ISO of travel guide or agency in Lithuania specializing in Jewish heritage issues #lithuania

thirst4wholeness <thirst4wholeness@...>
 

Hello!

I am traveling to Lithuania in a couple of days, and I wonder if
anyone here could recommend a knowledgeable local travel guide or
agency specifically dealing with the issues of Jewish heritage in
Lithuania (preferably, an archivist or historian by training).
Specifically, I am interested in Kaunas, Jurbarkas and Siauliai areas.
I'd like to visit Vilnius as well. The guide would need to speak
either English or Russian fluently as I don't speak Lithuanian.

Also, if anyone has any connections in the Lithuanian archives,
especially KRA, I would appreciate if you could put me in touch with
these people.

Thanks in advance!

Best,

Kate

POLAK from borsa-kiryat yam #hungary

Toivykahan@...
 

Hi everyone,
I recently found out that my great grandfather had a uncle and his daughter who survived the war and lived in Israel.
His name was shmiel zev polak,
He was born in Borsa Romania,
His father my great great grandfather was Elye Polak.
I found out about this uncle by searching on the yad vashem website he submitted records for his parents,
On dose records he signed his name shmiel polak >from kiryat yam,
But I found a gravestone named shmiel zev Ben Elya polak which is probably his gravestone because my great grandfather had a brother with the name shmiel zev.
His daughter I also found on the yad vashem records her name tzpore grinberg also lived in kiryat yam.
I was not able to find anything else,
i don't know how to proceed, is it possible to get records >from the government in Israel?
i would like to find his family
Thanks

Toivy Kahan

Seeking Information on Anna KATZ - Brooklyn, NY - Thank you all! #galicia

Joyce Eastman
 

I wanted to thank everyone who responded to my original e-mail seeking
information about Anna Katz, who was noted on my uncle's request for
immigration in Vienna, Austria in 1938 as his "aunt" living in Brooklyn, NY
- previously unknown to any of us in our WILDER family. It now appears
from information received >from the many people who replied to my
inquiry, that Anna Katz (born Honig recte Wilder) is in fact the sister of
my paternal grandfather, Salomon Wolf Wilder. I am in the process of
gathering more documentation >from IKG-Wien regarding Anna Katz as
well as her daughter Hesie, who both resided in Vienna, Austria prior to
their departure for the US in 1920. IKG-Wien has been an invaluable
resource in the past to find out more about my paternal grandparents
and their family by providing documentation not only of their existence,
but also about the fate they met during the Holocaust.

Many thanks to all of you for your diligence and the information you
provided, and a special thanks to Barbara Zimmer for the extensive
information she provided to me that will definitely assist me with my
inquiry to IKG-Wien.

These digests are an invaluable resource, and the people who read them
are a great help in finding information that you might never have found
on your own.
