Re: Abraham and Benjamin SINGER, authors of "Ha-Madrik" #general

Vivian Kahn
 

I am connected to Abraham and Benjamin SINGER through my father's paternal and
maternal lines.

The brothers are my second cousins three times removed as descendants of
Yechezkel haLevi LOWY/ NICOLAUER, who was my 4G grandfather. Rabbi Yechzkel
Wolf SEGEL, author of "Toras Yechezkel," was leader of the Jewish community of
Hunfalva/Hunsdorf, Hungary (now Huncovce, Slovakia) >from 1818 to 1824 and
founded a yeshiva there. He was born in Liptoszentmiklos, Lipto, Hung.
(Liptovske Mikulas, Slov.) Chaye Feigele LOWY, daughter of Rabbi J. Samuel
(Aharon Joseph Samuel) LOWY, was his granddaughter and 1st cousin of my 2 G
grandmother Eleanora SPITZ POLACSEK.

Chaye Feigele LOWY was probably born in Trencsen, Hung. / Trencin, Slovakia,
where her Rabbi LOWY and his wife Juditha lived until their deaths in 1882 and
1876 respectively. Benjamin Wolf was born in Varpalota, Veszprem, Hung. in 1855.
He married Margit Mindel MOSKOVITS b. Sarospatak, Hung., whose father Ignatz/
Izsak MOSKOVITS was a brother of my paternal great-grandfather Markusz. Benjamin
and Margit had four children I know of Ernest Jeremiah, Adele, Fani and Irma.

Biographical information about the SINGER family can be found in Abraham
Singer's Torat Yehezkel, published in Pecs, 1899.

Michael Rony and I are both researching the SINGER/SANGER family >from

Judith Singer asked about the father of Abraham and Benjamin Singer.

He was Rabbi Pesach aka Fulop Singer (umlaut over the u in Fulop), b. in 1816
in Uhersky Brod (now in the Czech Republic), d. 1898, buried in Spisske
Podhradie (now in Slovakia).

He was rabbi of rabbi of Varpalota (1847-187?) then Kirchdorf aka Szepesujfalu
aka Zips.

His wife was Chaye Feigele Halevy Loewy. Her grandfather was Benjamin Wolf Loew.
So Abraham and Benjamin were the latter's great-grandsons.

(Poland) Poland Places Names of Auschwitz Database of Prison Guards Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The British Broadcasting System (BBC) posted that Poland has put online the
names of the Nazi SS commanders and guards at Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp
in German occupied Poland. The database includes names, place and date of
birth, nationality, military service and where possible a photograph. If the
person stood trial, judicial documents are also included.

Information was gathered by Poland, Germany, Austria and the United States.
This was put online by the Polish Institute of National Remembrance (INR).
This includes about 9,000 names almost all German. It is Poland's their hope
that posting the names to prove that referring to Auschwitz as a Polish-run
camp in incorrect. The database was gradually extended to include the
information concerning the personnel of other German concentration camps,
finally reaching the number of 25,000 records, of which 9,686 were related
to the Auschwitz concentration camp personnel.

The new database is being made accessible in five languages

Shtetl vs. Dorf #general

Paul Berman
 

Messages to this discussion group often use the term "shtetl" when
apparently referring to villages rather than towns in Eastern Europe.

The author Irving Stone addressed this term in his introduction to his
magnificent history of the Jewish socialist movement in early
twentieth century in New York City, "The World of Our Fathers",
published in the 1950's. He wrote that the term "shtetl" was (and
still is) commonly used erroneously for smallish villages when the
correct term was "dorf". The word "shtetl" properly referred to larger
communities such as towns.

Re: Have you heard of Polanyu? #general

tom
 

Just one small correction: the term "dayan" means judge, almost certainly a
rabbi and member of a beth din (rabbinic court). And as a surname, it indicates
only that they are descended >from one, as the job is not considered hereditary
(even though sons often did follow in their father's footsteps).

A Kohen (priestly caste descended >from Aaron, who served in the temple in
Jerusalem) is not allowed to enter a cemetery, but there is no such restriction
on rabbis (otherwise they wouldn't be able to officiate at funerals). You will
probably also find that their Hebrew name includes "haKohen" at the end.

Entering a cemetery has nothing to do with being a "dayan".

because they could not enter. This makes sense, if they were "dayans."

Yad Vashem New Online Exhibit: Last Letters From the Holocaust:1941 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Yad Vashem has placed thousands of personal letters >from their archives
-some viewable for the first time-on their website. This is the first in a
series of exhibits featuring last letters. The exhibit presents 9 letters
written by children and adults written in 1941 to their loved ones during
the Holocaust. The letters are >from Poland, Latvia, France, Austria,
Ukraine, Yugoslavia and Romania. They were written while in their homes,
ghettos, in hiding or fleeing. There are photos of the people in the
exhibit 9 letters. To view the exhibit see:

http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhibitions/last-letters/1941/index.asp#/overview

To search the archives for the 1,000 plus personal letters go to:
http://collections1.yadvashem.org/search.asp?lang=ENG&;rsvr=8

This is the online catalogue of the Yad Vashem archive. It only includes 20
percent of the archival collection. (You can also access this area of the
website >from the Yad Vashem home page by clicking on "Documents Archive"
under Digital Collections.)
This will open a search page. For "Search Profile" make certain it lists
"Documents Archive" If that is not what appears, then go to the drop down
box and select "Documents Archive".
Where it says "Search for" type in o.75. The first character is the letter
"o" not the number zero.
Under fields to search check off Record Group or title-the most important
thing is to have o.75 in the "search for" block.
Click on "search"
Be patient it takes a brief while for the website to respond - it may be due
to website traffic or my computer when I tried it out.
In the search results, a list of over 1,000 titles/links come up. Click on
the hypertext link you want to see, and then that particular post card and
letter information will come up. If that document has been scanned an icon
will appear to click below the narrative which is the scanned file. Click
on the icon. When that opens and if there are multiple pages there will be
arrows on the upper right to click to advance to the next document. Not all
of the documents are scanned as yet.

Thank you to Zvi Bernhardt, Yad Vashem for providing the instructions on how
to find the documents. The article mentioned above focused solely on the 9
documents in the exhibit , which are well worth visiting, but if one wants
to search the remaining documents, we needed the additional information.
