Marcella Shames
 

Hi List

Looking information on a Jewish soldier, Samuel SIEFF.

A link I found shows a Samuel Sieff serving in WWII but my Samuel would
have been in his late 50's by then ..so I think this is the wrong person.

Family has it that he fought in the Boer War..


Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks and Happy New Year.

Re: frenchsig digest: January 21, 2019 #france

from Website Our Immigrant Ancestors >from Germany and Alsace (1830-1883), http://smithancestry.com/surnames/immfams.htm the following is stated regarding Alsace's geographic connection
Many of our ancestors came >from a German-speaking region known as Alsace.
In the early 1800's, Alsace was part of the nation of France, as it is today,
although the people of Alsace spoke a dialect of German called "Alsacien.
" After the defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871,
Alsace and the neighboring German-speaking region of Lorraine, together
referred to as "Alsace-Lorraine," were annexed to Germany. Following World
War I (1914-1918), Alsace and Lorraine once again rejoined France.

Book "In The Nesvizh Ghetto and Naliboki Forest" by David Farfel translated into English is available #belarus

Steve Stein
 

I am pleased to announce that the English translation of the memoir of David
Farfel, "In The Nesvizh Ghetto and Naliboki Forest," which I announced in a
post a couple of months ago, has been published and is available for
purchase. It was translated by Benjamin Schuster, and edited by Zvi
Farfel, the author's son. It is the only authorized version of the book.

This book was originally published in Hebrew in 1995. It is an important
work >from both a historical and genealogical perspective as a first-hand
account of the author's experiences before, during and after the war as a
family member, worker, resident of the Nesvizh ghetto, partisan fighter, and
resident of DP camps, and mentions many individuals both well-known and not
well-known involved in the author's journey. It centers on the author's life
in Nesvizh, Belarus (Poland before the war) but is relevant to anyone
interested in the region or in matters regarding the partisans.

To obtain the book, please contact Zvi Farfel at farfel@post.tau.ac.il.
