Prague police prison camps (Rais-School?) #austria-czech

library@...
 

Since May 1945 some of the elementsary schools in Prague became centers
for DP / returnees >from the camps. That could be the case also for the
school of J.V.Rais (named after a Czech writer) located at Vinohradska
street today (earlier Foche's street, then Schwerin street during nazi
occupation, then Stalin's street in 1950ties.

Searching: Lilli (Lily), daughter of Emma (nee Krause) and Otto Heller #austria-czech

tomnavon@...
 

Dear friends and colleagues,

As part of my research about Otto Heller (1897-1945), the Austrian
communist of Jewish origin, I am looking for a contact with his only
daughter Lilli, or any of her descendants or relatives.

Lilli (or Lily) was born probably in the late 1920's. In the late
1930's she was in exile in France together with her parents. In 1943
Otto was deported to Auschwitz, and Lilli with her mother Emma to
Ravensbrueck (a women concentration camp in Germany). Otto did not
survive, but Lilli and Emma were liberated and came back to live in
Paris.

Since the information about Heller is scarce - any connection to the
family could be very helpful.

Please pass this message over to anyone that might have any idea how
to reach Lilli or other relatives.

If you have any information that could lead to Lilli, or another
relative - please contact me through tomnavon@gmail.com

Gratefully,
Tom Navon

Memorial Wall in Pinkus Synagogue, Prague #austria-czech

macgregor.eve@...
 

As I posted this request in 2011, without any response., I am
reposting in the hope that some information is available..
Thank You in anticipation.

Having visited the Pinkus Synagogue in Prague I was Very Moved and
impressed with the detailed Information of names of the 77297 victims
displayed on the walls.
But I was disappointed not to be able to find some of my family
listed. And have subsequently found out additional members whom may
have been listed.

Does anyone know, if there is an list off all these names available.
Or >from where these names and details were obtained and if we are
able to access this information on line. As I live in Australia, I
will most likely not have another opportunity to visit
Prague again.

I have searched the Yad Vashem website but still have names missing.

(Austria) Legislation In Parliament Permitting Dual Citizenship for the Descendants of Austrian Holocaust Survivors #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Upon reading the article in JC News about Austria preparing to offer
citizenship to Holocaust victim's descendants, referring to a statement by
Austrian Chancellor Kurz, I contacted the Austrian Counsel General to the
United States in Washington D.C., Josef Prelec for confirmation.
See: https://tinyurl.com/y7qz56ef original url:
https://www.thejc.com/news/world/austria-to-offer-passports-to-holocaust-vic
tims-children-and-grandchildren-sebastian-kurz-confirms-1.471942 .

Counsel General Prelec advised me that according to the information
published on the website of the Austrian Parliament, an amendment of the
Austrian Citizenship Law was introduced as a Private Members' Bill on 25
October 2018 (see
https://www.parlament.gv.at/PAKT/VHG/XXVI/A/A_00438/index.shtml). While he
is unable to say when the new regulations will be implemented, the
legislative process for granting citizenship to descendants of Austrian
Victims of the Holocaust are underway.

The aforementioned link to the Austrian Parliament is only in German. It
will open to a page that gives information on the bill and another pdf with
the bill- also in German. You can translate the bill by copying and pasting
the words into a translation service such as google translate,
https://translate.google.com. The bill is Citizenship Act 1985, amendment
(438 / A). It is very short and basically says to amend the Citizenship Act
of 1985 permitting dual citizenship to " the Victims of National Socialism
of Austria the present laudable Application should be taken without further
delay". It has been assigned to the Internal Affairs Committee and the
author of the bill is by Member Stephanie Krisper. The bill does not
enumerate which descendants even though the JC Article says children and
grandchildren.

