ViewMate translations requested-Polish and Russian #general

I've posted a few vital records for translation. I do not need a
word-for-word translation, but am interested in every morsel of detail,
nothing is too "insignificant!" I am in the process of sorting out the
family relationships of a few generations back, when it seems there was a
short list of about ten names that were recycled among the families and so
it gets a bit confusing. Many thanks to those who have translated for me
up till now!

Yizkor Book Project, February 2018 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final translations
of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.
- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book). Sadly, the
coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no longer with us.
Over the years, both professional and volunteer translators contributed
to this project that he initiated and once again, Sara and Yocheved
played an integral role in seeing it through to its successful completion.
- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust) This project was coordinated by the
remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets
District Research Group. They already have a number of other completed
projects under their belt and we salute them for their dedication in
seeing yet another complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural communities
that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th century which
make for interesting and enlightening reading. In addition, I would also
like to point out an entry that was added about the Cluj District >from
the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania". This entry, in
particular, is of significance in that it covers quite a few small
communities >from that area, information about which is often difficult
to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum who
has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from the
Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew readers to
glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the book that
they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank Esther for the many
such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book in
Print Project and they are deserving of our grateful thanks. The book,
"Memorial Book of Nowy-Dwor", is a translation of the Yizkor book of
Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland. The number of published books continues to
grow and as we complete projects, as we have done in the past month, they
join as possible candidates for publishing. We do see a growing interest
in having and holding these unique books and they are even a unique gift
idea for the coming Pesach/Passover holiday. If you are interested in
seeing what books are available for purchase, please see the link at the
end of this report.

Which reminds me, if we don't "speak" before then, I do wish you and your
families a very memorable, warm and significant Pesach/Passover holiday.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in February.

We have added in 5 new entries:

Abbazia/Opatija #austria-czech

Traude Triebel
 

The Jewish Museum Eisenstadt updated their Souvenirs/Mitbringsel:

The Jewish cemetery of Abbazia / Opatija: Many Jewish families >from Hungary
or Austria lived or took a cure at the Austrian Riviera. And as with
Fiume, there are lots of names which we also know >from Budapest, Burgenland
and Vienna: Antonie BREINER and her Deutschkreutz-born husband Sigmund, who
ran two kosher hotels; Sigmund KURZ, the president of Abbazia's Jewish
community, married in Vienna and died in Abbazia at age 90; or the large
NADAS / NATHAN family: Bernard Nathan initiated the Holocaust memorial which
was inaugurated in 1955.
We have brought with us 44 photos of gravestones of Jewish families from
Abbazia and got to know their stories. And again, the Shoa is omnipresent:
In the index of persons there are 64 names of Jews who died in Abbazia and
the names of 52 Shoa victims (Livia LOEWY was only 4 years old, Berta
POLITZER was 88 years old).
