Bialystok Yizkor Ceremonies -- 62nd Anniversary of Liquidation of Bialystok Ghetto #poland

Mark Halpern
 

The period of 16-23 August 1943 marked the end for Jewish Bialystok. In
The Bialystoker Memorial Book, it is stated:

"During this period the final liquidation of the ghetto took place,
marked by heroic resistance of the ghetto Jews against the monstrous
oppressors. In that sorrowful week the ghetto was completely wiped off
the face of the earth, the resistance crushed in a wave of blood and
murder of the remaining 40,000 martyrs and Jewish Bialystok was turned
into a huge heap of ashes and dust."

Two ceremonies will commemorate this dark period in Bialystok's history
and the bravery of those who fought to the end.

In Bialystok, the commemoration will start at 12 Noon at the Memorial to
the Shoah Victims at the Zabia Street Ghetto Cemetery. Speeches by the
Mayor of Bialystok, a representative of the Israeli government, a
representative of the Jewish Community, and special guests >from overseas
will be followed by Kadish and the laying of wreaths and flowers to
honor the Bialystoker martyrs who perished during the Holocaust. After
the Ceremony, at 2:00 PM, all are invited to the Muzeum Wojska Polskiego
to view the exhibits, including "Bialystoker Jews at the Front during
World War II."

If you happen to be in Poland at this time, please try to attend.

In Israel, The Society of Former Residents of Bialystok and Surroundings
will hold the 62nd Remembrance Assembly at Kiryat Bialystok in Yehud.
The memorial will take place at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, 24 August 2005
near the Memorial Monument in the square of the Great Synagogue on Iccak
Melamed Street in Yehud.

If you live in Israel or happen to be visiting, please try to attend.

Re: Genealogy and calendar dates #poland

In response to George's note, my great-grandfather's birth certificate from
Dubienka, Poland, 1874 documented two dates - the 16th and 28th of December
as his date of birth. I was not sure which one would correspond to our
current calendars. (I hadn't done my research on the Gregorian vs. Julian).

Perhaps someone can clarify this for me: Poland converted >from the Julian to

the Gregorian calendar system in 1582. However, following the Third
Partition of Poland in the late 1700s, it became part of the Russian Empire,

which remained on the Julian Calendar until 1918. So, when one finds a
birth, marriage, or death date in pre-1918 Polish civil documents, does one
assume the date given is in Julian (Old Style) or Gregorian (New Style)
form?

I have a 1920 family wedding group photo taken in Paris at a building
with this sign... "Bonvalet Entree Des Salons". What is known about Bonvalet ?

There was a restaurant named Restaurant Bonvalet with large rooms (salons)
where weddings could take place. It was in Paris, Boulevard du Temple.

GINSBERG and STRASSBOURG #france

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

Hello again!

Anna GINSBERG (Nov 1880 - Jul 1950) was, according to
her gravestone in King Williamstown (South Africa),
born in Strassbourg. Her father was Leo GINSBERG born
either in Breslau or Beuthen, and her mother was
Louise, née HOEXTER (? HOECHSTER). Her father Leo
apparently fought for the Prussians in the 1870
conflict. When she was born, the city of her birth
would have been under Prussian control.

Where would I be able to obtain a copy of Anna's birth
certificate, and should it be found, is it likely to
indicate her father's profession?

My father's first cousin, Piroska VERO was married
to Zoltan VERO b.
Nyirbator 1905. I recently discovered that his
parents were Abraham
WEISZBERGER and Szofia FELDMESSER >from Nyirbator.
Zoltan and his
brother Dr. Laszlo WEISZBERGER both died while
serving in the Hungarian
Labor Battalion. They had a sister Iren b. 1903
who survived and was
in Debrecen in 1945 after the war. She was
married to Jozef LESSER.

Piri and her 4-year old daughter Marika survived
Strasshof. After the
war they left Debrecen for Budapest and by
December 1949 Piri had
remarried to a man named Bandi(Andras), possibly
not Jewish, who had a
17-year old son.

My great-aunt Piri was born in Sepsiszentgyorgy,
Hungary, now Sfatu
Georgiu, Romania, to Roszi MOSKOVITS, my paternal
grandmother's oldest
sister, and Deszo MARKUS. The Debrecen records
incorrectly list Piri's
mother's maiden name as MARKOVITS rather than
MOSKOVITS.

I'm trying to find out what happened to Piri,
Bandi, and their
children. I recall that my father Elemer NEUMANN,
who was born in
Hungary, was
contacted by some cousins in 1956 and asked for
help with immigration.
I believe that the family could not enter the US
and may have ended up
in Argentina or Chile. Unfortunately, my dad died
in 1969 and I don't
have any other relatives,names,or records.

Please get in touch if this blended family sounds
familiar. Piri
(Piroska) would now be more than 90 and Bandi
would be at least that
old.
Piri's daughter Marika (Maria) would be about 63.
This family was
living in Budapest in 1949 and may have emigrated
to South America
after 1956.

I'll be in Budapest next month and would
