If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700's. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between1945-1970.

Call for Papers (Abstract Proposal System) #france

Dan Oren <iajgs2018@...>
 

The IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference is delighted to announce that the
Call-for-Papers (Abstract Proposal System) will be open for submittals
from 15 Nov 2017 through 31 Dec 2017. We will issue a formal
announcement when the actual opening occurs, but here is a brief
description of the types of presentations that we will be looking for:
1) Presentations: A one-hour timeslot dedicated to about 45
minutes of lecture with about 15 minutes of question & answers, with
PowerPoint, film or other illustrative component.
2) Short Presentations: A 30-minute timeslot dedicated to a
20-minute presentation on a novel genealogy research project that you
are working on that could benefit others: a slide show of your visit
to a shtetl; or the explanation of how you accomplished a genealogy
special find (like how you found your grandparents' marriage record
when everyone said it couldn't be done).
Note: It may be preferable for a BOF (Birds of a Feather Group) to
forgo having a BOF meeting this summer and instead use this 30-minute
format for a meeting of Landsleit to share a previous or prepare for
an upcoming shtetl trip.
3) Computer Workshop: A 2-hour program dedicated to a guided
tour of and training on how to use a website, function or software
application on a computer.
4) Panel Discussion: A one-hour timeslot dedicated to combining
several people or topics in an interactive format between panelists,
such as a discussion among experts in a related field.
This conference will take place in Warsaw; however, the presentations
most sought after might be focused on Resources, Empires, Jewish
Culture/History and Keepers of Jewish Communal Memory or Historic
Sites in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Program Committee will accept approximately 120 one-hour
lectures/panels and approximately 50 short presentations. The Abstract
Proposal System will be linked to the Conference home page
when the time comes. Stay tuned!

Does anyone recognize the photography studio stamp "LEONAR"? Is that stamp

Re: Yiddish to Hebrew names #general

Judith Singer
 

Hi - Etka is the diminutive form of Eta. According to the JewishGen
Given Names Database, there is no Hebrew equivalent for Eta: it is
from the Yiddish / German word for "noble". (It was not crucial that a
woman have a Hebrew name.)

I'm guessing that Mortek (which I haven't ever seen before) is a
variant of Mortke. Mortke is a diminutive form of the Hebrew name
Mordekhai.
