A dramatic event about Lodz #general

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Lodz Researchers in New York,

The new play by Rivka Bekerman-Greenberg, "Eavesdropping on Dreams" will have a
staged reading on Wednesday, May 28th at 8:00 PM The Jewish Community Center in
Manhattan 334 Amsterdam Avenue and 76th Street, New York, NY

Those of you who saw an earlier reading of this play will see the revisions and
additions in this production. It is the story of three generations of women
affected by the Holocaust as they discover their mother's/grandmother's past as a
Holocaust survivor. It conveys the family dynamics, conflicts, and
cross-generational transmission of holocaust trauma, interweaving dreams and
historical material >from the Lodz ghetto.

For more information, see the flyer at: http://tinyurl.com/3394hh or
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/index.htm

I have no other connection with the play. Hope to see you there,

Regards,
Roni Seibel Liebowitz

Active Landsmanshaftn Societies? #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I am seeking information on what landsmanshaftn societys are still in existence,
whether they are active in the U.S., Israel, or elsewhere. A landsmanshaft is a
mutual aid society that is associated with a particular town or region, most often
(but not exclusively) in Eastern Europe. There were many, many such societies in
existence >from the very late nineteenth century to the mid twentieth century, but
due to various factors, very few are still extant.

Of course, when I speak of a society still being in existence, this can mean
different things to different people. Does the society meet yearly or do they just
have officers and perhaps just correspond with their members by email or regular
mail? Does the society put out an occasional or periodic online or paper newsletter
and send it out to their members? Also a society may still exist on paper, not be
active at all, and simply are hanging on to their existence by a thread.

I think it would be interesting for many of us to know how many "active"
landsmanshaftn there still are. Would you please me know privately whether you are
a member of such an active society, or know for a fact that such a society is
active? What is the name of the society, how many members do they have, who is in
charge, etc.? Unless the particular society has an objection, I can announce the
list of names of these active societies to our discussion group after a short
period of time.

I myself have recently become the First Vice-President of the United Zembrover
Society. I even put together an eight-page society newsletter for the society for
the first time. Though I never knew my paternal grandfather, I know that he was
from Zambrow, Poland. It certainly pleases me to no end that I can honor his memory
by becoming active in a society associated with the town of his birth.

Thanks for your help.

Best,
Steven Lasky

A Place of Remembrance at the Jewish cemetery in Dobra, Poland #general

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Dobra descendants, researchers, and friends,

I received good news >from Leon Weintraub in Sweden who is instrumental in planning
and soon will be realizing his dream of creating a Place of Rememberance in Dobra
(near Turek)for the Jewish population that once existed there. In this letter, he
reports about the progress of the Dobra Project.

The project to create a Place of Remembrance in Dobra is now very close to
completion. The fence around the Jewish Cemetery is already in place -and paid for!
He decided not to wait any longer for possible financial support >from the Jewish
Organizations he has been in contact with and shall finalize the completion of this
Place of Remembrance with his own financing.

Leon visited Dobra April 9 to 18 to first discuss further details with the Town
Mayor and Kazimierz Zasiadczyk, who is his legal representative, and then to sign
the contract with the constructor, after he had received a cost estimate for his
work. They then decided to begin the work and the main construction of the Memorial
will be ready by the end of May.

The Town Mayor and his Deputy decided that they and Leon shall meet again in June
to discuss practicalities like the invitations, the program for the opening
ceremony, and so forth. They even promised to arrange that the transfer of the
tombstones to the cemetery will take place during this time, i.e., while he is in
Dobra. The Town Mayor thinks that the best date for the opening ceremony would be
on Tuesday, August 19 and feels that all road works around and near the cemetery
will be finished by then.

After leaving Dobra, Leon visited Lodz and made the arrangements for the
inscriptions on the tables. He is now awaiting their cost estimate. Once he knows
how much this will be, they will decide a suitable date for applying the tables
onto the memorial.

We will be posting photos of this on the LARG website soon and hope to add more
once the ceremony takes place. A huge thank you and congratulations to Leon for
perservering with this project over the past several years.

All the best,
Roni

Families migrating to Palestine from Kalvarija #lithuania

Edna Hoover
 

I've been working on the HA-LEVI ROHALD branch of our family tree
for about 7 years now. I've searched the Internet exclusively and
maintained correspondence with other researchers in Israel. To date,
I've had no luck finding records for the Kalvarija ancestors below:

1. Hanokh Henokh HA-LEVI SHUSHAN Me-Kalvaria

Shapiro and one to Yaffe. Now it appears that these family names are also

Re: Contextual understanding of ozvegy and elvalt #hungary

Ilan Kozma <kozmai@...>
 

I have been doing transcription of Marriage records of 1881. The records
which I transcribed were clearer:
One record for example is: Ozv Gansl szul Grunwald Katalin.
In here it is clear that the word Ozv accompanies the married name, and
Grunwald is the maiden name.

I am transcribing Budapest marriage records for the All Hungarian

uncertain about how to interpret the meaning of what is written for a
bride who, prior to this marriage, had either been widowed or
divorced. Specifically, is her maiden name given first, followed by
ozvegy/elvalt and then followed by her previous husband's surname, or
is the meaning just the reverse?

I have been doing transcription of Marriage records of 1881. The records
which I transcribed were clearer:
One record for example is: Ozv Gansl szul Grunwald Katalin.
In here it is clear that the word Ozv accompanies the married name, and
Grunwald is the maiden name.

divorced. Specifically, is her maiden name given first, followed by
ozvegy/elvalt and then followed by her previous husband's surname, or
is the meaning just the reverse?
Here are some examples:
