Christopher Massur <cmassur@...>
 

Dear readers,
This week on Dutch television it was announced, that claims for art
confiscated during the German occupation of the Netherlands still can be
claimed by descendants, even though the deadline was already due.

Most prominent case: Goudstikker (google).
Unclaimed art pieces will remain state property [according to this TV report].

Searching for BLUM. #france

Viktor Lewin
 

Subject: Searching for Tuvye BLUM.
From: Viktor Lewin < viklewin@... >
Date: November 30, 2006.

Shalom,
For the past five years I have been researching the pre-war Jewish
community of Losice, Poland. During this time I have also been involved with
the restoration of it's cemetery and it's 1500 matzevot.
Looking through The Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names I came
across the names of Ryfka and Shaul BLUMENKRANC only to discover that they
were in the Losice Ghetto around the year of 1941. The submitter of this
information was the son/brother - Tuyve BLUM - in 1990. The address given
was Antwerpen, Belgium. It has been sixteen years since this submission and
I can not find any record of Tuvye BLUM in Antwerpen, Belgium.
I would like to make contact with him in order to learn about his
family's experience in Losice. Hopefully someone in this group can be of
some assistance.
I thank you for your time.
Viktor Lewin < viklewin@... > Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

All additions have been flagged at the alphabetical index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. You can check
whether a yizkor book for your town has been published at the Yizkor
Book Database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html. You
can check whether there is an article on your town in a Pinkas
HaKehillot volume by consulting the table of contents for the
appropriate volume at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html under Regions. The
tables of contents for all 19 volumes of the Pinkasim have now been
translated and are online. Please consider translating an article
about your ancestral town (all are in Hebrew) or financially
supporting a translation. Contact me privately to discuss the
options. In December we will have online a good number of
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot Germany, due to the response
to the recent addition of the tables of contents >from these volumes.

Many thanks to the donors of translations and the donors of money to
the Yizkor Book Projects.

New books in the JewishGenMall #rabbinic

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

We'd like to bring your attention to the following new additions to
the wealth of books, and other items of interest already available.

"Escape".... A Jewish Scandinavian family in the Second World War.
The story of Jews in Scandinavia >from medieval times through the
upheavals of the 20th century, told in the context of the national
movements, attitudes and policies that are inseparable >from history.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Refuge" ...Surviving the Nazi Occupation of Poland: Memoirs of
Kalman Horowitz The story of his escapes >from death and survival in
the forests of Poland is told by Leo, son of Kalman. This book
contains salvaged photographs as well as those depicting
experiences. A memorial to Kalman Horowitz, and to all the others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Let Them Journey" True stories uniting the past with the future,
told in simple words by the people describing their lives and giving
the reader an informative panorama of the varied Jewish experiences
in the 20th century. Especially appropriate for young adults who
can benefit >from the stories of Jewish life in the Diaspora.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Flight To Survival" The compelling account of a coming of age story
of a young woman's bravery and will to live. In simple prose, often
laced with her own brand of humor, Peninah Cypkewicz-Rosin tells of
her life >from the time the Nazis invaded her home town in 1939, to
ultimate survival in Eretz Yisrael in 1945.

revenue it generates goes towards support of all the programs and
projects we provide. The books we are announcing above are just a
tiny portion of the offerings available at <