Please do not ask me for any further information as this is all I know as of
November 5, 2018, the date of Counsel General Prelec's email response to me
and the above is all that is on the Parliament's website as of this posting.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2018 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I could not send out this Yizkor Book Project report without relating
to the recent horrendous murders in Pittsburgh. In a project which deals
intrinsically with the tragic consequences of Jewish hatred, it is always
disturbing to see that this same senseless hatred continues to this very
day. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families of the victims and,
in fact, to all the Jewish community of Pittsburgh and pray that events
of this kind don't reoccur there and anywhere else.

And now to the report. Whilst this month we can't announce the completion
of a Yizkor book translation, I can say that there are several that are
just a whisker's way >from completion. I'm quite certain that I will be
able to pass on good news about several books in coming reports.

I am pleased, however, to announce that the Yizkor Books in Print Project
recently published the "Book of Stryj" on Stryj, Ukraine. The book was
coordinated over the years by Mike Kalt and its translation encouraged
vigorously by Uriel Zur Shutzer z"l >from the Stryj organization in Israel
who sadly passed away before the project was completed. In the final
stages of this project, we were extremely fortunate that Susan Rosin
stepped up and took on the considerable task of translating a major part
of this book, enabling its completion and now, its publishing.

Another published book made available recently by the YBIP Project is
"We Remember Lest the World Forget" covering the Holocaust in Belarus
and, in particular, the unique history of the Minsk Ghetto. The
translation of the original Russian book was facilitated by The Together
Plan, a UK Charity, and was kindly presented to the YB Project to be
published. Last month, the book was also made available online and
appears in our Translations Index under "Minsk, Belarus". Purchase
details of both of these books may be found via the link the Yizkor
books in Print link appearing at the end of this report, as does the
link to our Translations Index.

A recent addition to the list of our Translation Funds is the book
"Memorial Book of the Community of Siedlce" covering Siedlce, Poland.
This translation fund, like the many others, is our way of enabling
those with family connections and interest in a particular community,
to take part in a group effort to financially support the translation
of the book relating to its history and people. A link list to this
fund and all the other current funds appears at the end of this report
and please see if you are able to contribute to one of these projects
providing very unique information on our lost communities.


And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during

Boris Berko WOLSKI and Moise TCHERNIAKOWSKY #france

Lemberski Evelyne
 

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am looking for the date of birth and death for Boris Berko WOLSKI born in 1896 in Brest LITOWSK who is one of the founders of the school colony and founder of the friendly Brest Litowsk. He departed Casablanca on board the liner Guin to join the United States on 30/07/1941 and arrived at the port of New York on 15/08/1941.

According to a ministerial decree of 03/11/1942 his travel agency license was withdrawn to Boris WOLSKI. His travel agency was called "the tourist" and was located at 9 boulevard Saint Martin in Paris.

I am looking for the date of death of Moise TCHERNIAKOWSKY born 30 October 1879 in Brest Litowsk. I also would like to know where this man is buried.

Thanking you for your help,

Request of information about my grand-mother NACHA WOLMAN BERNARD #poland

Sarah Mayer <sarahmayer22@...>
 

Dear fellow jewish genealogy subscripters.

I am looking for information about the family of my grand-mother Nacha
Bernard born Wolman in Gabin (Gombin) Poland in 1907.

She was the daughter of Tobjasz Wolman and Balka Goldman. I don't know
if she had siblings. She moved to France and married my grand-father
Raphael Bernard in Paris in January 1931. He was born in Wloclawek
Poland in 1904. Both of them were deported >from France to Auschwitz
where they died in 1942.They had two children. My father was the only
survivor of the family.

I would like to know if anyone has information about the Goldman and
Wolman families >from Gabin, especially about possible siblings or
cousins of my grand-mother. I found that a Wolman family >from Gabin
emigrated to the USA at the beginning of the 20th century but I don't
the relationship with my grand-mother.

I posted the only photograph that I have of her. It was taken in Paris
in 1932. On the right is my grand-father Raphael and on the left his
brother Luzer that also died in Auschwitz after being deported from
