/kataszter/

Also in my last year travel to Hungary I was able to get some land records
of my family >from the regional's land record offices which include the names
of many family members when they inherited the property
The land record offices sometimes have last names indexes and also some
cadastral maps.
Usually they are not happy at all to give info or records to genealogists.
Every group of towns have their own land record office, you have to figure it
out which office does your towns belong to.


Hope it helps

Thanks

Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois Program Weds. May 20, 2015: "Online Resources for Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland: What's New? #general

events@...
 

Program: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Program starts 7:30 p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.

Online Resources for Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland: What's New? will
be the topic of genealogist Mike Karsen's presentation at the Wednesday,
May 20, 2015, meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois in
Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.

The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 6:30 p.m. to
accommodate members who want to use or borrow genealogy library materials,
get help with genealogy websites, or ask genealogical questions before
the main program begins at 7:30 p.m.

Genealogy has changed dramatically in the last 20 years with a very high
percentage of important records being indexed in online databases, or
the records themselves having become searchable and available online.
Today's Chicago Jewish genealogy researcher has access to vital records,
and cemetery, naturalization, census, and many other documents online.
This presentation will provide an update on what resources are currently
available online to Chicago-area Jewish family historians.

A professional speaker, Mike Karsen is a member of the Association of
Professional Genealogists and the Genealogical Speakers Guild, and is
past president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois. He has
presented over 250 talks on family legacy topics locally, nationally,
and internationally, including at the Newberry Library and Spertus
Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago. Karsen is the
author of the JewishGen website's "Guide to Jewish Genealogy in
Chicagoland" and has published articles on genealogy.

(Germany) NY Times Article on New Munich Museum: Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism #germany

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Munich has a new museum, The Documentation Center for the History of
National Socialism . It opened on the 70th anniversary plus one day after
the US Army marched into Munich-- April 30, 1945.

The permanent exhibit follows the rise of the Nazi Party chronologically.
It shows visitors the role that Munich and its society played in creating
the anti-Semitic preachings by the Nazis.

The Museum also shows the current discrimination.
Neo-Nazis demonstrated against the Museum outside of the building at its
opening last Friday. There were also anti-immigrant demonstrations in Munich
but thousands more showed up to send the alternate message of tolerance and
diversity.

The article also gives the history of how Munich was the center
of the birth of the Nazi party. The Museum, ten years in the making was a
way for the City of Munich to confront its past.

information about "Aguda" - Jewish relief organization #germany

Does anyone know anything about Aguda? A family member mentions it in a
1941 letter written >from Nazi-occupied Amsterdam and it seems it might be
an orthodox Jewish charity agency that was trying to help refugees.

Thank you for any information. Judy Vasos, judyvasos@gmail.com

Kurt FRIDLAENDER, Melbourne - German Holocaust survivor & JewishGen volunteer #germany

Renate Rosenau <RenateRosenau@...>
 

The life of JewishGen volunteer Kurt FRIEDLAENDER is a German
Holocaust survivor story.

Born in Berlin 1924, he lost his father at the age of 6 and his mother only
five years later. He started an apprenticeship as printer at the former
Philo-Verlag Berlin and was to follow his sister and two brothers in
September 1939 to England, when this plan became impracticable.

Instead he was sent to forced labour, first near Berlin, then to
Auschwitz-Monowitz. He survived Auschwitz and the death march via
Gross-Rosen to Dachau, where he was liberated 70 years ago.

He met his wife Inge at a Munich dc-camp and managed to emigrate
to Australia, where he earned his living in trade.

Kurt became an active member and volunteer at the Jewish Holocaust Center
Melbourne and with JewishGen, where he is listed in 27 activities and
honoured as volunteer.

Our cousin KURT FRIEDLAENDER, North Caulfield/Melbourne/Australia,
passed away on May 1, 2015 in his 91st year, 70 years after his liberation
at Dachau concentration camp, beloved husband of Inge, father of Leo and
Charles, grandfather and ggfather, brother of Alan, and fondly remembered by
cousins in Australia, Germany, US, UK.
We had only traced each other in the 1990s - just one of so many family
stories - and had intensely enjoyed our relationship. He introduced me to
JewishGen in the 1990s. We do miss him.
