Special Announcement - Series of Articles by Lisa Thaler #galicia

Groll, Avraham
 

We are pleased to announce that author and family historian Lisa
Thaler will be contributing a series of articles to the JewishGen
blog (<www.JewishGen.blogspot.com>) entitled "Framing History:
Sacha Kolin in The Rose Art Museum's Permanent Collections."

Lisa spent ten years uncovering the life story and oeuvre of the
Jewish emigre artist Sacha Kolin (1911 Paris-1981 New York). Her
groundbreaking research methods are demonstrated in her biography
Look Up: The Life and Art of Sacha Kolin (New York: Midmarch Arts
Press, 2008).

from the mid-1960s, campus museums acquired hundreds of Kolins,
including 32 artworks at Brandeis University's The Rose Art Museum.
The University's announcement on January 26, 2009, later modified,
to deaccession its art collection generated fervent commentary.

In this three-part series "Framing History," Lisa places the
academic museum in historical context, explaining the economic
policies and social factors that fueled the explosive growth of
campus museums in this era, and highlighting the archival records
generated by the museum community. Family historians may apply
these strategies to any occupation and to conduct
cross-disciplinary studies.

The "framing history" articles will be posted on the JewishGen
blog (<www.JewishGen.blogspot.com>) beginning Friday, March 27th.

Enjoy!

Dear Fellow Members

I noticed that Judith Elam in her message about Emigration >from Berlin
in 1940/41 thanked Ines Gurske. I, too, have been the beneficiary of
Ms Gurske's kindness in helping in my family research, and I hope that
it is in order for me to publicly thank her.

SITE CITE - History of the Jews of Aschaffenburg, Bavaria BOOK CITE #germany

Werner Hirsch
 

The history of the Jews of Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, and the surrounding towns
which were served by the rabbinate of Aschaffenburg, was written by Rabbi
Salomon Bamberger and published by Josef Singer, Strassburg in 900.

The title is: "Historiche Berichte ueber die Juden der Stadt und des
ehemalige Fuerstentums Aschaffenburg."

The book is written in German, Hebrew, and Judeo-German. An index to the
names in the book, which I don't think has been previously available,
follows the original text.

I have uploaded the book to the Internet, and you can find it here:
