BIALYGen Website Expanded #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear BIALYGenners:

On 31 January, I announced the launching of the BIALYGen website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm. Many of the
sections are works in progress. Little by little, we are making progress
in filling out the website.

I am pleased to announce the following additions to the website:

BIALYGen Publications
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Publications section has been initiated. Here you will find a
bibliography of books, videos and other publications on the BIALYGen
Region, including short synopses where available. We are asking members
to provide more titles for this effort and to provide short synopses for
books and videos already entered. See Rakovska, Pu'ah, "My Life as a
Radical Jewish Women: Memoirs of a Zionist feminist in Poland" for an
example of such a synopsis.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Publications.htm

Regional Liquidation Office in Bialystok
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sidney Zabludoff has located microfilms at the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, which deal with post WWII claims of
seized property in the Bialystok area. Sidney has created a surname
index of individuals or heirs >from the BIALYGen region - Bialystok,
Bielsk Podlaski, and Sokolka districts - who in the early years after
WWII went to the local court to reclaim property seized by the Nazis and
others. The index also covers the Augustow district. Other districts of
Grajewo, Lomza, Suwalki, and Wysokie Mazowiecki have not been indexed,
but are catalogued by USHMM microfilm reel number and record number. For
each name, there are a number of legal documents filed with or by the
court. For those interested in obtaining individual files (in Polish)
that are identified in this surname index, Sidney will provide copies
for $15 per file, which will be donated to BIALYGen. See the website for
more information.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/RLO_USHMM.htm

Holocaust Survivor Testimonies Catalogue
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Jewish Historical Institute (JHI) in Warsaw holds 7,300 early
testimonies by Jews who survived the Holocaust and some Righteous
Gentiles who provided comfort to Jews. JHI has published three volumes
of summaries of this collection entitled "Holocaust Survivor Testimonies
Catalogue" covering 3,000 of the 7,300 testimonies. We have extracted
and indexed by surname all those testimonies of people >from the BIALYGen
region or people who spent part of the War in this region. The index
provides name of the person testifying, birthplace and year when
available, and places mentioned in testimony as well as document number
and language of testimony. See the website for more information.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Testimonies.htm

Bialystok Cemeteries
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Cemetery section has its first entry. Here you will find a summary
of the Jewish Cemeteries of Bialystok written by Tomasz Wisniewski along
with photographs of those Cemeteries in contemporary times.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/BialCem.htm

BIALYGen Towns Archival Data
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The BIALYGen table of towns has been updated to show other records
available at Archives in Poland and Belarus as reported by Miriam Weiner
in her Routes to Roots Foundation Archive Database
(www.rtrfoundation.org).
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Towns.htm

Tykocin Links
~~~~~~~~~~
The BIALYGen Links section has been updated with links for Tykocin.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Links.htm

I hope this information is of value and/or interest to you. I am sure
many of you have materials of interest to the rest of us. Please contact
Sidney Zabludoff at SJZ@intergate.com or myself at
Bialystoker@comcast.net if you can help.

Western and Eastern Galicia divisions - understanding the division and terms #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

Dear Galitzyaners,

1 Introduction

It is my understanding (please correct me if I am wrong) that the terms of
Eastern and Western Galicia are fairly new, since I could not locate
references to such geographical division in pre WWI Austrian sources.

It appears that the adopted line dividing East and West sides of the old
Crown territory has been drawn alongside the post WWII Poland/USSR (Ukraine)
border.

Please refer to the map on the link shown below which exhibits this line
(shown in pinkish color)

http://tinyurl.com/49bzp


2. Interwar (1918-1939) Poland division of ex Polish Galicia territory

Malopolska (Little Poland) historical region includes territories with the
main towns of Krakow, Tarnow and Nowy Sacz.

In 1918 Poland has invaded newly established West Ukarinian Republic and has
captured all ex Polish Galicia territories which included Lwow, Stanislawow
and Tarnopol regions. Those territories have been renamed Malopolska
Wschodnia (East Little Poland) and original Malopolska has been christened
Malopolska Zachodnia (West Little Poland).

This is an important issue since Lwow Province and its capital city located
in the Eastern Galicia covers large part of the Western Galicia including
major Jewish towns of the Western Galicia such as Rzeszow, Przemysl, Sanok,
Jaroslaw, Krosno, Lisko, Brzozow, Nisko, Kolbuszowa, Strzyzow, Lancut and
Tarnobrzeg.

Following war with Russia in 1920 and the peace treaty (Leon Trotsky - Brest
Litowsk), Poland has also captured all Wolyn territory, Polesie (Belarus)
and the large part of the newly established Lithuanian Republic with its
capital Wilno (Vilna - Vilnius).

Please refer to Poland 1921 map showing Poland in its 1921 borders, incl.
incorporated territories in the East, part of the Upper Silesia and "Polish
corridor" with access to the Baltic Sea (Gdansk-Danzig received the status
of the Free City).

http://www.pgsa.org/images/pol1921_disp.gif

3. Kresy

Kresy (The border lands) is another term used to describe the territories of
the Poland Lithuanian Commonwealth (mainly Podolia and Wolynia regions of
Ukraine) which have been successfully colonized thanks mainly to the Jewish
participation in 16th and 17th centuries.
Kresy are also often used to describe also territories of the western part
of Galicia. It is not geographically and historically correct but
nonetheless it is used generally in Poland. People >from Kresy are known as
"Kresowiaki" (border lands inhabitants).

4. Zabuzhanie

Another term describing people that have originated >from the "other" (east)
side of the Bug River. Bug River divides Poland >from modern, Belarus and
part of Ukraine (Wolyn) per 1945 borders division but "over Bug" term is
also used for any other territories east >from the modern Poland borders.
Archives in Warsaw that contains the vital records >from the east (re:
agreement with Ukraine in 1945) are also known as Archiwum Zabuzanskie.

Re: How to find photo/painting of a particular rabbi? #galicia

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

I am trying to locate either a photograph or a painting/drawing of Rabbi
Simon SCHREIBER of Krakow, Poland.
I've seen his photo in few books. I'm quite sure that
its found also in the new edition of "Ktov Zot Zikaron"
(Hebrew), which was republished by "Machon Zikaron",
(a research institute of Hungarian Rabbis and communities, which
is located in Bnei-Brak, Israel)

This book is about the SOFER - SCHREIBER family. there are many
photos of family members (including women) and other Hungarian rabbis.

Please contact me privately if you need a scan of the photo.

Regards,
Tomer Brunner, Israel.

years old, and the son of Naphtali MENDELOWITZ. He came >from Slonim,
and was staying with his sister, Mary, who had arrived several years
earlier. He may also have had a brother Eleazer who came to this
country after him.

I am trying to locate their descendants. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmen of Chausy #rabbinic

I am looking for information about Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman of Chausy,
Mogilev Gubernia, and his family.

He lived at the time of the Vilna Gaon and was a noted Kabbalist. He
is mentioned in Betsalel Landau's "Hagaon Hekhasid Mivilnah" in the
additional notes as being the "grandfather" of the "Leshem". In a
book about Rav Kook it states that the "Leshem" was a descendant of
the Ari.

A descendant of Kalonymus Kalmen, Rabbi Aharon Meir ALTHSULER, who
was a Shokhet in Mariupol (Ekaterinoslav Gubermia) published in 1893
"Klalei Hatkhalat Hakhokhma", drawing on kabbalah texts and
referring to his ancestor Kalonymus Kalman.

Genealogies of the ALTSHULER families do not mention Kalonymus
Kalman. Yet there was an ALTSHULER who was Rabbi in Chausy,
(Gottlieb's "Ohalei Shem"), Rabbi Shlomo-Zalman ben Yehoshua
ALTSHULER, born 1840. His ancestry is given there extensively,
but no mention of KK.

I can find very few references to KK. "Otsar Harabanim" states that
he was a scholar in Vilna (1770). Yet there is no mention of him in
"Kiriah Neemanah" or "Ir Vilna". Vilensky's "Khassidim Umisnagdim"
lists him in the index, but he does not appear in the text.

Any help will be appreciated, either about Kalonymus Kalman or the
genealogy of the ELIASHIV and ALTSHULER families.
