Bela Guttmann (1899 Budapest - 1981 Vienna) #hungary

rjfriedman@...
 

David Bolchover (david@davidbolchover.com), a writer based in London,
is currently working on a biography of soccer coach Bela Guttmann
(1899 Budapest - 1981 Vienna), a Holocaust survivor whose team won the
European Cup in the early 1960s.=20

Mr. Bolchover would appreciate hearing >from anyone who can help answer
several questions he has about Gutmann, or suggest avenues for
research:

--Where was he >from 1939-43? Gutmann was in Budapest in 1939, and in
1944 was hiding in Ujpest, and then in a labor camp in Budapest. He
was probably also in or near Budapest in the intervening years, but we
don=B4t know that for sure. Some commentators have suggested that he was
in Switzerland, but I found no evidence to support that conclusion. =20

--When and where did Guttmann and Mariann Moldovan, who met in Ujpest
in 1939, get married? Biographical sources say 1942, but she was a
non-Jew and intermarriage was against the law in Hungary >from August
1941.

--Where did his father (Moshe) Abraham Guttmann die? He was born in
Tisza=FAjhely in 1866/7 and was alive at the outbreak of WW2 but simply
disappeared.

--Did his brother Armin Guttmann (1893 Budapest - 1945 Buchenwald)
have a wife and children, and if so, what happened to them?

--When was Mariann Moldovan born? Her father was Pal Moldovan. She
lived in Ujpest before the war and died in 1997 in Vienna.

--When did Guttmann become an Austrian citizen? (I think it was in the
1950s, and I have submitted a request to the Austrian authorities to
find this out, so may well find this out myself).

--Who, if anyone, inherited their estate when Mariann died?

Please reply to David Bolchover <david@davidbolchover.com>.

Thanks!

Jewish Genealogical Society of Buffalo (JGSB) Speakers Program, April 17th #general

Kathi Freudenheim
 

Speaker: Henry Wellisch >from Toronto, Canada
Topic: "Henry's Escape >from Europe in 1940"
Date: Sunday, April 17, 2016
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Temple Beth Zion, Aaron and Bertha Broder Center for Jewish
Education, 700 Sweet Home Rd, Amherst, NY, 14226

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Buffalo and the Holocaust Resource
Center are hosting renowned lecturer, Henry Wellisch to speak at
Temple Beth Zion's Aaron and Bertha Broder Center for Jewish
Education, 700 Sweet Home Road, Amherst, NY, 14226 on Sunday, April
17th at 2:00 PM. His presentation will be "Henry's Escape >from Europe
in 1940."

Following the German invasion of Austria and the severe restrictions
that were placed on Jews, the Wellisch's were unable to leave Vienna.
Threatened with deportation, the family joined one of the "illegal"
transports to Palestine. Upon arrival, the British would not allow the
passengers to enter Palestine. Henry was then interned on the island
nation of Mauritius, west of Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean.

Subsequently, despite the danger, Henry joined the British forces in
the Jewish Brigade and returned to Europe to assist trapped Jews to
flee the Nazis. After the War, he fought with the Israeli Army in the
War of Independence.

Henry is a member and a past president of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of (Toronto) Canada and traced his family back into the middle
of the 18th century. He has published numerous articles on Jewish
genealogical research, lectured on various genealogical and historical
subjects, and contributed to several websites.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments
provided.

For more information you may
contact Suzette Stringer at srstringer@verizon.net.

Tykocin Yizkor Book Project #poland

George Cabat <g38cabat@...>
 

To Researchers with family >from Tykocin and nearby towns
Subject: Tykocin Yizkor Book Project

My paternal grandmother, Anne Goldstein Kabat, was born in
Tykocin, Poland, a shtetl 17 miles WNW of Bialystok. She and two
brothers, Siskind and Eliezer Olsztejn, were the only members of
their father's, Avram Olsztejn's, extended family that were still
living after WWII; at least eighteen family members died in the Shoah.

JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project contains Sefer Tiktin, a memorial book
about Tykocin, Poland that has been only partially translated into English.
See
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Tykocin/Tykocin.html
for what has been translated thus far.

I have agreed to be project coordinator because I believe in Sefer
Tiktin's importance to current and future generations who are not
fluent in Hebrew or Yiddish. Your children and grandchildren should
know where their ancestors came >from and the history and daily life
of their ancestors' home shtetl.

Written after World War II by emigres and Holocaust survivors, Sefer
Tiktin contains narratives of the history of the town, details of daily
life, religious figures, religious and secular education, and stories
of the major intellectual and Zionist movements of the 20th century.
The list of martyrs and names of residents are of tremendous
genealogical value, as often the names of individuals who were taken
to extermination camps or died in the forests are not recorded elsewhere.

Donations to complete the book are tax deductible (at least for US
citizens) and can be made through:
www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Scroll down to Tykocin.
Donations of any size would be appreciated. However, if you would like
to pay for a complete translation of a particular article, please contact
me. I'll let you know if the article is still available for adoption and
the cost for translation. To send me a message, click on my name found at
the top of the Tykocin Yizkor Book page. A mission statement for the
project can be found by clicking 'Tykocin' on the donation page.

Donations of any size would be appreciated. However, if you would like
to pay for a complete translation of a particular article, please contact
me. I'll let you know if the article is still available for adoption and
the cost for translation. To send me a message, click on my name found at
the top of the Tykocin Yizkor Book page. A mission statement for the
project can be found by clicking 'Tykocin' on the donation page.
