A mystery in an Arolsen record found in Yad Vashem #poland

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

I need your assistance with an information card photo >from Arolsen.
I found it while researching in Yad Vashem and all known details such
as maiden name, birth date and place match my great grandmother, Rosa
BECKER born LEVY.

She was born in Tuchel, married and after WW1 moved with the family to
Frei Stadt Danzig, now Gdansk.

One of her daughters had married a German, as a result was expelled
from the family for a few years at least. This daughter, Lotte with
her husband and children lived throughout WW2 and afterwards in
Flensburg near Denmark, very far >from Danzig.

I am wondering why there is a mention of Flensburg when it states that
Rosa died in Danzig. Her daughter's address at the time is my only
current connection. Any suggestions will be welcomed.

The card is displayed in ViewMate

Thanks in advance,

Dubiecko #galicia

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Dear friends,

I have a collection of photos >from Dubiecko, which were taken in the
1930s or even before. Some are of my grandfather and his cousin but
most are unidentified.

I got the photos >from Mr. Moshe LEFLER (JAWORNIKER) who was the editor
of the Dubiecko Yizkor book. Some of them were printed in this book.
Unfortunately, Mr Lefler passed away last year and I wish to continue
his work in documenting Dubiecko Jewish community.

In an attempt to find who is in the photographs I will gladly send them
(either on CD or upload somewhere) to anyone interested.

If anyone lived in Dubiecko before WWII or knows older people who used to live
there and might have known the BRONER or MARCH families I would be most
interested to hear about that.

If anyone has pre WWII photos >from Dubiecko (either unidentified photos or of the
families listed below), please contact me.


Thanks for your help,

Hebrew books about Danzig #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

This is a message for our Israeli members. Eliyahu Stern wrote three books
in Hebrew about Danzig Jewry, but I do not know any details about their
content, and I have not heard >from anyone who does. SIG member Tamar Amit
has located these books in many Israeli libraries, and I would appreciate
hearing >from anyone who would be willing to visit one or two of these
libraries and describe the books' content. Depending on their content, we
might want to seek permission to reprint translations of sections of them on
our website, or to incorporate information >from them into databases.

The only library with all three books is at Emek Yezreel College.
Ben-Gurion U., Bar-Ilan U., Hebrew U., Haifa U., Oranim College, National
Library, and Yad Vashem each have two of the three. Tel-Aviv U., Seminar
Ha-Kibbutzim College, Sapir College, Tel-Hai College, Kaye College, Beit
Berl College, Gordon College, David Yellin College, Jordan Valley College,
and Tel-Aviv Public Libraries each have one.

If you are interested, please contact me before visiting a library, so we
avoid duplication. If you have or are familiar with one of Eliyahu Stern's
books, please contact me.

Thanks very much and best regards,

I think that the latter Ashkanasi mass immigration
steamrolled this fascinating long time established
community of which there are many records,
As did the mass Eastern European influx after 1880 submerge the Dutch Ashkenazim Cest la vie.

I have started getting information on my Yichos Brief and I have gotten
an amazing response to the WEISSBRODT SCHAPIRA letter .I have 1100 names
in my tree that connect up . I have 188 names that are not connected and
usually i have 2 or 3 people with the same name and half the time they are
spelled differently. If you send me 2 or 3 of your names there is no way
i can know if they connect it to my 3 names. What i need is ***small trees***
from people who have relatives with the same names or close. Plus i need
other names in your family to see if they match. I have found that most of the
time there is no match but 2 times because i had the small tree
everything fell into place .I pesterd one man >from England for a tree and sure
enough the mans second cousin had married my third cousin and i got an
email >from a new relative .i had all his infromation including his great grand
mother that he didn't know the name. In my family I have quite a few that
married 1st cousins 2nd cousins and cousins of cousins and one cousin
that died her husband wrote to the mother in law i want to stay in the
family . Do you have another daughter . which he married and had more children
with .

My question is how does someone in Israel access these items?

If you can find something in the NY Times,
then you could look at appropriate film for Brooklyn where you will
hopefully find a more detailed article for a local resident.
