WW2 evacuation in King's Lynn #unitedkingdom

mavalan_shaffer@...
 

I have a photo taken of a primary school picnic in King's Lynn (Clenchwarton?)
1940-41, where my sister and I were evacuees. My sister was sent with Sigdon
Road School (Hackney) and we remember a teacher, Miss Goldstein.
We are not sure of the exact location of the photo which I can email.
Our names were Shirley and Mavis Morris.
We would love to hear >from anyone who was at Clenchwarton School or with other relevant knowledge.
With thanks for any help.

Why they left the Pale #general

AUBREY JACOBUS <aajacobus@...>
 

Being the child of an immigrant I am always conscious of the fact that but
for my father's decision to leave Poland to avoid the Czar's army (where
all his brothers had served), I would certainly not be alive today.

My father always spoke nostalgically of his home shtetl and never spoke
of a fear of progroms although he was well aware of them occurring
elsewhere in the Pale. The reason for the mass immigration of Jews >from
Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th C is almost always given as
"to escape persecution" and I feel this is to distort history. Consequently
I have "inherited" a strange sentimental attachment to my father's shtetl -
am I alone ?

Changing names from MOWSOWITZ to GOLDSTONE: Why? To fool the Russians? #general

Derek Stavrou
 

Shalom to the Discussion Group

I'd like to pick your brains on a problem I have with forebears >from Seda
in Lithuania, who left for Britain in the 1890s. They are two children of
Rabbi Nathan MOWSOWITZ: His daughter Dora married Max COHEN and on her
death in Scotland in 1940, she is shown as Dora COHEN, maiden name MOWSOWITZ.

My problem arises with her brother, who was known in England, and then in
the USA where he eventually settled, as Morris GOLDSTONE.

So my problem is why his family name is different >from his sister's. Why
is he GOLDSTONE, not MOWSOWITZ ?? One explanation could be that they had
different fathers, but the evidence doesn't support that, because their
mother died before their father.

There was another brother (Ephraim, I believe - who also became a rabbi,
but I have no indication of his family name), so another explanation could
be that Morris wanted to claim to be >from a different family in order to
evade the Russian restrictions on emigration, or possibly to avoid
conscription to the Czarist army.

If anyone can suggest if these are likely scenarios - or, indeed any other
reason for siblings to have (or to claim to have!!) different family
names - I'd be very grateful.

With thanks and best wishes >from a sweltering Israel

Re: Need help finding passenger manifest, please! #general

Thanks to everyone who helped me find this manifest. I was searching
correctly, although perhaps not widely enough. She arrived in 1902, but
Hannah Strick was listed as Hanne Struck and indexed as HEUIC FRUCTS! The
fancy "S" was mistaken for an "F" and the "k" at the end of Struck was
mistaken for a "ts". WOW!

I have been searching for my great-grandmother's passenger manifest forever,
it seems. It's time to ask for help. I have searched every combination I can
think of.

Her name was Chana/Hannah/Anna STRICK.
She **definitely** arrived sometime between 1888 and 1909, but census info
points strongly to 1902.
She was in her 60's and widowed when she emigrated >from Wielopole
Skrzynskie, Poland.
Her entire family (8 children) were all in New York and came through Ellis
Island. I have no reason to believe she didn't do the same. She lived in New
York for the rest of her life.
She died before Social Security came into being and never applied for
citizenship...

Info on a relative executed by the Gestapo #general

Johnny Maduzia <j_maduzia@...>
 

Jewishgen,
I'm searching for information on a relative of mine, Joseph Maduzia. He
was visiting a neighbor of his that was hiding a Jewish family >from the
Germans. While there the German Gestapo appeared and finding Jewish people
hidden there, executed my relative, his neighbor and his family and the
Jewish family and burned their farm to the ground. This occurred around
the village of Jaworze Dolne Poland in 1943 I think.

Is there anyway that I can get information on this incident? I would
appreciate any info, thanks.

Regards,
Johnny Maduzia

I appreciate all of the responses that I have gotten and if I haven't

However, I have yet to receive an answer to my question that if I get
the burial plot information, would anyone be able to take a photo?
Yes, I have the death certificate information and his date of death.

Thanks again!
