Viewmate Translation Requests - Yiddish #general

Rusty Wilson
 

We recently uncovered the proverbial treasure trove of old photos in an attic.
Many of these were sent >from the family in Ukraine and Galicia and were used
as post cards. In most cases, the writing on the backs are the last remnants
of these family members and the only remaining chance to learn their names.

I've posted some on Viewmate and would be deeply appreciative to anyone who
can read Yiddish and could provide translations.

Thank you.

Help with a Hebrew word #general

Martha Paradies <meparadies@...>
 

I am reviewing a story of an ancestor about his life in Germany up to his
departure to Israel. The story was originally written in Hebrew and translated
into English. He mentions he was put in an "orphanage" at age seven. His mother
had passed the year before and his uncle became his "guardian". He was
constantly in contact with his mothers family, his grandmother and aunt. His
father did not play a big role in his life.

I am finding it difficult to believe he was in an "orphanage", as he describes
it as being small, 20 to 30 children ages 6-14. He was very happy there.

I am suspecting something was lost in the translation and wondering if the
Hebrew word for Orphanage could mean another type of school or institution?

I Know I have been absent >from this forum for quite a while. I am, finally,
writing my book on the family as I believe I have found all the relatives left
that I can find!

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Need help locating my grandmother's grave in the Jewish Cemetery in Dusseldorf #germany

Elaine Berghausen
 

My maternal grandmother, Johanna MORITZ (SCHERBEL) died in 1922 and is
buried in the Jewish cemetery in Dusseldorf. I have not found her
grave listed in the JOWBR database nor in other online data bases. My
uncle visited his mother's gravesite in the 1960s and took a picture
of it so I know it was still intact then.

I plan to visit Dusseldorf in 2018 and want to visit her grave but
haven't been able to locate any information that would help me locate
her grave site. The JOWBR data base states that the Jewish Cemetery
in Dusseldorf is a separate space inside the Nordfriedhof on
Ulmenstrasse 236. It also states that Mr. Dieter Peters of Aachen,
Germany has been the cemetery representative and relationship manager
of the Landesverbandes der Judischen Gemeinden von Nordrhein.

Does anyone have an email address for Mr. Peters or another contact
that could help me?

David ABRAMOWITZ or variant.-New Haven/Boston 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My greatgrandfather's brother, a David ABRAMOWITZ left New Haven, Ct. as a
youth (age not sure) to find his fortune in Boston during the latter part
of the 19th cent. People in our family believe he changed his name possibly
to ABRAMS but it is far >from definite. By the 1930s he supposedly was a
senior executive of a department store in Boston and had a winter home in
Florida.

Besides my greatgrandfather and another brother Kalman, David had a sister
Sarah who married a divorcee by the name of COHEN. They lived (or
vacationed?) in Coney Island, NY, during the 1930s.

I would be very happy to connect with descendants of the above David and
Sarah. I am in touch with descendants of their brother Kalman. If anyone is
a descendant of David and/or Sarah or knows anyone connected to these
families I would be very happy to hear.

I understand that there are David ABRAMSs in Boston today, may be they
are connected?

Gmar tov, chag sameach and Shabbat Shalom to all.

Oyneg Shabbes Catalog #poland

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

After hearing Samuel Kassow's brilliant lecture at Seattle IAJGS 2016
conference [in memory of the late Pamela Weisberger z"l] and reading his
excellent book "Who will write our history" about the Emmanuel Ringelblum
Archives ("Oyneg Shabbes") created during Warsaw Ghetto, I asked myself
whether the Oyneg Shabbes archives (held at the Jewish Historical Institute
in Warsaw) do not also hold any interesting items on a few Polish shtetls
I am interested with, as the book says there are.

It turned out that a detailed inventory of the content of the Oyneg Shabbes
archives was published in a 2009 book, with index of places and individuals.
The book is now available in PDF format at the USHMM web site at

https://www.ushmm.org/research/publications/academic-publications/full-list-
of-academic-publications/the-warsaw-ghetto-oyneg-shabesringelblum-archive-ca
talog-and-guide

You can either search the PDF file directly or go to the index lists. I
found indeed a few items related to the shtetls I am searching and - as an
extra - another archive item mentioning the name of a second cousin who was
in Warsaw Ghetto. You may check for your own towns and families too.

Next step is to consult these documents. I am not sure if a copy of the
entire Oyneg Shabbes archives is also available at USHMM, I believe there is
none in Yad Vashem. Otherwise, there is Warsaw IAJGS 2018... If someone
knows, please let me know.
