shay habel <shayhabel@...>
 

Dear Genners

Klara HABEL, Toni BERMAN and Lotte FISHMAN attended The Jewish Girls
School Auguststrasse in Berlin between 1927-35.

Klara perished in the 27/11/1941 transport to Riga aged 19. Lotte and Toni
survived and came to England, but both have now passed away so we cannot
ask them about their time there.

Klara is our Aunt and we know very little about her. If anyone has any
knowledge of Klara, Toni or Lotte at this time or attended the school
and has memories of it at this time, or has relatives who did, please
can you share any information which you have? Are there any photographic
/other records of the school and if so where? Thank you

Does anyone know when the following was added? "Narrative of The Expulsion
of Polish Jews >from the German Reich 1938/1939 and Their Records"

I looked for Gershon HABEL on the lists about 6 months ago and he
was not there. Yet we know that he was deported to Benchen two weeks
before Kristallnacht and eventually ended up in Bialystock where he
was joined by his wife Dora HABEL and their young son Jean.
(Information about Dora >from the Bundesarchiv) Nothing known about
any of them therafter, not on any lists.

Where can we look now?

Re: Enquiry about Aktion T4 Gnadentod, Nazi forced euthanasia #germany

Renate Rosenau <RenateRosenau@...>
 

Here is some more background information:

The murder of Jewish patients with mental disabilities was carried out
in two phases:

1. the "T4"-action 1940 to August 1941,
2. in the Shoa 1942.

1: Patient murder was an undercover action as it was against law. The
first phase of patient murder was prepared in 1939 and started in 1940,
organized by the administration center for the "Gnadentod"-Programme
in Tiergartenstrasse 4, Berlin. The six mental hospitals of Brandenburg,
Bernburg, Pirna, Grafeneck, Schloss Hartheim near Linz/Donau and Hadamar
got gas chambers.

This secret action started with a special programme for Jewish patients
with German or Polish nationality and for stateless. These patients had
to be transferred to special mental hospitals, pointed out as collecting
hospitals, >from where they were sent to one of the six extermination
"hospitals" inside the Deutsches Reich, examples:
August 1940 Jewish patients >from Oberhessen and Ostwestfalen were
collected at the mental hospital Giessen, >from there transferred to
the gas chamber of Brandenburg, killed Oct 1 and 2, 1940.

Jan 1941 patients >from Rheinhessen, south Hessen and north Baden were
collected at Heppenheim mental hospital, transferred Febr. 4, 1941, to
Hadamar and gased on arrival.

The families were informed some weeks later, and to hide the reality a
letter with two death certificates was posted >from "Irrenanstalt Cholm,
Post Lublin" (mental hospital Cholm).
Example: Ella W., murdered in Hadamar Feb 4, 1941, death certificate
March 29, 1941, sent >from Irrenanstalt Cholm, Post Lublin.

This special action for Jewish patients took place in all regions of the
Deutsches Reich, usually the Jewish patients went first before the
Non-Jewish patients.

It was justified and curtained with the argument, that it was no longer
bearable for "German" patients to share a hospital with "Jewish" patients.

2: Shoa 1942
In Dec 1940 the Israeltische Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Sayn (part of
Bendorf near Koblenz/Rhein) - former Jacoby'sche Anstalt, >from May
1940 under administration of the Reichsvereinigung der Juden, was
declared collecting hospital for Jewish patients >from all over the
Reich by the Reichsinnenminister. This private Jewish institution
was a well known place, often used as home for family members who
did not get entry papers when their families emigrated.

1941 the number of patients grew >from 150 to over 500, but the hospital
was not able to take all Jewish patients. So some shared the murder
programme in their original hospitals.

Two weeks after the Wannsee conference ("final solution") the
"evacuation" of patients and staff started.
March 22, 100 patients to Izbica,
April 30, 100 patients to Krasniczyn, east of Lublin
June 14, 250 patients and 80 staff to Sobibor,
July 27 36 patients to Theresienstadt, >from there to Maly Trostinec,
Treblinka and Auschwitz,
Nov.11, 30 patients and staff to Berlin, Juedisches Krankenhaus, >from
thee to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz.

Jewish Protected Subjects of the French Consulate in Tunis, 1830-1913 #france

Thierry Samama <thierry.samama@...>
 

The Cercle de Genealogie Juive has just published a groundbreaking
source for genealogists researching Jews in Tunisia and Algeria:
"Les proteges israelites du consulat de France a Tunis, 1830-1913"
by Liliane Nedjar and myself (in French, 218 pages).

Based on material held at the French Diplomatic Archives in Nantes,
France, the book provides genealogical information on nearly 3.000
individuals and their families (so 10-12.000 individuals in total) who
were registered as protected subjects of the French consulate in Tunis
between 1830-1913. For many protected subjects, the names of their
father, mother, spouse(s) and children are provided, with frequent
references to other entries in the registers. This allows
reconstruction of previously inaccessible genealogies up to the
beginning of the 19th century.

In addition, documents used to justify registration, as well as
administrative documents used to manage the registration process, are
also archived in Nantes. The book supplies indexes to these files
which can yield remarkable papers (e.g. passports, certificates, etc.)
with information such as physical characteristics or additional
biographical and genealogical details, with no other known source for
this period. This will require a short visit to Nantes, which can be
done in a day or two >from Paris.

A list of family names can be found online, and the book can be ordered, at
http://ftp.genealoj.org/fr/becane/proteges

Full disclosure: the authors derive no financial gain whatsoever from
the sale of this book. The non-profit Cercle de Genealogie Juive
is the largest Jewish genealogy association in France and is an IAJGS
affiliate.

New Rom-SIG Research Coordinator... #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

I am very pleased to announce the new Research Coordinator for the
Rom-SIG, Barbara Hershey. Barbara has bravely stepped in to take on
this very important and complex job, following the sad death of Bob
Wascou, last month.

Bob had been our longtime and much loved Research Coordinator. His
managerial skills, as well as his kind,caring and gentle ways has
endeared him to so many. But Barbara is so well suited to follow
in his footsteps!.

Barbara Hershey is the President and Program Chair of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Oregon.She has served on the IAJGS Membership
Development Committee, served on the IAJGS Nominating Committee, two
IAJGS Conference Program Committees and Chaired the IAJGS Awards
Committee. She first attended an IAJGS conference in 2007 in Salt Lake
City as a brand-new genealogist and has attended each conference since
then. She has made many presentations to Jewish and non-Jewish
genealogical societies and co-taught a course on beginning genealogy.

She has been a longtime member of the Rom-SIG, with roots in Iasi! We
are slowly catching up, and learning what needs to be done to continue
as Bob - and all of us - would wish!

In addition, there is now a special fund, set up in memory of Bob
Wascou, on the JewishGen-erosity site at:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=20>
[TinyURL: *http://tinyurl.com/6o3gfnb*] for those who might wish to
honor Bob's memory, and for all that he has done for those with roots in
Romania.

We will use those funds for projects that were closest to Bob's heart!
If you do make a donation, please also notify me [rdleeson@comcast.net],
so that I can let Bob's family know as soon as possible!

Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society -- April Meeting Announcement
Wednesday, April 15, 2015, 6:30 -- 8:30 p.m. Room# TBA, Sabes JCC
4330 Cedar Lake Road, St. Louis Park, MN 55416
Speaker: Lesley K. Cafarelli
Program: Sorry, Virginia, There Is No Magic Leaf: Building a Solid
Family History through Genealogical Proof and Evidence Evaluation
Popular genealogy TV shows, Ancestry commercials, and online family
trees make it seem that family history research takes little more
than assembling a tree of names and dates by following a quivering
leaf. In reality, building a valid family history takes real
detective work and mental exercise, but produces a defensible and
appealing result full of fascinating stories of human relationships
and courage and the power of family and community ties. In this
session, we'll review two helpful tools used by professional
genealogists -- the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) and a system
for evaluating historical evidence -- that can make every family
historian's efforts more meaningful. The session will include
examples >from the presenter's own research and an activity where
participants will apply these tools and consider how they can help
solve a research problem of their own. A handout and list of
additional resources will be provided.
Lesley K. Cafarelli has researched family histories for 25 years.
She specializes in U.S. and colonial American, Italian, English,
Scottish, and Irish research, and Eastern European Jewish research
in Ukraine, Belarus, and Latvia. Lesley graduated >from Wellesley
College, Brandeis University, and Boston University, where she
earned a Ph.D. in Classical Studies. She headed up programs in
educational and leadership development at the Univ. of MN, the
Minnesota Private College Research Foundation, and The
Collaboration for the Advancement of College Teaching & Learning,
a national higher education consortium she founded.
There will be a brief administrative meeting prior to our program.

Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado presents "Cold Case Research: Resources for Unidentified, Missing and Cold Homicide Cases" - Sunday March 22 #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

"Someone's Daughter: In Search of Justice for Jane Doe " and "Cold
Case Research: Resources for Unidentified, Missing and Cold Homicide
Cases"

Presented by Silvia Pettem

Date/Time: Sunday March 22 - 10:00 am until noon
Location: Congregation Har Hashem
3950 West Boulder Road, Boulder, CO

This session is open to the public!

In 1954, a young woman was murdered near Boulder, Colorado, and
buried by the community as "Jane Doe." Fifty years later, Silvia
Pettem stumbled upon her gravestone in Columbia Cemetery, then
joined forensic specialists and law-enforcement officials to
identify the victim. The investigation took more than six years,
combined the latest in Internet searches with gumshoe research of
the past, and took several surprising twists and turns. With many
lessons for genealogists, Silvia discusses her motives in asking
her local Sheriff to revisit the case, explains how and why she
had to solicit private funding, describes her research methodology,
and narrates her unique partnership -as an interested citizen- with
law-enforcement and the forensic community.

Silvia Pettem is so accomplished in finding people that don't want
to be found (or that others cannot find) that we think her methods
could work well for genealogists! She has researched and written
more than a dozen books including helping to solve the identity of
a 55-year-old cold-case homicide. She has been trained by the
National Training Academy for NamUs (National Missing and
Unidentified Persons System) and is a consultant with Boulder
Police detectives.

Jewish Genealogical Society of North Jersey Meeting
Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 7:30 PM
YMCA, 1 Pike Drive, Wayne, NJ

Speaker: Avraham Groll
Program: How did Jews Get to Europe? - Part II

Avraham will give us Part II of his fascinating presentation about
how and why our ancestors moved around the diaspora. He will focus
on the European Jewish communities that existed in parallel with
those located in Israel and then Babylonia. He will discuss how
they were first established and why they did not become major
centers until the 10th century. Understanding Jewish migration
patterns, and the circumstances under which they operated, will
grant us a deeper understanding of our own collective Jewish
istory, and a greater appreciation for our Jewish family history.
Avraham Groll is the Director of Business Operations for JewishGen.
After studying in Israel at Yeshivat Ohr Yerushalayim, he received
a BS >from Ramapo College, and an MBA >from Montclair State
University. He is currently pursuing an MA in Judaic Studies at
Touro College. He is married to Dina, and has three children,
Chaim, Miriam and Shifra.
Refreshments are served. All are welcome.

Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 7:30 PM
YMCA, 1 Pike Drive, Wayne, NJ

Speaker: Avraham Groll
Program: How did Jews Get to Europe? - Part II

Avraham will give us Part II of his fascinating presentation about
how and why our ancestors moved around the diaspora. He will focus
on the European Jewish communities that existed in parallel with
those located in Israel and then Babylonia. He will discuss how
they were first established and why they did not become major
centers until the 10th century. Understanding Jewish migration
patterns, and the circumstances under which they operated, will
grant us a deeper understanding of our own collective Jewish
istory, and a greater appreciation for our Jewish family history.
Avraham Groll is the Director of Business Operations for JewishGen.
After studying in Israel at Yeshivat Ohr Yerushalayim, he received
a BS >from Ramapo College, and an MBA >from Montclair State
University. He is currently pursuing an MA in Judaic Studies at
Touro College. He is married to Dina, and has three children,
Chaim, Miriam and Shifra.
Refreshments are served. All are welcome.
