Locating Yad Vashem Submitters for Traw from Rozniatov #ukraine

Raanan Wlosko
 

Hello all

Recently I found a search bureau of the Jewish Agency for Israel
for missing relatives filled by my maternal grandmother about 50 years ago.
The search result in the early 1950s was negative.
The names that my GM was looking for were Mordehai and Ester Traw >from
Rozniatov, children of Israel Traw. The Exact relation was not mentioned.
I found 2 Yad Vashem Testimony pages for Israel Traw >from Rozniatov, the
submitters were Mordechai and Ester.
Unfortunately I failed to locate them, I doubt if they still with us but
maybe their children are.
To my best knowledge no one of my GM family survived WWII, it's a chance
to rediscover the family.
Any help concerning locating the submitters will appreciated

Thank you
Raanan wlosko

Levice {Leva/Lewentz}, Slovakia - the derelict synagogue. #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

On a recent visit to Slovakia with two Austria-Czech genners - Frank Feiner of
Rotterdam and Jack [& Maureen] Jellins of Sydney - we looked for the Jewish
cemetery in Levice and failed to find it. We did however find the Christian
cemetery. Whilst stopping in a tree-lined square which had an aura of abandoned
history about it, we looked up and realised we had parked in front of a derelict
synagogue.

Please look at this set of pictures to see what I saw, and more importantly, what
the camera saw inside the synagogue. I could see nothing as it was so dark inside
and the only accessible viewpoint was a hole in the door. I could hear the birds
inside the building though - the windows are all broken. The result was a surprise
when I got home and uploaded my pictures: Levice {Leva/Lewentz}, Slovakia - the
derelict synagogue http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/sets/72157622074348822/

Please also look at the *detail* option [all pictures enlarge] and the map [my
thanks to Frank, the excellent navigator on this trip].

As there are so few pictures, you may decide to choose a very short slide-show with
{or without} notes.

Not only is this synagogue derelict, it is tragic because of the deportations which
took place in front of its door as late as 1944. It is interesting to note that
Levice was under Ottoman rule until 1685. Did some Sephardic Jews >from the Ottoman
Empire settle there and assimilate with the local community? That is a distinct
possibility.

There are a few messages on Levice in the archives {1996-2008} and I have sent all
the correspondents a copy of this message, which they may not receive if their
email addresses have changed since then. Judith Young's message in 2001 states that
the Jewish cemetery was desecrated.

Bielsk Podlaski #general

Jose Klingbeil
 

Dear friends,

Does anyone know what genealogical sources are available for the city of Bielsk
Podlaski (near Bialystok)? It seems that there is no record at all in JRI although
the only LDS microfilm (only for BMD of year 1835) is shown as "complete". There
could be a Book of Permanent Residents but I found no trace at all. A census seem
to exist in Belarus (found in Routes to Roots Foundation) but no index available on
Internet. Can someone help me find these sources? I'm looking for KLESCZELSKI
families.

Best,

Information re Rabbi Uri Miller of New Orleans and Baltimore Synagogues #general

bud484bg@...
 

Dear researchers:

I have about exhausted my resources in my search for information about Rabbi Uri
MILLER who was the rabbi of Ansche Sfad Synagogue/Beth Israel Synagogue in New
Orleans, Louisiana, in 1944 and Beth Israel Synagogue in Baltimore, until he passed
away at the age of 66 in June of 1972. I have not been able to find an obit
mentioning surviving family members- or cemetery information in newspapers ( the
Baltimore Jewish Times). During his lifetime, he was President of the Synagogue
Council of America and was part of the Civil Rights movement and was on the program
in Washington, DC with Martin Luther King, Jr.

Does anyone have any information or can supply a link?

(FYI - Rabbi Miller performed the marriage service for my then soldier groom and I,
in the Rabbi's study, in New Orleans, in March 1944).

I wouldn't assume that she wasn't a "true" older sister just because it might have
been easier to emigrate if the immigrant claimed to have a close relative. Don't
rush to write someone off on that basis - you won't know if she is a sibling until
you trace through the birth records.

My great-grandfather Nathan Paderefsky is listed in the 1900 New York census with
his wife and children and, along with them is Jacob, a brother. Nathan in 1900 was
38 years old, Jacob is listed as 20 years old - a difference of 18 years!

Is Jacob a full brother, a half-brother or perhaps no "true" brother at all? I
don't know yet. But, if he is a full brother or even a half-brother, suddenly my
tree just got a lot larger.

to call someone a sister who may not have been one.

If someone wanted to emigrate to the US it was considered much easier for
processing if the immigrant claimed to have a close relative. It was insurance
against the possibility of being denied entry. The same thing shows on the
manifest for my grandfather and his sister and their father who all arrived
together. They respectively cited an unnamed sister and daughter. This really
confused me because I could find no evidence that there was a close relative
already in the US.
