Dear JewishGen researchers,

I am looking for information about Gymnasium of Riga Jewish school
society Tushija. My uncle Zalmans Machelsons was a teacher
(1933-1939) and principal (1939-1940) in this school.
If you or your relatives were students or teachers in this school and
you have any memories and/or photos >from this school I would
appreciate if you will contact me.

Thank you for your help

Goleszow (Goleschau)- Cement Factory Near Auschwitz #general

esjoachim@...
 

My cousin, Pierre (nee Ephraim in France) CHANOVER, a hidden child Holocaust
survivor, told me just yesterday, that he had learned his father, Shlomo
Yankel nee CHRZANOWER (k/a Jacques in France), did not die immediately upon
his deportation to Auschwitz on Convoy #5 >from Beaune la Ronde, France on
June 28, 1942.

Shlomo Yankel CHRZANOWER apparently was sent to work in the Portland Cement
Factory in or near Goleszow, Poland (Goleschau in German). We cannot
determine for how long Shlomo Yankel worked in Goleszow before his death in
Auschwitz.

Pierre would like to learn his father's actual date of death in order to
properly memorialize his father's death by saying Kadish. Pierre was 9 years
old the last time he saw his father, 68 years ago.

A Google search of Goleszow provides some basic historical information but
no specific documentation of workers as far as I could tell.

Thanks for any help, information and insights,

Sources for Information on Family Before and During the Shoah #general

Subject: sources for information on family before and during the Shoah

Sabena Stark wrote asking for information on archives containing
Shoah survivior's oral testimony other than Yad Vashem.

The Holocaust Media Project, founded in 1983 by the late Lani Silver
and my life partner, R. Ruth Linden, Ph.D, was the predecessor of the
Bay Area Holocaust Oral History Project (BAHOHP) in San Francisco.
Beginning in 1981, oral histories of survivors >from around the world
were recorded at various locations including at an American Gathering
of Jewish Holocaust Survivors in the early '80's. Silver and Linden
later consulted with Stephen Spielberg in 1994 when he founded his
Holocaust oral history project, The Shoah Foundation.

BAHOHP retained a recording of each interview and sent a copy to the
United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. Each interviewee
also received a copy of their interview. BAHOHP then merged with the
Holocaust Center of Northern California (HCNC. http://www.hcnc.org/.

R. Ruth Linden, Ph.D. donated copies of the original Holocaust Media
Project archives (1981-1984) to Yad Vashem in September, 2007 through
the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco. I do not know whether these
copies have been catalogued by Yad Vashem and made available to the
public yet, however.

Vicki,
Since you know a U.S. City to look for, another good resource is searching
City Directories. Not many are online yet, but those that are really help
fill in family stories. This is a link to one location including 1897-1898.
www.linkstothepast.com/milwaukee/ctydir.php No BOOKSTAFF but does have
BLUM, an early Milwaukee resident. There were many more Jews in Milwaukee
after 1900 than before.

I have 1933 and 1936 Milwaukee City Directories, and am sending the
BOOKSTAFF residents to you under separate email. I think you'll be pleased with
the information a City Directory supplies.

anyone looking for Moe FISHER (born 1892 in Briansk)? #general

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

Going through old boxes >from my in-laws we have discovered 18
typewritten pages of narrative family history by someone my wife has
never heard of, and does not appear anywhere in our family tree. It
was written in 1985 and appears to be an original rather than a
carbon copy. This is the kind of document that would be an amazing
discovery for any genealogist with a connection to this person.

Moe FISHER was born in Briansk (Grodno gubernia) in 1892. His father
was Mordechai (>from Sokolow), his grandfather was Moses (eventually
in Lapi near Bialystok). Mordechai had been married before and was a
widower. Moe had one half brother >from the first marriage named
Benjamin as well as several sisters. Moe's mother, Bluma Ester, had
also been married once before - her first husband died after 4 years
of marriage and the two boys >from that marriage died young. Moe had
older sisters Sarah, Razel and Mushie who survived as well as younger
twin boys who died as infants. Moe's family later moved to Bialystok.
Moe's uncle (his mother's sister's husband) was named PRUSHANSKI and
lived in Kowel (Wolyn gubernia).

Moe emigrated on the Kroonland which arrived in New York on November
26, 1912, where he joined his half brother Ben. He was listed as
Mojsche FISCHER >from Bialystok. Moe enlisted during World War I and
was later trapped in Bialystok in 1920 during a visit after his
mother's death there. He eventually escaped with his father and a
nephew, and was helped along the way by the family of his future wife,
Libby KALEKOS, in Suchowolia.

I cannot identify an obvious match in the FTJP or JGFF.

If you recognize this family please let me know and I will be happy to
send a copy of this narrative to you.

Immigrant arrivals in Baltimore,Maryland USA #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Nadine--If you have access to Ancestry through your local library,
try going there and seeing if you can find an arrival record for your
family. You can also research the arrival through your local LDS
library. If you go there, they will be happy to explain to you how
to do it.

If all else fails, you can contact the Jewish Historical Society of
Maryland. Since Baltimore was the first leg of the Baltimore and
Ohio railroad, many immigrants landed in Baltimore and then were
helped by HIAS to continue on to the midwest. The Historial Society
has a list of those immigrants they helped for a certain set of years
-- I can't remember exactly the dates, but they can tell you. If you
get lucky, they will be able to locate a card on your immigrant
ancestor with some valuble information for you. You can locate their
address and telephone number on-line if you wish.

They might have even obtained ship arrivals for the port of Baltimore
since I have last been there. It has been awhile, and I know they
have continued to add to their collection.

Best wishes,
Carol Rombro Rider Baltimore, Maryland USA CRomRider@aol.com

<< I am hoping that someone who is more adept than I am, might help me
pin down the arrival of my ggparents. I believe it would have been
Baltimore since that is where the rest of the family arrived. >>

there is a a copy of the same book there, as well as others list
of Auschwitz prisoners.

The book "Polscy Zydzi w KL Auschwitz" lists names of

Joan,

I have a copy of this book. It was published by Jewish Historical
Institute, Warsaw in 2004, edited by Stanislaw Maczka. Original
title: Zydzi polscy w KL Auschwitz wykazy imienne" and it also
exhibits an English title "Polish Jews in KL Auschwitz name lists".

The book lists 17,949 names of Polish Jews registered in the
survived documentation of prisoners of KL Auschwitz.

To my best knowledge, the book was not digitized, and there is
no particular reason for digitization since a CD is attached to
the book and surnames/names can be easily located. The list
provides very basic information: surname/name, date of births,
date of death or note of liberation, or date of evacuation to
other KL Buchenwald, Gross-Rosen, Ravensbruck.
